Beta = 4.1

Negative. The 4.1 is "most likely" from trigger, so they wanted me to come in for beta#2 in a few days - but I'll be out of town. I have another beta next saturday (don't know why they'd want a second one since my AF would have already started).

We discussed March IVF. If I wasn't going out of town, I could have possibly started THIS MONTH, but with insurance and all that, it'd be a little iffy. So we're going to start suppression with bcp as soon as AF arrives and March 17th will mark when things start to happen. She'll give me a detailed protocol/calendar at my appointment next Saturday.

Oh, Nancy, I'm so sorry. I wanted so badly for you not to have to go with plan B. My heart is heavy for you too. Hopefully the IVF will do the trick though (yay! for insurance). Big hug!

So sorry Nancy, I've been checking back frequently today, holding out hope for positive news. Glad you have a plan already in motion for IVF, it will give you something else to start focusing on.

Nancy,

I am so sorry to hear that the beta was negative. Unfortunately there isn't much that I can say that will make you feel better other than I am thinking about you and your family. ***HUG***

Maybe you can convince them to skip the 2nd beta if you get AF before then.

Onward and upward to IVF. Let us know if you have any questions.

I hope you're able to have a decent weekend.

Sorry, I just caught up with all your posts over the last few days. I'm so sorry that this cycle didn't work for you.

I'm glad you and your husband are in sync for next steps. IVF is a crazy hormonal ride, strap everyone in for the ride, but if you get a BFP it will be well worth it.

March 17th... St. Patty's Day... that's got to be lucky.

I'm so sorry Nancy :o(. I am glad, however, that you're not dwelling *too much* and getting a plan into motion. It's easy for others to think, 'well that sucks, but it's just another negative cycle'... but I know how much more it is then that to you, so it's a relief to see you moving forward rather than standing still. I'm glad you have that to focus on right now.

Ugh, so sorry it has come to this. I hope the St Paddy's Day IVF will be your lucky one.

So sorry Nancy - I hope March (and April) will be your lucky months!

Ugh, that f*n blows. Have a big drink, and buy yourself a hot outfit, cuz why the hell not at this point. You deserve something, anything...

I am really sorry the IUI didn't work out. I think it is a very good sign the IVF will be on such a lucky day! Fingers crossed for you!

Chicklet - March 17th (actually, I'll be out of town on the 17th, but she's working around it) marks the END of suppression and the start of stimulation.

I'll get me protocol next saturday, I'll definitely let you know. cycle buddies! well, kind of. You start beginning of march, yes?
