Squeaky Wheel? Meet Oil.

I sent my agency another reminder that November would be perfect for the embryo transfer and that I was freaking out that we were being pushed into December, not the best time for me. Apparently the ED was sent her legal documents mid-September but the law group never followed up, until they sent them again mid-October.

Well, today I got an email with tenative dates . . . and they're in November. As long as the ED sends in her items ASAP and agrees with the dates, we'll be moving- and quick!

10/26/11 - Ultrasound (US)/Estradiol level (E2)-If OK, start Lupron . . . . you read that correctly- in TWO DAYS I start injections!

10/28/28/11- Take last ACTIVE birth control pill and expect a period

11/01/11- Ultrasound. -US/E2-If OK, start Estrogen too

11/08/11 Ultrasound.- US/E2-Lining check

11/15/11- Ultrasound.- US/E2-Lining check

11/15/28/11- Possible Progesterone Start

11/18/11-Possible Embryo Transfer -Day 3/ GSN

11/20/11- Possible Embryo Transfer -Day 5

YEP! A possible embryo transfer on the 18th of November. NOVEMBER!!!

I am so excited and I hope it works out . . . those dates would be perfect . . . not having to miss any teaching days, just my store days. Woot! Woot!

I am a little nervous that Dr. Kolb's medication protocal is different than Dr. Sahakians. I am used to Dr. S's . . . I got pregnant on the first try both times . . . I've never had to take Lupron. I am sure it will all work out.

Using an IVF Due Date Calculator, it would put my due date at August 7th- which would be PERFECTION!! I have never made it to a due date . . . have delivered my own at 36-38 weeks and both sets of twins at 37-almost 39 weeks . . . so it will probably be more like a July due date . . . which could have me back teaching when my semester begins, albeit, still a bit sore.
But I'll TAKE IT!

So is it the donor or lawyers causing delay? Our ED was super prompt, the lawyers needed some reminding :)
Congrats on November transfer!

ask and you shall receive...good job! I saw that you had seen Dr. Sahakian previously. How ironic! We used him in 2009 with my niece when she was our egg donor. She only saw him twice but he prescribed all her beds, did ultrasounds, etc. I spoke to him on the phone a few times and he seemed extremely professional and knowledgeable. We eventually went to India for retrieval and transfer. Small world. 11/18 is just around the corner. GOOD LUCK.

I will hope all this goes according to plan. Why did you switch doctors if the first two went so well?

@Jeff&Kevin- not sure if the ED never got the original email or not, either way I've let my agency know that they should talk with their legal team to make sure people are following up, especially when people aren't returning things in a timely manner.

@Madge- my agency no longer works with Dr. S, unless the IPs have used him in the past. They used to work with 3 or so different RE's that I know of, now mostly one and sometimes Dr. S or Ringler, if IPs were already there before.
