I cannot believe how quickly we are able to do IVF. I really thought that I would have to wait for something. But no! We suppress this month, and start hormones next month. I cannot believe it. I guess it pays to go back to a physician who already knows you.
I made an appointment for my pap, and both of us need to get our bloodwork done, but that is about all that needs to be done before we start. I actually do have questions about who will order meds, (the Wizard or the Apprentice)? My FIL said he would pay for it, but I am not sure how it will work. I may need to call the Wizard's office and ask some questions. Fortunately, these are things that the secretary should be able to answer. I can provide FIL with estimates from the office, and info on shared risk vs one cycle. But I am not sure how he wants handle things. Hopefully Hubby will give him what info we have, and we can go from there.
I moved my vacation back to April 19-25. That is the week of retrieval and transfer, and it seems like a good idea to be off that entire week. It is right after my birthday. I am sort of hoping for a wonderful birthday present, but we will see. It may not take the first time, and we may have to do it again in the fall. Though with around a 60% chance of success, I think I can actually hope for success this time. (That is 4x the chance of success as an IUI.)
I am nervous about it, but I think that being nervous is normal. Especially since IVF is a new experience for me. The Wizard said that I would likely be at a low level of OHSS during stimulation. I have already experienced this, sort of. I think it will be worse with the IVF, though. Egg production for IVF is higher than for an IUI. I have faith in him, though. He has been doing this a long time, and he knows what he is talking about.
