Where IS that hag?

So, the acupuncturist felt the same 'maybe' pulse on Wednesday. I decided that as much as I didn't want to see a BFN again, the not knowing was harder. If I'm not pregnant, I just want to spend my energy on getting emotionally and mentally geared up for the IVF. So, I took a test, (Accuclear - which gave me the best faint pink line when my beta was only 6 with the last pregnancy) and it was, of course, BFN. Fine, I'm over that part I think. Except for the fact that I was getting excited about the possibility of NOT needing to do the IVF. But, whatever, I'm gearing up for a successful, predictable cycle.

If AF would just freaking show up already!!!

I'm 15dpo today and my 'usual' LP (luteal phase - 2nd half of my cycle) is 14 days, but I've had 15-16 day LPs, usually on the clomid. I tested one more time this morning, just to be sure, and still BFN, so I know the long LP isn't for the right reason. I'm not disparaging it though too much, I know there are lots of women who would love to have a too-long LP. But the thing is, I can't start my IVF until AF gets here. We're leaving for camping tomorrow and if AF shows tomorrow, I'll have to drive 2 hours to get back to the clinic for cd2 monitoring (ultrasound & bloodwork). It's not the worst thing, but still, it's an interruption to the camping weekend and it would be nice if my stupid body would cooperate once in a while.

Anyone hosting the old hag who wants to send her my way ASAP? I'd be really grateful. Man, that's just weird, asking for a visit from the Red-Headed Witch.

The wait for the hag to begin your cycle is the absolute pits. Hopefully things will get going so you don't have to interrupt your camping plans.

Darn it. Hope you can make it through your camping trip, but I know how anxious you must be to get started with your IVF cycle. Will be hoping that both turn out for you.

The watched pot never boils. Don't you hate tapping your foot for AF to hurry up when she is taking her sweet time! Hope she shows up soon!
