First monitoring appointment.. check!

So I had my first appointment in Wexford bright and early yesterday morning!  Had to be there at 8:30 so had to leave my house by 6:45 am.  Nothing like driving 3 hours total for a 25 minute appointment ;)

Had my blood drawn and ultrasound done to make sure everything is on track for our Jan transfer.  Got the call from NEFI about noon that everything looked GREAT and was instructed to start the estradiol today, 3 pills a day.  So currently I take my prenatal vitamins in the morning, an estradiol pill(estrogen hormone) morning, noon and night and my 10 iu Lupron injection before going to sleep.

Next step is another monitoring appointment 12/26.  I now just refer to Wednesdays as "Poke and Prod" day :)  We will be seeing how thick the lining is after a week on estrogen and see if we need to change the amount if it isn't thickening fast enough.

The lupron shots are no big deal now.  My belly is a little sore from being a pin cushion, but not too bad.  Continuing on with them for awhile longer.  Transfer is getting so CLOSE!!!

My meds are here!! Along with all my little needles, hehe.  I'm so excited I just want to stab myself right this instant I say!!

Anyway, I start Lupron injections this coming Sunday the 9th, start Estradiol about the 20th per instruction, I have three monitoring appointments in Wexford in the next month and am preparing for transfer Jan 11th or 12th!!  So exciting :)  Endomettrin will be added sometime before transfer but I haven't got that yet.  So yeah, I am sooo ready to get all knocked up in a little over a month - woohoo! :)
