I decided to POAS today...and got a BFN. So now I am just waiting for AF to arrive. Part of me is trying to be hopeful that maybe I just tested too soon, since I haven't had any spotting at all. I have been cramping for the past few days though, so I really don't want to get my hopes up too much. If I still haven't seen AF by Monday, I will test again.

I sent an e-mail to the RE's office to see what they want to do this cycle. Every part of my plan hinges on getting the chrosome test results back...and those will come any day now. My tentative plan is to do another cycle on Clomid. I am NOT going to temp this month and I am going to try an OPK instead of my CBEFM. I also ordered some Preseed...we usually don't really need it, but sometimes DH wishes that we could use lube, so I figure it can't hurt.

If the test results show that I have the chromosome abnormality, I guess we will be going in to talk to the RE about IVF. I honestly don't know if DH and I will be financially able to go down that road. I started looking into 'medical tourism' - meaning we would go to another country for IVF, but that creates a whole other list of questions.

So, for the meanwhile, we are just holding tight and hoping for the best.


  1. I'm so sorry about the BFN. I'm still hoping that the hag stays away. I hope you hear good news from the test results, soon.


  2. I'm hoping for the best with you!!! ((((HUGS))))

  3. Sending you a hug from ICLW *hug* Sending you lots of luck for your test results, and I hope they come soon! Try to take some time for yourself this weekend- do for you while you wait.

    Happy ICLW!

  4. Hope the test comes back ok. Medical tourism is interesting - we've had positive experiences thus far.


  5. What day are you on? I had a negative on cd31 and then got my BFP today on cd37. I hope you get yours!

  6. Hoping you get a happy surprise and that evil hag AF stays away.

    I also hope the chromosome test results are good.


  7. Negative HPTs are the worst! I hope the chromosome test brings good news.

  8. This cycle isn't over yet!! Hoping it was a BFN because it's too early! Also sending good vibes that the chromosome testing brings great results. I think your plan sounds good though, another Clomid cycle and then see how you go!
    Take care :)

  9. Here's hoping you get what you want this cycle! Maybe it was too early to test!

    If not, hopefully your next cycle is it!

  10. Hope that BFN was a result of early testing! Keeping my fingers crossed that a BFP will soon follow!!
