Sorry for the absence of posts for the last few days. We went out of town friday morning to celebrate my grandmother’s 90th. However, before we got there we found out that her sister (my great aunt) died so we went straight to the funeral and then had a weekend of half birthday stuff for my grandmother and half funeral stuff. It was weird.
I am still in the 2ww, well sorta. I thought I might have had some small symptoms, but they all went away within a day or so of whenever they came. I think they were from the progesterone or my ibs. Today I am 12dpo, though the day is almost over. I’m pretty convinced that today might be cd1 though. I started spotting this morning and it’s been present all day when I wipe. It never goes to my pad. However, I have been having weird periods the last four or five periods where they are just like that. Very light and barely do much on my pad. However again, my progesterone suppositories were stinging when I put them in the last few nights so maybe I am irritated. It’s probably af though. Though my mother said that she was convinced she had her period when she found out she was pregnant with me. I’m still pretty sure it’s over though. I’m sad, but I haven’t had much of a chance to really cry. I have been surrounded by family. Maybe that’s a good thing.
I’m going to call my RE’s tomorrow and get the dates for their Jan IVF cycles. I’m nervous with the timing. My in-laws and their extended family always have a thing in the second week of jan that I’m trying not to miss and I’m also going somewhere for work at the end of feb. So scheduling is making me nervous. Two questions for you guys who have been through ivf – 1) I have always had long cycles. They are always really careful with me and give me low doses and don’t want too many things to grow which is why I have long cycles. However, with ivf I figure they want lots to grow and maybe it won’t make my cycles really long. Have you guys had extended ivf cycles longer than usual? Also, I will be flying for my work thing. Is flying a couple of weeks after an ivf bad? I will probably be writing out an entry about my fears of ivf soon, maybe getting them out and hearing your experiences will make me feel better.
I hope all of your weekends and cycles are doing better than mine. I missed you guys. I also really appreciate all of my twitter girls. I managed to pick up a wifi signal at my grandmother’s this morning and I got a lot of really encouraging and supportive tweets. So, thank you so much for that. It carried me through my drive home.
