Baseline and IVF

I had my baseline ultrasound this morning.  My cyst did grow and measured at 2.7cm this morning.  Neicey (my NP today) seemed to think that starting BCP for the IVF would make the cyst go away.  Before leaving, I scheduled my appointments with Dr. Allemand for Thursday at 11am, and Janet on May 29 at 9am.  We've already went over much information about IVF, but Dr. A will be more detailed on Thursday.  Unfortunately,  Brandon will be gone, but I am trying to find someone else to accompany me this week. 

Brandon has been tobacco free for 4 weeks today.  He's done such a great job!  He has not complained one bit!

*Update*
I just checked my patient voicemail and Janet (IVF nurse) left me a message.
  • Estradiol:  42 (normal range)
  • FSH:  5.9 (normal range)
WoW!  I begin taking my BCP today.  This means that we are moving forward with IVF!! Janet is mailing me my calendar, and I meet with her on May 29th to go over my protocol.  I start Lupron injections on May 28th and will take 10 IU per day for about a week or so.  (I will know more once I receive my calendar.)

Right now I am still in shock that we are beginning the IVF process.  I had anticipated waiting at least two more weeks to take Provera and start my period.  God had other plans.  I am nervous, happy, terrified, and excited all at the same time.  God is so good.
