Transfer date!!

Got my calendar from the clinic yesterday and we have a tentative transfer date of July 16th! YAY!!! Bout time we got something going!

I start Lupron on June 15th, then all the other meds will follow accordingly. I talked to the coordinator at the clinic about doing Crinone instead of the PIO injections and she seemed to think it would be okay, but when I got my calendar it still had the PIO on there. :\ I asked her about it and she said that Dr. K "strongly encourages" doing the PIO injections at least until the pregnancy is confirmed. UGH!! Not cool. I suppose I can deal with a daily shot in the ass for 3 weeks rather than the normal 12 weeks! Kev's gonna have to brush up on his shot administering skills....or maybe I can get my mom's cousin, who's an RN, to do them for me! ☺

Here's the shortened version of my calendar:
6/15 Begin Lupron
6/20 Last BCP (thank goodness!)
6/24 Ultrasound (baseline lining check) & labs; start Estrace
6/28 Increase Estrace to 2x day
7/1 Increase Estrace to 3x day
7/8 Ultrasound (lining check) and labs
7/11 Tentative date to start PIO
7/16 Possible transfer

It's becoming more real!!!

P.S. Still not happy about the damn shots!! Ok....done whining........for now ;)

Talk to you soon!

Glad to see things are moving. Sorry to hear about the shots but you know it'll be worth it when you see the results in about 10 more months!

welcome to the wonderful experience of surrogacy! Thanks for sharing your story with us! I think Pregnancy is not possible for everyone. Many couples who cannot attain parenthood after trying to conceive for more than one year.
