september cycle start. or not.

so we were going to wait and start the cycle in september….. i felt so much better  

that gave me about 26 days to deal with health insurance, order meds, set up the PGD, get my acupuncturists on board and make my ute baby ready.

it went fast.  i dealt with all the shit i thought i needed.  september 21 came and so did AF.  went in for day 3 labs and cycle start.  the ivf nurse mentioned we hadn't done the genetic screening.

i think maybe someone might have mentioned that….. why didn't anyone follow up, or put it on my checklist of shit you must do.

i'm not sure.

sooooo we had to push it back another month.  we had the blood drawn and shipped out that day for the genetic testing.

choosing a doctor

august 2013
we had to decide.   decide on a doctor for our last ivf.  our hail mary.  the all our eggs in one basket cycle.  the no stone left unturned cycle.

our choices- 

Crazy european doctor in las ve.gas.  says i can't get knocked up and stay knocked up without him and his crazy iv mayonnaise drugs (IViG)


local baby factory doc.  says, "i don't know, maybe we can try?"

(For the record i know that IViG has helped many women with RPL to get pregnant and stay pregnant.  and for that matter helped many with autoimmune issues.
i am not knocking it.  At All.  its just my way.  i mean its got eggs and oil in it....mayonnaise)

hubs was not too keen on an ivf cycle in las ve.gas.  with a doctor we wouldn't meet in person until like 2 days before retrieval.  plus traveling during a cycle sounded like a nightmare.

so we chose the local factory doctor.

he wanted to start right away…..i was on CD1.
he wanted to order meds, have them overnighted, set up PDG with my health insurance, and do the baseline the next morning and get the show on the road. (all in two days)

i was in.  and so was hubs.

and then we left the office….. it was too quick.  i needed a minute.  i wasn't ready.
