I took 1 dose of Provera last night before bed, and I'm already bleeding.  It's never worked this quickly before

Day 2 of GF diet.  Kitchen on main floor is gluten-free zone.  All foodstuffs that might have even a trace of gluten have either been pitched or relegated to the pantry or the basement kitchenette.  Mostly I'm finding that I don't like the GF versions of stuff I used to eat with gluten nearly as well, but it's manageable.  And bonus, I found out my favorite cheese ball (I eat it all the time, not just parties) is GF! Also, Mom's Best Crispy Cocoa Rice > Cocoa Krispies!  It is chocolaty-er (which so far I can't say for most GF chocolate flavors.  Yay for a new favorite cereal!!!!

Did most of my GF shopping at Hy-Vee.  Everyone was so helpful!  The manager of the health food department told me to be super strict for 3 weeks--even to the point of drinking and cooking with bottled water.  If I notice no improvement, it's a bust.  If I feel better, I can slowly reintroduce *presumably* GF items like tap water, etc, that wouldn't gluten on the ingredient list but might be contaminated in transit.

Starting a gluten-free diet today has so far meant fasting today, as I can't find any gluten-free food in the house.

Trying to make a doctor's appointment to rule out ectopic pregnancy, since still negative pregnancy tests and no sign of AF.

Prayers would be appreciated.

I thought I was pregnant, but I'm not.  I think stress and illness delaying my period.  Recently learned from another mutant that MTHFR can cause a non-celiac gluten sensitivity.  So after vacation this weekend, next week, I am starting a gluten-free diet.  Hopefully, my diet and my next cycle will both start on Tuesday.
