Pacem In Terris, I made a detour to the biffy (outhouse/bathroom). AF showed up then. I only had a 26 day cycle this month. No wonder I thought I ovulated early this month.
Yesterday I called the clinic to schedule an appointment for the next round of IVF. For some reason I thought I needed to schedule blood work and/or ultrasound. Silly me, not needed. The nurse told me I only need to start BCPs (birth control pills) today and show up for our IVF nurses consult on June 15th.
So that's it. We are off to our next round of IVF. Yup, we are going for it now instead of waiting another month. At first, I thought I'd like to wait a month. I'm considering using acupuncture this time around, if I can find the right practitioner. I thought maybe I'd give it some time for acupuncture to take effect, but I can do it while on BCPs.
Also, Babe does not want us to wait any longer. He is not sure how long he will stay at his job as they are anticipating another round of layoffs. He was surprised he survived the last one. We want to do this while we still have IVF coverage on his insurance, just in case.
Plus if we wait another month, my egg retrieval/embryo transfer will be in August. Yeah, I'm turning 37 in August! Another year older, and the ticking clock gets louder! I know it's just one month, but somehow I would feel better about doing this at "36" versus 37.
It will be around 4 months since my last egg retrieval to my next one. Sometimes it feels like it was just yesterday when I found out about my cancelled transfer. At other times, it feels like it was a lifetime ago. We are just praying that this is THE cycle for us.
So here we go again...
