October 22nd: Start Marvelon Birth Control Pill (Is it just me or does this brand sound extremely archaic? It sounds like something my Grandmother would have taken seventy years ago)
November 2nd: Injection Instruction Visit with a Nurse (Let the fun times begin!)
Somewhere between November 2nd and November 11th: Begin Suprefact Injections (Hello suppression!)
November 11th: Stop Marvelon
November 18th: Bloodwork (and so the frequent monitoring appointments (bloodwork and ultrasounds) begin)
Somewhere between November 11th and November 18th: Start Puregon Injections (Hello stimulants!) and continue Surprefact (more needles, how lovely!)
Week of November 29th: Egg Retrieval (36 hours prior will be given the trigger shot by nurse Andrew, aka my Husband)
3 - 5 days after Egg Retrieval: Embryo Transfer
2 weeks later and it will either be my birthday or Christmas... let's hope it is a time to celebrate!
So there you have it, our life for the next two months. Let the good times roll..
|Let's hope we look this happy come December! Taking on a hike in Whistler in July.|
