Crap. There goes my protocol knowledge.

Since my beta was a mere 4.1 last week, they wanted me to come in again two days later for a recheck. But since my lovely AF came right along on time, I obviously didn't need to go today.

I forgot there was a second reason for today - I was going to get my IVF schedule. Crap.

It's not like I ~need~ to know anything right now. I don't start stims until March 17th-ish. But since I was planning to be out of town on the 17th, I was going to wait to see how she worked with my schedule before I bought the plane tickets. I wanted to do that this weekend. And now I can't.

Plus, having a known schedule would have just been cool.

This probably sounds a little silly, but I think getting the schedule is one of the most exciting parts of an IVF cycle. Yes, I'm a planner. Does your clinic answer phone calls on the weekend? Maybe they can email your schedule to you.

Bummer about the protocol. If you start stimming on march 17th - that is a lucky day. Not only is it St Patrick's day, it is also my parents 35th wedding anniversary. It's a good day in my book. Best of luck!~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~**~

I always like to make plans & to-do lists. even if it's just knwing what comes next & when. I'm sorry you don't have that yet.

Welcome back from Boston though!

Sorry for the bad news. It's nice to get your IVF protocol early so you can let it sink in. And, you can always wait another month to start your cycle. I say go for the trip. IVF is stressful, so take the time you need to prepare mentally. Another month won't make much of a difference in terms of your age.

Hey Nancy, is it possible for her to mail it to you? My RE's nurse mailed me our packet of info & consent forms & I received it within two days. Maybe you can ask them to send it out today.
