TTC Friday: Sunday Edition

Alternate title: Unremarkable.

It's been a while since I posted anything of substance (The Virgin Suicides review is coming, I promise!) and a longer while since the last TTC Friday update. I reached a point where I needed a break from thinking/talking/writing/reading about it. The stress and frustration has started to affect other areas of my life, including work, and I needed to take a step back.

Over the break, I went for a pelvic ultrasound to check for cysts. The clinic said that my doctor's office would have the results within two days. Not so much. After sweating it out for a full week, all I got was "unremarkable." My insides are unremarkable. No cysts, or anything else out of the ordinary. Great. Then WTF, body?

This is exactly what I was afraid would happen, that I'd end up back at square one. I don't really even know what to do anymore beyond continuing what we're already doing and waiting. After a full year, I can try to get referred to a Reproductive Endocrinologist, who may be able to give me more insight. Or maybe I need to accept that this is my "normal" now. I don't know. Tomorrow begins month #9. Cycle 6 started just over a week ago. I'm over this whole thing.


  1. I'm so sorry you're frustrated. I have my fingers crossed that it Will happen for you soon!

  2. so sorry for your frustrations. :( I think about you a lot. I guess it's good that nothing bad is going on in there, but I know irregular cycles are still pretty frustrating.

  3. Lots of hugs to you - TTC can be so frustrating, especially when you have irregular cycles. It's. Good that there's nothing wrong, but can understand you annoyance with the whole thing. A break is probably a good thing!

  4. Thanks, ladies! I really appreciate the hugs and thoughts. It'll be ok. I didn't intend for this post to come across as "woe is me" as it maybe does. I'm in a better place about it now than I was a few weeks ago, but the ultrasound results did throw me for a bit of a loop. I was hoping for answers and ended up with more questions.
