Okay gang- so the beta was a bfn... no surprises here but there was a little part of me that was hoping it was going to be good news. I just can't believe that I can't get pregnant. Every now and again it hits me that something that my body is supposed to do, can't or won't. I have fertility issues!!! So, I'm sad... but I am focusing on our trip and can really hit the gym hard so I look somewhat decent in a bathing suit. (If it had been a bfp, I would of had an excuse for having a little pudge in my bikini! LOL!!!)
So, in an attempt to keep my spirits up, here are my positives for it being a BFN- no more suppositories!, no more hormones for a while, I can work out really hard at the gym (run, bike, lift weights), I can drink Lava Flow's and Mai Tai's in Maui, I can parasail in Maui, I don't have to worry about morning sickness.
The RE said for the next protocol they will double the amount of Menopur so maybe that will help. DH and I are probably going to take a few months off and not do another protocol until after the new year. Emotionally, I need some time off and financially we need to get our credit card balance down before we can move on.
Does anyone know if there are any cons to not doing protocols back to back? Would waiting make our chance even more slim? I'll be 37 in October and part of me feels like if we wait, my chances will decrease even more due to my age and then another part of me feels like "I'm already infertile so what does age matter?"
