On another note, I am heading to the Poconos today for a well deserved "Girls' Week" break. My dh is staying home and will be a single dad to our 3 cats and 2 dogs. Unfortunately, her has exhausted a lot of his leave and will need to save some for the upcoming cycle. He is awesome and totally understands that I need this and is happy that I am able to get away from it all. I love him!

I've had some issues with getting to my blog to post so please forgive me for being gone for almost a week. I am negative! I think this may be the first time in my life where "being negative" is a positive thing. As of this past Friday, my hcg is finally below 5...negative. It seems a little strange to celebrate being "not pregnant" but in this particular case, it means moving closer to our first IVF cycle. We've mourned our third loss, one through a natural miscarriage and two ectopics, and now we are ready to move on to our next step in this process know as IF. As for now, we are in our holding pattern waiting for AF to arrive so that we can begin our IVF cycle. Although, as of Friday, we are now slightly closer to coming in for a landing.
