So in addition to AF being later than usual she's been REALLY heavy. Like going through a pad every 2 hrs or so and passing clots and whatnot. So after a few days of this I emailed my clinic. They called me and said they wanted to see me first thing this morning. I didn't want to go because it had slowed down a lot last night and seemed to have stopped all together this morning. i had to get up at 545 to get there on time and its 1.5 hrs of driving and taking time off work so overall a pain, but I am glad I went.
They went on about how they were worried it might be a polyp or something but since the bleeding had stopped and I had recent ultrasounds they wouldn't do another but to call back immediately if it started again or if I had pain. They also took all my vitals again and according to their scale I've lost 11 lbs since my methotrexate shot. But their scale had me heavier at both instances fully clothed and after eating. But yay 11 lbs!
While I was there I asked to go over my next IVF to see if my dates synced up. And guess what?!
THEY DO!!!! As long as my period starts by September 1st (or around there he didn't give me an absolute he just said we could use my September 1st period) I can cycle in Sept/Oct uptime! Yay!!!! Since I will be at Disney the week of the 19th I asked if AF arrived that THursday or Friday if I came in Monday would that be okay and she said yes, so I don't think AF should arrive any earlier than that, more than likely she will arrive the last week in August, but we all know how fickle AF can be so I hope she cooperates.
The RE also reviewed my plan and they have me not using bcps and starting at a lower stim dose(low and long). He agreed with the no bcps but thought I should start at a 'normal' stim dose (225 not 150) so not sure about that but I trust him. So now I have to call the financial people so I can requalify for IVF. My last approval was only good for a year. I dont think I will have an issue re-qualifying.
Luckily I am having a 'let's get this party started' day and not an 'i dont want to do IVF again day' So now I'm really happy. Oh I also mentioned DH stopped smoking and stopped a med so hopefully he will have a better sperm count now so we may not have to use DS. So when I call when my period starts I will need to do baseline bloodwork and ultrasound and DH can set up an SA to freeze. I mentioned how they froze ONE sperm last time and she said you can have them call you before they freeze next time so we are going to do that. I hope and pray he has sperm so we dont have to use a donor again.
So excited!!!! *happy dance*
