Thanks, Stef! HI! Not much to report so I'm just laying low.

Cycle 20; Cycle Day 25- 10dpo

VERY sore bbs, which have been there since before O time.
I am just waiting for the pre-AF headache that always comes anytime now... I was so positive up until about today- nothing seems different- nothing out of the ordinary- nothing to make me think I could be pregnant. Ugh!

Thanks, ladies.

I think my headache tried to come on tonight and I'm so cranky, so it's probably pre-pre PMS starting, who knows.

Nothing much to report. DH got some info on interest rates through the bank if we decide to finance IVF through them, and I have to make my calls sometime this week. He also got his bloodwork done on Saturday, so I am hoping we are all ready to go- just gotta make the final details! We're aren't a "yes" yet, but it's good to know that he's on board with getting the testing bank/info done.

Jackie I really hope that you won't need to do IVF. I'm still keeping my fingers crossed that this is your cycle!

Thank you, Kimberley. I'm trying to stay optimistic. Still no harsh headache, but it's early. Today is 11dpo and still nothing going on. No cramps or anything, just sore boobs! Nothing feels different.

Now the question is to test or not to test tomorrow if I don't get my pre-AF headache by the end of the day....

And should I temp next cycle? Hmmm, decisions decisions.

First, I have to apologize for being so late!! I must have really been slacking, sorry!!!
You and your DH do have such a great relationship! I dont know how you guys stay so patient with one another, I want to kill DH sometimes when he doesnt agree with me on certain things. God truly brought you guys together for many reasons.
It sounds like the orientation went really well and both of you got a LOT out of it, which is great. I know whatever you guys decide will be the best decision for you. Of course, we are ALL hoping you get your BFP before Christmas and there will be no need for the IVF. GL girl and KUP!

Thanks so much Candace and Stef.

Candace- we are one of those strange couples. We NEVER fight. When I have PMS and get grouchy (like today), he knows when to just kiss me on the forehead and steer clear of me for the night. lol

I hate to disappoint, but the pre-AF headache is definitely here. I'm 100% sure of it, just like the last 19 cycles. Hopefully if the witch shows on Friday when she's due, I will be sans witch for Christmas. It sucks moving on to cycle 21....and today is the 2 year "anniversary" of the first day of the first cycle that we started trying. It truly stinks.

*sniffle*

Thanks for the hugs...

12dpo today and hoping the witch is on time on Friday... I would like to get the painful part of AF and my crappy endo over with over the weekend rather than this week-- it's our busiest week at work for the year.

Today's fun: headaches, bloat, fatigue, and cramps.

Im sorry you feel AF is coming Jackie. I hope you get a nice surprise, but I trust you know your body and know shes coming. Im sorry I know you wanted to not have to deal with the IVF decision, and just gets a BFP this cycle. Good Luck with everything though, I hope you make the decision that is best for you guys. Im trying to decide if i should temp next cycle too. I want to just rest and relax, but i want to know what is going on with my body, too. So i dont know.

Thanks, Ash. It was actually a TON easier this cycle to not temp than I thought it would be! With the clearly positive OPKs, it helped. I am not sure what to do this next cycle. I am thinking of not temping, but I'm itching to temp. It's like I feel like I don't know how high my post-O temps got this cycle and I can't help but wonder!

As for me, eh, I'm hanging in there. I will be honest though. I bawled like a baby last night. I cried myself to sleep. Jon just held me. It was a sad sad moment (or hour). I'm frustrated with my body, I'm sad for us and our future "family" plans, and I'm scared about what is coming up (or not coming up). Jon and I WILL have to make a decision after my appointment next week, and I am still not ready. I have to be though, so that it's all started before all of the tests I've had done expire (6 months) and before the endo pain gets too tough again.

I'm sorry Jackie. I was really hoping you'd get your miracle and wouldn't be faced with such a hard decision of whether or not to do the IVF. Only you and Jon can decide what's best for the both of you and i'll be praying you make the best decision for your family. I can't imagine being faced with such circumstances and i'm very glad you have such a wonderful husband to lean on. HUGS!!
