Peace of Mind is All I Want...: Questions

Peace of Mind is All I Want...

Monday, May 07, 2007


I started spotting yesterday - not a big surprise. While I would have been overjoyed to get pregnant this cycle my expectations were that it would be a bust so I'm not terribly disappointed.

Mostly because I have my IVF consult on Thursday. I only have to wake up THREE MORE TIMES! To say that I'm excited would be a huge understatement.

I wish I had a better idea of what to expect. My appointment falls on CD3 - will they do the usual bloodwork/ultrasound? Will I start BCP? Will I have to take a cycle off? I'll be monitored locally but will have to make a few trips to the clinic - how much time should I anticipate needing off? Can I afford to take a few days for a long weekend away with H or should I save those for clinic trips?

I really want a timeline for this stuff. I've been reading a lot about the process but don't know yet where we specifically fit ourselves into that puzzle.

Every clinic is different with how they'll do things, when they'll start you on BCP, how long, how much monitoring etc. With my last cycle, I took BCP for 25 days, a week of which overlapped with lupron, and another week of lupron before starting stims. Then I had either bloodwork, or bloodwork and ultrasound every day starting on day 4. But as you know, I hyperstimulate easily. So you should ask for the protocol information tomorrow, what you can do locally, and that should help get your timeline. Good luck!

I wish I could answer some of those questions for you but I just don't know. The only thing I can suggest is to write down every question you think of and take it with you to the clinic. Wow, only a few more days! Good luck!
