27... 28... 29!?!? .... 30!?!?!?!?

Amazing how the numbers 28 - 30 have become very significant in my life. So no good news unfortunatly, but Peapod had a longer period then usual. While we've both become much better at tamping down enthusiasm after day 28 everything goes out the window.

So this last time Peapod made it to day 30 before AF showed up to ruin the party. Both of us started to hope, but birth control tests were showing no results. Day 30; AF; and boom! back to being stuck in the land of IF.

Granted we didn't have high hopes for this one, it was Clomid only, but man it was nice to hope. Next session will be Clomid and Ovidrel, no IUI since we'll be on vacation on IUI day. So.. hopefully this time if not I think we're going to start looking into IVF and figuring out how in the world to finance this.

Test results: Doing Great

Checked in with the Cardiologist on Tuesday and had some great news. Not only does my heart look great, but all my bloodwork is doing well. As a heavy dude I'm always nervous that the bloodwork is going to show up with something awful like Diabetes, or severe Cholestrol. I generally eat pretty healthy, but I didn't do that so much in college where I gained most of it. Those of you who have ever struggled with weight loss you know how hard it is to lose a lot of weight.

Now I would be all about getting back into a plan for weightloss, but one of the things the doctors told me was that too much dieting and exercise decreases overall reproductive health. So.. not only am I stuck with weightloss, but REALLY slow weightloss. Ah well things I do for IF!

Everyone have a great weekend!
