Hurry UP Period!!

I took my last birth control pill on Saturday, and now I'm waiting for my period to arrive. I had some promising cramps on my jog this morning, but I'm not feeling anything now. I don't think I've ever been so eager for my period to start. It's bizarre how I took the pill for several years, most recently in November 2006, and yet I cannot remember how long it generally took between stopping the pill and starting the flow! Weird, huh? Anyway, if my period does not start by tomorrow, I will not have my suppression bloodwork and ultrasound on Thursday, and then everything will be delayed. I asked about it, and it sounds like it only delays things by a day or two (until Aunt Flo appears), but it's making me a bit antsy.

I now have two ugly bruises on my abdomen. I don't know why 2 of my 8 injections (the two most recent) have resulted in bruises. I think I was sort of injecting as I was withdrawing the needle, instead of injecting all of the solution while the needle was completely buried. Maybe it also has something to do with the fact that I've been on aspirin for a couple of weeks now. Well, I guess there is plenty of more time for self-experimentation. I never thought that I would look forward to starting 3 injections per day, but I am really eager to get to that part.

Sorry for the utter boringness of this update. I hope you all are doing OK!

Edit to add: My period finally arrived a few hours after I posted this. Onward ho!

Congrats on your period arriving! Can you send your lucky vibes my way now please? I want to get started with my stims, too!

BTW, thanks for saying that I look like Keri Russell. People have told me to watch Felicity to check out the comparisons. Thanks for being so sweet!

One final comment, my money is on the ASA too for your nice recent bruises. BOOO! But, hopefully it will all be worth it!

Good luck with your next step and don't worry I stomach's all bruised too.

Glad that AF finally showed--she knows how to be a PAIN!
