Finally theres something to say

Well, I got an email while I was gone this past weekend saying that K&V had finally talked to Cr. Virro! Great news in itself but whats even better is that we are starting to cycle again! V can start her meds as soon as she starts her cycle which from what they said was in just a couple days at the most. I'm not sure when I will be starting or anything like that but I'm sure I will find out soon.
Anyway, we are looking for a fresh transfer at the end of May and the best part is that Dr. Virro said that because its a fresh transfer the thickness of my lining wasn't as big of an issue as it was with the frozen transfer. YAY!!!
I hope that tomorrow I will find out what my next step is and when everything will start. I'm so excited and anxious. I was really hoping to have this baby just before Christmas but it won't be too much longer after Christmas that they will have a healthy baby to take home so all is well.

I can't wait to get going again and keep posting with all the news of a wonderful pregnancy!

Its over again

Well, today was the day for my official beta test to find out if it worked and it was negative. Well, actually the clinic gave me the wrong test so I have to go back again tomorrow to get the right one but I started my period anyway. I really didn't want to see that but theres nothing I can do.

Its been a very rough and emotional day today and I'm going to be so thankful when its finally over with. Hopefully tomorrow will start off better and the sun will shine again soon.

Dr. Virro, or more like the coordinator at the clinic Helen, doesn't want us to start taking meds right away to go ahead and do a fresh transfer so we, V and I, are very frustrated. Well, more so than we were anyway. I just don't know what to do anymore. I want to scream and throw myself on the floor and throw a fit over all the bad news we keep getting. We just have to get some good news soon. From the sounds of it though we are looking for a fresh transfer sometime in May, probably the very end of it or very beginning of June. V has to have a phone conference with Dr. Virro and hopefully he will call her tomorrow or the next day but it could be next week too.

So, thats that for now. We are in waiting mode once again....

I'm home!

The weather in Canada was horrible yesterday morning and I had fears of my flight being canceled and not getting home until today. Well, part of my fears came true. I got to the airport and my first flight had been canceled! I was going to break down and cry right there. I've never wanted to get home so badly in my life I don't think. LOL
Anyway, I asked the lady working there what to do next and said that my final destination was Minneapolis and what a sweetheart she was! She put me on a direct flight to Minneapolis!!!! I had to wait an extra 20 mins or so to get on the plane but flying time was only 1 hour and 20 mins. I was back in Minneapolis at 3:40pm.
My mom being the nut that she is was driving around the WRONG terminal waiting for me! LOL They got me about 20 past 4 which was fine. They took me out to eat before we got to town too and I was able to see the look on my dad's face when he walked through the door at his surprise party! It was so great.
At almost 2 am when we left the party we stopped at Wal-mart so I could buy some pregnancy tests too. Ansil looked at me funny but he agreed to do it anyway. I told him I just couldn't wait, I had to get them. LOL
And of course, I tested today already. I couldn't help it though, I'm so anxious. I'm only 4 days past the transfer so I knew it was early and of course it was negative but thats ok. I've already got some early signs BUT the progesterone I have to take can also mimick pregnancy signs so I'm trying not to put too much hope on those.
Our official pregnancy/beta test is on April 11th but I know that if I get a positive pregnancy test I will be telling K&V right away! There is just no way that I would be able to keep it a secret for more than 2 seconds! LOL

Hopefully more great news coming soon!
