It’s official…we have actual dates!!! Here is what our IVF schedule looks like:
11/4-11/22: Take Birth Control Pills
11/27: Appt for ultrasound, lab, consent, & stimulation instructions
11/27: Based on lab results…possibly start stim medication tonight
12/1: Appt for ultrasound & lab to check progress
12/3: Appt for ultrasound & lab to check progress
12/6: Appt for ultrasound & lab to check progress
12/8: ER (egg retrieval) & Fertilization of eggs
12/8 – 12/9: Bedrest for 24 hours
12/8-12/12: Eggs fertilize and grow, hopefully resulting in a few healthy blastocysts
12/13: Day 5 ET (embryo transfer)
12/13-12/15: Bedrest for 48 hours
Then we will come in between 10-14 days after ET to do beta blood testing. Hopefully this will show HCG, the pregancy hormone in my blood and result in a beautiful, healthy baby!!! What an awesome Christmas miracle this would be!!!
It feels so good to officially have dates to obsess over. This is either going to be the quickest month ever or the slowest month ever. But either way…we are officially starting 🙂 Eeekkkk…say some prayers for us!
