Thanks everyone for all your kind words! It's so nice to see new faces from ICLW.
As for the questions regarding my adult dreams...I wish I could give you lots of lurid interesting details, but I always, always forget my dreams within 3-5 minutes of waking. If I had my way, though, it may have included Brad Pitt circa Fight Club, shag carpet, some mirrors on the ceiling and cheesy 70s music (just kidding...well, everything except for Mr. Pitt).
Anyway, I'm feeling none too positive right now about my chances for a BFP. Still getting the occasional cramping, the lower back pain is still lingering, but the sore nipples and boobs have disappeared. This is the same series of symptoms that I've felt for all my negative IUIs. It's such a bummer and I can almost guarantee that AF is knocking on my door.
Oh, and I'm embarrassed to admit this, but I POAS yesterday night. It was only 7dp2t, but I've probably only POAS maybe 4-5 times during my entire TTC because my luteal phase is so short and AF arrives before I can POAS, so I decided to go for it. Obviously, BFN. I didn't really expect to see anything considering I had peed just 30 minutes ago and I was only 7dp2t. The only thing I did confirm was that the HCG is out of my system.
So, now I'm thinking about IVF #2. Do I stick with the my current Dr. P? Do I got with Dr. Zou.ves in Foster City (another very prominent fertility doc in the Bay Area)? Or do we take out the big guns and go for CCRM in Denver?
Do genes matter?
