Green Light

I got the go ahead to start this IVF cycle. The protocol changed slightly which is freaking me out a bit. I got the green light from a very long message left by one of my RE's nurses. She's new and I don't completely trust her. She also has a very think russian accent and I'm not sure if I heard her correctly. I'm usually really good with accents (unlike my mom,who I love very much, but who can't understand anyone who doesn't say "cah" and "pahk." She thinks the news anchors all have wicked accents.) Right now I think I'm too anxious to focus on my nurse's accent. I keep playing the message over and over to no avail. I have the RE's number set for speed dial on my cell phone and I'll be calling them tomorrow morning.

Getting the call that the cycle is a go has made me giddy. It's kind of like right before a first date-all excitement and nervous anticipation at the same time. It's just pure possibility. Of course, my last two first dates ended badly. I so hope this one works for us. Until my first monitoring appointment on December 10, I'm going to stay upbeat. Why not me, right?

I so hope it is you. BlueHairedWoman and and Ikabak made it to the other side. You and FallinWoman just have to be next!

were you ever able to speak to your RE to confirm the change in protocol?

hoping you will be coming over to 'the other side' soon, as yodasmistress put it.

I was able to get in touch with my regular nurse at the RE. She confirmed the protocol, so it's 12/3 for lupron and 12/6 for stims. I hope to join you on the other side soon.

Sounds like you are off to good start. 3rd time is a charm, as they say.

Thinking good thoughts for you!
