So. Let's start our period, shall we?

Here is the thing. Mr. A's birthday is mid-February. I thought today would be CD1 (and, let's not be kidding ourselves that the beta wasn't right...), but so far no spotting. I understand that after stopping progesterone, it could take 7-10 days to start?!?! Unless I start within the next 6 days, there is a chance that we'd be doing our IUI on his birthday.

Happy birthday, sweetie. Time to head to the RE office!!

Pff.

Why must periods dilly dally when there is no baby in there? Let's get this new cycle on the road! The only positive I can see of being delayed is that I only have one more cartridge of follistim which will only last me 4 days, so if I don't start today, that gives me more time to get my meds replenished!! (This is actually something I am worried about, so I'm fine with starting tomorrow, but I really really don't want us to have to do the IUI on Mr. A's birthay...)

In other fun news, I have a "favorite things" post coming down the road! Also, I know I haven't posted any faith/reflective posts lately, and I hope it isn't coming across that I'm not considering God among all the events that have been happening recently- that couldn't be farther from the truth, really- but I'm just finding myself needing to reflect a little more before getting it down on "paper". Not to worry! I take my prayer list (for our intentions and for all of YOU and your intentions) with me every time Banana and I go out for our walks!

Wow - I didn't realize progesterone could delay your period that long! I will be taking progesterone for the first time this cycle, so this is great information.
Hope you get your IUI cycle right on track!

Mine came within a day or two of stopping the progesterone both times. Here's hoping you get a nice, quick start!

When I stopped my progesterone it took about two days or so for it to get here. Hope she shows.

I hope that AF comes in time so you do not have to worry about having your next IUI on your DH's bday! I look forward to reading your favorites post!

I'm so sorry. I'm in the same boat and I'm 9 dp P4, but of course mine was to induce a cycle.

My RE does a blood PG test I think around 12 dpo no matter what and I think, in part, so that you can stop the P4 and not have a delayed period. I doubt the P4 will cause this big of a delay every time, but if it do so again on your next cycle you may want to ask for a early test. Just a suggestion.
