Hoping and praying that the 3rd times a charm!!! I went into Chicago for a baseline u/s and bloodwork Monday but have to go back tomorrow for a hystrosonogram. I guess the RE was just coming back from being out of town Monday and hadn't reviewed my chart so I'll be making two trips this week. I started a 9 day regimen of BCP to sync cycles on Monday, then Friday I begin Lupron injections...I love doing those...seriously, I'm not being sarcastic. LOL My first monitoring appt will be Monday, July 27th to make sure I'm suppressed and then the estrogen supplement will begin to build up a nice fluffy lining in my uterus with weekly checks until transfer.
As of now the retrieval is planned for sometime between August 10th and 12th (depends on how she responds to meds and when follicles are mature). Then they fertilize the lil eggies, let them grow for 5 days and then transfer them which is tentatively set for the weekend of August 15th. It's baby making time!!
Oh got good news from the IVF coordinator. Turns out the PIO was sent because she thought I had bleeding/spotting after my previous transfers so it was added into the protocol as a precaution in case there was any this time. They were mistaken, I haven't had any bleeding either of the previous times so I likely won't need it at all. Guess it is good to have on hand just in case though but my bum is relieved that it likely won't be needed.
I talked with IM through email the other day, contracts are being drafted and will be ready for signatures in the coming week(s). Gotta get those wrapped up before we transfer but really nothing is changing, so it should be no biggie.
I hope to meet up with IM at my monitoring appointment on the 27th, we haven't seen one another since the last transfer in January. It will be so nice to sit down and chat face to face again, it seem like it's been so long.
That's the latest.
