New year, same cycle

First off, I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year :) May 2012 be the year of many sticky babies! I've been a bit MIA lately, caught up in the Holidays, followed by our NYE trip to the Happiest place on Earth (which, by the way, was amazing). I have since resumed my daily routine of waking up early to go to work, and temping as well. This is what my chart looks like now...

No O and no sign of AF, but I've had tender breasts the past couple of days, so that may be a sign that she is approaching (or not). Still, I am hopeful for the future. I am (still) waiting on the results of my blood work and ultrasounds (do you think it's time to find a new OB/GYN?), but when the results are in, I'll probably fill the prescription the Doc gave me to force AF to show. Then, it'll be off to the RE. I took some good advice from a fellow bud and found a CBEFM on eBay. I won the item, and it is now on its way. Hopefully this will work out :) I am curious about how a CDEFM works vs. how OPKs work. I am assuming that (due to the price) the CBEFM is more sensitive - one can hope - but to tell you the truth, I don't know much about them. I guess we'll see :) Anyway, I am trying to stay positive despite other not so positive things surrounding me at the moment - which I won't mention here. I am getting a feeling that 2012 might be "it". While we were in WDW, Mr. DBud and I took a friend on "It's a Small World" (she had never been on it before). We were amazed at how many people have thrown coins in the water! Well, Mr. DBud pulled a coin out of his pocket and tells me, "Here's to changing our luck" as he proceeded to toss it in the water beside our little boat. I felt this joy inside me, and couldn't keep a smile off my face. I think this year will be so much better for us... I can feel it :)

Back in the day when I didn't know we would end up at IVF w/ICSI as our only option I did a little research on CBEFM's and it seems that they are able to track your daily results and that they are a bit more accurate. People seemed to really like them and swear by them. I am exciting you got a good deal that makes it all the better!!
I would switch OB/GYN's if you are not feeling like they are on top of or knowledgeable enough of your particular circumstances. You are spending your money to see them and get their advice so if they aren't measuring up to your expectations move on to another. There are lots out there and they are not all the same!!!
Good luck with this next cycle and hopefully you get those bloodwork results soon!! This is going to be a better year!!

Thanks for your continued support. It makes it so my h easier to know I have a group of women who are rooting for me as much as I am rooting for them. I am definitely optimistic this year :)
