Well, I got the "Not Pregnant" treatment this morning from an IC and a CBE digi. Why did I take two tests? I have no idea...I'm just crazy I guess I know that there are late implanters and late BFPs and all that, but I'm already accepting that this just didn't work. I knew it was a long shot anyway, so I'm okay.

The good news, though is that ever since I had my IUD removed in July 2007, I have had 30 day cycles, and I start spotting at 11DPO. It always worried me, and all my doctors dismissed my concerns. Finally my RE started giving my HCG boosters after O to prevent the spotting, and I think that is part of why the IVF worked.

Well, yesterday was 11DPO, and NO SPOTTING! I feel like that is a huge victory...maybe my body is working better now that before? It's a small thing, but I feel like I can move forward with a little good news!

That's great news. Thinking positive is difficult after a BFN, so kudos to you! Thanks for inspiring me to keep peppy about my cycle, too.

That's fantastic that there was no spotting!!!

It's nice when you're able to be "ok" with a bfn cycle, I have months like that too. I was really hoping that this would work out for you though.

I know its always hard to have a silver lining but i think its awesome that you are able to find it. Its kinda like one small step in the right direction. Hopefully its a sign of good things to come.
