This morning we had our baseline ultrasound at Stanford. I thought this was to check for follicles, but this is actually to make sure that your ovaries are truly resting and getting ready for the next cycle.
The doctor saw one small cyst on each ovary, but they were nowhere near a size that he said we should be concerned about.
We opted to push my cycle out four days as I didn't want to deal with the hassle of taking the medications on the airplane, figuring out how to keep them cool, etc. Plus, what's the fun of a college reunion if you can't have at least one drink.
Our current tentative schedule is:
Start shots on 10/27
First stim u/s 11/2
Projected egg retrieval 11/8
Projected embryo transfer 11/11
All these dates, of course, are subject to change.
