5 weeks, but who's counting??

Me! I'm counting! Each and every day!

I called CCRM again today. When I first was told the 4-6 week waiting time frame, I decided I would try to be patient (at least until 4 weeks were up). Of course, 4 weeks came and went last Wednesday and I broke down and made the call. One week later here I am, so I made another call. Here's the skinny:

While my new cycle hasn't begun yet, I got one of the nurses to go ahead and order my BCPs for pick-up in the next few days. Also, I convinced her to give me some potential dates for our transfer. They let us ultimately choose the date, but she started with some dates the week of Thanksgiving-just as I had originally hoped! WOOHOO! So, we get to choose a day during Thanksgiving week or the following first week of December. Needless to say, I'll be searching the internet for flights the rest of this evening. That will probably be the ultimate deciding factor on which date we'll choose.

After writing all of the above, I realize how optimistic this all sounds. We haven't even gotten our Micro-array results back yet. I have no idea if we'll even have 1 genetically normal to transfer. But, I really, really hope so...

I don't blame you for calling: I can't imagine having to wait this long for results!

That's great that you're so optimistic! Hopefully it all goes perfectly.

Hi Jill, I'm a new CCRMer and have been watching your blog with great interest! I can hardly wait to hear how many good blasts you made. I am in the same position as you, where I've never made ANY blasts with any of my cycles before -- so we decided to try CCRM as our last hope and see if we get some of that magic from thier lab. Your story gives me SUCH HOPE that it's possible to make no blasts anywhere else, but make them at CCRM!!!! I'm so happy for you and can't wait to hear about your final CGH report.
GOOD LUCK!!
