Officially Not This Month

Wife started spotting this morning. THIS MORNING! So, we went through an entire weekend of waiting, wondering, hoping that maybe this would be our month (my wife normally would've started on Friday, but just to get our hopes up, her P decided to wait until Monday: The shittiest, longest day of the week for my wife who has to work, then go to two grad classes at night) Needless to say, we are disappointed.

I encouraged my wife to check out this site, which has a Java-based dice rolling simulator. She is not a statistics expert, and neither am I, but I understand the principles. Given a 20% chance of success with each try, a success should be achieved once in every 5 tries, on average - thus the assignment by Dr. M to procreate for 5 months before moving on to the next step.

I'm encouraging my wife to try to forget about what we've been through (IVF) and to view this as if we just started trying. Easier said than done, but we need to keep some sanity.

I'm sorry about that.

Maybe you'll beat the stats and get lucky next month! Keep positive.
