infertility IVF IVF/ICSI preparations

What am I supposed to be doing now?

So, I’ve been taking the birth control pills since CD 2 per direction of the fertility center nurse. I had a headache on the first two days I took them that reminded me of why I didn’t continue them in my youth despite horrible menstrual cramps. Today, I feel better and I’m just anxious for the what’s next.

I haven’t heard from my nurses, so I called and left a voice message. I think I need to re-update some blood work as it expires at the end of the month, but the numbers are still the same according to the baseline blood work and ultrasound I did on CD 1. I know I’m probably driving them crazy, but I’m ready. I really am ready.

My gf, who has used this facility and gone through this process before with successful results, mentioned the next step will probably be the mock embryo transfer (done between cycle days 5-12) and then signing up for IVF injection class. Sounds right according to the paperwork, but I haven’t heard anything yet.

I still have time. I know. I’m pretty sure the staff said we won’t retrieve and transfer until October. But that will be here soon enough. Oh my goodness, I’m ready to proceed!
