And One....

And the picture says it all. After 3 months of Depot Lupron, another SHG, and another Endo Biopsy, lots of waiting.....IVF#5 is finally underway.

It has taken a lot of patience to wait these 3 months out. Been lapped by so many pregnancies and oops pregnancies and thrown in my face I'm pregnant but don't want this baby ordeals. Just a lot to deal with. But now I can finally feel proactive at working towards getting pregnant.

At today's baseline I had 10 antral follies on the right and 6 antral follies on the left and a small cyst on my right ovary that they are not worried about. They did test my E2 and FSH level again but when my nurse called she didn't have the numbers so she said she would call me back tomorrow to give me the numbers.

So tomorrow morning I will do Lupron, Gonal F and Menopur and tomorrow night I will do Lovenox, Gonal F and Menopur. My RE also wanted me to start taking Caltrate which has Calcium and Vitamin D in it. He said this once he found out I would be on Lovenox for an extended period of time, so I guess it may effect my calcium level or bones or something.....not sure.

First appointment will be on Sunday which will be stim Day 5 just for blood work and everyday after that is blood work and ultrasounds.

Yup. Heparin / Lovenox leach calcium from your system. Good call by your RE.

Congratulations on moving forward and may Five be fabulous!
