We’ve got a green light for IVF #2 and are just waiting on the cycle to come. This time we’ll be trying an antagonist protocol rather than the long lupron and we’re feeling good about it. Everyone involved agrees that lupron was no good for A. The fun bonus is that this protocol is at least a week shorter.
So the calendar is looking something like:
– Stim (follistim and menopur) first week of November
– Suppress around the end of that week (ganirelix)
– Retrieval/Transfer second week of November (Rosebud will be 1!)
– Thanksgiving-ish pregnancy test
A also wants to add acupuncture this cycle ensuring her status as a human pin cushion (i kid!) so she’ll be doing a session during stims, before and after transfer, and sometime around hopeful implantation.
And that’s the update from our camp. It looks so nice and clean on paper…lets hope it translates to reality and resembles nothing of the rollercoaster that was IVF #1.
