The Countdown Begins....

I finally took another HPT this morning and it was (obviously) negative. I knew it would be after my 0 beta last week (Zero doubled any number of times still just equals zero), but I thought I would just be sure. After confirming the negative, I called Nurse Happy and let her know. I asked for Dr. Bashful to prescribe Pro.vera and then asked to do another Fe.mara cycle with a trigger shot and asked for them to actually go ahead and do the RE referral (as you may recall, they held off this cycle because they wanted to see what the results would be. Turns out the results were a probable anovulatory cycle). They agreed to the Pro.vera and the Fe.mara cycle and will be doing the RE referral. However, apparently Dr. Bashful can't (read won't) do a trigger shot. She said that would have to come from the RE. Therefore, we'll be doing another Fe.mara cycle, but I don't know if I'll actually O (again). Maybe I will or maybe (just maybe) we'll get enormously lucky and get into the RE in time to get the trigger for O, but I'm not hugely optimistic.

Having said that, I start Pro.vera tonight! I'll be glad to let her bully my body into doing what it is supposed to do. I know it will be a painful AF (who of us is actually a novice to the Pro.vera bully?), but I'm hoping it will actually get things started well for us. The countdown to AF is now on!

As is the countdown to my RE appointment. I'm feeling a little excited!

I hope you get to the RE soon! But at least you sound like you're a take-chage sort of person - you really have to be in all this, don't you. :-/ Bestest of luck!

Sounds like things are working out. I so admire your persistence and as Tas said, your "take-charge" attitude! Sending good luck vibes your way!

I'll keep my fingers crossed that you don't need provera. That stuff is poison!! It made me CRAZY!

Provera makes me looney, just as a couple others have said! Upward and onward, though, right? Can't wait to see you!
