I keep trying to tell myself I cannot let this consume me like it did. And in a sense,… Read More Worries and Fears this time around
Well I am behind on my updates for this cycle but it has been a weird one. So I had my cycle start on the same day as my negative beta but since it was not full blown the doctor wanted to count CD1 as the following day which was April 5th. He changed my meds… Read More CD14 Update

So this morning I went in for my CD12 ultrasound and blood work. They usually start with the right ovary and it wasn’t looking good.
