You know what’s nice? When you are friends with your fertility nurse coordinator.
I was telling Jordan about my frustration with being on pills still. When I did my mock ET, everything looked fine and I only had one cyst left. I have done another week on the pills since then, so the last cyst should be gone, right? Do I really have to do another week of pills? Can’t we please change my start date to a little sooner?
She said yes.
I imagine this is how a man feels when he proposes and things go in his favor. I have never been happier to hear the word “yes”. This is better than hearing "yes" to the question "Can we please get a puppy?" So we tweaked things and I get to start the medications four days sooner. While this doesn't seem like a big deal to someone not going through an IVF cycle, it is, it totally is. I am four days closer to being done with this process and that is exciting.
So now, my first appointment of my IVF cycle is on Monday, February 4th. I will have blood work and ultrasound that day and if everything looks good (and it better), then I will be able to start the injections on Thursday, February 7th! That’s the day that I would have originally taken my last birth control pill. It really is amazing what four days can do for a person’s mental status. YAY for Jordan!
