Wow. I've been avoiding this thread, and this section of the boards really, since a particularly Earth-shattering failed cycle last cycle. But, you women have been busy! Congrats on all these upcoming Feb/March babes! So exciting! And, of course, many hugs and good wishes to those of you dealing with the sadness and frustration of bfns. I can totally sympathize.
This cycle has been a gong show already, and we haven't even done the IUI yet! I got +opks over the weekend, but couldn't track down the dr. When we finally did reach her, we headed over to the clinic and it turns out that OUR SPERM WASN'T THERE!!! Gah. So, no IUI, needless to say. A few angry exchanges with the sperm bank though! In desperation, I continued peeing on sticks, and just this afternoon got *another* positive. My temps didn't go up after the first spike, so I wasn't surprised to get another today, but still. So, the gong show continues because the nurse at the hospital who is supposed to page our dr is absent and a very, very cranky nurse took the message instead. That was more than three hours ago and we still haven't heard from our dr, so I seriously doubt she has actually been paged. Grrr! Anyway, a positive opk around 5pm today would mean that tomorrow morning and then again tomorrow night or Wed morning would be good timing right? I'm totally questioning everything after last month's failure. The past few days have been a complete rollercoaster. I thought we were going to have to forfeit the cycle, which was all kinds of complicated beyond being a disappointment as we have two cycles worth of sperm up here, but this cycle and August are the only cycles we can use that sperm due to our dr's vacation schedule and my own return to school in another province in September. Anyway. You are all familiar with the ups and downs of this insanity, I know. Cross your fingers that we'll get to do the IUI tomorrow and that we'll wind up with a sticky little babe?
We're looking into McGill's natural cycle IVF too, if this doesn't work, so maybe I'll be joining you "for real" in the future. I hope it doesn't turn out that way, just because I want this babe to make an appearance *now* (aka, via a bfp this cycle!). It's time. It's time for all of us.
Booja's mom - Tomorrow is the 27th!! Are you excited? Scared? Probably both, hey?
