Yep, we're moving on. On to bigger and better things. I'm excited and absolutely terrified. My stomach starts hurting just thinking about it.
After over 2 years, 1 miscarriage, 9 medicated cycles, 3 IUI's, 1 canceled IUI, and 4 months of injections, we're on our way! I can't believe all the heartache and stress that has come with this journey. I'm praying it has a happy ending very soon.
We are switching doctors for the IVF. My doctor was about $4,000 more expensive than the one we're going to now. The new RE's success rates are just as high. At our IVF consult on Wednesday, the doctor gave us a 60+% chance of success with the first transfer. That's pretty exciting!
He went over all of our testing and history and agreed that there was nothing wrong.... so we're still unexplained. I will start the cycle in about 3 weeks, which is the beginning of October where I'll take birth control pills and lupron injections for about 3 weeks. Then, I'll move on to about 2 weeks of follicle stimulating hormone injections (FSH) like gonal-f. Retrieval should be the first week of November and transfer about 5 days after that.
I think we've decided to transfer two embryos, if we have two to choose from. I'm praying for plenty of embryos that fertilize beautifully. I get so excited of the thought of having embryos to freeze that will be waiting for us!! This is so scary, and new, and exciting. I'll keep you guys updated : )
