    @ScubaGal thanks you're so sweet the thought of doing it gives me butterflies...the goal is to hold out until Saturday, which will be 12dp3dt or day 31 of my cycle. Tomorrow is day 28 so if AF doesn't come that could be a good sign...but I do know that the progesterone can hold off AF too, ggrrrrr. So many variables!! Scary scary scary. I need something to consume my brain - I have some training today so hopefully that'll absorb me for today how are you doing lovely? You seem a lot brighter and more positive now?


    2009 - 2010 - diagnosed with severe endo - 2 x laps, 1 x laparotomy to remove endo.
    2011 - IVF - 1st cycle - chemical pregnancy, FET - BFN, 2nd FET - BFN
    2013 - another laparotomy - lost right ovary and tube to a 15cm endometrioma
    2014 - July - cycle #2

    You're welcome. I consider you my endo buddy. definitely brain consuming activities are a good idea - I think for my next TWW I'm going to re-read all my Wendy Holden ebooks. Such fun fluffy novels... Takes me a few hours to read each one and I think I've got enough to get me through 6 or 7 evenings. That plus watching the West Wing...

    I think holding out as long as possible to POAS is really smart - this time around I won't POAS and I'm considering asking for a later BT since there's nothing they can do to prevent an early miscarriage I'd just rather not get my hopes up too early.

    I'm doing a bit better thanks. Still having bad days and bad hours, bit of anger and depression kind of lurking in the background but my grand plan to go to a full stim if the FET doesn't work and leave the other two frosties on ice is giving me a sense of some level of control. I just really hope it's not another miscarriage this time or something like an ectopic. That would be pretty cruel.

    I've lived with a long history of depression and an anxiety disorder and had periods of being suicidal when I was younger so, ironically, I've actually got a really high level of resilience and some top notch coping skills. Sort of mentally ideally prepared for the IVF rollercoaster.

    I do feel a bit sad in a way because i was so on board the positivity and well being train last cycle and for the first time in a long time I felt really happy and happy about being happy, even if only for a week or so from the first positive to when we found out it wouldn't last. I don't know honestly if I can feel that again which would be sad.

    But on the other hand it's true what they say about IVF, I'm so much closer to my husband these last few months and weeks especially. We are a different husband and wife because of it and it really seems like if we can survive this we can handle anything.

    Wow I identity so much with you. I too in my younger years struggled with similar things due to things that happened in the past. I do have to say without those experiences I wouldn't be who I am today so Im grateful as to how strong it has all made me. All good now and I don't have any inclination at all to deal with things in an unhealthy way. Feel free to pm me if you ever need to talk or vent! I do like your plan if the next FET is unsuccessful. Very smart thinking I don't know if we'll able to afford another full cycle straightaway if things don't work out with our last frostie after the one I have on board so we'll just have to wait and see I guess!
