Welcome, 2015!

Hellooooooooooooo 2015!
I was really hoping you'd arrive with a bang and bring my period along with you - which is mysteriously MIA (no, not pregnant) - but apparently you've decided to start the year off testing my patience once again! :)
I'm not making any resolutions this year. I will keep plugging away at our little family, our home, and myself - but no goals, no let-downs. Just life, however it comes.
So.... where am I right now?
I'm now at CD38. This was a 'rest cycle' after our IVF retrieval in late November - and yep, as you've guessed, it didn't really work out being a particularly restful cycle. My specialist had me use Letrozole to make sure I'd ovulate & have a regular length cycle, which didn't work. By CD21, I still had no signs of ovulation - so with a quick scan and a very average looking follicle, I went ahead and triggered with Ovidrel, since I'd had it leftover from my previous cycle. A few timed sessions, and we hoped we'd have a regular old TWW after that. 
Except my temperatures never showed an ovulation pattern, even after the trigger shot. And when 14dpo came, and went, I tested - thinking maybe we'd beaten the odds, and gotten lucky? Nope. Everything is negative, which we expected. But where the heck is AF? It's now 16dpo - and she's nowhere in sight.
Provera it is.
I've started that, but I'm HOPEFUL my regular old period is just around the corner.. either way, we should know in a week or so. And maybe after that, we will have time to squeeze a cycle in before February comes - because we're going to FIJI mid-month, huzzah! 
I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens. Fingers, toes, and all other appendages crossed that we get to transfer before we go away. That's the only thing I'm really wishing for right now!

Hoping for a light at the end of the tunnel in 2015. No one deserves it more than you. xo
