Thanks to everyone for all of my "Birthday Wishes"! All in all, it was tons of fun. Barry rocks, as usual, and he bought me a Wii AND a beautiful dozen pink roses. :swoon:

I suck at Wii, but I am having so much fun. Yes, I am still a child! Okay, now I have to decide what to take to the 4th cookout.... any suggestions?

Here we go again...

I guess we'll be trying again come September or October. After injects, a trigger shot and 4 beautiful follicles, my progesterone on 9dpo was a 2.6! I guess that was my body giving me the finger, ya think?

We are going to increase the meds, stim for a shorter amount of time, use a stronger trigger and take progesterone from the get-go. I will also be monitored much more closely this time around.

Now all I need is for the deployment to end.

Big sigh...

Only 12 more weeks or so...

until Barry's battalion packs up and gets the hell outta Dodge, er, well, Iraq. Our visit was wonderful. It was so nice to have us time even if it was peppered with sadness from his father's illness. We spent every other day at his parents house... and then did something fun or relaxing the other days. We ate at every restaurant in NWA, lol. I'm not really joking.

Barry's father is at home with Hospice care, and he continues to have his good days and bad. I am worried that he will pass and Barry will not get to be here form his funeral. Barry said his goodbye while he was here, but it still weighs heavily on my mind.

On the TTC front, My first round of inject was a breeze. My body was very slow to react, but now we have a much better idea of what to do when we have the next round. I feel that this was a test run, so I have very little hopes of getting that elusive BFP... but I guess stranger things have happened, right?

Who knows maybe Barry will come home to a preggo belly. I can hope, can't I??

Until next time!
