That's right, I finally got my FET calendar today. I have been not so patiently waiting for this for what seems like forever, and I have to say...I'm a little upset. When we first decided to cancel my transfer and try again, we threw around some potential dates all based upon when my next period would arrive. I was banking on the idea that since my period came earlier than expected...twice that surely my calendar would be pushed forward at least by a few days, but NO. We are still set for Friday, May 14th. UGH!

The protocol is a new one for me. I will be curious to see how it all plays it out and if I will experience and side effects with the new medications, I guess time will tell. Here are the details of the protocol:

CD1- start estrace 2mg 2x day vaginally, 1 baby aspirin daily

Mondays and Thursdays - .25mg delestrogen IM injection (I had the first one tonight...ouch!)

CD10- add Viagra suppositories 4x day

CD21- E2 check (blood work) and lining check ultra sound (I am VERY anxious about this one)

CD23- stop Viagra, begin tetracyline and medrol, start endometrin suppositories 3x a day

CD28- Embryo Transfer!!!

So if all goes according to plan (and really when does that ever happen?), I guess I will meet my beautiful embryos for the first time in 26 days.


  1. Hooray for a calendar! We'll all be on the countdown to embryo meeting with you :)

  2. ooh yea!
    im so happy it came :o)
    i can't wait to hear about every bit of your journey. and i can't wait to meet your embryos either! are you going to share pics?
    and thanks for understanding and even being able to relate to my post. it would seem that many either didn't like it or didn't know what to say because there wasn't much in the way of feedback and i am really conflicted. i guess that most girls don't hang around saying their IVFs are gonna work...*sigh* i can't win


  3. Yay for getting your calendar! Sending tons for GL your way!!

  4. Whoo-hoo! I am so glad you are moving again! Yay!!

  5. Yay for the calendar! I can understand your frustration with getting pushed back ~ I went through those same emotions when my FET was moved from March to April. At least you got a calendar though right?! :)
    I will be cheering you on from the sidelines.
