Day 1 - Take 2

It's Day 1 for me again and although AF showed up, I'm not surprised nor am I sad. I'm actually relieved because we can get this show on the road.

I realized it's going to be a bit more complicated this time around because we're going out of the Big-K network and so, blood tests and prescriptions won't be as easy to fill. I also have a lot more doctor's appointments because Dr. Zed is a lot more thorough (maybe also known as being anal). He's having me do an immunology panel with testing for certain antibodies and MTHFR, and a consultation with a genetic counselor. I also have to get my primary care doc to sign-off on a health form and get a recent pap smear.

Tomorrow is my ultrasound and antral follicle count, so wish me luck! It'll be my first time going to his office, so I'm hoping that I like the staff. So far, things have seemed pretty good. They're very responsive and friendly.

Venting Vagina and Sienna from It's Baby Time will also be doing their IVFs in June, so please, please send out good vibes to all of us. Ladies, I'm counting on some BFPs from our group!!

Glad to hear you're getting things started! I'll be right behind you in about a week will start bcp's for 2 weeks & ER will probably be the 1st or 2nd week in June

yay for AF! isn't it weird how sometimes we actually want her to show up? :)

good luck tomorrow! i hope you like the staff!

oh, and thanks for the shout out! this will be it for all three of us! when we're all preggers, you *have* to come visit us! my timing might be closer to sienna's too -- depending when my next AF shows up. i have to do a medicated FET so i need 4-5 weeks of lupron to suppress before we can even think about a transfer. sigh.

Sending you good luck! It may be more of a hassle, but it sounds like he is collecting more information that could ultimately be helpful! Good luck.

Hey there. Good luck to you. A new Dr. to me is like a fresh start, sometimes much needed. Good luck also on your AFC!!!!! Looking forward to updates!
