Mock Cycle Begins

I'm all "cleared" from the clinic! (Guess I fooled that psych test pretty well!) :)

Now I start my "mock cycle"...What is a mock cycle? I'm glad you asked!
In a nutshell a mock cycle is basically a "practice run". I am put on the same estrogen medication that I'd be on if I were going to do a real transfer, I go in for blood work and ultrasounds to get my lining checked and that way the Dr's will know if the meds are the correct dosage or if they need to tweak anything. Once they know what will work THEN I stop the meds and start all over again for the real thing.

Kinda cumbersome, but it makes sense. I mean, why would you go in blind for such an important thing? Anywho, I start on estrogen patches tomorrow and I have a check-up on the 1st and the 11th. We'll see how it goes! Hopefully we'll be having a transfer by the end of October. I'll keep ya posted.
