But first…I got another negative HPT this morning and still no sign of my period. I’m now getting super frustrated. I’ve never had a cycle this long without getting my period except that one (now a miraculous) time that I was pregnant. I also have no more pregnancy tests as I only bought a two pack. So I need to go buy more…I might just wait to see if my period shows up and if it hasn’t by Thursday morning, take another test before my consult with Oregon.
Has anyone had an annovulatory cycle? Do you know why they happen? Is it normal? What should I do?
I ordered a new BB thermometer and it should arrive on Thursday so I can check and see where my temp is if AF hasn’t shown up…
I do a lot of work in the world of oncology (cancer). I used to be the director of communications for an international non-profit supporting people with cancer and I currently do PR for various companies and non-profits in the oncology world. If one is facing a cancer diagnosis, there are organizations and people to help you navigate the challenging decisions that come with a cancer diagnosis – which doctors, which treatment, how to pay for it, etc.
Over the past week or so, as we’ve thought out how we should or shouldn’t move forward with SIRM and looking into Oregon and Colorado, I’ve realized that it would be so much help to have someone who has done all of the research, understands the science and what novel treatments are available, etc. Someone who will lay out the choose your own adventure path so that I can see what is ahead for me if I choose A, B or C…I want a patient navigator and there isn’t anyone who currently exists.
It might be my next brilliant idea that I put into plan.
We have decided NOT to move forward with Dr. Sher at this time. The pressure that I felt just isn’t a good feeling. I’ve decided to hold out and see what ORM and CCRM have to say and try one of those two first. I’m leaning towards CCRM and I have the earliest appointment possible with them on Nov. 22 – Dr. Schoolcraft is not available until the end of December so I’m going with one of the other docs – Dr. Gustofson, who looks really young but if he’s on the CCRM team, I’m sure he’s good!
Gluten-free eating is still happening but keeping a food diary got tiring 😉 Still no hives!
Winston is so freaking cute. He slept in my lap this morning while I took a conference call. He’s now napping in the kitchen. He slept all the way through the night and woke up at 6:15 to go potty. He’s now completely paper-trained. I’m so proud!
