Today I received the email I have been waiting for! It outlines our timeline from now until transfer! It's very exciting and very real!
I won't bore you with all of the nitty gritty details but some of the basics look like this:
2/5- Start Lupron Injections
2/9- Stop Birth Control Pills
2/15- Bloodwork and Ultrasound
2/16- Start Estrace and Aspirin
3/1- Bloodwork and Ultrasound
Day before egg retrieval (anticipated March 14-18)- Stop Lupron, Start Progesterone Injections
Next Day: Start Prometrium, Prednisone and Doxycycline
3-5 days later: Transfer those beautiful embryos!!!
Dang, that's a lot of meds, right???? :) I am actually feeling quite calm and positive about everything. I thought I might freak out a little when I got all of this information, but I feel good! Everything is progressing just as it should and we are on our way now to a beautiful, healthy pregnancy!
I am so excited for George and Farid right now, I can hardly contain myself! I know that for them, transfer probably still seems a ways away, but things are happening now!! It won't be long now, boys....it won't be long! :)
I will let you know how Lupron's treatin' me soon!!
