OMG...IVF #1 is starting!!!

I went in today for my IVF consult with my RE and it is official we are starting IVF#1!! I am starting BCP's tonight! Basically it came down to start now (I am on CD 3) or wait until the clinics next series of IVF which wont be until the beginging of next year. So here we go!! I can not believe this is acutally happening, I dont even think it has really hit me yet. I feel such a sense of relief and hope just thinking that I COULD be pg next month!! The dr. said that we are on the high end of the success rate due to my age, so thats great, but again there is no garuntee that the first try will work. But I am feeling very confident about all of this for the first time ever.

The hardest part to swollow is the costs. It is going to cost us $10,050 for the IVF itself, plus another 1800-3500 for the mediacation that goes along with it. And that is for ONE try. All I can do is pray that it works.

So tomorrow I should be getting a call from the IVF coordinator who will give my schedule and dates, next monday I have my sono mock, then in the next 2-3 weeks I will have my teaching visit. I can't tell you how happy I am!!!

I can not believe this is happening, I am SOOO excited but also very nervous. This is no small procdure...we are pulling out the big guns here! IVF here we come....

We're going to be on almost the exact schedule. I am going to be on bcp's for at least 2 weeks longer and am looking at my ER/ET at the end of October. OH my gosh....what a cool thing to experience this at the same time. Wow, I can't believe how fast things are going for you. Hold on, pray and know that though a stressful process, it will go fast once it's started and we could be pregnant soon!
PS- my sono is on Tuesday the 23rd!

I know how cool is that!?! I was acutally going to post on your blog about us cycling together. I hope this is it for the both of us, and it is nice to know I have someone to turn to who is going through the same thing.
