Okay, I know I keep posting about this, but now that AF is finally here, I have a better idea of when I'm going to be Oing (even though I don't really expect AF to be quite regular at first).
So I got my AF back this past Friday, and I usually have cycles that are 30-32 days in length, sometimes longer at first after weaning. I figure that I'll probably be Oing at the beginning of the month. Uch, exactly where I DIDN'T want to O! Kelley at HRC told me that when they refer to cycling in such and such month, it means the month you O in, not the month that you start AF in, so I guess Mom2RJ just got lucky when she Oed two days into the next month when they weren't supposed to be MSing anymore but they let her anyway.
I wanted to cycle in March and then again in April if it didn't work, but if I cycle in March, I will only have one fully post-weaning cycle (plan on being done nursing by the end of this year) before I ttc (December to January cycle I will still be BFing during half of it, January to February cycle will be post-weaning, then February to March would be MS/IUI #1). I feel so nervous about that, I feel like it's too soon. Just based solely on years of reading people's stories on this site, it seems like conceiving two and a half months or less after weaning, especially using high-tech, results in a higher than average miscarriage rate. But that's just from reading this site, I don't really know what the actual stats are. Still, it makes me nervous.
Anyway, the alternative is to wait until my March to April cycle to cycle, but then I'd most likely only have one shot at MS/IUI unless/until they get another extension, and who knows, they might and there might be no gap in service at all, or they might just end up waiting until word comes from the FDA and I might not get another shot until 2010. But hey, I could be a OHW, right? And if I'm not, who's to say that twice in a row wouldn't be a wash, right?
Of course, I might not even have a choice, they might be full in March and I might have to wait until April. But in case they're not, I'd like to be firm on what cycles I want before I talk to the scheduling nurse.
So what do you all think I should do?
