This part is annoying

I'm hopefully finally done bleeding/spotting; today is CD 13. I had medium flow on CD 10 while my brother and I were at D's best friend's house visiting their brand new baby (it was a lovely reminder that my body doesn't work properly).  I'm so tired of bleeding for three weeks straight and having a 7-10+ day period.  It also interferes with intercourse since I'm bleeding for so long.   We use a couple days in the middle of the my cycle near ovulation and then it's another couple weeks before we do it again.  I'm ready for so good peak type mucus.  I need to start on my mucinex.  I forgot about it due to the bleeding, when I figured there was no point.

My trip to Austin went well.  I was pretty tired but I got to see my two of my brothers (BP and DF), my grandparents, and D's best friend, his wife and their new baby.  I also got to hold the baby for a while.  Since I was traveling, I haven't been following the Endo diet very well, so I need to get back on track with that.  I feel like I haven't spend much time with D lately, between the fact that he works most Saturdays, the couple evenings that I've worked, and the time he spends out with friends.

I don't know if I mentioned that my brother DF is finally engaged to his girlfriend of 9 1/2 years.  They are planning on a destination wedding in Hawaii next summer.  I'm sure it'll be fun but it means my grandparents cannot go to the wedding, plus it'll be expensive for D and I (although my parents have offered to help).  The other thing is that I might not even be able to go if I actually manage to get pregnant in the next five months or so.

The rest of the summer is pretty busy during the weekends.  We have 2 more weekends between now and the IF weekend August that we aren't traveling and don't have people visiting.  Next weekend, my dad will in Houston from Qatar on a business trip that happily just happens to fall over Father's Day weekend.  That means that we'll get to see both our dads for Father's Day.

I feel like this post is all over the place (even more than usual) and I apologize.  I also need to sit down and write up my faith story soon.


  1. that def would be frustrating! hope the bleeding stops soon and you are able to get back on track with some good CM!

  2. The continued bleeding - that stinks! I have been hoping (as I know you are ) that the surgery would help clear this up. Sorry to hear that it sounds like it is taking longer than expected.

    I LOVE the blog layout! I don't know if I ever told, but I love the turtle picture - so cute! Have fun visiting with your dad this weekend!

  3. Sorry too about all the bleeding. That sounds horrible. I hope a solution comes quickly and you conceive soon!!!

  4. I'm sorry to hear about the bleeding as well. I have never had this happened (I'm opposite...I sometimes don't bleed at all!) but can only imagine how frustrating it can be. I hope it stops soon!!! Sending prayers your way!
