Today, April 17th, marks exactly one year of the anniversary of my very first IVF retrieval. This is the cycle I conceived by A.R.T. my daughter. Today, I start the last part of my protocol for this, my fifth and final own egg IVF cycle !
I went in for monitoring this morning and then went for blood work. Everything is moving along and they expect to see follicular growth when I return on Monday, as I just started the Follistim and will start the Menopur (37.5 units) tonight. They are hoping for a slow and steady growth over the next week and anticipate my retrieval being next Friday or Saturday.
With the new meds/protocol, I am extremely tired and very cranky ! Yesterday was the last Delestrogen injection I had to do until after stims so hopefully that helps ! 🙂
In the morning, I am driving to North Carolina to meet my sister to take my niece and nephew home. I should be able to get a little rest next week since my day will not begin with chasing and fighting with a cute two year old. She is definitely preparing me for what is to come ! lol.
Have a great weekend everyone !
