Finally an update

I should win the lousy blogger of the year award.  As you can see, when I'm not in treatment I really switch it off!  I've been ambivalent about posting about my regular life and things not IF-related.  For now, I'll continue to post about the IF treatment, with some real life updates sprinkled in here and there.  I still don't know if anyone I know in real life reads this.  I'm kind of afraid to find out!

Anyway, things are going pretty well.  August was a stressful month.  My car engine needed replaced, work stress and just general crappiness abounded.  But, things are much better now.  My car is fixed, we just took a great vacation to the Pacific Northwest, and life is calming down a bit.  Work is still stressful but should calm down in the coming weeks. 

Everything is going right on schedule for the FET.  I got all my meds a few days ago (only $70!) and am scheduled to start the Lupron around October 5.  I don't have the date for the transfer yet, but it should be the end of October sometime.  Some things I like about this clinic so far:

- No BCP's!  They just confirm ovulation and then start the Lupron on CD 22
- I'll only be on Lupron for 2 weeks!
- No estrogen patches!
- 50%+ FET success rate!

The thing I don't like is that the transfer will cost $5000, but they have a great success rate so I guess I'll get what I pay for.  I promise I'll start updating more frequently!


  1. Car problems are such a headache, glad your engine is fixed. That must have been a hard diagnosis!
    I am really hopeful for you in this next cycle! Good luck, I hope things go smoothly.

  2. No BCP is great! So glad things are going smooth. I will be checking for your success :-)

  3. Wishing you best of luck with your upcoming cycle!! Keep us updated!
