Today is a special cycle day 1 because it marks the end of regular TTC and IUI, and the beginning of IVF. I’m not feeling too sad because I had very little hope for this last natural cycle. Instead, I’m allowing myself to feel excited and optimistic about IVF. Tomorrow is our big appointment with our RE and our nurse to discuss IVF protocol and ask all our IVF questions. Then I’ll go on birth control for 2.5 weeks before a technically new cycle begins and I start stimming. I’ll post an update on our protocol when I find out the details tomorrow.
