So, I Was Off by a Month!

The endocrinologist wants to wait until my next cycle to start the next IVF cycle....meaning my calculations in the prior post were off by a whole month!  The transfer will occur on May 3rd and the due date will be January 19, 2012...two days after my youngest Jocelyn's birthday! 

I wonder if they are going to want to transfer more than one embryo this time, or if they are going to transfer two!?!  What do you think???  I want to ask, but something is keeping me from asking that particular question, so I haven't and I probably won't. 

Well, I hope you are having an amazingly beautiful day!

The Worst is Over and a New Cycle Begins....

I started my period which is no fun at all, obviously.  In fact, on top of the whole thing, I have had flu like symptoms and even missed half a day of work.  The pain was miserable and I have been living on 800 mgs of Ibuprofen every 4 hours, per the nurse's instructions.  I haven't been able to work out this week and of course only twice last week.  I feel like a lump of crap.  I'm going today, I don't care how I feel. 

Things are not bad, I'm glad that part is over with, so now we can move on!  I have started taking the birth control pills and will be receiving a new calendar soon.  I tried my hand at calculating the date of the transfer and the due date, although I really don't know what I am doing.  The transfer date I got was April 5th, with a due date of Dec. 22nd.  We will find out soon enough how close or far I am from the actual dates! 

As always, I hope your day is beautiful and that you are doing well.

It's a No-Go on the Embryo.

All laughter aside, I am quite devastated.  I knew with the intial Beta numbers that the chances were slim to none, but I still held hope.  Now I am to stop taking all meds and wait for aunt flo to show up.  We will try another cycle in a few weeks when I start my period.  I will keep you informed.

The Test Was a Low Positive...Positive Energy and Prayer's Appreciated! :)

I am sorry that I didn't update this yesterday.  I was super busy.

The test came back positive.  The Beta numbers are very low and I will be getting another test done on Monday to make sure that they have gone up.  I had a dream last night that they were in the 200's for my next test, which is really good.  Let's keep those good thoughts and prayers coming please!

The Waiting Game

So I guess you notice that I have been quiet these past few days.  I really have been a nervous wreck...and excited too. 

Today I went in for my blood draw to check if I am in fact pregnant or not, and now...I'm waiting. 

That is all.
