So, I left off yesterday’s thoughts positively – that I would continue to test for an LH surge and would pretty much flaunt it in the faces of my doctor and his staff when it happened a little later than they were anticipating.
This morning’s LH test pretty much pounded the nail into the coffin of this cycle. The test line was lighter than yesterday, which indicates that the LH surge didn’t happen. The line doesn’t get darker, darker, darker, lighter, lighter, darker, darker, darker – BINGO. Once I see it starting to get lighter, it will eventually disappear, and my cycle will start toward it’s end to start the ball rolling again next month.
The silver lining in all of this is that thanks to the medication schedule the doctor has me on – my period is more regular. It’s still not like clockwork by any means, but at least I’m not waiting 6 months for things to get started again. I’ve been closer to 35-40 days between cycles.
My plan for today involves waiting until the doctor’s office opens, and calling to make an appointment to discuss our options. Hopefully they can get us in either today or tomorrow to see the doctor. And, hopefully the doctor will have something good to tell us? (Please? We can really use some good news this week.)
