Another good Pap. We are now back on the trying horse, or at least we will be when I start my next cycle. It feels like it could be any day now.

I was starting to think I might be pregnant this month. My breasts have been very sore. At first I chalked it up to the particularly rough breast exam from the evil substitute GYN, but she didn't leave actual bruises, so that can't be it. I have also been having headaches (not something I have problems with very often) in the evenings, and last night I was nauseous. I had some spotting (very light and brown as in old blood) the other day, but nothing since. I could be but I kind of doubt it because I have been having that "it's coming any minute" feeling on and off all day. We shall see. I'm just glad it's not another 20 day cycle.

The Husband and I have decided to do another Femara cycle and then move onto insemination if we don't get lucky this time. Not much to post until then.

In Limbo

Haven't posted much lately because there is not much to post. I woke up the day of my scheduled Pap to my period. On cycle day 20 no less. After a minor freak out with the Husband on the phone, I called my OB/GYN and spoke with a nurse who reassured me that the early arrival was probably due to the hormone fluctuations of the previous Femara cycles. I rescheduled with the back up GYN and that appointment was last Tuesday.

It was pretty uneventful. Everything is normal so far and the Pap results should be in soon. Assuming my cycle is somewhat normal this month, I should have the results in time to start Femara next cycle.

I have decided that the backup GYN is evil and I will not be using her again. If I can't get in with my regular, then I will just need to find another backup. Of course, now that I know there will be a 4 month waiting period for routine appointments not relating to expensive procedures not covered by insurance, I can just schedule the annual well in advance and hope that should it be an actual problem, she could fit me in sometime in the current calender year.

More updates as they come.
