Well, my husband and I made it back from Spain. I'm a Spanish teacher and we took a group of 7 students. It was amazing but it's good to be home.
I actually took a pregnancy test this time. I usually don't allow myself till I'm "late" (which has been never) but there wasn't any spotting at all this cycle (usually is) so I got pumped and took a pregnancy test at 4:00 am before getting on the plane to Europe. It was negative, but I still hoped.
Got my period on the airplane and dealt with that disappointment over the Atlantic Ocean. Since I was with students, I was stronger than usual and didn't have a meltdown even though I just saw the 2 IUI's fail along with $400. Periods almost feel like "dead children" to me these days. However, trying to be optimistic, I knew the 9 days in Spain would help speed through those CD 1-10.
So now, here I am, cycle day 11. Because of the bad timing of my IUI's, they have finally insisted that I get monitored vaginally via ultrasound. Let me give you an "image"
