Shakespeare in the Park, Day 1

AF arrived bright and early Friday morning, so no beach.
I was expecting monster cramps and while they were worse than normal, it wasn't so bad.

My RE hasn't gotten back to me as he's out today, but I talked to a nurse and we agreed that I should come in tomorrow for Day 2 testing of my FSH and E2.  I haven't had it done since March and just want to make sure that all of my levels are checking out OK.  If they are too high, I might as well cancel the cycle.
She also told me I could have a chat with another RE on duty when I came in.  Quite frankly, I am excited to get a second opinion as I feel like I'm at a crossroad and I don't know which way to go.

Last night I met some friends out on the Upper West Side for drinks and tapas before heading off to Central Park's Delacorte Theatre for Shakespeare in the Park.
Oh William!  Why 3.5 hours long??  But, the setting outside was gorgeous as was the play, Hamlet.
It's amazing to be smack dab inside Manhattan but feel like you're in a forest in the country.
These productions are free, but the catch is that you must start standing in line early in the morning (we're talking 6am) to get the free tix.
Luckily, my friend Mme X, apparently knows someone in the Shakespeare mafia who got us tix for $25--a price I will gladly pay to not stand in line!

I hope that all your levels check out okay...

You guys are doing IUIs right?? Have you thought about doing IVF?

Shakespeare in the park sounds wonderful...I'd pay a pretty penny to not have to stand in line either. :)

Hope your levels check out okay...we're sending you balance.
