update and a new passport stamp...

Still no transfer.  We started our FET cycle in December only to stop when my bw still had doc concerned about my risk of D.VT.  I stopped using Lo.venox in mid December and was instructed to come in with the start of my next cycle in hopes that giving my body a month off would do me some good. 

As of the 22nd, CD 42, still no AF.  I went for labs and was instructed to take Es.trace for 25 days and begin 12 days of Pr.overa on the 16th day of that process.  This all will hopefully build my lining so that whenever AF does show, my lining sheds enough to give me a clean slate.

With the start of this next cycle, whenever that may be, I will go for labs yet again and try to schedule an HSG.  It's been over two years since my last one and before moving onto transfer, doc feels we should have a little look-see just to make sure it's still all clear. 

As much as I want to be frustrated that we are pushed back yet again, I am happy that they are being proactive and are paying attention our case.

All of the waiting has been put to good use.  We added a new passport stamp by spending a week in Ireland this month and it was absolutely amazing.  We've visited a lot of beautiful places but this was by far my favorite trip yet.  Here are some pics (all from camera on phone)...

I loved every minute of our vacation and can't wait to plan another trip there.  There is just so much to see and as cheesy as it may sound, I really just felt happy there. 

We are also hoping that between our visit, kissing the Bl.arney Stone, and investing in some of the fabled Bun.ratty M.ead that we have brought some of the luck of the Irish home :)

Always remember to forget
The troubles that passed away.
But never forget to remember
The blessings that come each day
