WHAT? What is that title? CD1?




Today marks my first natural CD1 since my freshman year of college*. I woke up with mild cramping and thought I needed to poop. No poop, but I did find need for a tampon. It took some digging, but I finally found a slightly dusty ziplock bag of OB tampons. I honestly can’t remember the last time I opened that bag. I mean, do these things expire?


Judging by how light things have been so far I suspect this is an anovulatory cycle, but still, I’m pretty excited that my body did this on its own and it gives me a tiny shred of hope that one day we might actually get to choose if we have another baby. For right now, though, it means that we need to start using some non-hormonal birth control because this infertile is in no way ready for another baby. Nope, we have too much adventuring to do with our one right now. The world is big, and our small family is ready to take it on.

Boy it feels good to write this.

*For those trying to do the math, I turn 35 in October.

    Hi, i just started following your blog recently, and writing myself recently too. I’m infertile, with irregular menstruation, and I also get excited when it turns up 🙂 I just wanted to let you know that i know what that feels like. I’ve excitedly told friends before, but they have kids so i feel a bit odd telling them i’m excited that i have my period.
