I am doing a horrible job documenting this process! Here’s what’s been going on:
Jerry and I met with Dr. S to go over our protocol on 3/11. I also needed to have a physical and cervical cultures plus some more bloodwork (CBC, type & screen, HIV, RPR, Hep B&C). I found out my mammogram came back clear (Yay!) and Dr. S reviewed the whole process with us. As I had my Rubella vaccination on 3/6, we can’t proceed with the first cycle @ 3/27 as I had hoped. You need to wait 30 days after the vaccination to get pregnant. So, that means we’ll be getting the party started @ 4/21! We went over all of the medications (yikes…I’m petrified of this part!) and were given the pharmacy information for a place in Pittsburgh. My insurance doesn’t cover any of the meds so it really doesn’t matter where we order them.
We scheduled the nurse talk for 3/29. This is when we sign all of the consent forms and go into massive debt. Shit’s getting real!
I want to thank everyone who has left comments and introduced themselves. This process can get very lonely…I don’t know anyone going through this in real life. I feel like my friends are getting really sick of the “why me” tears and the constant updates. I hate that I have to go through this but it’s really comforting to not have to go it alone.
