coupla' things

My period seems to have stopped. I had one medium day, one super light day, and now I'm barely spotting. AF usually hangs out a good 5-7 days for me, so I have no idea what's up. If I had an anovulatory cycle, would that also produce a (waaaay) lighter than normal period? I haven't ever had one that I know of, so I have no idea what kind of impact they have on other parts of the cycle.

I am feeling extremely withdrawn right now. I have an overwhelming desire to curl myself up into the tightest little ball and stay there until mid-summer. I'm completely overwhelmed by the job v. IVF situation (and probably our impending IVF in general) and M and I are as busy as we can possibly be preparing for all 4 of our parents to descend upon our house one short week from today. As a result, I've been a totally absent friend, emailer, blog commenter... you name it. I'm really sorry if I owe you correspondence of any kind. You're in good company. My inbox is a disaster. It's not that I don't love you, I'm just Really Overwhelmed and needing to turn inward for a while. This hasn't stopped me from reading all of you obsessively, but I don't seem to be in a space to put much out into the world myself. I think things will be better after this weekend. We'll do a blitz on the house and yard, and M and I will have some time to catch up and center ourselves.

The cycle that I was anovulatory, I had a different period. Most notably, I had NO cramps. Odd. (And delightful.) I don't know if it was related. I'm sorry abt withdrawn, but I totally get it. Good luck with the big family visit. And good luck resolving the IVF vs. job thing. Most important (imho) is that you feel good about yourself and banish guilt for wanting a family when you want it. Hugs.

I've no idea about the annovulatory /light period thing, just hoping it won't set your plans back any further. We too are finding the gear change into IVF difficult to adjust to and are feelinging quiet. Good luck with the visiting parents - how brave of you to venture all 4 at once!
