Is Nothing Something?

My post title may be confusing but it should be! I had my sonohysterogram today (yeah, that was crampy and uncomfortable!) and everything looked clear and perfect. Of course this is good news! I have a history of fibroids and would not have wanted to go through their removal again. But, at the same time, it would have been a possible explanation as to why the last three embryo transfers did not work.
So, we will continue on. In another three weeks or so, we will have our last attempt with our fourth frozen embryo transfer. The only things I will do differently is eating more red meat and starting my prenatal vitamins earlier. I really don't think there is a lot one can do to increase the chances. I eat healthy (most of the time) and walk regularly for exercise. I am normal weight for my height.
I am feeling positive and that is all I can do. My husband and I are looking for closure, either way. We have been at this since October of 2012 and we are tired. This is hard on a relationship and it has been hard on my body, physically and emotionally. We look forward to being pregnant and at the same time, we look forward to moving on with our wonderful daughter.

Looking Forward

I have been having such bad cramping for weeks now and and finally "it" came. I have my sonohysterogram on Monday and I am a little anxious about it. I have a history of uterine fibroids and polyps and have had major surgery for this. Because I have had such ongoing cramping and fullness feeling, I am worried. They can come back, even when not invited.
I am trying to stay focused on other things now. Just got back from a work trip to Miami, which was fun and now focusing on getting through the next few days until the appointment. I am going to try to focus on the good things in life.

Roller Coaster

My poor, poor body! It is a few weeks past my last failed frozen embryo transfer and in the past, my body would have straightened itself out by now. Not this time! I had a good week last week but now I am crampy and a little crabby. I have no idea where I am in my cycle which is always interesting. I don't know if I am going through this because I used progesterone injections for most of the last cycle (for the first time) or what, but this simply sucks!
I am hoping that my next try in September will be better, and of course give me that POSITIVE I've been waiting for.
Now, get me off of this roller coaster...
