I called and spoke to a nurse today and there will be no need for progesterone! Yaaaaay! If I was right (and my uterus is telling me I am) then I ovulated on Saturday, which means I can expect AF on 12/12. I’ll go in on 12/14 (CD3) for an ultrasound and I was just informed that I’ll start “pills” that day too. I don’t have a Rx for BCPs so I’m guessing that I’ll be taking the Norethindrone pills for 7 days. I won’t actually begin the Lupron until 12/16 (CD5). Two weeks later, 12/31 (CD20), I’ll start Follitism. Timing will work out perfectly, and I can’t imagine a better way to ring in the new year! Well, actually I can think of a better way, but I’ll totally settle for this. 🙂
I hate that I’m always planning everything out to the last detail, but I’m happy that it looks like everything will be fine! Now I can relax for the rest of this break cycle. Less than two weeks and the IVF madness begins!
Another added bonus, I think if everything goes according to plan the ER and ET will end cap a long weekend. It will much easier to take a long weekend off of work (less explaining to do) than to take random days. Whew!
And now for the requisite drugs photo! This does not include the Follistim. I won’t be able to pick it up until I go in for my scan on the 31st. I suppose I also need a sharps container.
