Well, my wishful thinking didn't pan out. The spotting I was experiencing was indeed AF starting. That's okay though. It's a new cycle. A new chance.
I thought of some more acronyms you make see me use on here:
BFP - Big fat positive
BFN - Big fat negative
The above are in reference to pregnancy tests. For example, someone who is ttc may say, "I'm hoping for a BFP." In which they mean that they are hoping for a positive pregnancy test.
But anyways, here we are at the beginning of a new cycle. I'm a little unsure of why my last cycle was so much shorter than previous ones. In fact, I don't think I've had a cycle that short since I was on the BCP. I hope my luteal phase is still long enough for implantation. Especially since I think I Oed (ovulated) on cycle day 20 - that would mean only a 7 day LP (luteal phase) before I began bleeding. From what I've read that isn't quite long enough. But, who knows, maybe my body is still adjusting from the surgery in July.
It seems whenever I have baby fever, everyone is getting pregnant. I know two people who just gave birth, and another two people have just announced that they're pregnant. I've honestly lost count of how many people I know that are expecting. I pray that all of them have happy, healthy pregnancies. I look forward to joining the 'bump' club though.
