IVF here we come!!

So, here's the plan. 
1.  December:  No meds this month and pre-IVF testing including saline hysterosalpingogram (or something like that), mock transfer, and special IVF seman analysis for CJ

2.  January (hopefully):  Start my next cycle.  Go in CD 3 for Day 3 labs including FSH, LH, ect.  Start birth control pills.

3.  January/February:  Stims, Retrieval, Transfer, Baby!!

I'm so excited.  I feel like it's a really long road to get there, but I am very confident that this is the best option for us at this point.  For those of you who have done IVF, does this timeline sound normal to you?  I go in next week to meet with the doctor and come up with a plan, but this is what we talked about briefly at my appointment today.  It's funny because I have to put my whole "I want to be pregnant by Christmas thing" on hold while we prepare for IVF, but I feel strangely calm and just excited about it!!  I don't know how I'm gonna get through the next month before we get things started, but I can't wait!!


  1. That sounds like a normal timeframe. I remember being disappointed by all the waiting when I decided to do IVF. Sounds like you are making a great decision to move forward with IVF. Feel free to check out my timeframe here:

    Don't we all want to be pregnant by Christmas??

  2. yay! yay! yay! I hope this is your ticket!!!

  3. I'm so excited for you!!! Something wonderful to look forward to! :)

  4. I think this sounds like the timeline for my IVFs. So excited for you..I hope the new year brings you all you are wishing for!

  5. That timeline sounds very similar to mine. It takes a lot of time and effort, but is worth it. Hang in there!

  6. I am very excited for you! Waiting sucks, doesn't it?! Gave you an award. Stop by to see details.
