We are finally starting..........

Well, AF arrived yesterday.  I called Wash U and was told to start BCP's Monday the 20th (which happens to be my birthday), Lupron Jan 6th, first doctors appt Jan 19th and if all goes well start stims on Jan 21st.  ER should be week of Jan 31st. Very excited, very nervous!!!  I am so ready to get things going. 

How soon after I start stims, should I expect my first doctors appointment for ultrasound and blood work???


  1. Usually you get your first follicle scan on the 5th of 6th day of stims.

    BTW---I noticed you said Wash U. Do you live in STL?
    My DH was a police officer in STL about 5 years ago! We don't live there now though.

    Good luck with your cycle. This first cycle is all about finding the right medicine dosages to get you to produce the right amount and size of follicles.

  2. Amanda- No, I live about 2 1/2 hours from there but am travelling there for IVF. I am praying this is more than finding the right meds, this will be our only chance. We dont have the funds to try again. So, I hope this produces a baby. Thanks for the well wishes

  3. How exciting and nerve racking at the same time...Hold on tight girlie there will be lots of ups and downs during this time period...Try ahead now to plan somethings for you....or have the hubs carry somethings out for you because you will need these days with little surprised to lift you up even when things are going good it is still a stressful process:)

  4. Good luck!!
    I have a scan for follicle check a week after starting stims.
