3/28/12 - Blood Work, Updated Schedule

This morning I had blood work done.  I don't know what for, I just know that they called me this afternoon and said I'm ok to do my transfer on 4/26 and I need to start taking Aygestin 2x/day.  I take this until 4/3 when I get another blood test.

I also start 20 units of Lupron injections on Sunday 4/1 and I'll probably continue with those injections every day until 4/20 then I'll switch to Progesterone Oil injections and continue with those until around 5/5 (That's right!  May 5th!  That's a lot of injections!).  The Lupron "suppresses the pituitary to prevent ovulation".  I actually don't know what the progestrone oil does... besides get me PREGO!! ;)  I just do as I'm told.

There are about 5 blood tests and a few ultrasounds between now and transfer day 4/26.  I'll keep you posted.  Oh, and I also start taking Estrace (Estradiol) 3x/day on 4/8.

I'm in good spirits and very excited about all of this :)  Thanks for all of your support!


  1. I know we just finished discussing this earlier this evening, but it really is amazing! I am praying for you! Good luck, love! <3!

  2. April 26th is Aubrey's Birthday. FYI:) Glad to hear you are doing well.

  3. Well, you'll be about a week after me. Glad that things seem to be moving forward!
    The Progesterone in oil is to support your uterine lining. Those shots are usually big needles, but they aren't as bad as they look.
    Good luck cycle buddy!
