One Step Closer...
Well, my cycle day one ended up arriving earlier than expected. Cycle day one was on Saturday, June 10th. It is required that I go to see the RE (reproductive endocrinologist) on cycle day 3 to have a "lupron evaluation". They will do a baseline ultrasound and bloodwork. This will let the doc know where my hormone levels are at this time and if my uterine lining looks as it should. If everything looks good, I will be instructed to start my stim shots (gonal-F and Menopur). These stim shots will be given in the evenings, and they will help stimulate my ovaries to produce multiple follicles (which will hopefully yield a good amount of viable eggs). So - tomorrow morning I will have the tests done, and I will more than likely begin the stim shots tomorrow night. Stay tuned!
