So for the very first time in this journey I am anxiously waiting for AF to arrive! Of course, when I need to to show, it doesn't. Figures. I should be on CD1 of our IVF cycle today...in fact my IVF plan says to start taking the Desogen tonight. I am really hoping that this doesn't push back our cycle even more....we already postponed starting for one month because of a vacation we have coming up and all of DH's travel. Guess I'll just have to wait and see what my IVF nurse says (I emailed her this morning).
UPDATE: My nurse said everything is fine...go ahead and start the BCPs as planned and just anticipate spotting during this cycle. So I guess we are officially starting our IVF cycle as of tonight!!
In other news, some friends of ours are doing their embryo transfer this morning. They go to the same clinic we do. I really pray for them and that this works despite the fact that she ignored the RE's orders to quit smoking. Selfishly I admit that I want it to work for them so I can feel better about what DH and are about to go through and I would love to have her support (because we all know how bitter IF patients get when our cycles don't work!).
Moving away from IVF, our big vacation is coming up in two weeks! We are heading to Oak Island, NC to spend an entire week on the beach with two other couple friends of ours. The last time we took a vacation that long it was for our honeymoon! It will also be a great way to not thinking about our cycle or getting pregnant or any of that. We have rented a huge 4 bedroom house right on the beach. We have absolutely NO plans which is the best part!
