Everything but the kitchen sink....

I haven't really blogged much during my break cycle other than the 30 Day Blog Challenge (which I didn't finish) so I feel like this post is going to be all over the place.

Thankfully my break went by quickly. We have been so busy, I can't even believe that September is over already. Operation Washboard did not go so well. Despite working out 3-4 days a week and trying to monitor my portions (i already eat pretty healthy), I lost a pound. Looks like the spanx will be making an appearance and my BFF's wedding. My plan is to keep it up though, although my exercise will be limited to walking due to stims and hope in the next month, I miraculously become bikini ready, which is probably about the same as my odds are of getting knocked up this month.

I had my first follie/E2 check today. Last cycle I started out on 150u of Follistim and over responded so this cycle we started at 100u. I said in my last post I didn't have a good feeling about this cycle but I was hoping it was just the illness. It wasn't. I went in today and I had nothing. 3 barely measurable follies, no lining to speak of and my E2 was only 52. We upped my dose to 150u and I go back on Friday so we'll see. She also said I will definitely need to be on estrogen supplementation for my lining this cycle. Now I am feeling guilty that I skipped out on acupuncture and POM juice this cycle although I guess it's not to late to start. They didn't seem to get me pregnant last cycle so I thought I would save some $$ skipping them. On top of all that, B has a fishing trip scheduled for mid cycle, he leaves CD 16, which I totally thought I would have had my IUI's by then but now I doubt it. He said he would skip the trip but I feel so guilty about it. He has really been looking forward to it. Why do my ovaries have to be so damn difficult??

In other news, B and I are dog sitting for a friends this week for 10 days. I am super excited about it. We both grew up with labs but it is just not feasible for us to get a dog right now with how much we travel. We will have our very own chocolate lab for 10 days though. He is 12 and super mellow, the perfect dog for us. I am afraid I won't want to give him back!

That's it for now, I have a couple of other things on my mind but I will save them for later.
