Weekend visitor

No, not anyone fun or interesting, just ole AF. She arrived without surprise this morning. Why without surprise? Well, first off this marks our 21st cycle of TTC. Nothing is a surprise after this long. Football analogy: If the Chicago Bears pass the ball off to Matt Forte for 20 consecutive times for him to run down the field, then news flash to this week's opposing defense-they'll give it to him for another time to make it 21 in a row. No surprise. Secondly, we did actually try (as always) to have a hail mary BFP. Obviously did not work, as most hail mary football attempts don't work either. In fact, they usually end up in an interception. And finally, AF arrived today because it's Saturday and it would've been too easy to arrive on a week day when I actually could've spoken to a nurse, been excited, and worked on my calendar. Now, I'll wait until Monday. Still no flippin' word on the test results. I'm done with being patient. Never was a strength of mine anyway. 5 weeks and 3 freakin' days...

Looked at a lot of flights, but not booking anything until results are back. Of course Thanksgiving flights are outrageous. I could wait until the next week when they are much cheaper, but I'm over waiting. Really, really over waiting. And, we don't have to burn more vacation time if we go out over Thanksgiving. Stay tuned...

Good luck booking the flights!

This is month 39 (or so) for us and I know we will still give it a shot. One of these months we will learn.

I'm sorry the witch found you again, but am glad you can now move forward and get going on your transfer!! All my best. (:

Hey there ... I just found your blog, though I've seen your comment on many blogs we read in common. I'm starting with CCRM, my 1 day workup is this coming Monday! (Just days after "No Regrets")

Anyhow, the wait IS long! I was just told my CGH results from my second SIRM cycle are in ... and I have to wait til Tuesday to get em! Why are they making me wait when they have them?
