Start the clock! Today is the day I started "stimming" (meaning I started taking the injectible gonadotropin Follistim) to grow piles of eggs that can be retreived and fertilized once mature (probably in the next 10-14 days). This is the first active step in the IVF process! Woo hoo! Once we start stimming, there's no looking back=). I'm kidding of course. . .cycles can still be cancelled, but it's pretty unlikely in my case since I tend to stim so well.
Anyway, it's exciting to be getting started. I go back into the RE's office on Tuesday for an ultrasound and blood work to determine how well we are doing on the Follistim. Hoping for a good report come Tuesday!
