This show is back on the road! AF arrived last night ~ what a relief! I am a born worrier (thanks, mom) so I was very worried that I would have a marathon cycle and have to delay this IVF process even more. Well, all my worrying was for nothing! It's back ~ yahoo (I never thought I'd be so excited to see my period)!

So, this morning I put in a call to the clinic (it's a satellite clinic so nobody is there taking calls today) and will wait for the nurse coordinator to call me tomorrow and tell me when I start taking the estradial tablets. Apparently, this puppies are inserted and they are a really funky blue colour. I've been warned that I'll be seeing some colour coming from the Nether Region ~ oh, joy!!

Still Waiting .... Not so patiently though!

Why is it that when you don't want AF to show, it shows, and when you want it show, it doesn't? I don't know how much more patient I can be! I was expecting AF last weekend, but it still hasn't arrived. I guess all of those drugs, hormones and god knows what else I was putting into my body are causing things to go wacky this cycle.

I'm hoping AF will come this weekend so we can get this show on the road. My estrogen tablets are sitting on the shelf in the pantry staring at me every morning when I go in there. I hope I will be able to use them soon!

The Waiting Continues

It's been awhile since our last post. There is not very much to update. Since the last post, we found out 15 eggs were frozen, all of them are 5 day blasts. Unfortunately, I got my period too soon so the doctor decided it would be best to wait another month before we do the transfer.

I am guessing my next cycle will start mid April so transfer could happen at the end of this month. I don't know the specifics of my protocol yet but it looks like I'll be on estrogen pills to thicken my lining and PIO injections.

So, we wait some more. Last night Paul and I were out for dinner at a Chinese restaurant. I usually don't think too much of the fortunes we get inside our fortune cookies. However, last night, I had to keep the fortune Paul got ......... time and patience are called for, many surprises await you.
