Everything you are feeling is completely understandable. And I agree, it sucks major balls how fast it seems to happen for people who claim they weren't trying. I broke down in tears at one FB friend's PG announcement that she captioned "Unexpected, but we are expecting!".

But I really do think that chances are, it will happen for you. Of course no one knows how long it will take, but I really think it will happen. You are doing all the right things. And in some ways perhaps the fact that your diagnosis is unexplained (although super freaking frustrating) puts the odds in your favor

I would consider embryo adoption or donor eggs/sperm before regular adoption...I really want to experience pregnancy and that way I would still feel like I played a role in the process of bringing my child into the world. If that wasn't an option I would consider regular adoption. We will cross that bridge if we come to it.

Starting spotting this morning and my lower back pain in setting in so I should see full flow in the next few hours. 3 days since my last dose of progesterone - like clock work every time!

Thanks Lucy, I hope you're right. According to research there is an 80% chance that I will conceive if I pursue a treatment plan of expectant management-IUI-IVF.

Ask I would also consider embryo adoption, but I know there is a very (very) long waitlist for that where I live. If we were successful with IVF and had extra embryos I would give them up for adoption for this reason.

Sorry to hear about your spotting Ask. I also started spotting this morning. HPT was negative so trigger is out of my system.

A nurse at my clinic said it was time to renew blood work, so I sent in a message asking if I could have the requisition forms sent to me so that I can do this for July. I'm asking for Day 3, 21, prolactin, testosterone, thyroid and AMH. Also asked if there was anything that DH had to repeat.

Thanks Belle...I knew it was just a waiting game after the negative blood test and my hpts went negative. I'm sorry you are spotting too. How many dpo are you?

As soon a AF shows I'll call and schedule my ovarian reserve testing for tomorrow or the next day. Mine is a year old so they want me to repeat it. My AMH 1 year ago was 3.0 which is really good for my age and indicates I'll respond well to IVF so I hope it hasn't changed! DH has to do another SA too...poor guy has a hard time with that. We will definitely have to have a sample frozen ahead of time if/when we do IVF.

AF showed a few hours ago. Feeling pretty emotional. Expecting I'll pass some tissue/clots soon like I have with my past CPs. Definitely having a hard time today and the 600mg that usually erases my lower back pain is barely taking the edge off.

IVF clinic called and I'll be going in for bloodwork tomorrow and for my IVF consult in 2 weeks. I told the nurse we are going to try on our own this month (she asked if I wanted to start IVF this cycle). Still lots of mixed feelings.

I dont look at a car loan the same as IVF just because with a car loan youre guaranteed a car at the end. I know what youre trying to say though and in that light, no its not a huge chunk.

Ask, sorry about AF. I hope shes over quickly and the b/w comes back normal.

Thanks Earth.

**TMI warning!** As suspected I just passed two tissue looking clots...this only seems to happen when I have CPs. It happened in April too when I had an evap looking line on an FRER and then a negative blood test at 15dpo, so now I'm thinking that may have been a CP too. I do usually have small red clots in my period but these are always bigger and mixed with white and pink tissue. Not sure what causes that.

I'm sorry AF has started Ask, strange tissue clots too. I've never had those.

Earth i would probably feel the same as you if I already had kids. For me the chance to have a baby is worth the cost of IVF. If at the very least it gives me peace of mind and closure so that I can go on with my life then it will be money well spent.

Ask, sorry about AF.. and I think once or twice I had some cloths like that last year, but I never took any tests and just assumed it was my regular period with some stuff in it.. hmm..

Have you guys considered getting prices from other places? Seems pretty expensive for one try.. Wish I could be more of assistance!

I have started looking into tickets going back to Bangkok for a couple of weeks in August, its pretty expensive going during summer holidays here.. sigh..

CD10 for me, we'll start the schedule now, though I have been slacking with my vitamins and eating waaay too much sugar.. haha, I have been very kind to my sweet tooth but that is about it..
