Infertility Veterans

Looks like I'll be around a bit more....

The last week has been really overwhelming. I had the big Endocrinology test last Wednesday, and then I got an email from my new RE that (I thought) was telling me that if the test came back normal he wouldn't cycle me with my OE, since this test was like a one last hope for a reason for my IVF failure. Well, I was really upset....even more so yesterday when the Endo. called to tell me the test was normal. OMG. However, I reached out to the RE to confirm his email to me and apparently I misunderstood what he meant so I spoke to his nurse and we are going to try and get into the end of June cycle!!!

He's going to cycle me with Follistim and a low dose of HCG....Interesting :)

I have to spend the next month trying to psych myself up again for this. Woooohooo Go needles shooting up yay buddy!!!
