Went back to OHSU for the last of our "pre" tests. I had to have a trial transfer and something that counts my possible egg growth.
I was nervous, but excited. It was almost pain free. The only real concern was the Dr. said my cervix is a little tricky to get to and isn't centered. It took him a while to get in where he would drop the embryos. He said it wasn't anything to worry about.
In the meantime, Darren was giving a sperm sample as a backup to freeze, just in case. He said the collection room was incredibly goofy because there was a weired painting of a naked woman on the wall. LOL.
I got the call in the afternoon for my "protocol." It will actually take a little longer than I thought.
I continue on birth control till the 13th
Next week I start Lupron injections to "calm" the ovaries.
About 2 weeks later I start the "stems" FSH and Monopur?
They start monitoring around the 19th.
If everything goes smoothly, they predict Egg retrieval to be between October 28 and Nov 2....
I thought my insurance would pay 50% but they only cover if its for and IUI. So, it looks like the meds will be about $2600 additional. It's okay though.
Still waiting on Darren's end of things...should know Friday. If financially we are sound, we will start shots MONDAY. This is becoming really real.
