Well, after my last few random posts, I figured I should do an IF related update. That being said, there’s not a whole lot I can say when it’s our first non-TTC cycle in 19 months. I’m currently on CD18 (I usually ovulate between 19-30), and for the first time in a very long time, I have no idea how close I am to ovulation. I haven’t been temping most mornings… it feels pointless since Charlie’s out of town from CD13-28. That being said, I guess it’d be nice to have an idea of when I ovulate so we can have an idea of when the medicated IUI cycle is to start. I’m just so ready to move forward!
I vacillate between wanting a few different things lately…
-O tomorrow already so that the next cycle begins on one of my husband’s first days back here and we can get going. This would also mean a more “normal” cycle length for me, which would be good.
-O on CD29/30 since Charlie will be back in town and we’d have one last shot at a non-medicated BFP.
-O super late on CD32 (which again, would allow us to try naturally) but assuming another BFN, that would hopefully ensure that Charlie will be in town during the actual IUI procedure next cycle so we can use a fresh sample and work on some backup insurance in the days following. 🙂 They think my cycle will be shorter when I’m on the menopur, but we’re not sure, so it’s super hard to guess when I’ll ovulate…especially when in reality, it could likely be anywhere from CD14-30…that’s a two week span! March 13th will be CD32… if I O then, the cycle will finish out and the next one will begin and Charlie would return from his next hitch on CD13 of the medicated cycle (and be home for 12 days). That would give us a pretty good chance of him being here for the IUI.
I don’t know… it looks a little crazy when I write it all out, but that’s how it is in my mind….a little crazy. 🙂 Basically, I want to O either on the shortest end or longest end of my “average” … but beggars can’t be choosers I guess. Just anxious and hopeful for the first time in a long time – I’m so ready to get my BFP!
