The time has come. My ovaries, apparently, are ready to get this show on the road. LH surge showed up today on the OPK. Cycle day 11. I have never been this early, that I know of. As I mentioned, my box of goodies will be here tomorrow and I will start taking estrogen next Tuesday to start the suppression part of the program. The next week, on the 20th, I will go for my suppression check and bloodwork and also get detailed instructions about what to do with the box of goodies. If all goes well and my ovaries are still being cooperative, and I look properly suppressed, then the stimulation phase will start on the 21st. Retrieval and transfer could be as early as the first week in October. That's a month from now, for those of you keeping track for the home version. Wow. When did time start moving so fast?
Don't forget to vote for my IVF theme name! I'm going to need it sooner rather than later!
