1 Week Down

Blood test in 1 week. K's feeling a little different this time. I'm not getting my hopes up because these could all be symptoms from the progesterone. The first week has gone by pretty fast and with everything we have going on I'm thinking week 2 will go by just as fast.

Keep your fingers crossed everyone. This has been a rough one emotionally. It's all starting to take it's toll. But there anything about this that doesn't take it's toll on us??? So, believe me I do realize how stupid that sounded. :-) Oh, well. I just keep moving on. It will work out the way it is meant to in the end. You do everything you can and everything you have the means to do and hope for the best.

That is my deep moment for the day.... Talk to you all again soon. Have a great weekend.

This is Day 1 of your TWW.

Insems went well Saturday and Sunday. Our Donor had low numbers Saturday. Only 8 million and only 13 million on Sunday. Not great, but I guess not the worst.

Our RE has a new plan if this one doesn't take. We'll be doing a Day 1 or Day 2 baseline u/s and starting meds on Day 2. He wants us to do a combination of clomid & injectibles. I love that our RE is always trying something different. Always a bit more aggressive. But like we told the nurse...This one is going to take so we won't need it. :-)

The blood test is September 4th so I'm hoping for good news for the holiday weekend. K's birthday is Wednesday (the 26th) this would be the best present.

Keep your fingers crossed everyone. Talk to you all soon.

This will be the cycle...

It's very unlike me to not post something between Day 3 and Insem, but things have been crazy.

Here is our TTC update...

K has 1 leading follicle right now with 1 maybe catching up in time. Maybe not. This cycle she had no activity on her left and the usual 1-2 good on the right. We are going forward with 2 insems this cycle. We figure the expense is worth it since we have limited tries left. We insem tomorrow and Sunday with the PG test on Sept 4th.

We're, of course, really hoping this is the cycle we see that BFP. In the end I know we will be glad that we exhausted all options and we did everything we could. My fear is still we end up with no baby but still broke and probably a little bitter. :( But again I try to live with no regrets. I would have regretted not trying everything I did when it came to me. I'm glad I stopped when I did instead of being more disappointment. I'm glad we're putting everything into K since she really has been our best shot at having a baby. If it doesn't happen we'll be upset but hopefully it won't be something we can't get past.

Ok, now that I have that out of my system...Back to only positive thoughts!! 1 perfect follicle with 2 insems with Millions of sperm. 1 will find it's way and make some magic happen! This will happen and we'll see a BFP!

I have to catch up with everyone. I've been a bit out of touch but I hope everyone is doing well out there.

Day 3

Day 3 U/S went well. They are upper her dose of Bravelle from 150mg to 225mg. That stuff is so expensive so it better do the trick!! We go back Tuesday for another U/S to see how things are coming along.

That's all I have for TTC news. On the NON-TTC front we finished painting the guest room and it came out great. It is very different. Wall - pale honey. Ceiling & Doors - green & the Trim - dark brown. All three colors really came together. This room as been tour up since we had that water main break and had the draintile put in months ago. It feels great to finally have things put back together. This is the time of year we get a ton of company.

That's about it here. Talk to you all again soon.

The break is finally over...

K's AF has finally arrived. Thursday morning we're back in for a Day 3 U/S to start the process all over again. It's been a nice break, but it's back to work. We really do only have 3-4 tries left before we are on another very long break again. K got the letter from the Union about her insurance ending. She has some account with the union that she can pull some money from to keep the insurance going for a few more months then when that money is gone she will be put on my insurance and as we all know from when I was going through TTC my insurance covers NOTHING.

That's about it with us.
