waiting to: AF
Plan this cycle: Acupuncture/Nutrition/Exercise to strengthen and balance my system
Next appointment: 18 January, might cancel
Testing when: not unless AF is missing
Favorite Book: ah, just one? I'm reading The Letters of EB White right now, and it's been such a delight. I'm nearing the end and I have this feeling of sadness, like when a good friend leaves after a nice visit.
CD: 31 (late and 2 BFN's)
waiting to: waiting for AF
Plan this cycle: waiting

Testing when: BFN on 12/31 & 1/1

~Tracey (40), mom to Reagan(born 08/07/11)
3 failed IVFs, 2 snowbabies
Surprise BFP in 12/10 after acupuncture & herbs!!
Actively ttc #2 with acupuncture & herbs
waiting to: technically test again, but i don't feel pregnant so assume cycle is a bust and so really waiting for AF to start
Plan this cycle: Only thing left to do is take the progesterone for next 8 days...i did my blood draw this AM so they could check my natural progesterone level
Next appointment: None scheduled currently...once AF starts will call b/c I think they want to do a CD2-3 u/s this next cycle.
Testing when: POAS degenerate that I am, I tested this morning at DPO8 (maybe, we're not precisely sure when I O'd) and it couldn't be more negative. I'll give it a couple of days, and keep testing every 2 days until AF shows. I feel like sulking and not testing at all - just wait for AF - but i'm fearful because if by some miracle i am pregnant I need to identify as quickly as possible b/c they won't start me on the Lovenox until i've confirmed via 2 blood draws with proper doubling.
Favorite Book: Waaaaay too hard to pick one...I love anything Neil Gaiman though
