Bloodwork and Hope

My clinic sent K to have her hcg levels tested on Friday in addition to her progesterone levels. They called K today to let her know that her beta hcg was back to zero and her P4 was 15, so she has ovulated and will get a period in the next week or so. Tonight K has some "pink slime" when she wiped, so we think she might have full flow tomorrow or the next day. I am excited to schedule her SHG, so we can get our calendar! All you IVF vets know how important it is to us to get the official dates!

It's funny because I'm actually hopeful and optimistic again. I've said it before and will say it again ... my highs are high and my lows are low. I range from being completely hopeless to having so much hope that I allow myself to daydream about what might be. I have a dirty little secret to share ... I went to an on-line IVF due date calculator to find out the EDD if K gets a bfp with an ET on 6/15 (I'm estimating our ET to be around this time). The EDD for a singleton would be 3/2, which I could've guessed as I did my FET on 8/14 and my EDD with Myles was 5/1. I figured that most people would think I'm nuts, but when I told K she told me that she'd already figured it out herself! :) I love how we think alike so often and that we are both thinking positive thoughts!

I'm so glad that you're able to have hope. Good news that K ovulated lately so period should be right around the corner.

I love how you sneak a peak at the potential plans for IVF.

Here's hoping the witch shows up soon and great to hear your feeling postive again.

I love that you have a plan and sound so hopeful. I remember having so much hope with each new "plan" and the first thing I also did was estimate my due date. I loved "planning it out". I can't wait for you to get started. I will be cheering you on the entire way!
