I survived Mother's day. The day involved lots of junk food, netflix and burying my head in the sand. This year was particularly hard because I had hoped to be doing an IUI this weekend, instead it looks as though this cycle will be cancelled again. Even so, this year had a glimmer of maybe attached to it that we have never had before. I took my last dose of gonal-f this morning as well as a single dose of bravelle. Tomorrow brings two vials of bravelle and the next day we will have another ultrasound! I am expecting that Tuesday will produce no new follicle growth and for the cycle to be cancelled. I do have to admit that I am trying to be hopeful...so much so that I have been buying into several of the old wives tales, such as using hot packs, drinking lots of whole milk and propping my feet up against a wall. I feel silly doing these things, but I'm getting desperate!
