I've been on bcps for 7 days, this will be day 8, and I've had a headache for 4 days in a row. I'm asking the nurse if she can switch brand and maybe that will help. L and O are getting their follow up flu shot today, that should be fun. I have a suppression check on November 10th then start stims on November 14th. It's happening fast. Tentative retrieval set for November 25th.

Headaches went away after 7 full days of being on the BCPs. I am thrilled! I had my suppression check yesterday morning and we're all set to go for IVF. I have 24 antral follicles, and my blood work came back good. I start my first injections on Tuesday. Menopur 75 units, gonal F 100 units, and dexametasone. I'm excited and nervous. Mostly excited though. I've been on supplements for egg quality for a very long time and we added in the metformin so I'm excited to see if that brings about any egg quality changes. I'm not holding my breath but I am excited.

On another note, we're moving! It's going to be insane and we're hiring movers but we found this beautiful 4bdrm 3 bath home for rent (we live in silicon valley and I'm not ready to buy - it's incredibly expensive) and we're so excited to give the kiddos more space to run around. It has a backyard with an organic garden setup. We move a week after retrieval. Should be fun. Lol! Am I insane?! Also, getting the house will make it easier to convince my hubby to transfer an embryo sooner than June!

That is a lot of excitement going on!
I couldn't have imagined moving after my retrievals (I was pretty sore for a few of them - plus we always went for fresh transfers, which you're not doing, right)?

How exciting ash! Moving is crazy. We did it twice in 2 months this summer! But we hired movers for the second(permanent) move and it was so easy in comparison.

bubu - We're not doing a fresh transfer because of CCS testing but also because we need to prep my body for the transfer like we did last time. I did 2 months of depot lupron, so I'll have to do that again ... unfortunately.

Mo - omg 2 times in 2 months, I can't imagine! I think hiring movers is the best thing to do when moving if it's in the budget. I won't ever move the big stuff again myself, it's just too much on the body. I'll still have to manage everybody but we have the nanny taking the kids to the kids museum most of the day so they'll have a great time and be out of the way at least.

I'm on day 4 of stims and had my checkup today. I have 31 follicles growing, I haven't received a call about my blood work numbers but should be receiving that call before 3pm CA time. I'm a little surprised at how many follicles I have growing (I know I'm young blah blah blah) but I definitely expected a little bit of a decline. Nope, not a chance. They are definitely worried about me over stimulating but told me to increase the protein in my diet, and NO BENDING OVER. I'm sad I can't pick up my babies but it's only temporary.
