cd 1!!

I bet you never thought you'd see me thrilled to be posting about that huh?  I dropped down to nursing/pumping 3 times a day about a week and a half ago, and saw potential signs of AF a few days later.  As happy as I am that my cycles might be returning to normal, holy hell did I forget how much this sucks.  You would think that labor, delivery and months of various pregnancy pains would make this seem like a cakewalk, but I'm pretty damn miserable.  I hope this isn't a sign that my endo is back, because my post Lap AFs didn't hurt like this.

We have a consult with the RE on May 11th, so we'll find out what our next steps are then.

Awesome news and decision time

I finally made that call to the RE to find out what the next steps would be if we were to pursue FET and find out the cost as well as how my embryos were frozen (individually or in groups).  The awesome news is that R's insurance has changed and we now have unlimited IF coverage!  The catch is that we have a yearly deductable that has to be met or we'll practically be OOP anyway.  Sooooo, the smart thing to do is move to FET in the fall, when that deductable will be almost met or past that anyway.    This is all well and good until you sit down and realize we'd need to get started in about 2 months for a Sept. transfer. Ahhhh!    I still have no post partum AF, and they can't do anything while I'm still BFing (except our consult).  My cd3 b/w needs to be done after my 2nd PP AF, which will probably put me sometime in July, except we planned to be in Michigan for 6 weeks this summer.   Time for some choices I guess.  The practical side says we just have to make things work for Sept, because if it is a BFN we can cycle again in Dec and be completely covered.   I think I'll set up our consult in the next few weeks and find out if they have specific cycling dates for FET scheduled yet.
