Frustration & lies

Remember earlier when I said earlier this week was CD 1? Yeah, turns out I lied, and it was just brief spotting. This happened the last time after a failed IUI cycle too, back in November. The R.E.'s nurse said she was surprised that I didn't have an abnormally short cycle, but instead - it drug out to epic proportions - and lasted 36 days.

Today, is CD 35. THIRTY-FIVE! And I am frustrated. Frustrated with my body, with the move this weekend, with just everything. I am frustrated because I know I'm not pregnant and I hate that my previously normal 27-29 day cycles are apparently no more.

Oh, and my boss just told me I'm going to have to work both Saturday and Sunday because we have a client emergency.

Um. How am I going to do that, move my MIL out of her house and into her new one, and move us into our new house? And um - pack. Right I haven't really managed to do that either yet. Or deal with the Granny situation.

I'm a pretty good at multi-tasking, but even I have not managed to figure out how to be in two places at once. If I make it through this weekend without a mental breakdown it's going to be a miracle - second only perhaps to the Nun Bun - or maybe the Grilled Cheese Sandwich.

Sorry about the long cycle. (I've had them ever since I got off the pill.) Very frustrating.

And, working weekends sucks, I know.

Hang in there.

I know that being several states away, I cannot help with the packing/moving. I would if I could. Hoever, the offer still stands that I will help out down here if need be.

Moving and overtime. That's not fair at all. I hope you make it to Monday.

Oh no, you have a lot on your plate right now. Well, take it one hour at a time and just do the best you can. In the end, things will all work out somehow, though it probably isn't going to feel very good in the process. Hang in there!

Forgive me if I've missed something, but can you not hire movers to help you out? I'm sorry about your Granny. I know you feel like you are breaking a promise, but based on the information you gave us, you really have no choice but to get her the help and support she needs. Take care.

I hope you made it through the weekend okay, and that since you worked over your days off you'll get to take a few extra this week so you can settle in to your new digs without so much stress!

I hope you made it through the weekend without losing your mind. I don't know that I would have, in such a situation, but then you are much stronger than I am.
And I am right with you on the long cycles. They suuuuck.

No rest for the weary, apparently. Hope you are surviving OK.

I hope you were able to make it through the weekend, you had a lot going on. I am with you on the long cycles - its torturous.
