I Am Sick

I am sick.

And I am also not pregnant. I did cave and POAS. Today is 9dp5dt. Otherwise known as 14 days post retrieval. Though I suppose some of you will argue that it's too early to tell, a lot of clinics do their betas at 14 dp retrieval. The fact that my clinic waits 18 days doesn't change the fact that today is probably accurate.

I will dutifully keep taking my PIO until Friday, because I'm a "good" patient (though not good enough to follow my doctor's directions not to POAS), but then I'll just be waiting out the 2 weeks until I can see SuperDoc for a follow up consult to decide the following:

  1. WTF???
  2. What next?
  3. Is there anything I should change about my protocol?
  4. Is there any reason I should not start a cycle in August (the alternative is to wait until November, which is not my preference).
  5. What are we going to do to avoid another Dr. Hate situation in the future?
  6. No, seriously, WTF???

I can't say I'm surprised, or shocked.

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. This is just not fair. No platitudes, just hugs and a tiny tiny bit of hope, but I will keep it quietly to myself

I'm totally with you on the WTF. that's pretty much all that's been running through my head since last night.

amber said...

I'm so sorry. :( I haven't been commenting, but I've been reading and you've been in my thoughts. I really was hoping this would be the cycle for you. Again, I'm sorry.

{{hugs}}

Even when you know it's coming, it still SUCKS to see that pee stick glaring back at you in all its whiteness.

I'm sorry.

nishkanu said...

Waaaaaaah!! WTF? indeed. And what's with the cold chaser to the s*ck sandwich?

My Reality said...

Why would you have to wait till November? Just curious.

You will figure out the next step. I am just sorry you have to.

Carrie said...

GGGGGRRRR. I hate this for you. I am so very sorry. Sending you HUGE hugs across the country.

Were you doing a long Lupron protocol or an Antagonist? I know a couple who couldn't get any great embryos until they switched to Antagonist, but I have no idea if there is any research to back that up. Just a thought.

Huge hugs, and feel better soon.
Carrie

Emily said...

I am so sorry :( Sending big hugs!

Meghan said...

Sick and a negative--double suck!

Actually a triple suck having to wait for your WTF meeting.

Hope you feel better soon (on all fronts)

Damn, that sucks. It really, really does. I hope you are feeling better from your illness soon.

lucky #2 said...

xoxoxo

squarepeg said...

:( I'm so sorry. I was really pulling for that little guy.

Lori said...

Sorry. This just totally sucks. WTF is exactly what you need to ask.

Why would you need to wait until November to cycle? I wonder if your body would do better with a rest between cycles, but November!!! Way too long.

Jen Clark said...
