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!
