I don't want to be the kind of person that posts with every single update in their life, but I figured it was quite aruond here and we got some good news and progress around our situation. As you may remember, our current RE refused to do the FET with our DEmbryos due to a dumb FDA red tape issue. However yesterday, we found a great RE in San Antonio that will do the FET and even better, this clinic has the best FET SART rates in Central Texas - much better than our current RE!
We were even willing to drive to San Antonio for all of the process (1.5 hours each way) but it turns out that they have a satellite office in Austin which is only 20 minutes away. The doctor that has agreed to oversee our cycle is the medical director over third party reproduction but she will be teaming with a second doctor (highly revered) on her team that will be seeing me locally. I feel like they really want to give me the best shot possible with great care. In dealing with the office staff, I have been blown away to their attentiveness, flexibility, and care about our situation.
AND they are not going to make me do a repeat SHG and HSG like I thought I was going to have to do. I think my SHG was the most painful procedure I've ever had done in my life so you can imagine my relief.
We have our consult on December 13th and we should be deciding on cycle dates. I can't believe how fast this went from a bleak, desperate waiting game to moving so quickly and wonderfully.
The donor "V" and her husband were supposed to sign the notarized clinic paperwork last Saturday, but I guess their clinic never sent her the form. Argh. But V just told me she finally got the paperwork and will be able to get them signed either today or Saturday. I told her that as a silly request, to please let us know so my husband and I can pop a bottle of champagne to celebrate.
I've never really looked deeply into FET protocols and calendars. I had been thinking we would be doing this sometime in January or February. But I've done some reading that says you might have to be on BCP or Lupron for quite a bit. For those of you who have done FET, what was your medication protocol and calendar like?
