    Sorry I have been a little MIA lately, but things have been crazy. I check in once in a while, but haven't posted a whole lot because I am trying to keep myself less stressed. However, I don't think that is working. I thought I was less stressed and then towards the end of when I am suppose to get AF I start thinking about everything more and more. I know I shouldn't but it truely is hard not to!!!

    I have been having some weird things happen this month and I have a message into my RE into why my body is doing this. I won't go into TMI specifics but lets just say BLOOD! I am sure it is just spotting since AF is suppose to show up soon, but it is just annoying. I took a test today only because RE told me to test after 2 weeks, of course BFN. I knew that is what it would be because of all the things that have been happening lately.

    Hope everyone else is doing well!

    This entire process is frustrating enough without your cycle going haywire on you. Hopefully you and the RE get down to the bottom of it. Let us know what the outcome is!

    Went to the RE today for u/s and they found many follicles. I talked to the RE and she said it could be several things...my endometreosis coming back, pollups, or cysts. She didn't see any pollups so she thought it could be the endo or cysts. She said it could have been a cysts that ruptured and then leaked blood. They also wanted to get some hormone levels, I should find those out tomorrow. She said she still wanted to go forward and do another IUI this month. I don't know if I am wanting to do that, but have to trust what they want to do. I just feel with my body out of wack it could be a waste of money. I guess i have to trust!

    Hope all is well with you.

    Ultimately, it's up to you. Do they think an IUI could be successful if you have cysts/the endo's growing back? Are they going to do any more tests to figure out exactly what's going on? If they're cysts, are the suspecting PCOS?

    Whatever you decide, I hope it works for you. I'm doing okay. We have a meeting/check up with our caseworker on Friday. I'm hoping to get more information from her regarding the adoption timeframe, process, etc. Today is CD19 for me. Pretty sure O has come and gone, so now I wait......some more.

    I don't know if it will/could be successful. I am going to do the IUI and just hope for the best. They haven't said they are thinking PCOS.

    Well good luck with everything. Hope everything works out for you and DH. Keep us posted on the progress.
