blessed - So happy to hear you finally got AF. Hooray!
sunshine and stars - (((hugs))) I am so, so sorry for your horrible news. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Ninde - Thinking of you and hoping that you will have a new plan soon. I think you are most welcome on this board, even if you don't know when you'll start another cycle. I completely understand… the mourning after a miscarriage is very much about all of the hopes and dreams you have for your LO, often moreso than the physical loss itself - I think after waiting so long to become pregnant there is so much tied up in just the idea and the dream of the child. I hope you have brighter days ahead in the very near future.
We - Thinking of you today and looking forward to some wonderful news!
Leora - To answer your question from a while back, I won't be going with DH for his trip, unfortunately. It looks like I am going to have to master Cetrotide on my own this time around! I hope you are having a wonderful time with your family.
I went to the clinic to get a bunch of blood drawn today (9 tubes…fun!) because it has been well over a year since I did all of that good stuff initially and it needs to be updated before this next IVF (CBC, HIV test, Rubella & CMV titers, bleeding time test, electrolytes, TSH etc…all the usual). While I was there I picked up and filled most of my prescriptions. It was nice to do something concrete to feel like I am moving forward.
I did notice that my new RE prescribed a lower dose of progesterone than what I was on for past IVFs and I also noticed that he did not prescribe estrogen for the luteal phase. My previous clinic would prescribe estrogen for the luteal phase regardless of whether it was a fresh or frozen transfer, so I guess this just must be a difference in practice. Also, I noticed he only prescribed a 1/2 dose of the amount of hcg I usually use to trigger. Now I guess I have a few questions for him. I just want to make sure we do everything to ensure that I have enough embryos to make it to a blastocyst transfer and to give me enough luteal support.
