Things are coming along nicely. I made another trip into the RE Monday. That's the third trip into Chicago in two weeks, 3-4 hours of driving each time! I must admit though, besides the occasional heavy traffic I do enjoy the solitude of being in the car all by myself. ;) The appointment was for bloodwork and u/s. They were monitoring to make sure I am suppressed after being on 10u Lupron for the last 10 days. I stopped BCP on Wed and started my second AF for this month on Friday, gotta love being synced and having two cycles in a months time! Everything looked good on u/s and the b/w numbers indicated that I have not ovulated so we are right on track. My instructions were to decrease Lupron to 5u daily and begin 2mg Estrace 3x daily and continue 81mg baby aspirin and prenatals. Next visit will be in 10 days to do a lining check (Aug 5). Hoping we have a nice fluffy triple stripe lining for some lucky lil embies to snuggle into.
I was able to have breakfast with IM, it was soooooo nice to see her. It was great to catch up and chat about family and how this summer has been treating us both. She and IF are off for an annual vacation next week and when they get back....it's baby mak'n time.
Dates are still the same, retrieval is planned for August 10-12 depending on when they have RE recommends trigger, then transfer 5 days later August 15-17th. It's getting close, less than 20 days away!
