I talked to my nurse yesterday about how late my cycle is. I was upfront with her that I was just worrying, and needed her reassurance. She was very kind and gentle.
She told me about how my medications would be adjusted (no vivelle or change in leuprolide until a certain number of days after my period starts).
She told me it takes some women 10 days to get a period after stopping the progesterone. That made me feel better too.
Most importantly, she told me that it wouldn't affect my lining or next month's cycle in any way. Deep down I think I knew this, but I needed to hear it from her. She also told me that it's ok to call if I'm feeling worried. I won't pester them with this. Seriously- my anxiety is enough to drive me (and probably hubby) crazy, I don't need to drive them crazy too. Just her saying those words was nice to hear and did the trick for me.
For the time being, D has forgotten about the pregnancy test too. So, I guess this helped him too.
We will continue to wait.
PS) Is anyone else in a cold climate and starting to feel a little stir crazy from all of this weather this winter? Yesterday D and I wanted to get out for a walk but it was just too cold! With doctor's orders to keep my heart rate below 140, I don't know what else to do for exercise when the outdoors are unfriendly. Anyone have any suggestions?
