My DH and I met with our RE yesterday, and we are hopefully going to get things going faster than I thought we would. AF is supposed to start tomorrow, so if all goes well we will be going to Grand Rapids next tuesday for a Mock retreval, a SHG, and to meet with the IVF nurse. Our RE wants to do Long Lupron Protocol, so we will be looking to start Lupron on April 4th, and an egg retreval around April 30th.. if I did the calculating right . I'm very very very new to all of this, so I could be wrong lol. It's weird to be praying for AF when we've hoping AF didn't show for over a year now!

That sounds exciting! I am excited for you. I am going to see the RE next week (March 21st) and am hoping we can start things fast. Good luck with everything and let me know how everything goes. I am sure I won't be far behind you with the whole IVF thing!

We're really excited! But of course AF did not come on time so we will probably be pushed back one more week. Good luck at your appointment!!

She is hiding well! I schedule my sono for March 27th, so she better get here soon! I know stress doesn't help, but it's hard to not worry. I took a test this morning, but naturally it was negative...
