So I went in to the RE's office this morning to have them draw blood to test for everything under the sun - from STDs, to Rubella and chicken pox, to a huge panel of tests for clotting disorders.

I think that if AF comes while I'm in Philly, and I am not back in LA before CD4 or 5, then we'll just skip July for the IUI and wait until next cycle.

The stress of finding a clinic and all that stuff and seeing someone I've never met before is too much. I don't know how many IUI cycles we will do, so I want this to go as well and smoothly and stress free as possible!


Julia - I got AF on June 3rd. My cycles run anywhere from 28-31 days. Since this is my first cycle post D&C, I have no idea what will happen next cycle. But if it's a 28 day cycle, I'll get AF on July 1, just when we get Philly. We don't get back until July 5th (at night), so I can't get in to the RE until July 6th. We're ok if my cycle runs a little longer, but otherwise, I think I'll just wait....

I vote no, Kelly...really - I just think you'd be putting too much on yourself at one time. There is no immediate rush. No reason you have to jump through hoops of fire to get it done THIS cycle. Every TTC woman has a voice of reason and a voice of anxiety to get pg ASAP. That is the woman that medicates against dr's advice, lies to get more follicle checks etc hey, nice to meet you :) Listen to your voice of reason.
