OMG, this last week has been crazy.
Friday night I flew out on a red eye to MD for a friend’s wedding. Got there around 10am, the wedding was at 4. Sunday I drove up to NJ to see some family (namely my Grandma who’s in the hospital 😦 Monday I drove back to MD to fly out to Seattle. Needless to say I didn’t get much sleep!
On my way to the airport, the dentist calls with a cancellation for the next day (Tuesday), 11am. Ok, no prob. While I’m in the airport, I see an Email from my IVF coordinator that my blood tests came back, and everything is good — except that I need to be vaccinated for Rubella! (MMR I suppose, but she just said Rubella) AND! You’re not supposed to TTC for 30 days after the vaccine. Crap! So I frantically make an appointment to get an appointment for the vaccine the next morning… at 8:40am. And keep my fingers crossed that this won’t postpone the cycle.
So I land at 11:15pm, get home around midnight-ish… and get maybe 6 hours of sleep before going in for the vaccine. And then two hours at the dentist. Hooray! Then I come home and decompress for a few hours before going to work. Somewhere in here the IVF coordinator Emails and gives me my schedule! Hooray, we don’t have to be postponed!!
Today, I think I’m at least mostly caught up on sleep, and finally have time to blog my schedule!! In the midst of all this craziness, of course, my period came. So I started Birth Control (BCP) on Sunday. Here’s a brief rundown:
10/30 – last day of BCP
11/1 – Suppression check, paperwork paperwork and more paperwork
11/2 – Start Stims
11/11 – Stop Stims, Trigger shot to get the eggs ready
11/13 – Egg Retrieval
11/16 OR 11/18 – Egg Transfer
So that’s all tentative, and dependent on my body cooperating, but at this point looks like the most likely schedule.
OMG this is actually happening!!
