So this happened tonight…
This is the start of IVF with PGD round 2.
The next cycle timeline looks like this:
June 23rd- July 7th (about 14 days) Aygestin pill which I will take for two days and then start my Lupron shots.
July 7th- July 15th- ish- Stim injections and Lupron for 10-12 days
July 16th (give or take a couple of days)- HCG trigger shot
35 hours later- Egg Retrieval
July 23rd (ish) 5 day biopsy
July 29th-30th (ish)– POSITIVE …Results of biopsy
We are trying to think positively and feel good about this next cycle. I am a little nervous about taking medication for two extra weeks this cycle and I’ve heard from the nurses and my fellow ttcsisters (try to conceive sisters) that Lupron causes migraines. I love a good headache so I’m really looking forward to those if they decide to show up.
In other news, I’ve given up coffee completely for this cycle and those of you who know my Starbucks obsession know I must mean business this cycle. This was tonight’s dessert.
Green Apple/Spinach Smoothy:
- 1 cup spinach (2 giant handfuls works)
- 6 frozen coconut water ice cubes
- 1 granny smith apple (chopped)
- hand full of mint
- handful of Flax Seeds
Blend together, add more coconut water if it’s too thick and add to cup.
