I'm waiting!

No cramping, no spotting, no bleeding, and the test still says no. I don't really know what else to do but wait this out. When I planned on stopping my pills, this is not what I imagined happening. I was supposed to get my post-BCP bleed. And hopefully my rebound ovulation. My issue this whole time has been excessive bleeding with the pills... not this.

Oh, body... you're funny. A real joker!

I guess I'll go ahead and start charting, see what happens, and go from there. Maybe pick up some ovulation predictor tests, just in case. Maybe I'll start bleeding. Maybe I won't. Maybe I'll ovulate. Maybe... eh, I probably won't.

I'm having serious regrets over trying this damned four-phasic birth control. I mean, what is up with that anyway? Only two inactive pills in the entire pack? Everything I read online says that you're supposed to get your bleed during those pills, but I'm 2 inert pills and 2 days out... nothing. I knew what worked for me in the past and, while the bleeding was annoying, I should have just toughed it out. I know there's nothing I can do about it now, but I am extremely frustrated.

I'm scheduled for a repeat TSH draw on the 7th, but I don't know if we'll be able to get that done. My new insurance card might not be here for another week and a half, so we'll have to talk to them about how we'll handle that. It depends on how it's coded (so if it's out of pocket, it won't matter), and if I need my insurance card I'll either have to pay OOP and then request reimbursement from my new insurer, or just reschedule when I get my card.

Grumble. grumble. grumble.

The best laid plans and all that, am I right?

Better luck with taming the unruly body!

I'm just catching up here and the mind f* of testing like that must have been torture! Although I know pregnancy is a terrifying process for you (totally understandably), I am hoping that you end this wait sooner than later!

How annoying! Hoping your body decides to go one way or the other soon.

Oh my gosh, insurance is so frustrating. We even have good insurance, but it still has been a nightmare to navigate!
I love lazy days with Davie Ann. She's the most fastinating person I know. :)
