I’m 8 days late.
At this point some women in my position would have bought a pregnancy test by now. I’m not really in that much of a hurry to do that though.
See, I’ve been down a long, bumpy road. It involved many missed periods, many negative test results and many tears shed.
Since reconfirming my PCOS condition last January I really haven’t given pregnancy a serious thought. I knew that if I want to conceive again, I’d most likely have to have medical treatment. Treatment that I do not have time for (fertility treatment is strictly time orientated) and also I cannot afford it.
I therefor continued to allow myself quick daydreams about an additional family member but would never linger on the thought too long.
For the most part my cycle has been ‘relatively’ regular give or take a few days. It’s just been a week but this time… it’s bothering me.
8 days. It sounds too many.
I keep telling myself that I should give it ANOTHER 8 days before I even consider taking a test. In my last pregnancy I experienced out of the ordinary symptoms at week 6. Its now week 5, surely by next week something’s got to give. Right?
But that’s the thing with PCOS.
It could simply be that my ovaries are overripe with multiple cysts which in turn has completely screwed my timing.
I guess only time will tell but in the interim it’s vital not to get any hopes up or even think of girl’s names. (I’ve decided on a boy’s name already *shh don’t tell*)
Now I’m just going to pull my hair out and then carry on with work as if this post never happened.
