Another Negative...

I actually tested on Sunday afternoon (12dpo) and got a negative.  However, I kept up my progesterone supplements until I tested this morning and got another negative.  I told Nick when we woke up this morning, "Nothing like stress and anguish first thing in the morning."  At least today we were expecting a negative.  I had myself a little too invested in this cycle, I think.  I mean, I had definitely 2 eggs, with the possibility of a 3rd and we had a decent sperm count AND they got to take the easy route, why wouldn't it work?  We were both excited to test Sunday, and I knew it would be bad if it was negative.  I peed in the cup, dipped it and got in the shower (I told Nick today that I'm pretty sure I've peed in more solo cups than I've drank out of). 

The worst thing EVER is seeing Nick examine it so closely looking for any semblance of a line.  He'll hold it in every light possible and turn it like he's looking at a precious diamond.  The look on his face when he can't even imagine a line there just breaks my heart. 

Anyway, I used my last progesterone supplement last night, so hopefully my period will arrive in a few days.  We've decided to try one more IUI before moving on to IVF, since I know quite a few people for whom the third time was the charm.  Hopefully, we'll be in that group, too.  Now, if it will just arrive at a time that's conducive to a trip to Iowa City...

They say the third time is a charm :) I hope that is true for yall. Seriously, let me know if you have any questions about IVF. It has allot more compenants then IUI and can be overwhelming but hopefully we will have a positive result that will make it worth it, right....good luck girl. You know I am praying for yall.
