My levels were drawn again today. E2=2,222 after weaning down to 1 patch, so I was told to take the last patch off today! Only 1 Estrace tablet to go. Yay! P4>60 still, so I weaned down to 2 Prometriumsupps. Re-checking levels on Wednesday. I'm tired of the 2-3 blood draws per week, but at the same time, I like the escalated weaning procedure. I have to be OOT for work beginning week of Jan. 25 with no ability to get b/w drawn whatsoever. So, I think they wanted to kick it in high gear. Yippee! Maybe I'll be off everything before I leave for my business trip! A girl can hope!
I am 34 years old (Steve is 43). It took us almost 2 years to conceive our boys, which were born on July 12, 2009.
We began working with a local fertility specialist in 2007 and failed 2 IUIs and 2 IVFs with them.
We switched clinics in June 2008 to the Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine (CCRM). Our overall problem was poor embryo quality. We participated in CCRM's microarray genetic testing study for IVF#3. We transferred 2 genetically normal boys on 11-28-08. First ever positive pregnancy test on 12-3-08!!! First u/s on 12-26-08 revealed twins!!
Thanks for reading my blog and learning about our journey!
