I tested this morning…
I know, I know. It’s still early.
But, I’m feeling defeated.
I only used an internet cheapie today. I’m going to buy a pack of FRERs tonight and test again tomorrow (as planned) on 12DPIUI.
It’s hard to be hopeful. The last few days of the 2WW are always the hardest for me.
I was feel great up until Sunday – 9DPIUI. I usually am a nighthawk, but I went to bed before my husband on Sunday night. The progesterone side effects kicked in – exhaustion, sore nips, bloated and the ever-so-slight cramping.
I think the worst part about this potentially negative cycle is that we don’t have a plan for next cycle. I was hoping deep down that we wouldn’t need a plan.
Last week, we got our consult date for the other clinic we are interested in. We are strongly considering switching due to their more advanced techniques and their focus on unexplained cases.
Our skype interview is July 8th.
We have an extensive medical questionnaire to fill out, then I have to contact our current clinic to send copies of our records to the new clinic, and contact my family doctor for a referral (helps with medical coverage since this clinic is outside of our province).
I have been putting it off, as I wanted to see what the outcome of this cycle would be.
Since we still have a cycle before our consult, our options are:
- IUI #4 +
- IUI #4 + injectibles
- Take a break and wait for IVF consult with new clinic
My husband has left the decision in my hands. He said he will support me either way. He would like to move forward, but knows that the drugs are hard on me.
Being in this situation reminds me of a “choose your own adventure” book, except I can’t flip ahead to see what the ending will be.
Today, I’m leaning towards a break, but who knows what tomorrow will bring?
Hopefully a BFP.
