We have lift off!!!

It seems that we're good to go, finally!

V. and I went into the clinic today. The doctor said "you know the drill" and headed off to get the status on the donor. He was only gone a few minutes. He walked back into the room and said November 7 for retrieval. I of course did my internal happy dance and said I guess the donor's bloodwork came back the way he wanted and he responded with something like "everything is where it should be".

So, I'm to stop the pill today, wait for my period and on CD2, start a new package. I'm to take it for 13 days, stop the package and on CD2 go back into the clinic which looks to be on or about October 31st. The timing seems off to me if retrieval is currently estimated to be 7 days later. We'll have to wait and see.

Yay! Progress. I am curious how they can predict retrieval so far out. Will be interesting to see how this goes!

WOOHOO!!!!!

I am so glad things are moving forward!!

I would call your RE's office and talk to someone about the BCPs so far into the cycle. I never had to take them with mine, so I'm no expert, but if you have a question, call and make them pay attention and answer!! You deserve not to feel uneasy.
