Tawny- Awww I was hoping it was a natural BFP this cycle but that's one in a million right? It's hard to ever know what to do, I hate the thought of feeling rushed before the clinic closes for the holidays but what's worse to me is waiting until the new year comes. I practically begged my IVF coordinator to get me in because I knew I couldn't wait until after the holidays being that we've waited long enough already, but you have to do what's best for you. With IVF if you do decide to move forward this month, I would suggest going the BCP route since it takes so long for Provera to kick in. WIth BCP before you said AF came two days later and this time you would certainly be close to cycle day 45 around the 26th. I would suggest talking with the clinic to see what the billing charges would be, if you have to prepay for everything OR would they wait until baseline to start the contract?
Speaking of the whooha, I tried yogurt this morning apparently the antibodic they put me on is giving me a yeast infection but nothing seems to work as long as I'm taking this antibodic. But I go back to the clinic on Thursday so I will address it then. Kind of embarrassing talking about these things to dh, puts a damper on any little existing sexlife for sure. lol
Greekchick- I think that outpatient surgery you are referring to is called a uterine screening biopsy, but I hope all goes well. Definately keep us posted. Oh by the way I saw on facebook Anton got a new puppy. Let her know we still think of her quite often too.

AFM- getting ready for work...
Had a great day with Annabelle yesterday. Cannnot wait for Thursday to get here so I can check her out of school for her birthday. Trying to think of something memorable to plan with her, maybe a pottery class? of course she will tell me we could make pottery at home with play-do. lol Yesterday we passed by an awesome bakery on our way back to her house and I told her I hear they have awesome cupcakes, she turned to me and said but Christy you already made me cheesecake. She really melts my heart....
