I went in this morning for my first ultrasound and a blood draw to see how things were looking for our cycle. Assuming everything was in line I would be starting my stimulating hormones today, and we would really be rolling. My ultrasound looked good, but my blood work came back with a high estrogen level. He said that we had to cancel the IVF. That he knows a high estrogen level decreases the success rate with IVF, and he wanted to make sure everything was at its best before we do this. I stay on the Lupron until the end of August, then go in for another ultrasound and blood draw. We are now shooting for the September cycle. I know it is best, but I am heart broken. truly heart broken. We are so ready, and to be told that we have to wait...it is just more than I could take. I left work for the day...I should be better tomorrow. And then we can look forward to September. For today I am just so disappointed and sad.
