AF Update (tmi post)

Okay, I am getting irritated. Still no AF! I am three days "late" and this is highly unusual for me. I called CCRM and the nurse wants me to get my progesterone and LH hormone levels checked to see if I have ovulated this month. By doing this we can better estimate when AF will arrive and then re-schedule my one day work-up at CCRM since I need to go there between cycle days 5-13. I haved left voice mails for the nurse at my local RE and for the nurse at my primary doctor to see if they can run these labs and how quickly I can get my results. I am supposed to call CCRM back once I get my results.

In addition to no AF, I have been getting more and more CM. I have had it every day since New Years Eve, but today there is WAY more of it than in days past. The nurse at CCRM said that it is because I am having a change in my hormones. She thought that maybe I am just ovulating now, but I explained that I have had CM for the last six days (you don't typically ovulate for that one, usually only 1-2 days). She also said that it is possible after a failed IVF cycle to have a delayed menstrual cycle. I just think it is weird that I had my last BFN on 12/1, AF arrived on 12/5, and now I am late for my second post-BFN cycle AF.

Hopefully I will be able to get my blood drawn tomorrow to check my hormone levels and get some answers. Besides the CM I have had a mild stomachache since yesterday. It doesn't hurt that bad, more annoying than anything. I wish AF would hurry up and get here as I am totally stressing myself out about this.

Kris, I know it's probably not what you want to hear, but have you tested? I'm sure you don't want to, but you said you've always been regular and now you're late. You have a lot of CM and a tummy ache. Just a thought. I'd love for AF to stay away for a long time, but if it's bfn af better show her ugly face soon!
