there is a marching band in my uterus

15 Jul

Mother Nature thou art a heartless bitch.  Since my last IUI I have had all of one menstrual cycle, today #2 decided to show up.  I go on vacation in a little over a week.  For about the last decade when my cycle does decide to show up it is either 1.) medically/chemically induced, 2.) Lasts for over a year for some unknown reason or 3.) makes me feel like I”m going to die.   Currently it’s #3.  I don’t just get cramps, I get magical cramps that make me vomit.


Seriously, this better be done with by next week.  I’m road tripping my happy butt clear across the country with my husband for two weeks.  Part of our trip is at a romantic bed & breakfast, pretty sure if this is still going on there isn’t going to be much romance happening.  I am not a happy camper.

There is a part of me that wants to try and look at it in a positive way and think “Huzzah, Metformin you are doing your job!!” – but seriously, the timing is pretty sucky so realistic me slaps down positive me every time I try to tell myself that.   Even my husband who is usually Mr. Sunshine & Rainbows couldn’t even manage to put a good spin on this.

    That sucks! I just finished a monstrous AF a couple days ago. It got so bad I thought I was going to have to go to the hospital. The doctor said it was just my body starting to function again after losing a decent amount of weight. Hope she leaves you soon so you can enjoy your trip!

    That is the worst!!! I have been pretty fortunate not to have such severe side effects from AF, but I have noticed since I had the HSG and multiple IUI’s my periods have been MUCH worse than they ever have with the amount of pain and cramps. I always wondered about that? Anyway, I am SO sorry about the timing of it all…I hope you have a great trip!

    That sucks! I hope AF goes away soon so you can have a wonderful, relaxing, romantic trip!

    These other ladies are right, that does suck! Why are we so hard to figure out?! I hope it is the metformin doing it’s job. And I hope you can get over it and have a wonderful time next weekend.
