My journey through infertility

We have dates!

I had my IVF consult on Wednesday.  We spent 3 1/2 hours at the clinic going over everything.  He also performed an SHG (sonohysterogram) which showed that there may be a small infection in my uterus.  He said this is an easy fix so we are just adding some kick ass antibiotics to my list of meds.  I was a little surprised by the meds my RE wants to use, but he said he has had a lot of success with this particular protocol, and says it minimizes OHSS (Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome).  I'm very optimistic (maybe a bit too optimistic).  Meds start March 2 and we are looking at egg retrieval and transfer the week of March 12th.

Small update

The big day is almost here...the IVF consult.  In one week I will have a start date, a protocol, and a giant hole in my bank account where all my money once was.  I have never been so excited and so terrified in my life.  What if I don't respond?  What if we can't get any eggs?  What if my eggs are complete crap?   I'm working really hard on distracting myself so I don't obsess too much, but work has been so slow that google just begs to be played with.  Luckily my husband got me an XBox 360 for Christmas so that has been a great distraction at home.
