Yesterday afternoon we had a POA appointment with our FS for our next treatment. Initially this appointment was made cos we were due to kick off IVF #3 in September but we need to delay this and had the POA appointment booked so we thought what the hey, we’ll go anyway put a plan in place and when we’re ready for it we’ll move full steam ahead with it.
Cos our chromosonal and HLA tests came back all clear we’re going to do the following:
Menopur & cetrotide stim, IVF + Intralipids drip,gestone progesterone support, clexane injections and hope and pray that this one is *the* one!
On the downside my body did not play ball this month and I’m on day 42. Our FS’s concern is that my endo is returning cos my last lap was in March 2008 and my endo was really severe and agressive at that stage. He did a scan and we’ve picked up what could be an endo issue on my right ovary. He wants me to get my period and re-scan so we can re-evaluate and decide on whether I need another lap or not.
Cliff and I have been thinking of this a LOT, and we’ve decided that I should have a lap. I would hate to do a treatment based on an ultrasound diagnosis, have it fail and then go for a lap and find endo. We would end up kicking ourselves and have wasted a good 40 odd thousand rand.
On the plus side I did have a corpoeous luteum on my left side which means I did manage to ovulate on my own for once!!!!!!! This is HUGE! *I told Cliff we should have had sex ;)*
So my dears it seems that lap # 3 is imminent and sometime thereafter fresh IVF # 3. I’m hoping that if in numerology (have not googled it cos in my mind this is already a *sign* – 3rd lap and 3rd IVF = success!) the number 3 is way cool that this means we’ll finally achieve our dream of having a Clam to add to our family.
