Baseline Ultrasound

Yesterday was my baseline ultrasound.  For those of you unfamiliar, this is the start of my IVF cycle.  Basically, they do an internal ultrasound to make sure the BCP did its job in keeping my ovaries quiet and that my endometrial lining is where it should be.  Luckily, everything looked perfect, so that means shit is about to get real!

I will start my medication on Friday, 12/6.  Here is my daily protocol:
-prenatal vitamin
-81mg aspirin
-150 units FSH (Gonal F)
-75 units Menopur

I will go in on 12/10 for my 1st monitoring appointment and bloodwork to make sure my levels are where they should be and that the protocol is working like it should. From there, Dr. R will determine if we need to make any changes.  I am doing an antagonist protocol, so I will be starting Cetrotide at some point in my cycle as well.

My meds shipped out yesterday, and they should be here today.  There were some issues with my Rx, so hopefully I will receive everything I need.  I scheduled an early delivery to give me some time to fix things if there are any problems. Let's hope there are no issues!

More updates to come as things progress :)
