Lupron is Next

I had my ultrasound with D. Smotrich this morning. All is as it should be and I'm approved to start Lupron injections on March 29th. My last birth control pill will be the 31st, and I can expect my flow for Easter.

My garden sprouted well; corn and beans are 4-5 inches tall! We've been shopping at our local farmer's market every Saturday and really enjoying the fresh locally-grown organic produce.

The Plan

My ovaries are quiet. (good) I will start oral contraceptives, prenatals, and baby aspirin on March 14th.

Ultrasound on March 25th. If within limits, on March 29th will start Lupron at 10 units daily.

End birth control. Expect period around April 1st (April Fools Day!). Continue prenatals and baby aspirin.

Ultrasound on April 12th, and test Estradiol level (blood draw). If within limits, start Delestrogen 0.4cc and Vivelle Patches (2) every Monday and Thursday.

April 19th, ultrasound and estradiol.

April 26th, ultrasound and estradiol. Start Progesterone, Prometrium, Medrol, and Doxycycline.

April 29th, blood draw for estradiol and progesterone levels.

April 30th/May 1st, Embryo Transfer.

I'm back!

My first appointment for our new cycle will be tomorrow morning at La Jolla IVF. I believe Dr. Smotrich will do an ultrasound and then I should be starting oral contraceptives.

We are working towards a fresh transfer with a new egg donor at the end of April. Easter Eggs for Fertility!
