Starting NEXT week (for real)

OK, new plan! Because my Dr. is going to be in China giving a talk the last week of Nov. (the nerve!) we are going to delay the start of my cycle by a week. He gave me the option of starting this week and having the other Dr. do the ER and ET but I really want my Dr. to do it, and at this point what's another week? Plus then ER/ET will be the first week of Dec. rather than Thanksgiving week, works better for everyone. So here's the tentative plan:

Tues 11/10- I start Lupron
Wed 11/11- donor starts Lupron
Wed 11/18- I start Estrace
Sat 11/21 donor starts stims
First week Dec. ER
12/6 ~ 12/8 ET

I think its a great idea to wait for your doc & feel comfortable with the entire procedure most of all.

Well I'm bummed we won't be cycling exactly together but I totally understand wanting to wait for your doctor. So you'll be one week behind me but we can still "wait" together. I started my Lupron tonight....wasn't nearly as bad as the other stuff I took when I was trying IVF with my own eggs.

Yeah, we'll still be pretty close...glad the lupron went well. As far as administering I think it's easiest, but as far as se's I find it the worst! What's the rest of your protocol?

Thanks, everyone...I just got my meds. For some reason I thought it would be a lot less than regular IVF but nope, it's still a ton.

I am on Lupron until the ER.
Estrace 3x/day starting after my baseline u/s (11/12)
Baby aspirin 1x/day starting after baseline
Prenatal 1x/day starting after baseline
Then Crinone after ER in place of Lupron.
I think Medrol is somewhere in there too but not sure where....

Is this close to your protocol?

I'm also doing acupuncture. Are you?

Yes, Lupron, Estrace than PIO and Crinone after ET. Medrol is used just before transfer to help implantation. I'll be on it too, and doxycycline just before.

Hey Amber, good news!! I think it's a smart decision to wait for your doc....you're right, it is just a week and if you feel more comfortable w/ him, since he knows your case/history, I'd have made the same decision, too. I'm HOPING to have good news to post later and I'm HOPING that you'll be about 1 week or so ahead of me!
