Well, a negative for me this morning. 14 dpo, and a good test, so we’re done here, I think. I’m pretty bummed, I felt our chances were solid this month.
I was a bit of a wreck yesterday: emotional and weepy, dizzy, crampy, and filled to the brim with anxiousness about this morning’s test. I should have just tested last night, but I got stubborn about it. Possibly all of those effects were good old fashioned PMS, but I think a lot of it was that I’d gotten myself worked up into a bit of a state.
Pea and I talked over breakfast about next steps. We think we’ll sneak another round of femara/IUI in this month, while opening channels of conversation with the other clinic, to set the stage to move to IVF. I figure there will be numerous hoops to jump through with them, so it might be good to get it started.
So here’s the new timeline:
I get my period, hopefully earlier than usual (3 days post-progesterone pill), or on time
Femara/IUI hopefully on time, again, as I have a wedding to get to that I was planning on leaving for on what will most likely be my cd 14. However, much as I do love this friend, I will skip a whirlwind trip to Ontario to make this cycle pan out without travel stress.
Success? If not, take mid-August/mid-September off, to go on vacation and just take a break. Start at the new clinic… September/October? It’ll depend on their timing, and the drug regimen, I suppose.
This last round of femara could work. The stats are pretty bad after 3 rounds, but maybe we’ll sneak through. I’m not quite ready to take a break, or to commit fully to IVF.
