October 2013 ICLW
Hello again, ICLWers!
I'm a couple of days late on ICLW this week. Hopefully I will be able to catch up on commenting. Welcome, if this is the first time you are visiting.
This next month should be a pretty exciting month for me. Before the November ICWL, I will hopefully have had my transfer of my adopted embryos. My transfer is currently scheduled for November 20th at the National Embryo Donation Center (NEDC) in Knoxville, TN. I was originally scheduled for a transfer in September, but two days before I was supposed to hop on the airplane, we found out that I have a polyp in my uterus. So sadly that transfer was cancelled, and I am currently scheduled to have a hysteroscopy & polypectomy to remove the polyp on October 31st, yup Halloween. After trying for almost 10 years, including multiple rounds of Clo.mid, IUIs, surgeries (this will be my 4th hysteroscopy!) and 4 rounds of IVFs, AND turning 40 in August, I have to wait yet again. But this is best as we want to ensure that my body is in the ideal condition for the transfer.
I am excited as we have started our protocol. I started BCPs last week after a bit of a drama, which included taking a pregnancy test. Took the test on Thursday, started BCP the same day and my period started on Saturday. I started "loopy Lu.pron" yesterday. Next week, I will have my baseline ultrasound on 10/30, and my surgery on 10/31. And if everything looks good, I will start my Es.trace on 10/31.
