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

Yesterday was last day on BCP. Still taking the Lupron and baseline u/s is Wednesday. Did I tell you our ER date got pushed back a week? So we'll probably be on the same schedule after all. I'm getting very excited! How are you doing?
