So I'm pretty sure that we didn't conceive this cycle. I'm not being pessimistic, just a realist. There have been a few different signs/symptoms that AF is coming soon, but largely I'm going with this gut feeling that I'm not pregnant. And while I'm disappointed, I'm not upset. This cycle was a huge leap for me. First, I actually developed a follicle/egg. Second, I had a positive OPK before the trigger shot. Third, I ovulated! And finally my LP was a normal length this time. I've decided that for sure I'm not going to test. I just don't want to see the BFN. If my cycle restarts this weekend or even early next week, I have enough time to do one more round before I see the new RE. I'd feel better having two "normal" cycles under my belt when I go to him with my concerns. I'm also wondering if I should be asking my current RE about other things like an HSG, SA analysis, & PCT or if I should just wait till the new RE.
Also, in response to the comment that Cassandra left on the pp. I think I may have worded my intro wrong. I'm not suggesting that everyone wait till they want to have kids to get married, I'm saying that *I* didn't want to get married until I, well both of us, were ready to have kids. I love Kevin and I've always known that I was going to spend the rest of my life with him. But I also loved living my own life and didn't need to be married to him to know that I had the life long commitment from him. And I let him know my thoughts and feelings about both matters almost as soon as we got together. But for everyone else, to each her own.
