FET #3 - It's On!

Wait.. what?

Last I updated, we'd found out about an ovarian cyst buggering up my cycle. The plan was to wait 5 days and then go ahead and start taking the birth control pill.

Well, on day 4 I started spotting. I rang the clinic, who said it could be just spotting - or if it turned into full flow, to not bother taking the pill and to ring them. Lo and behold, the next morning: hello, AF.

(YAY?)

I mean, it's bittersweet. I'm happy she arrived, because it means that the cyst levels must have started dropping enough to instigate a bleed. But then, it was too late to start a cycle anyway, right? Maybe not...

My IVF clinic had me in on Day 4 to do a blood test, and to pay for a cycle. I started Gonal-F yesterday and will go in for bloods again on Saturday to see how things are going. I'm nervous that this is going to be a VERY tight squeeze (got to ovulate, trigger, and transfer, all before February 11th) but I have a bit of faith that this surprise cycle might be a lucky one!

Either way, it's out of my hands. I'm jabbing and I'm waiting and I'm being hopeful!!! :)

I hope all goes well and everything is done before your trip! Also glad that AF arrived and you didn't have to resort to the pill. I think you are right - life surprises us when we least expect it. I'd say that is a good omen! XOXO

Hi from ICLW! Good luck! I remember vividly having ovarian cysts, having them drained or them interfering with IVF cycles. It is such a hard road, My hope for you is that it is successful!!!

Are you doing a natural FET? I figure since you are taking gonal-f. I really hope the surprise cycle leads to another big surprise at the end! Good luck!

I won't pretend I understand everything you just said. I hope it all goes well and you don't ever feel like giving up...hugs. It would likely not be safe for my health and/or that of the unborn baby for us to have another child right now....but I will still keep hoping and working toward it as long as that is ever a possibility. Find something to smile about and journal the experience every day...you will be an inspiration to your children and to other women.
