Are we there yet?

It's been over a month since I've posted here, but to my credit, we were out of town for nearly 2 weeks of that, and then got hit with a heat wave (seems the whole country did) and I couldn't stand to have the laptop on my lap pumping out extra heat that long, then we had company and I had to finish up the August newsletter for our local chapter of the MOMS Club (www.momsclub.org). Now that all of that is done, I can finally get back to posting on here.

Before we left for our trip to the NJ shore (beautiful, btw) I was stuck in another long cycle and had not ovulated yet as of cycle day 32 or something so I went in for an ultrasound and they found a 35mm cyst on my right ovary. It was still producing estrogen, so we triggered it just before leaving town in hopes that it would pop and my period would hold off until after we got home so I could start my IVF cycle, finally. Well, my guess is that the cyst was no longer functional (producing estrogen) by the time I triggered it with the hCG injection and my period ambushed me early while in NJ. That means that I have to wait out yet another cycle before starting my IVF. I'm happy to report that I think I did ovulate on time this cycle, so now I'm only about 2 weeks away from starting the madness called In-Vitro Fertilization. Yippee!!!

Other good news, my tests for autoimmune disorders, clotting disorders, and thyroid levels all came back normal!! Yea!!!!!! This means, no extra injections of heparin, but it also leaves the question of why I lost this last pregnancy unanswered. I'm ok with that though, it's nice to know that we've checked things out and everything seems to be ok. Now, we just have to hope that I can make enough eggs to give us a good shot with this IVF. So, are we there yet?
