First up: Stupid Stork (who I celebrity stalk now because her blog is so damn funny) has started a Manly Monday weekly blog post which I have joined up with. Every Monday, I will be posting a very manly fact, quip, or moment about my manly husband which should prove entertaining because my husband is only slightly more sane than I am, and more hairy (even with my PCOS). Unfortunately, I realized that I missed the first Manly Monday post this week, so I will start next Monday. But as a tease at what may be revealed about Hubs on Manly Mondays:
This Monday, Hubs told me about some internet porn he had watched recently with what he said was, “really freaky music”. We’re very open with the porn watching in our household, by the way. Hubs still has the sex drive of a 19 year old, so unless I want to boink every night, porn it is. I look to porn as his “penis babysitter” when I’m tired, need to shower, or have laundry to fold. In all honesty, after 2 years in a former relationship where I basically had to beg for sex, Hub’s awesome libido is a true bonus, and I wouldn’t trade it for all the “cuddle nights” in the world. But anyway: I digress.
Hub’s porn soundtrack show and tell was all done as I was making breakfast in the kitchen, and he was in the adjacent office. He proceeded to play the porn and make me listen to the “soundtrack” which consisted of really insane angry techno music and a couple screaming in a very unsexy way while doing the nasty.
ME: (stirring the oatmeal) Wow. That is scary.
HUBS: Yeah, I know.
ME: Do you want any oatmeal?
In other WTF moments this week, I woke up to my period this morning. Yeah. My body has no idea what the hell to do with me.I will admit that I took one Provera pill on Wednesday, but then stopped when I realized that if I continued on that track and timed everything out I would be ovulating this next cycle while I was in Europe. I figured I’d take the other 9 Provera pills a couple of weeks from now so I would be out of the ovulation danger zone while I’m in France. I’m no expert on Provera, but would one measly little pill have been enough to make me get a period 6 days later when my progesterone was basically 0 5 days ago?
As of last week, my blood work showed no possible ovulation, and even if I ovulated AFTER the test, that was only 5 or 6 days ago. So this period is just a hormonal spotty bleed. There is no red blood–more redish brown and watery…Is this CD1? Does this mean I start 100mg of Clomid in 2 days??
My only other explanations for AF right now are that I had acupuncture on Saturday which could have done the trick? I seriously doubt the PCOS friendly diet I’ve been on for 3 days could have jump started me again…
As far as the diet goes, it’s a LOT easier than last time because I have some set food items I know I can eat. I’m not starving all the time, and I seem to be managing the sugar cravings all right (although last night was a bit of a shit show.)
