I called today to state that my new cycle has yet to start. No I am not pregnant.
I found out again from talking to Sarah at PNW that it will take them 3-4 weeks to make the embryos. Wait what?
Why does it take 3-4 weeks to make embryos? We aren't doing a fresh cycle. As far as I know it might take about a week to make the embryo and maybe another week to get it to blast stage. 3-4 weeks sounds mighty long.
So they aren't worried that my period hasn't started. I won't worry either. It will get here when it gets here. If it hasn't started by CD 40 I'll call my local clinic to get provera. Today is only CD 27.
Hmm...so maybe end of May/early June for the FET? Oh who knows! So my spouse and I were either mislead or confused when they told us 4-6 weeks from the time my period starts to the day of transfer at the three hour appointment. Most likely we just got confused.
Mind you this is my very first free-hand, my own drawing, and without an art course watercolor. I think I did this one back in 2001.
The next watercolor I did and will put up here is one that I painted when I was dating J, my wonderful husband. As you can see the colors are lighter. Again I have had no formal art training or drawing. So I'm warning you I'm not very good.
I was drawing, then painting this while sitting on J's grandmother's front porch in Lake Luzerne New York. Looking out onto her garden and paved walkway. J loves to remind me that my perspective is off, and yes it is. After that I shut down painting thinking I would never be good enough to even make him happy. Well painting makes me happy so that is what matters and I bought a small ruler to keep in my paint box to try to keep things more level.
I signed my last name on one of the logs in the pile in the painting. I'm sure you can see it.
Maybe to keep myself relaxed while I wait for this cycle to start I'll do some painting? I can't promise myself I will as life's little household tasks always seem to intrude upon my personal time.
I prefer to use Winsor and Newton but that is just me.
