CD1

EXACTLY on time - a 27-day cycle, my standard when my cycles are regular, with peak day on CD14 and a 13-day LP. So I was definitely expecting it today. I had some slight tightness - like a 1% version of cramps - several days this past week, which is not normal for me, but I knew it was the tamoxifen, not pregnancy symptoms. In fairness, though, this was my first even close to healthy cycle since my surgery - on October 12. You know, in the year when I'm supposed to have my lifetime best chances of conception. So, it's CD1. I'm just sayin'.

(The plan, insofar as I have a plan, which I do not, is to take my remaining tamoxifen this month, and then hope that after that, my cycle gets the idea and returns to normal on its own. I think AYWH has taught us all a good lesson about being on tamoxifen indefinitely.)

Fortunately, I think it's almost time for some more home decor photos.

  1. Good for you not mistaking tamoxifen for pregnancy. It's too easy to look at every little twinge as a pg symptom. It's amazing how much better women get at not doing that the further into the TTC world the travel. I hope your cycle does make its way back to normal. Mine has changed slightly since my laparoscopy more than a year ago, but I can't say what I've experienced isn't due to age.

  4. Boooo CD1....Get on clomid! ;) I love it! :) Even though my moodswings today could be clomid induced. :) Chuck the tamoxifen! :) Just my very humble opinion! ;)

    I hate those twinges....I have them every month....

    I'm so tired of TTC. :)

  6. I get twinges, sore boobs and all sorts of symptoms that other may say are "pg" symptoms.but for me are not.it's kind of funny. Oh well...Sounds like you are dealing with CD1 well. Blessings! And thanks for the comments on my last post. :)

  7. Hmmm, I'm trying Femara for my next cycle. Clomid was VERY, VERY bad for me (but I had stage 4 endo and associated nasties growing in my ladyparts!) and it made my cramps REALLY bad.

    I agree with Sew, this TTC business is getting old.

  9. I'm sorry that you have to deal with another CD1, but I'm glad to hear that your cycle finally had some normalcy. I hope your body has rebooted and will stick with the healthy cycles for a while.

    I'm looking for to seeing where you are house-wise and seeing some lovely pictures.

  10. I am glad to see that things are working out - in regards to regulating your cycle. (Oh and I am excited to see more home decor pics...bring em on!) Have a good rest of the week!

  11. I think you're doing the right thing, setting aside the tamoxifen for a bit, seeing what your body wants to do on its own. I know some gals love clomid, but I personally am an FSH kind of girl. :) Expensive, but man does it get those ovaries all jiggy!

    Anyway, looking forward to your decor meditations. And grateful for your thoughtful comment--wow, it must be hard to stand by and watch that situation. I never got that Steiner method never say no bs. Loony is the word. The world will constantly say no, never, and don't to you, so your parents better help you get ready for it...
