That's right. If we stay on track for a November 7th retrieval, that's just shy of a fortnight. :)

I took my last bcp yesterday so now I'm just waiting for my period. That should be Sunday if the last 4 cycles are indicative. At my acupuncture appointment last night I ask for extra needles that move blood and chi (apparently they go together) in the hopes that my period would come quicker. I don't expect it to but with the additional needles last cycle, I had a flow that was better than anything to date on while on the pill. It will be interesting to see just how light this one will be given that my last was 2 weeks ago.

If the donor is on track she should be starting stims tomorrow as she would be starting 12 days before the estimated retrieval date. I've emailed the agency to ask if I'll be getting updates on follicle count and such but I've not heard back. I've been getting updates on everything else, so I'd like to think that we'd get this information as well. If not, you know I'll be asking when I'm at the clinic next week.

Anyway, that's all for now.

Thanks for keeping us updated. It really is right around the corner. I can't wait to hear how the donor does.

Things are moving right along! My last BCP was yesterday too! I have never had a period on Lu.pron before. Let the fun begin! My ET is estimated at 11/11.

You are so close!! I'm keeping everything crossed that all goes very smoothly, according to plan, and that you have a great number of eggs retrieved!!

I did this, sort of, with my chiropractor. The cycle before IVF was so bright and red, not one speck of brown blood to be found. It worked for me, and poof I had twins! Okay, so that's not so scientific, but I do wish you all the luck in the world!!!
