100th post

Wish I had more exciting news for my 100th post, but I don't. Test this morning was negative. This morning was pretty bad. I was convinced that there is no hope for a pregnancy this cycle. But thanks to the encouraging comments left after my post on The Stirrup Queens' Virtual Lushary, I'm feeling a little hope again. With any luck it won't be completely dashed in the morning when I take another test. I would definitely expect a positive by 13dpiui. I think if it is negative tomorrow I can just wait for AF to arrive on Friday. Right now I'm trying to figure out how I can do another IUI right away. Hubby won't be home until the 19th and I would need to go for my cd3 baselines Sunday, or possibly Monday. I can wake my daughter up and bring her with me but I'm not sure they will let me. If I don't get a positive test by Wednesday I will call the clinic and check on that. If I can start a new cycle, the next IUI would probably be March 28, while my mother-in-law is visiting. Hopefully that won't be awkward!

Reasons I'm expecting another negative tomorrow: I'm kind of crampy and nauseous tonight, and this happened around the same time last cycle, which obviously failed. I'm breaking out just like last cycle. I'm crabby and emotional, typically a sign Af is coming.

Reasons I'm still hopeful for a positive: Nausea could be a sign of pregnancy right? Who knows what the cramps can be blamed on. Breaking out is caused by stress, not just AF coming, and it could even be caused by pregnancy hormones. And finally, being crabby and emotional is really nothing new for me, so aside from the cramps everything could just as easily be blamed on pregnancy as AF.

Guess we'll see what happens tomorrow!

Hope has a tricky way of sneaking in and out of your house when you least expect her...

I'm sorry that it was still negative today, PCOS Mama. I hope for better news tomorrow.
