On the brighter side of things...

...I'll be able to enjoy massive quantities of rum on vacation next week.

In other words, negative.
I won't be pregnant before our 7th anniversary.
I won't be pregnant before I'm 37.

This next cycle will even be completely up in the air. If this next cycle follows my previous history, AF will show up on day 2 or 3 of vacation. (Oh joy! On our anniversary! What a treat!) The RE usually sees me on day 3, 4, or 5 to prescribe that cycle. I won't be able to get in to see her before CD6 or 7. We discussed injectables last cycle and ordered them. Thousands of dollars of Follistim are sitting in my fridge. I was really hoping to be able to donate it to someone who isn't as fortunate as me with drug coverage, but now they'll be mine. The question is whether I'll be using them this cycle or next. If we're not back for me to see the doctor in time this cycle (she won't start a new course of action without a sonogram and blood test to reconfirm no pregnancy - ya know, because AF isn't enough) we'll just go natural and skip IUI this month. At least that's what I'm thinking now. I could take the Follistim pen with me and try to convince the doctor to just let me start, but I don't really want to deal with the hassle of flying with needles and liquids.

Now, pass me a bottle of Cruzan.

Sorry about that, try to take your day or two to be down, but get back up and ready to go again!

Enjoy the break.
