Whew…this has been quite a build up and I must say it’s a relief to finally be doing this IVF!!

I went to Vita.lab for a scan this morning, i’m still bleeding quite a bit which Dr V doesn’t understand as the pill is supposed to keep your lining thin, my lining was 3mm and there was still blood “in the cavity” as Dr V explained to the nurse but otherwise everything is quiet on the ovary front.

He’s just come back from a conference in Spain and must have learnt something different because this morning he looked through my file and decided to “tweak” my protocol a bit, here’
s the plan:

Day 1 & 2 of stim ~ 225iu Gonal F
Day 3, 4, 5 of stim ~ 225iu Gonal F and 37.5iu Luveris
Day 6, 7, 8 & 9 of stim ~ Scan, 225iu Gonal F, 37.5iu Luveris & cetrotide
Day 10 ~ Possible trigger!!!!
Day 12 ~ Possible egg retrieval!!!!

There’s some Anti-biotics somewhere inbetween for both Frank and I and of-course Frank is still on his injections so mixing them in the morning is gonna take me forever!

It’s different but I think Dr V’s onto something here, we’re starting to feel a bit more positive, it doesn’t really feel real yet. I had a bit of a cry on the way there this morning, feeling a bit overwhelmed I think but it’s all good. We’re ready so bring it on!!!

I know that I don’t need to ask, but please keep us in your thoughts and prayers ~ we going to need all the help we can get here, please please please let this be it.
