*Questions for those who have done IVF*



I was told at one point, you go in to be monitored everyday (ultrasound/levels etc) is this true and at what point did you go? After both injections were done, or in between the two (or more)? I'm confused and just wanted to get a rough estimate in my head to see when I would be going everyday.

I've been MIA lately! Way busy with work...



I didn't get the job... it turns out they over hired :( I was way bummed. I've been job searching every day and I haven't heard back from anything. Boo...



On the TTC front... I'm on 9dpo.... awaiting AF. I think DH is still ready to do IUI this next cycle even though the job fell through. I was thinking tho... I think we're going to have to hire a nanny, which I'm not too happy about. I wish I could stay home.

I just confirmed.... I am working Christmas evening shift (3pm to 11:30pm). It's time and a half and Jace will be with his sperm donor so it won't be too bad.

Oh so sorry about the job. Bummer :(. Glad DH is still with going with IUI next cycle. Did you order your donor sperm yet?



I wish I lived near you! I would so be your nanny :)

Well.... move :) We haven't ordered it yet. We have to get one more paper signed and notarized. I hope we can do that Saturday. Then everything will go off to OHSU! :)



Oh well about the job.... I guess it just wasn't meant to be. I've been looking like crazy in my spare time that I don't have.

It was every day or every other day and it was soon after starting stims. They need to know whether to adjust you up or down.

Okay thanks Amelia!!



I know it's not the same everywhere but did they make you come in at random times or was it the same time everyday?

It was the same time every day but I don't think it had to be that way. That's just the way it worked with mine and my sister's schedules.

My boss is kind of pissed that I have to go for monitoring ( yeah shes being kind of cold about our infertility and December is her busiest month at work) so I was just curious if they did it the same time so I could work around my work schedule.

Interestingly enough, she claims her son was a "miracle" and never thought she would get pregnant or was told she may never- she had him late in life. So you'd think she would be more sympathetic.

LOL I know!!! But she can kick rocks because I'm not planning my life around her "busy schedule"... She can find other people to help her.
