Are You Still Alive?

Yes I am! I've just been super-duper busy!

First, I'll give you a cycle update (that's what you've all been waiting for anyway, I know!). So last Monday, AF had still not turned up. I was at 14 DPO then with a 12 day LP, so I called Nurse Happy and asked if Doctor Bashful would fax an order over to my work to have a beta done. They agreed and I soon received the fax and was on my way back to the lab to have blood drawn. Three and a half long hours later, the results were back. My beta was a whopping......0. Yup, nothing. Nada. Zip. A great big goose egg, just in time for Easter. I decided to wait a few days and see if AF would show, seeing as I obviously wasn't preggers. I'm now 8 days farther on with no sign of the witch and darn FF took my crosshairs away! Therefore, I'm guessing I didn't ovulate. I'll be phoning Nurse Happy again in the next couple of days to see what they want me to do. I'm hoping (crazy, I know) that they'll prescribe good ole' Provera to get the party started and then add Femara into the mix when the witch comes along. I'll push for an HCG trigger this time and we'll see what happens then.

I was rather upset over the outcome of this cycle, but I haven't even had time to mope about it! That big project at work I've been babbling about for months finally went live yesterday. That meant that last week and so far this one have been devoted to working out the kinks and getting things going. It's going to keep us extremely busy (which probably means my work-blog-surfing time is over sadly), so I'll have to make a concerted effort to stay on top of my blog and keep in touch with my blog buddies. I'm grateful though because it means that work goes by so much quicker and, honestly, I really like what I'm doing. But if any of you ever tell that to anyone, I'll totally deny it ;D

Apart from that, I'm in a killer class at school right now. Because I go to school online, my classes only last 5 weeks at a time. Therefore, I'm in a new class every 5 weeks (well, duh! Lol!). This class is worth more credits than any other I'll take (even the ones dedicated to my major) even though it is only a core class. And it is not one of my favorite subjects. And it is much more in depth than any other class I've taken. It's kicking my butt! Having said that, I'm still maintaining an A in the class, so I can't complain too much!

I do miss all my bloggy buddies though! I'm getting very excited as next Saturday (April 17th) I'll be meeting up with Alana and Kym!! I can't wait! It is going to be such a riot as they are two funny mamas! Can't wait to see you girls!

To ease my loss of getting to stop by as many blogs as I'd like, I hope you'll participate in my little experiment. Please post in my comments and tell me what you've been up to lately in 10 words or less! Can't wait to hear from you all!

You go, busy lady! I am eager to discuss your online courses with you, as I would like to pursue my masters degree and I think online coursework would best meet my needs.

Can't wait to meet you and Kym! Yay!

Mostly lying around and worrying! :)

I am so sorry that this wasn't the cycle. Hopefully they prescribe the Provera soon - man, I hate having to wait for them to just give it to me. I hope the Femara helps a ton this next cycle. Sending hugs to a busy, busy you!

Jennifer said...

Sorry this cycle wasn't a go. Hopefully they will get it all figured out soon!

As to what I've been doing....adoption paperwork. Lots of it!
