I thought I'd start a thread for my IVF updates.  It's as much for my personal record as for anyone else, so feel free to ignore it. :smileyhappy: 

Today  (8/20) I started 10 units of Lupron.  Shot went smoothly, wasn't a big deal after all the IUIs I've done. I'm feeling some twinges/pulling on my left side, hoping it's not my ovary trying to O. I'm on BCP for another 4 days, so surely it's prevented O.  I guess we'll see!

Well, I'm out until further notice. Apparently my OB did NOT get the endometriomas on my L and R ovaries when he removed a large mass in July, and I can't proceed until they're removed. The RE and I thought he had removed them, in the operative report he indicated he had. We discovered them at my baseline this morning. I haven't talked to the RE yet, I've been talking to the IVF coordinator. The RE is going to call me over the weekend to make a plan, I'm planning on asking her to do the surgery herself, even though she's out of network for my insurance. I should have had her do the original surgery and am kicking myself right now. Overall, it's been a rotten day. :smileysad:

Those PIO shots can be a doozy, but you will breeze right through that! AF just came to visit me this morning after being over three weeks late and horrible PMS forever! I will send her your way!!!

Lupron is going well, the shots are no biggie. I'm not looking forward to the PIO with the big needles. :smileyfrustrated:

I took my last BCP this morning, so I'm on AF watch. I have my baseline u/s on 8/30, so just 6 more days. I'm ready to get the stims underway.

I have purse size organizers with all my IVF info in them. I still love looking back at them. :smileyhappy:

Sounds like your ovaries are gearing up and getting ready for what they need to do!!!
