It's heeeeerrrreeeeeee!!!!!! Cycle day 1 is TODAY!!!
I was scared because I was sure she wasn't coming. I was stupid enough to go ahead and book a sub for this afternoon because I was certain she would be here. I woke up this morning and she was a no show. I spent the morning worried that I would have to cancel my 1/2 day at work. AF showed up just in the nick of time, so I was able to go ahead and book my afternoon appointment with the RE for my baseline stuff. I was SO HAPPY to see my awesome Aunt Flo!!! Ok, now that you're here Dear Aunt, don't come back for at least 9 more months.
Baseline U/S showed two ovaries in resting state and a thin lining. The nurse said everything looks perfect. I had my blood draw and she went over the directions for menopur, which I start Saturday. I am on 225.
Results from CD 1 bloodwork are Estrogen = 18 LH = O.63
Don't really know what that means, but the nurse said those numbers are fine and she says I can take 5 mm of Lupron tonight instead of 10. So we're slowly weening out the Lupron and going to start kicking up the stims.
Next appointment is Wednesday afternoon for another ultrasound and more bloodwork. I hope to see some little follie buds popping up on the next ultrasound.
Also, I wanted to let you know about something cool going on down at Kim's blog. She is doing a sock exchange. I hopped on board and if you'd like to too, stop on by her place. I figure I could use some special socks to help with all of this IVF stuff.
