The IVF consult this evening almost ended in disaster. Our appointment was set six weeks ago for six o'clock this evening. At five fifteen as we were leaving for the appointment, I checked my voice mail only to find that the clinic had called. The clinic wanted to push back by appointment by an hour. As we drove over, we really had no idea whether or not anyone would actually be at the clinic. Oh, the emotions! I hadn't realized until that thirty minutes of uncertainty how much having the consult before Thanksgiving meant to me. It was Thanksgiving 2011 when we announced to family our plan to move on to IVF. I really needed to feel as though we had moved forward in life, in treatment in...well, everything.
Fortunately, everyone was still at the clinic waiting for us, and the appointment went well. We were given a number, a guess, an estimate of success of 76%. It looks like we will be using a lupron trigger protocol, ironically, the protocol that I know the least about!
I start provera as soon as I get the prescription filled and then the real fun can begin!
