Prepping for a FET

My fluke cycle ended in AF last night, so today is CD1 - starting fresh! I'm upset about the negative, even though I've known for several days that it wasn't going to miraculously change; but I'm focusing on the positive. My cycle was 30 days long, with a 14 day luteal phase. That's pretty darned impressive for a non-ovulator. I suppose I should thank the Clomid for doing what it was supposed to do for the first time ever. :)

It's a new cycle - hello to my lovely ICLW friends. Our plan this month is to use Letrozole {aka Femara} from days 2-6, hopefully bring on ovulation - and then delve head first into our first ever frozen IVF cycle. We've never done a FET before; our first two rounds of IVF were full stim rounds. We have two little frosties on ice from Georgia's cycle, and I really hope we get as lucky with one of those. I have an appointment at my clinic on Monday to have a blood test, and chat with the nurses. I'm excited to have a plan of action.

My little lady and I have been on our own the last few weeks, and will be for another week or so. She's pretty good company, but has had some rough nights - I blame teething, these blasted molars need to get on with it already. It's those moments where I really miss {and appreciate} how good hubby is with her when he's home. When she's fed, bathed & in bed, I can relax.. and I am so, so tired. All in all, we're doing okay. She's a great kid!


What's on the cards for you, this current cycle? :)

Stopping over from ICLW. Love how you threw the shout-out in your post. Here's to (hopefully) ovulating this go-round! :)

We are enjoying these Summer months and starting out bloodwork and my SIS for our 2nd FET in July. It's amazing how different and easier a FET cycle is. It's a lot less stressful in terms of taking so much medicine! :)

I'm excited for your new journey. I hope it results in something just as precious and beautiful as your daughter.

FET is so much more relaxing than a fresh cycle! Fingers crossed yours is a walk in the park and you 'reach your destination' right after :)

You seem to be really positive (I need take a leaf out of your book!)A plan of action is always good, brings some control back into the uncontrollable. Good luck for next cycle!

Have you ever looked into myoinositol? It really helps my PCOS and regulates my periods.http://www.pcosdiva.com/2012/07/de-mystifying-myo-inositol/

I haven't stopped over here in awhile, but I was thinking about you lately and wondering if you guys were trying again. I'm sorry to hear that it's going to be as tough or tougher than last time, but fingers crossed for you on this whole journey!
