Infertility

Intro

Hi ladies!  Just wanted to do a quick intro over here since we have come to the point of hopefully starting an IVF cycle.  We have 2 adorable furbabies (in my siggy) and we love the Chicago Bears!  I've been around the bump for about a year and a half on TTGP, for the last few months on 3T, and now here.  Will you have me????  Big Smile

Our TTC history is in my siggy.  We are diagnosed MFI.  I'm waiting for AF after our second failed IUI.  I were planning on doing 3 IUI's before moving on to IVF, but with our insurance coverage for IF ending at the end of the year, we are jumping ahead since IVF is what our RE recommended at the beginning anyways.  My DH has come a long way in the past 6 months from at first refusing to do any treatments, and now being on board for IVF.  I'm so proud of him and the growth that has happened for him and us!  The next few days are going to be quite stressful with getting approvals from my insurance company for the IVF cycle.  FX that AF gets here tonight or tomorrow morning so that things can get rolling.  I hope everything falls into place in time.  My clinic does IVF cycle dates, so we are hoping to be ready in time for the 12/6/12 cycle.

First and only question for now:  What does the 12/6/12 date mean?  Does that mean that ER/ET will be around that time?  My nurse said I would need to start stims by 11/14/12.

Sorry that this got a little long.  And now chocolate for all!!
