May cyclers?

I thought I would be in April but I went for b/w yesterday and still no o (day 22) . This is following a failed IVF cycle so I guess I am not regular yet. I have to go back on the 14th for more b/w and hopefully I will start lupron then. This will be a medicated FET for me. I have some great quality embies waiting for me so I am feeling very positive. Looks like the transfer will be some where around May 16th. All my info is in my siggy.....but I have been around so long your all probably board with my story....LOL!

I am looking forward to getting to know my May cycle buddies:smileyhappy:

It is overwhelming at times....we, as the women, have so much we have to manage and organize and be responsible for. Sometimes I get annoyed that DH really has nothing to do but wait. And therefore he doesn't have all of the anxiety associated with those responsibilities. Not to mention that they don't have to do anything painful...injections, being poked and proded, feeling sick, etc.

Last week when we were talking about all of my upcoming appts., I was telling him what times they are and when (of course I make all of the appts) and for a few I need his help with DD. His reply was to ask how much was it going to interfere with his work? I totally lost it! The one thing he has to do is rearrange his schedule just slightly and he makes a big deal out of it. He apologized later, but jeez!

I set my alarm on my phone for all of my med times...that helps because I have almost forgotten a couple of times. It's a lot, but hopefully will be well worth it in the end!

I get very forgetful too. Yesterday I showed up for my u/s a day early! LOl. the funny thing is I had the 5th written down and still showed up on the 4th......Thankfully they still took me because I hate pulling DD out of bed so early in the morning.

I understand how you feel. After so many disappointment's its hard to be positive all the time. Don't beat yourself up. As far as hoe I am managing the "expectations" part, I guess I am trying not to think about it too much. I am just telling myself that I know for a fact it WILL work and I WILL be pregnant. Anytime a negative thought enters my head I push it away and just tell myself everything will work out. Sounds crazy but it's totally helping my stress level.

I'm sorry one didn't make it :(. But try to stay positive! It really does only take one for a healthy, happy baby. Good luck on the wait...I do think it's the worst part of the whole thing. Take care!
