I didn’t really expect much from this cycle as we missed the timing for our IUI. We were pretty good about doing the deed so we’re not out completely.
The first week of the TWW we went on vacation to Asheville, NC. It was amazing! We agreed to “no baby talk” and just enjoyed time together. My husband and I are both foodies so we decided to go on a food tour. We sampled seven farm to table restaurants and I honestly ate some of the best food I’ve ever tasted! To balance gorging ourselves silly, we hiked Chimney Rock and a few trails off the beautiful blue ridge parkway. It was exactly what we needed!
Once we got home though, all of my vacation serenity disappeared. First, I started to have very mild cramping. Initially I thought this was a good sign! Three days later, I’m still cramping. I expected AF to start any hour but it still hasn’t showed. I was so convinced that this cycle was done that I told my husband to go ahead and call to make his appointment to freeze his sample for our next round. I even bought a six pack of beer to enjoy but decided to hold out for AF. But it still hasn’t started!!!
Next, this morning I had the TINIEST amount of blood when I wiped. So again, I just waited for my period to show. Nope!
Then I remembered I did the same thing when I was pregnant before. I felt cramping and figured my cycle was starting. A few days later, when it didn’t, I took a pregnancy test and it was positive.
So I’ll go ahead and test tomorrow morning. I’ve seen negative tests for the past two years and I’m not expecting anything different. I almost feel like going in to get my beta level tested because of my previous 55 day cycle in response to clomid. I’m hoping it’s not doing the same thing on letrozole.
I’m really trying to not let myself go there but I can’t help but hope this is finally our chance. *fingers crossed*
