I wouldn't deny having more kids, if you want more kids, just because the gap isn't your ideal. It seems very little works on our desired timelines.

I agree bigger age gaps works. My son and daughter have almost 7 years between them and they are best friends, sure it helps considering they are both autistic and that's fine. I'm just a bit apprehensive about traveling whilst pregnant since I'm classed as a high risk pregnancy. Then traveling with a baby, although my son was fine to a trip to Sweden at 3 months and good with short travel plans from 2 onwards. Not sure how to do long term travel with a baby, but I will look into it more and then decide if I could do it or not.

Yep, there's still time. It isn't done until af shows up - remember that.

It seems that we're skipping my next cycle as well. My doc wants Dh to do a more detailed SA before he'll do another IUI. Only problem is, DH has been really struggling with his depression since we came home from our vacation. I don't want to hassle him about going to the clinic for tests when he's feeling like this. I'm on CD23 and considering my last cycle was 25 days, I'm guessing that we'll simply run out of time. Tomorrow is a public holiday here, then there's the weekend, so by the time next week comes around, af will be here. Not much I can do except suck it up (and share a bottle of wine with a friend when she comes back in early August!).

ProfWife... don't lose hope.

Trying not to lose hope - - - but really wishing I could get a positive before I have to leave on our trip.

We leave tonight for part 1 (my parents' house) overnight. Then we're heading up to N. Florida for a track and field event his father's a competitor in Fri-Tues.

Negative this morning. I was hoping to get a positive this morning so I could go get the blood work started and get orders so I could do it in N. Florida during the next few days. No such luck though. Packing my tests. My official test day on my protocol is tomorrow. We shall see.

I really wanted to have something on hand to announce it in a cute way to our parents if we were...especially since my parents' anniversary is tomorrow.

Oh well...

@ProfWife: you and I were wishing buddies this go-around without realizing it. Today is 12 DPO, still completely BFN. I have accepted it.

I had several uncharacteristic breakdowns this week, but I think it's because 22 Jul was the cycle start date of my BFP cycle last year and I just had another birthday - and it was just a lot for one week. I think Hubster and I have decided to call this quits for awhile, and possibly do IVF in Nov or Dec, but will make a decision in Oct. I still have my "official" blood draw tomorrow and need to schedule a final consult with our RE, but I do not want to rush into IVF and really want my body to come off this hormone-induced roller coaster before we make a 10-15K decision.

FX for everyone else nearing the end of a cycle and for newbie's DH to get himself settled/ sorted.

Hi, ladies. I don't have time to post a lot, but I'm sorry you are seeing those BFN's. I know it sucks. Clande, I can relate with the breakdowns for sure. Mine have been less and less lately, but you never know when it's going to hit you.

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend where you can "forget" about this for a little bit. And maybe I'll take my own advice, too.
