IVF Week 2 (Take 2)

I went to the Doctor yesterday and I have lots of follies again and my estrogen level is much lower than it was last month which is a plus! I was only on 100u of Follistim and 5u of Lupron. The nurse called me yesterday evening and my Dr. has dropped me down to 25u of Follistim for Tuesday and Wednesday and will most probably bump me up again on Thursday just to keep my levels in check. We are looking at a retrieval date around the beginning of next week which is my birthday so hopefully it will bring me good luck. I go back to the Dr. tomorrow for another ultrasound and blood work so fingers crossed and praying that we will actually make it to the retrieval date this time. Please keep my Husband and I on your prayer list!

IVF Week 1 (Take 2)

I was cleared to start my second cycle yesterday and I am so excited. I started my first Lupron injection and will finish my birth control pills on Saturday. My Doctor has cut my meds way down since my estrogen was so high last cycle he doesn't want to risk having another cycle cancelled. I will only be on Lupron and Follistim to start this round and they will increase my meds as needed. So right now if all goes well we are looking at the end of May or the first of June as my retrieval date. I am so ready! Praying that God will give me the strength to get through another cycle. I am beyond ready to start our family and I know in my heart as long as I trust in Him, he will deliver. Thank you God for the faith and strength you have given me through this process.
