Let the Games Begin!

FINALLY! The ball is starting to roll...We have our tentative calendar and we've already started our first round of meds.

The master plan as of today is to begin checking for ovulation. Ten days after my surge I start taking estradiol and add in cetrotide -- this is the estrogen priming part of the protocol. Then (hopefully), I'll get my period within a few days of that and I'll do my baseline ultrasound here, at home, on CD 3 and then my first monitoring ultrasound will also be done here. After that, on January 12th, I'll be in Denver for the rest of my cycle!

I'm so excited, but yet so stressed!! I have a million questions that I've been piling up to ask Dr. S and luckily, we have a follow-up with him on Wed, so I'll get to ask him all my questions and hopefully, get some answers. In the meantime, I've been emailing my nurse everyday. I'm sure she loves me...

Okay my use of run-on sentences is atrocious. I'll try again.

You rock! :) I've been following even though I've been a bad commenter as of late. Looking forward to this cycle especially with how the state-hopping falls into play. Good thing we're having some great weather over here in Denver.

FWIW, I never got into major disagreements with people over the books. That I know of I guess.
