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
