Another Weekend Ruined

I've just sent Hubby off to spend the weekend with our friends, meanwhile I am home alone. All because my period showed up 5 days early and I don't want to risk ruining the weekend for my Hubs or being ill at our friends' house. My usual symptoms include waking through the night in pain, sweating, flooding, diarrhoea, nausea/sickness and crying! While nothing major has happened yet, just the thought of being away from home and suffering has scared me into staying. It's not fair. My body well and truly hates me. I had a dull ache all down my left side yesterday and then a stabbing like pain there this morning and I knew it wasn't going to be a good day. Last month I had to cancel a spa day with my friend because of it and now this. I wish I could go back on the pill, but as we are trying for a baby, it's not an option right now. At least, when I was taking it, I could be the one in control. As it is, I feel like I am a slave to it. :-(

I completely understand what you are saying. My life is based around my periods I plan when to go out with my friends and even then sometimes I have to cancel. Leading up to my period I never make plans and I sometimes I feel like a let down because I can't do that certain day or go to a certain event. And if I have made plans near my period I'm always stressing that I might start and the fear of starting if I'm out of the house. My worst nightmare is starting my period when I'm not in the house I don't leave the house a couple of days before!

It's awful isn't it. Can't wait to start IVF so that we can (hopefully) have a family and then I can address it permanently.

Good luck with the IVF and I hope you are successful!!
