All Clear!!

I could barely answer the phone when it rang.  I was filled with such dread.  I hate that IF has made it nearly impossible to imagine a positive outcome.

She didn't drag anything out but cut right to the chase that everything looked great (she used that exact word!) with my blood work and u/s and that I need to stop the Lupron and start my estrogen shots tonight!!  She also said that my donor will begin her stims next week (probably the 20th or 21st) and that she'd call me to let me know.  She also said that I'd get a call every day that the donor came in for monitoring.  Awesome!

Thank you all so very much for your positive thoughts and your hopes and your prayers and all the things you crossed!  I knew I could count on y'all to think good things when all I could come up with was negativity.

Ok, now to start fretting about the shot tonight.  :-)  It's always something, isn't it?  I will do FINE.  I have been looking forward to this for a very long time...bring on that big scary needle!!  I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Such great news! I also have that sense of dread when the phone rings and I am waiting for news- especially from a Dr. Hoping that things go well with the first shot and this is a sign that the entire process will be smooth sailing from here!

Hi, I'm Tracey and here through ICLW from The Fertility Daily. I'm an IVF mom and can relate to the mega long wait as my own journey took 6 years and as many IVFs. I blog for my IVF docs now to share my stories.

We do so much Donor Egg at Long Island IVF that I can't tell you how excited I am for you that you took that step! It makes all the difference in so many cases! Good luck!

In addition to finding new blogs, I hope NIAW and ICLW will help me spread the word about LIIVF's free micro-IVF contest. So if you know anyone (since this cycle will hopefully be YOUR lucky one!!!) who could benefit from a free micro-IVF cycle contest, the details will be at our blog or on our FB this week.

Hello from ICLW #99!

I'm also doing DE IVF. We are scheduled for our egg retrieval on May 8th.

Looking forward to following and sharing this crazy ride.

Wishing you the very best luck.

Hello from ICLW! I really related to your sentence stating that IF has made it impossible to conceive of a positive outcome. Hope is a dangerous thing, sometimes. Good luck with the DEs!

Hi from ICLW! I agree with Kristin above. Your comment about IF making it impossible to imagine a postiive outcome is exactly my life right now. I so totally understand this. But please know we are all hopeful for you even if you don't feel it yourself sometimes. :) Hope to stay in touch! Best of luck with your shot!
