It was negative again. :(
I should have taken the result from last week and moved on.
Why that didn’t happen, you may ask? Well, I told H about it, and he was like, “Where did you buy that test” (ebay) ” — and you trust it?!” (well, yes…) and he convinced me to keep up the progesterone. (I probably wasn’t too hard to convince.)
Why I don’t bleed through the progesterone, no idea. Maybe the dose is too high for me? Maybe my body just reacts in a weird way? I’ll ask my doc. But, as I realized yesterday, my stock of cheapies is “best before” the end of the year. So I can use them up by testing at the end of each 2ww without regrets.
Next week I’m off to a conference, and I’ll have all the coffee I need (how does anyone get through a week-long conference without coffee?) and all the alcohol I like. Which usually isn’t much as I get hungover much too easily. But I’ll enjoy it and forget about tcc for a little while. And then back to the doc, to see what she says, if we do more tests and what kind. (Don’t you see me forgetting about tcc already?)

boohoo on the negative :o( i’m sorry. you’re gonna get that positive one of these days (pulling hard for this happening on the soonISH side!!). sending you hugs. now, go drink up!!
Crap. I’m sorry.
Oh, I’m so sorry. RATS.
I’m glad you’ve got some distracting stuff coming up. I go to a fair number of conferences, and can’t drink coffee except first thing because it makes me VERY ANXIOUS, so I end up propping my eyes open with toothpicks…
So sorry for the BFN. Glad you have some distractions coming up. I kind of agree on coffee at the conferece, but the coffee is usually so bad, I give up. Hope you have some fun.
Oh I’m so sorry, its just absolutely unfair.
As for the progesterone.. I never bleed in the 2ww while on it either. Its not till a few days after coming off it that I start bleeding, so I think it is quite common for it to suppress the natural cycle like that. Does not make things any easier I know, it just sucks. xx
Thanks, egghunt — my doc said that I should bleed “eventually”, but after 3 weeks, my patience has run out. Good to know that my body isn’t the only one reacting this way.
Darn:( I was really hoping. I’ve heard of people not getting CD1 until they stop the Progesterone but (obviously) I was hoping it was staying at bay for other, much nicer reasons.
The conference sounds good. Well, more specifically, the coffee and drinks sound good. Enjoy them (though, yeah, I feel you on the unlikelihood of being able to forget about ttc…ha!:).
I get hungover way to easily too. We’re going on a float trip in a couple weeks, during my ovulation time so I’m actually NOT looking forward to it…no drinking, sneaking in some baby making and dealing with drunkos-doesn’t that sound like a good time to everyone? Sorry about the negative but have fun at your conference.
