It's like déjà vu but new at the same time. Cycling for our upcoming transfer at the end of the April has begun. I started my meds today - VERY EXCITING for all of us! The sub-q Lupron injection is as I remember - simple, painless, easy peasy. I know I've mentioned it before but I actually like doing these shots. We'll see if I'm singing the same tune when I start the intramuscular PIO injections just before transfer (something entirely new for me this time around).
So for the next few days I continue to inject 20u of Lupron daily, a drug that will suppress my natural hormones so that the RE is able to manipulate and time everything. In a little over a week I'll have my first appointments to evaluate if my body is responding properly. If all is on track then they will begin the introduction of estrogen into my system which will help build up the endometrium (uterine lining). I'll continue to update on how my monitoring visits go - keeping fingers crossed for an easy cycle and looking forward to transfer in a few short weeks!!
