And we're off! The witch arrived today 2/17 instead of her due date of 2/22. Our meds are ordered for our ICSI/IVF cycle and will arrive Wednesday of next week. First bloods scheduled for 3/8 and Lupron to begin the next day. Ahhhh breathe. I'm really not looking forward to my butt hurting from the injections, in fact I'm dreading it, but it is what it is ER looks to be approx 3/30 and ET 4/2.

I feel your excitement. AF arrived for me today at my surprise. It "was" cycle day 22, which is two days earlier than what it came last month on bcp. Kind of in shock, but ready to find out what this month will hold. This will be my 3rd time trying to cycle, but havent been able due to the number of cysts the first time and the size of the cysts the second time.

I hope this cycle for you is successful and provides you and your family with the miracle you have been waiting for. When you do the injections, do you ice the area first?
