Well... after two IUI tries last summer we knew that this summer would be filled with all things IVF. As it got closer and closer to summer and the scheduling began I began to worry about timing. So I made an appointment with the "Good Doctor". He is our RE and I really like him, which is good because he the only close choice.
It was good I made an appointment when I did because as it turns out we are late on the draw. I barely was able to get things rolling in time to be done before school starts in the fall. I think that my emotional response to the fact that implantation wouldn't happen until the first week in August, the week we return to work, helped me out a little bit in getting the ball rolling.
So far here is what I know:
-Started the Clomid challenge test. I desperately wanted to avoid being on any fertility drugs while teaching. I know how I do on them and it really isn't pretty for anyone. Hopefully my kids are angels for the next couple of days or their teacher could be a crying monster. Yikes!
-On Tuesday I'll go in and have bloodwork to see how my body reacted to the Clomid.
-On Wednesday I will have the trial transfer. I'm not sure what to expect from this but I need to have a full bladder when I arrive, which shouldn't be any fun.
We are going to try an IUI with the Clomid and maybe we won't have to go through with the IVF.
I'm feeling a little in the dark. The planning appointment didn't go like I had thought. I expected to be there for 30 minutes and just made appointments to start everything but not actually start. I didn't have P with me because I didn't think it would be that big of a deal. Boy was I wrong. I also wasn't totally concentrated on what the doctor was saying because I had made a vet appointment for that afternoon and it because obvious I was going to miss it. I've never missed any kind of appointment in my life and I was feeling kind of frantic. So I think May I'll be on birth control and I'm hoping I won't start meds until June and then the actual transfer will happen in July.
