Three Days Late – The Difference a Year Makes

Last year when we were in actively trying to get pregnant and thought that it could happen easily, I waited and waited for my period to be late.

It was never late… at least not more than a few hours. I took countless pregnancy tests and each one came out negative. I never believed its accuracy until I actually saw the first sign of aunt flo.

I dreamed of being ‘late’ and wanted so badly for my period to disappear because it would have meant that we had a bundle of joy on the way.

I can predict my cycles almost down to the time of day aunt flo shows her face. For the first time since aunt flo entered my life at13…

My period is finally late

Three days late in fact.

Except I’m not overjoyed with thoughts of the wonderful possibility of being pregnant, I’m not busy trying to listen for pregnancy symptoms, I’m not about to burst with anticipation and I’m not rushing out to buy home pregnancy tests.

I know I’m not pregnant.

This month has been incredibly stressful for me and it probably delayed my ovulation, which means my period will surly be late. Never happened before, but there’s a first time for everything.

I’m finding it so difficult to get over what I discussed in my last post and I’m not mentioning it to BF. I think this will kill any hope he has and may even make him not want to bother with IVF.

At this point, I don’t even care if aunt flo is a bit late, as long as she eventually shows up some time this week so that my IVF schedule isn’t thrown off. Despite what I now understand about our chances, I still want to continue with IVF and hope for the best.
