It’s finally, finally, finally negative. I could have peed on a stick 4 months ago for the same result and never appreciated that negative the way I do today.

Dr thinks I can somehow do another cycle before the lab closes and moves at the end of July. We’ll see what the IVF nurse says in the next couple of days.

  1. Thank God! It seems weird to say “congratulations” for a negative, but I know in this situation that’s the outcome you wanted. Maybe we’ll both be cycling at the same time in July…

  2. I am glad this is finally over for you. I am also glad you get to cycle again before the clinic shuts down. Now let’s hope your body plays nice and does what it’s supposed to do.

  3. I’m glad it’s not dragging on any longer Mrs. Hope. *hugs*
