Heading to Denver ... tomorrow??

Sorry I haven't been keeping you in the loop. I've been waiting to ovulate before I communicated any plans, as I know that my luteal phase is 14 days, so I would have ample time to share the excitement ... well, here I am on CD38 with no signs of ovulation! And this evening AF showed her ugly face. Usually my cycles are 33 days and I ovulate on CD18, but this cycle was apparently anovulatory. (I thought that with this being the cycle following IVF, I was just experiencing delayed ovulation, but no such luck Polly!)

So I need to be in Colorado for the morning of CD3, which is Wednesday. And I'd like to schedule my 1 day work up on CD5, which is Friday. But it looks like Dr. Schoolcraft has other ladies he's doing the 1 day workup on that day and he doesn't have time for the likes of me! CCRM did say that if another doctor is available and if I'm ok with the choice of doctor, I might be able to switch my doctor and be able to do the 1 day workup on Friday. (I have a wedding to go to on Saturday and I would be very sad if I had to miss it.) If I can't find a worthy and available doctor, then I will have an appointment for a baseline ultrasound on CD5 and will wait until next week to do the 1 day workup with Dr. Schoolcraft.

All this is just too much this evening, I surely wasn't expecting this ... though I am excited and nervous.

I need to look for a flight out tomorrow and I'm pretty sure I'll need to pack a bag ... I can't believe that I'll be a jet setter ... tomorrow! I thought for SURE I would catch my ovulation and have 2 weeks to plan all this. Looks like things don't always go the way you want! Regardless, I'm happy to be going.

Brenda ... looks like I might get to see you in Colorado!! (I'll email you!)


I can't wait to tell you all what an amazing, healing weekend I just had ... I was in the middle of composing that post when AF butted in!


  1. Tell Schoolcraft that we can do a 2 for 1 for the right price. (; I think I could learn more from your questions than my own.

    I'm sorry that things didn't quite work out like you had planned, but I would be thrilled if we get to meet up on Friday!! How crazy that we have to go to another state to finally meet. (:

    Deep breaths as you get everything planned and all packed up to go. I will be thinking of you and can't wait to hear how your weekend went. Many hugs, dear Polly.

  2. Good luck in denver!!!!!! I hear good things about them. ;-)

  3. I hope the trip is good for both you and Brenda. I'm imagining a slumber party type atmosphere where you are gossiping in your PJs about all the folks you know in common IRL and in the blog world as well as all the crazy doctors you had to deal with in Denver. I hope you both get knocked up and have some giggles getting that way. Good luck!!!!

  4. Good luck - wow, its all happening so fast! Your head must be spinning.
    Thanks for the comment re: non-corporate life, I'm truly exhausted by it and figure I can always go back if I miss it. HA!
    And I saw that "So I married an Axe Murder" is one of your favourite movies - I love that film too!! I'm giggling just thinking about it now, the cat thinks I've totally lost the plot!
    Have a great time in Denver, you'll be in my thoughts and prayers.

  5. Polly - I am excited for you! This is positive motion :) How awesome if you get to meet Brenda!!!

    Good luck - I will be here praying!

  6. hi polly, miss you. We should get together sometime.

  7. I'll be praying and thinking of you!!!!!!!


  8. Good luck in Denver -- hope you get to see one of the "good" docs!
