The Plan

It looks we finally have a plan......Yeah!!!!

After talking with the nurses at the clinic today we have tentatively decided on a plan and timeline for our IVF journey.

There are several things that need to happen before we begin.....
1- I was just put on Synthroid- and they want to wait at least 4 weeks to see if my levels get back to normal.
2- I need to have a colonoscopy due to some birth defects in my intestines that have been giving me some trouble. So we want to get that done before we get pregnant (because we WILL this time)
3- I need to have a hydrosonogram. I have already had one of these, but they want to make absolutely sure that there is nothing wrong with the uterine cavity as to why we are not getting pregnant. And for that I am thankful.
4-- I am going to try to loose some weight. The doctor's do not think it has anything to do with not getting pregnant, but it cant hurt and I could definitely stand to loose a few. HA HA

So with all of that said, we are shooting for the end of June to begin the IVF cycling, and looking to have embryos transferred in July. We have 8 months from when we begin to do the four cycles once we start.

So that is where we are at this point. I am pretty excited about it actually!!! Something to look forward to, and by Christmas, I hope to be pregnant!!!

Thanks again for all the prayers......we can feel them!!!


  1. Yay for a plan! That always makes me feel better!! That is great news, and I'll keep praying!!

  2. Very happy for you Heather. You deserve it!
