I ended up back at ART Friday morning for baseline blood work (FSH-follicle stimulating hormone, LH-luteinizing hormone, and E2-estrogen) and a baseline ultrasound. All of my hormones were in normal range and my ultrasound looked good with at least 15 antral follicles on each ovary, no ovarian cysts, and a good uterine lining. All this means that my body is ready to start meds which I will do this Monday. Another perk of Letrazole (femara) other than a decrease in all the side effects is it cost under $5.00- Hallelujah!
If I don't have any problems next week my next appointment will be next Saturday morning at 8:15 in the Birmingham office. Yep that means we'll be up and on the road bright and early. The Montgomery office is closed on the weekends so if any of my monitoring days fall on the weekend we must head to Brookwood Hospital (main ART location).
That's it for now. Hope everyone is enjoying this rainy weekend- relaxing somewhere!
