Out of Office

I'm so excited about re-vitalizing the Braces Bunch and the 2nd generation of bunchers! I will be responding to those of you have e-mailed me/left a comment in the next few days. For now, please excuse my delay as I am currently "out-of-the-office" trying to clear my mind before the fire-storm of cycling begins.

A quick update: my AMH came back at 3.1--my IVF nurse "Kate" (we call her this because Mook thinks she looks exactly like Kate from Lost) said this was perfect. So I'm always happy to hear that. Here's where the problem is: my cycle seems to be a bit out of whack this month. Of course I had to tell "Kate" that it has been "spot-on" (ha, pun intended) for the past many-months. So Wednesday night, which was CD 23, I was spotting--bright red. Then it stopped, then it started again Thursday night, and this pattern has continued...so I am still planning on going in for my day 3 blood work tomorrow at a lab out of town so I don't run the risk of missing the window. I may have to end up going back later this week when I am back near my clinic.

This also proves to be difficult in the feminine maintenance department while near bodies of water with sharks...

Back to doing this:

  3. I think there's always a beach curse with Aunt Flo! I hope you enjoy your trip and clear your mind.

    I was at the beach on a family vacation on year and had to sneak away twice to have labwork done. None of my in-laws knew what we were going through with IUI's. It was interesting to say the least.

    Have a great time : )

  8. I hope you enjoy your little break sweetie. Yes, there must be something in the air or something to do with the the full moon - as you know, I also had a 23 day cycle but all in all, it wasn't too bad because now it means I can start IVF sooner!!

    Good luck with everything sweetie, will be checking in for updates!! Yay on that wonderful AMH number :)

    Much love xxx

    Hope you're having a fantastic time otherwise!
