Welcome to the group KJRSMR
Looks like we're on a pretty similar cycle.
Just out of curiosity - do your clinics give you a set egg retrieval date? Or do they play it by ear depending on how your follicles are developing? Also, how much monitoring are you having during your stims?
I have a tentative ER date depending on how the follicles are developing. I have a baseline ultrasound & bloodwork done on the 28th to make sure everything is suppressed with my ovaries (and to rule out ovarian cysts) and then another u/s & b/w on day 4 of my stims, then daily u/s & b/w starting on day 6 of stims. Depending on how I'm responding they'll tweak my dosages.
2 shots of lupron down and all is well
