Return to the clinic for blood work and ultrasound! looks like all is good we are continuing to move forward!

Study drug: 12ug
Ganirelix 250mcg in the thigh

I have to say this whole journey of not knowing anything, not being able to see the ultrasound screen or know blood work results have been surprisingly calming, comforting much less stressful than our previous cycle. Where I knew everything as it was happening in real time, I would receive our blood results and research every number and find what each one meant, and to say that drives you crazy is an understatement. This study so far has taught me how much your mind, body, and soul play SO much a part in your well being.  If you have made it this far comment with an emoji that reminds you of hope!

Preparing for Egg Retrieval!

We will be doing a Lupron trigger tonight!

EEEK so exciting and cannot wait for our babies to start growing!
We will do a FET ( frozen transfer) Since my estrogen level raised above 3000.
My body will go into withdrawal mode after the retrieval and I should start my period a few days after that. Once I start I will call the clinic and let them know, I’ll go in for evaluation and we will start preparing for our transfer!

As always thank you, EVERYONE, for your love and support as we go through this journey!
