So what does this actually look like? Well, I had the blood drawn for 3 tests there at the office, I will then proceed to the lab at the Navy base to finish the other 13 tests (yes...13 total) that they will run. THEN...I have 4 prescriptions to fill once I get the OK. The OK has to do with the Pregnancy test that they will be running on todays labs. Now, I know what some of you are thinking, "OHHHHhhhh....this MUST mean something if they are running this test...she's not giving us the full story!!!!".....no..I AM giving you the full story...and basically, before I can start with the Provera, they want to double check that no miracles took place over the last month, nobody is exactly sure what can happen if I were pregnant while on Prevera...however, it's no big deal if I am. But, no, I haven't ovulated or done anything different...it's just the "We are 100% sure you are not prego." test. The Provera will start Monday morning...and we wait 10 to 20 days for my cycle to start. The day it starts (Day 1 or D1) I call the Dr. office, D2 or D3 I go in for baseline ultrasound and test the hormone levels, and then it's on to a different hormone...the Gonadotropin. These will be self injections then back in for another ultrasound and lab work D8, continue with injections D10 ultrasound and lab work, continue injection D12 ultrasound and lab work, a NEW hormone injection D13. D-Day...approx. D15. Then another new hormone D16-28 and then a PREGNANCY TEST! So....there you have it folks....a break down of my next month!
Keep the prayers coming! The Dr. was great, I feel very confident in the clinic and am very excited. She did let us know that we should be ready for this to take 3-5 cycles before we get pregnant and not to be discouraged or disappointed if it does not happen this first cycle....however, I know that anything is possible! It is all in HIS timing!
