My period introduced itself yesterday with some pretty strong cramps. Like all of my cycles I secretly thought I might still be pregnant right up until my period started.
I suppose a period is called a period because it happens periodically. We all know that it is also an ending, like the end of a sentence (period). As in, you are definitely NOT pregnant (period).
In all cycles an ending is also a beginning. I emailed my RE today to tell him my news so that we could start planning our next steps.
Hopefully this ending will be the beginning of something good.
