I am actually following everyone's advice.
I checked with my RE, and she asked if I wanted to go ahead and stay on the active pills or if I wanted a break from the BCPs for the 4 days. She told me that it would make it easier to synch all of our cycles up if she is able to tell the coordinating nurse that I have been on active pills continually (we have not been given positions in regard to our split yet - we should get that in the next day or 2, I was told). So that is what we're doing.
Thanks E & H and everyone for weighing in!
