You know are dedicated to your RE when...

You drive over two hours through the snow to make an appointment. Yes, we drove over 2 hours through falling snow to get to our IVF consult appointment so that we could sign a stack of papers. That is dedication, people! Poor Dr Wizard was without a secretary. The secretary could not leave her house because of the snow. But the Wizard was there! Rain or snow will not prevent him from doing IVF! (What I thought was really amusing was that the cardiologist office next door to the RE's office was closed for the weather. Who is the more dedicated doc?)

It was a very easy appointment. He reviewed some info with us, and then asked us when we wanted to do the IVF. I wanted to to be as soon as possible, please. No problem! We walked out of that appointment with our timeline.

Here is what it looks like: (Sort of.) The Apprentice is doing most of the monitoring, so much of this will occur in the 'Noke.

Around March 16, we start suppression. (Yes I know it is 2 weeks away. Can I just say I am really excited?)
April 2, start Lupron
Stop BCPs on April 5
Period should arrive April 9. (Need a Baseline ultrasound to make sure there are no cysts.)
Start FSH April 10.
2nd ultrasound and estradiol levels on April 15
Estimated week of transfer, April 19

I was amazed how easy it all was. (Once we got there!) I still have a few things to do before we start the IVF part. Mostly bloodwork and a PAP. I just need to call the Apprentice and get that taken care of. I do not think it will be a problem.

And just when you think I fogot LOL Monday...
