Rookie mistake! I bought a FRER last night while I was at the store because I’m 12 dpo and my boobs are super sore (unusual for me). Of course it was negative this morning. AF should be here on the 9th, but it’s not looking too good for me this month.

tulipdazey :  Nothing here.. I’m 11dpo and my boobs are killing me but BFN last night so I’m sure I’m out. AF will be here on Thursday. I might actually get to POAS again Nov 30, so get to hang out here a bit longer.

I decided to book a private MRI instead of waiting 9 months, so hopefully I’ll have that sometime this week and get some clarity. I also decided this month I will skip tracking completely. The last two months I was a mess in the 2WW so we’ll just BD EOD after AF ends and see what happens.

tulipdazey :  I’m currentl guzzling gatorade.  I heard that too.  I didn’t know about the salt though.  I’ll go home and make popcorn after work.  I love salty things so that one shouldn’t be too hard for me.

cbn8787 :  sorry for the BFN. New symptoms always throw me for a loop!

Dfitzy :  glad they’re being proactive, hope you’re able to avoid OHSS. If I start IVF next month, that’s the biggest thing I’m afraid of since I won’t do any suppression beforehand and I have polycystic ovaries. OHSS is scary stuff on top of having to wait for a frozen transfer.

tulipdazey :  At least you can start stimming as a silver lining! Sorry about AF.

AFM: 1 more day of letrozole and then an ultrasound on Thursday. I’m feeling deeply pessimistic about this cycle this month, but we’ll see.

tulipdazey :  I’m sure it will be fine! Don’t freak out too much. πŸ™‚ 

I’m not sure why I feel pessimistic! I think I’m mostly just having a grumpy day. I think as we start seriously talking about IVF, I’m feeling less and less confident that I’ll be able to get pregnant without it.

Thank you! I haven’t tested today because I started spotting and I’m like, period hormonal. Like weeping over how good Leslie Knope is and why can’t there be more politicians like her hormonal. So I figure I’m probably out….will test tomorrow though just to be sure.

heartandstars :  fingers crossed for you!

 

Little update, went to RE this morning for monitoring, we’re getting close.  I had 23 follicles, largest was measuring at a 15, my lining is at a 9.  Depending on bloodwork I go in for monitoring tomorrow or Saturday the nurse will call once my blood results are in.  Retrevial will most likely be Monday, Sunday and Tuesday are possiblities too.  But most likely Monday.

heartandstars :  I love that your hormonal weeping is over Leslie Knope.

Dfitzy :  That’s so many follicles! Are most of them near that 15 or are there a lot of littles?

tulipdazey :  FX everything looks good tomorrow!

AFM: monitoring appt this morning. I have 2 follicles at 15 and one at 12 for this IUI. I had a bunch of others between 8 and 10 but the tech thought they wouldn’t grow anymore with those other leads. My lining was 4.7 so I’m starting estrogen tonight. I have a monitoring appt again tomorrow to check on the follicles and lining. I’m actually really excited to do an u/s again tomorrow to see day to day progress.
