Sunday, Sunday, SUNDAY!

I have a half-day off tomorrow to take mom for her nuclear stress test. At least I'll get to spend a couple of hours working Sudoku puzzles. :)

Mom's blood sugar is still all over the place, but at least I know she's eating, taking her meds, and testing regularly. Her blood pressure is looking much better.

I guess it's normal to feel love, pressure, attachment, compassion, and resentment cycling through you as you take care of a parent.


I have one question - if you aren't on birth control pills, how do you know when you're going to start your period??? We still haven't decided between tubal or vasectomy.


I guess I don't have much to say tonight, I just thought I needed to get a few things down. I haven't been posting too regularly, and I hope to remedy that soon.

It is good to have Scott home for a week though. He brought me a really nice Minnie Mouse sleep shirt. YAY!

Re:period...count 28 days (or however many days you average) from the first day of your last period and you should start on about that day. I figure a day or so before or after that date is when I'll start. I had my tubes tied after Katie, so I haven't been on bcp for almost 3 years now (actually longer... more like almost 4). Hope it helps.

All throughout the month of February I was off my pills, because I waited too long to go to Planned Parenthood and have the tests done and all that happy bullshit. I was so stressed out about starting my period so I could start my new pills, I think it ended up being a week late. Usually though, it may start a few days after your normal starting day when you're on the pills. (If that makes any sense.) My usual day was Thursday, and I started on Saturday. It's just a problem of you worrying when you'll get it. Heh. :\

If you have a regular cycle, you can count days. I think this is why a lot of women keep track of their periods on a calendar, though your mileage may vary with that.

Mine has never been regular enough to predict from a calendar or tracking software. (I used a free web-based service for a few years and befuddled it at attempting to predict my cycle length.) I can usually guess when mine is close to starting because I see a sharp uptick in blemishes.

I have always had a really irregular cycle. It was so weird how we ended up getting pregnant. It was on day 31 or so - way past when we were supposed to be 'fertile'. I haven't been off birth control pills (without being pregnant) since I was about 16, so this is so strange to me. :)
