I want to cycle locally if I can for DE, use a clinic that has in-house donors rather than using a donor agency-- but I am not so sure that this combination will be possible. I am exploring shared risk programs, and wondering about shared egg programs... but... at this time, gathering gathering. I will try to make the choice that feels best to my heart and has the least uncertainty regarding costs since I need to know and plan, since that part freaks me out totally. So while I would like to be local for logistical reasons, if I need to travel to feel the most comfortable, I sure as heck will.
Meds arrive today from Ascend which have somehow improved since my last go-around with them. And my insurance paid for so much you would not believe so I am really lucky. Just under $200 for all of it.
This new protocol includes Mestinon starting sunday along with Lupron--, I'll be stimming with 150 menpur each morning and 450 follistim each evening... and this time I will take Medrol around the time of transfer (please please let there be many good things to transfer). This clinic does 3 day transfers for folks my age. Since I have gotten used to the sprint that is the antagonist protocol, it will be odd to know I could stim for much longer and I have to just breathe and know that unlike my familiar protocol, this one might actually work.
Worries? sure, oh yeah, yes. My only lupron cycle had NO EGGS at retrieval so I am a little (a lot) worried (neurotic) about that. But, overall, with these changes and attention to the details of my actual situation and history, I am curious about what will happen and, yeah, kind of excited in a very nervous sort of way.
Yeah, so, while there is a bit of worry, there is also a bit of excited. It has been a long time since I felt such a big clear Yes.
It could go without saying, I know, but I am keeping Haiti in my heart right now, and donated what I could yesterday via Yele Haiti. Sure makes a lot of my shite look like buttercups.
