Well, not for me. For Goose!
I got the call yesterday that she got her period and started her birth control pills. My nurse told me that she would start her stim meds on September 22nd. Her first ultrasound and blood work appointment would be on September 25th/26th. They will also schedule an "embryo regroup" appointment with myself and Dr. G to discuss the cycle on September 30th. I guess at that point we'll have a good idea of how many follicles will be retrieved since I believe that's the day they will have her trigger (approx.). They are shooting for a retrieval on October 2nd.
That's just over a month away!! We're going to go ahead and book T's flight to Denver for the 30th - 2nd and make changes or adjustments to his flight if needed.
I ordered her meds yesterday. I was pleasantly surprised at the cost. I guess after I had the kitchen sink thrown at me for my IVF cycle, fertile folks meds are cheap in comparison!! I'll take it. Not complaining, not even a little.
I feel like such a back seat passenger. All I'm really doing is swiping the credit card!! Never thought I'd be so removed from trying to create our child. I'm glad that this is happening, it certainly has given me a sense of hope and renewed strength whilst I continue to deal with my issues. I just wish I could jump in and participate!
I've been thinking a lot about the letter and gift that I will give Goose. I'm trying to make it personal, unique, but special. Feels like a lot of pressure considering what she's giving me.
So for the next 3 weeks I'll be a fidgety, anxious mess waiting to find out how this is going to go down and hoping and praying that I can finally get in the game somehow.
I need a hobby...stat. (that doesn't involve me and a mall)
