I'll spare you the suspense... I'm not miraculously pregnant... but in my last post I mentioned how I finally had a pill approved by my Czech doc, and I was waiting for my period to start... Well, I'm still waiting...
Actually, weirdly, I had all those classic early-pregnancy symptoms I've read about:
- Strange mid-cycle spotting CHECK (only it wasn't bright pink, more brownish pink)
- 2 Days of nipples on fire CHECK (definitely only nipples)
- Tiredness CHECK
- Weird twinges and cramps CHECK
- Cervix high, tight and closed CHECK
- 3 Days late for period CHECK
But according to an old WONDFO I found in the dark recesses of my cute "TTC bag" of 2010 I am not pregnant.
So what gives?
I am not testing again. But I have an appointment to meet my new OB on Wednesday and I will wait to see what he says.
At this point I am just praying that it's not a cyst or a fibroid or something else that will cause us to have to reschedule our Czech cycle.
I have never had a cyst (that I was aware of) and I've read enough IF blogs to know they're pretty common and they often cause IVF cycles to be cancelled or delayed. So I guess it's my turn... We'll see.
The thing that pisses me off about this is that I have just sort of made peace with the whole genetic link thing. I was finally excited and hopeful about our DE IVF prospects. We were riding high on the planning and preparation for our trip to Prague - although admittedly more than just a little stressed about the logistics of it all.
