CD 2...

Well, AF came on Sunday morning. Not too much fanfare or upset, to tell the truth. I'm more focused on getting ready for IVF than stressing out over my monthly failures.

Did I just write MY monthly failures? Like I could do something about it? Sigh. Last month was just like most of the others - we had great timing - but it didn't work out. I wonder if there is a breaking point. Where you more expect for your period to come, rather than hoping it won't? At least this month I didn't have the charts to go over obsessively, and she was a day early, instead of 4 days LATE like last month!

Tomorrow I'll be going in for my CD 3 bloodwork that I need to start with the IVF testing. And I'll keep on working out and eating right... and trying to lose weight to get ready for my RE appointment on the 29th. One thing I'm a bit upset about today... I've been weighing myself each morning for the past 3 weeks. I've seen a nice steady weight loss - but the day I got my period, I went up 3 pounds from the day before, and another pound this morning! WTF! I'm really really hoping it's just water retention and not me honestly putting that weight back on! Augh!

Sorry AF showed. That's so frustrating. Good luck with the IVF workup though. It's great that you are getting started. xx

I know it's difficult to do (and I'm a hypocrite, because I did it myself when I was on a diet), but you really shouldn't weigh yourself every day. Then, when you have one or two days (like during your period) when you have a lot of water weight, you feel like a failure! It's better to do it once a week--although it's easier said than done, I know!

I'm sure it's just the water weight.
