Thanks everyone for your support and well wishes! I just heard from the nurse and we are starting next week! AHHH! I have an appointment on the 3rd for bloodwork and ultrasound and then the donor will go in the next day. I'm not really sure what will happen from there, I guess we'll find out more next week. Meds are being ordered today.

Hey Amber, I havent' checked the boards for a few days, so I missed your post! You must be so excited, I am very happy for you that you are finally moving forward! Have they given you tentative ER/ET dates yet? It sounds like you'll be about a month ahead of me....hopefully you will bring us both some much deserved luck!!

YES! it's very annoying when they don't call. I just wonder how busy they actually are if they can't return a simple call! I need a job like that..must make the day fly by! ha-ha!

So happy to hear things are finally moving for you. Hopefully I'll be moving soon and we can share the aggravation (and eventual elation) together. :)

Isn't it so annoying when they don't call when they are supposed to? They KNOW we are just sitting by the phone waiting! Well at least your donor is on the BCP already- that's great. I have been on BCP for about 4 months and I am guessing my donor was also and that's why we're able to start so quickly.
