Hi Barb

happy belated Bday!!! my birthday was April 20th so we are close! I did turn 42.

My IUI was the 27th so I'm planning to test May 13th. (I'm out of town for business M-W that week, DH and I want to test together.) That is assuming AF doesn't arrive first. {~positive thinking~}

When are you going to test?

Same day! I have the blood test scheduled at the RE for May 13. I'm scared...I think I would rather wait and see if I get AF.......I want to be positive butI want to be a realist also and not set myself up for disappointment......!

Good luck to both of us!

Hi

maybe 13 will be our lucky number!

I usually don't make it to the blood test part, except for one cycle where AF was late but appeared just hours after the b/t was drawn.

One good thing about doing all the fertility meds is that my cycles have gotten a little more regular. AF appears almost 2 weeks to the day after HCG shot.

This is my 6th month of trying under a Dr's care..I try to stay positive and think that potentially I am pg. Last month was really difficult because I was on a business trip when I starting getting AF cramps so I knew the meds and IUI didn't work. I just wanted to be home with DH and my two kitties...

If a particular cycle doesn't work, at least it means cd1 brings with it a new chance, a new possibility to get pg. So I hope you're able to stay positive during this 2ww.

God bless and let's keep each other updated

Hi Barb

I just read that you're having a garage sale this weekend. Wow, we have lots in common!I'm having one in 3 weeks! It will be my first so if you've done it before and have some suggestions/lessons learned, please pass it on.

Good luck, I'll wish good weather for you and lots of shoppers!

JnAnB

ps: so you know if it's true that shoppers show up before the sale is supposed to start?

Hi jnanb!

We had an pretty good garage sale....we usually have one every few months.....we never advertise...don't have to..! We just have very big signs we put everywhere...outside our neighborhood, on a busy intersection! And yes, you will do most of your business before 11-12. The busiest shoppers come as early as 7! Although you have to watch for the professional ones, they buy your stuff and then take it to the flea market to sell that very day..!

Good luck!

JnAnB and Barb,

Only 8 days to go before your test date, that is so exciting!

I am sending you truckloads of baby dust and I really hope this is the cycle for you both!!

Best wishes,

Lisa
