First Shot Down

The shots have officially started. I gave myself my first dose of L.upron this morning. Yesterday we got our final calendar and went over consents, meds training, etc. It seems as if I'll be getting my meds as needed--which I am a bit sad about because I wanted to take a picture of all the loot. I also got verification that we will be doing a fresh 5 day transfer. We're doing the cgh testing on day three. So, far I have  no side effects from L.upron (but it's only been a few hours and I'm on my first dose). I've read horror stories on other ladies blogs but I'm really hoping that I'm one of the lucky ones that it doesn't affect much. I go for my next appointment next week--when I will have my baseline ultrasound and our cycle really be underway.

I'm Back..IVF/CGH Prep Underway

I'm back from my holiday and I had a wonderful time! I'm looking forward to relaxing for a few more days, catching up on sleep, and catching up on all of your blogs before returning to work.

Our first (and hopefully only) IVF cycle is currently underway. I'm on day 7 or so of bcp and have my first appt/prep for Lupron appointment on Thursday. Looking forward to it but also extremely nervous. Retrieval is currently scheduled for July 15th and it will be interesting to see if my body sticks to that schedule or not. I believe I start Lupron this weekend--I have to drag out my ivf calendar again. If anyone who has been through ivf has any words of wisdom, I'm all ears.
