Last night we had Chinese food for supper. DH's fortune cookie read,"An unexpected visitor will bring you good blessings." Wow.

Had some really bad cramping last night. Then this morning my temp dropped slightly. Implantation maybe? I am 7 dpiui/6 dpo today.

BFN this morning. Could be too early. I will wait until Wednesday to test again. Since Thursday, I have had sore nipples but not all the time; it comes and goes. But it was related to being cold because I was outside all weekend camping and it was very cold.

I tested this morning. BFN. Sad I used a Clear Blue digi, which it is sooo much harder to see "Not Pregnant" than a single line. I stared at it for a minute as if that was going to change anything.

I am taking it suprisingly well. I did shed a few tears today at work but other than that have been fine. I was really hoping the results would be different but I knew there was a good chance it wouldn't work. It's just a bump in the road. So now I'm just waiting for AF to come.

I called the RE and talked to the nurse. I don't want to do anything else until DH has his dr appt and we find out if there is anything going on with him that can be fixed. I had thought about taking BCP in Nov, in case we wanted to do IVF in Dec, we would be able to. His appt is Dec 1st. But then DH reminded me that he probably won't find anything out that day, he'll probably have to do some bloodwork, and won't find out the results for a while. And we won't have money to pay for it in our flex spend account until Jan. So I guess we're doing nothing for now. Sad

I also talked to the nurse about the possibility of doing Minimal stimulation IVF, if we do end up doing IVF. She said it would probably work good for us, since I had 5 eggs just on Clomid. With that, you take Clomid, and have 3-6 days of injectables, instead of 8-12 days 2-3 times a day. And 2-4 appts for monitoring instead of 4-6. It is also a lot cheaper.

So hopefully we will know something sometime in Dec, then if we're gonna do IVF I'd take BCP in Jan and do IVF in Feb, so maybe a November baby? I was so hoping for a really nice Christmas present, but I guess I'll have to wait a couple more months.

Oh yeah, my bbt thermometer got lost somehow in packing up the camping stuff when we were leaving on Sun. So I can't temp now. I guess it doesn't matter now anyway. Probably won't need it for a while.

So I haven't posted in a while but we are getting ready to start ivf! Just had ivf orientation Wedand it went well. The nurse explained everything in great detail. It was a lot and kind of overwhelming even though I already knew a lot about it. But I guess hearing about other ladies' experiences with it on here has helped so I knew what to expect.

I start Lupron 1/6. That is being shipped separately and will arrive tomorrow. They won't order my other meds until we pay for the cycle, which we will do next week. But they offered to just go ahead and order that one so I would have it. My baseline bloodwork and u/s is 1/12 and if all goes well with that, will be starting Gonal-F 1/14. I was pleased and suprised that I only have to do them once a day at night. They had me scheduled for a pre-lupron scan 1/4 to check for cysts, but that is not possible as we are leaving for PA on Sun. They decided that appt isn't crucial so it's ok. So glad I will have the Lupron to take with me. EPU is estimated for Jan 25 but she said it could be a day before/after. I asked about what they recommend for how many days to take off around EPU/ET. She said go home and take it easy both days but I can go back to work the next day, that the embies won't fall out. Hoping it works out for transfer Friday or Sat so will have the weekend to chill.

I am excited about starting, and also about our vacation! We need one! Christmas was so crazy this year and seemed to fly by!
