Best Laid Plans

We may be cycling sooner than planned! I found out about a master's program I want to do and DH thinks it's a good idea. I refuse to postpone cycling again so we're thinking about cycling in Feb/early March so I can get my application in if it doesn't work. No decision yet but I hope we'll make one this weekend so I can make plans.

I figure that way the cycle ends in good news, sort of, either way. Either I'm pregnant (Big YEA) or I get to get my master's in ED and start teaching (small Yea). Hopefully having something I'm happy about (school) to focus on if the cycle doesn't work will help me get through a BFN just a little easier. I don't think anything could make it not hurt but I do better when I'm busy and have something to focus on. Plus once I start teaching we'll be able to save that much quicker for adoption.

So basically this time next year, if we go w/ this plan, I'll either be pregnant (fingers crossed) or in school getting certified to teach. I'm definitely hoping it's the former but I feel better already about the possibility of a BFN knowing that I'd have something to fall back on.

I had my hsg today and it went well. Everything looks great and no visible problems.
Also had my lining check and I had a nice thick lining. The nurse wouldn't give me #s but said several times that it was "nice and plump", or "thick".
Hopefully Pati will get in touch tomorrow and give me details.

It was my first experience w/ the wand so that was a little different.

HSG wasn't bad at all. Uncomfortable but not that painful. I'm glad it's over though. I'm crampy now but it's not that bad, no worse than AF.

Two more things off the to do list, I love checking them off!
