TTC after 35

Update (BFN)

So, AF arrived in no uncertain terms at 6 am (I even took a hpt just to be sure it wasn't spotting).  I'm very disappointed of course and I would be more upset, but the upside is that my RE thinks we should go right ahead with another femara/IUI cycle, and this time around I can fly DH in (the timing works perfectly for the one weekend he can travel to be with me this fall). At least I get to feel proactive and we get to do a "live" IUI, or so we hope (fingers crossed that I respond as well again to the femara as I did this last time around).

I'm glad I wasn't temping.  It was better to just wake up and have AF already arriving than wait for her after a temperature drop.  And I'm glad I haven't been frantically testing since I last did at 10dpo.  It was actually nice to keep feeling like "well, maybe" instead of hoping the hpt was wrong.  I hope I remember this for the next 2ww.

And I am having a real drink tonight.

    Sorry about the BFN.  I hope the "live" IUI works out better for you.  This process is hard enough without living in separate places :)

    I'm sorry you got a BFN but could you hold on to AF for a little while.  Tie her up if you have to.  And if nothing else works give her a bottle of benedryle make her drink the whole thing.  It wont kill her.  That heffer never dies.Sleep 

    Enjoy your drink!
