Update from Appt.

I went to the doctor today. Didn't see the doctor but did an ultrasound to check for cyst. Goods news -- I didn't have any -- which for me is great news! Nurse tried to put me on low dose BCPs until the day I came back from the family reunion July 27 (35 days). I quickly shot that down as I didn't want to be oversuppressed like last time. She said I wouldn't be because they were low dose and I reminded her that the pills before were low dose as well. So I'm starting BCPs today and will take them till Monday (8 days). Which means AF should start again on July 3 and then again on July 29th and I get back in town on the 27th. However if AF decides to do her own thing and show up early I'll just leave the family reunion early and come back home. The family reunion is in Charleston and we're driving so if I had to come back early, it wouldn't be a big deal for me. With AF starting on July 29th that means an estimated ER on August 10 and an estimated ET on August 15th. I also told my nurse to ask if my doc thought I should do PGD. Last time we asked she said no, but I wanted to see if she had changed her mind since the last cycle, and if so we'll get PGD done as well. Another $3200 but this is our last fresh cycle, so I guess we should go in it with no regrets. I also had them show me in my chart where it said ICSI all and it was there, so if it don't get done this time, somebody will get sued! So the countdown has restarted.

Update: My nurse asked the embryologist about PGD, he said that my quality last time didn't warrant PGD. However we will take it day by day and if they think its needed when we see what we're working with then we will get it. Its done in office, so making a last minute decision won't be an issue, but getting $3,200 might be!
