We have our dates

The nurse called last week and ran through all the important dates with me - and we got home from work today to find the planning sheet in the mail. Made it seem quite real! So, here are some of those dates and what happens on them:

28th April - meeting with the nurse to learn how to inject myself, mix the drugs, and bring the drugs home.
30th April - stop taking the contraceptive pill (used to hold the body in a state of readiness)
3rd May - first day of injections (two injections daily of Buserelin)
5th May - addition of a daily injection of Gonal F
8th May - first blood test to check estrogen levels
10th May - First scan to check follicle growth
15th May - All going well, expected week of egg collection (actual date to be decided following tests and scans to check follicle development).

It's starting to feel quite close now - only 2 weeks till the first injections!

Ohhhhh that's so exciting!!!

Aside from the having to give yourself injections bit.. hmmm. Still, small price to pay!!

...and just think, surely you get to reward yourself with chocolate or icecream after each one??!!

Or Rupert buys you a present???

He he he... XXX CAT
