CD1: take 2

Okay, I thought yesterday would be CD1, but I was wrong. Just rusty spotting. Today looks the same. I've already made my antral follicle count appointment with Z Clinic for tomorrow... Might need to reschedule unless AF shows up. Pronto. I'm surprised it's not here already. Monday I had my typical PMS headache and moodiness. (No, I'm not PG, physically impossible!!!!)

Went to my local Resolve meeting yesterday. It was a little hard to be around so many people who are struggling with IF. Three of the six people there were embarking on donor egg cycles after 4 or 5 IVFs . One had lost her fetus at 21 weeks to a fluky infection. The other was contemplating living child-free. Egad. And then there was me, embarking on IVF #3, trying to stay hopeful. Gulp.

So, I need your positive thoughts - for this cycle, for AF to come in earnest now. 

Thank you all for your warm welcome back. I will be blogging and commenting much more now that I'm cycling.

For once I hope AF show up! She is so stubborn and only appears when we don't want her to.

I'll be thinking of you as you embark on your cycle. And sending you some AF vibes!

Best wishes

Bring it, AF! :) I'm rooting for you, Jem, and keeping this cycle in my thoughts...

Ouch, that Resolve meeting does sound tough :(.
Hoping AF shows up quick for you. How annoying that she always shows up when she's not wanted, yet takes her sweet time when she is!

You have all of my support -- what you are doing makes total sense to me, so don't let the others' decisions dim your hope.

Pee on a pregnancy test. Preferably an expensive one. This isn't about testing for pregnancy, but every time I think "I just check" my period arrives within an hour.

Good luck.
