Lyndi, Keria, and Kewpie, thanks for checking in! Kewpie, I love your names...and i love the fact that your little boy is going to be a rambunctious one!
RCR, I'm so happy you're starting! I really envy your time off, by the way...sometimes I feel like i want to do that too. Just take some time and not worry about it. But i know i'd worry about it anyway because my brain is defective that way. I'm really really sorry we started the discussion about cancer. I'm sure during your searches you found that they haven't been able to find definitive evidence that cancer risk is increased. Also, according to the clinical studies, EVERYTHING causes cancer. I mean, my typing on this keyboard probably showers me with radiation and leads to cancer. hehe seriously, please don't worry!!
Belly, YAH TO HAVING A PLAN!! I'm excited for you! Can you get the saline sonogram covered? Does your insurance not even cover diagnostics? I know my RE also used my saline sonogram as a "mock transfer"- they just like to have a plan of the uterus. By the way, what a regimen for your FET. I wonder why you need the Lupron. You know, I'm a little worried because I wonder if injectible estrogen and PIO is a more effective way to go. I asked my RE and he said that it was the same but it does look like more people (including him) prefer the injectibles...or at least, start out with them!
Ooph, i typed this up and then read your second post. the question is, would this new doctor put you on the same regimen and also, allow for the blastocyst development? If so, it may be worth it to go forward. Although, then again, it really is only an additional month and a half...do you feel like you'd have any regrets rushing? i mean, if you don't end up with a BFP, will you blame this? If not, I would go for it! (incidentally, I would probably go with the quicker route, just because i'm impatient like that.)
April, how are you doing? how's everything going for you so far?
AFM, on day 6 of BCPs out of 9,820,983 days. Or at least, it feels like I'll be on them that long :o) I went to my new gyn this morning and I really like her. I get in there though and the nurse measures my height and my weight and suddenly, I'm shorter and heavier. I told the nurse and the doctor that this is not a good way to start off the appointment. hehe at least my blood pressure was ok. Seriously, I did gain like 5 pounds though. i really need to go on a diet. I'm sure the dunkin donuts muchkins I ate afterwards didn't help. Maybe i'll start my diet tomorrow. I'm happy i like my new gyn though!
