beta

Beta is in. Zero. I started spotting about 20 minutes before I got the call.

On to IUI#2. Same drill as last time: CD 2/3/4 ultrasound, Clomid, CD 10 ultrasound, trigger shot, and the IUI should fall sometime around Thanksgiving.

Even though I'm already spotting, I'm sending AF lots of "please come on Saturday" vibes. This would put the IUI the day after Thanksgiving and I wouldn't have to worry about fibbing to my boss again for being out of work in the morning.

I'm sad. Very sad, but not surprised. Joey is heartbroken. We just have to pick up the pieces and try again.

Gosh that REALLY sucks. I wish there was something I could say to make you feel better, but just know I'm here for you if you need a shoulder. Hoping AF stays away til Saturday. It sucks having to ask off work for this stuff around the holidays. Despite having crappy news today I hope you were able to have a pretty good day off from work. (((HUGS)))

Boooo!

Kelly said...

Blah. I'm just so sorry. (((HUGS))) I hope you and Joey are both ok. Stay away until Saturday, AF!!

Aw man, Shit! I'm so so sorry Katie (and Joey!) = this sucks!

I hope that the progesterone holds AF off for a few days so you don't have to get turkey basted on T-giving :)

((hugs))

Sorry. Found your blog on the ICLW list for this month. I'm nearing the bitter end of my 2ww too and have two BFN HPTs under my belt. It blows. Hoping for the best for you with AF and next cycle.

I was so hoping for you hon. I'm sorry this was a bust but I'll cross my fingers for you that AF stays away until Saturday. ****hugs****

Jen said...

Bummer. I was really hoping it had worked for you. I'm sorry!

Tina said...

So sorry...even though you were "prepared" - it doesn't make the phone call any easier. I'm onto round 2 with you...

Erin said...

Gah. That sucks. I'm getting the results of my IUI on Friday, but I already have cramps. I'm expecting AF on Saturday. That would put us both doing our second IUIs at the same time!

I know I'm a new reader, but I'm always around to vent to!

JC said...

Awe I'm so sorry!!! I sorry for both of you and that you're both hurting. I hope AF stays away and the next one is it! ((hugs))

A said...

Oh, I am so sorry!!! I sure will be praying that you regain some hope for next cycle (hug)

Kelli-Sue said...

I am so sry Katie (and Joey) I don't know what else to say, I am sure you've been hearing that all day. I will continue to pray for you and Joey and hope that next time is "the time"

**Hugs!!**

Katie said...

Well, dammit. I'm so sorry. I hope at least AF cooperates for you, so your timing can be what you want it to be next cycle. And also that the bitch doesn't stay long OR treat you badly.

((hugs))

Katie said...

Thank you so much. All of you. I really don't know what I would do without you.

A baby for Al? said...

Shit, that sucks. I'm so sorry, I was really hopeful for that this would be your cycle. I hope AF stays away and the timing works out well for your next cycle.

A big virtual hug to you.

Rebecca said...

I'm SO sorry. This just really sucks and I'm just so sorry. Many ((hugs))

Jem said...

So sorry for the bad news. I know about having to lie to the boss. Luckily, my boss is a guy and so I just say I have "female issues" and make vague gestures towards my tummy. No more is needed to be said.

(((Hug))

Jenn said...

So sorry! Hope that things go like you plan/will them too!
