The Countdown Begins...

I'm in the final week of my last "natural" cycle, before starting my first IUI cycle! I'm at CD 24, so probably will get AF by the end of the week. I was holding on to a little bit of hope that I may have miraculously become pregnant this month, but my temperature dropped today so all signs point to "no".

In other news, a dear friend who conceived through IVF gave birth to her son on Friday, 5 weeks premature. Both are doing fine, though he will probably be in the NICU for a few days until he is 35 weeks. He was nearly 6 pounds at birth, though, and is breathing and eating well. Visiting her and the baby gives me hope that a miracle can happen for me too.
