We have DATES!!

It is all on track - we have had the counselling, all the blood tests and I have had a hystercopy (after my fibroid op - RE wanted to make sure all is hunky dory in there - and it is!!)

My sister and I both taking the pill - and start sniffing this Friday July 4th - we stop taking the pill on July 13th - go for our scans on the 17th of July (my sister's birthday - would you believe) - then she starts 175 gonal f - and I start taking prognova (to increase linging) - we both have scan on the 22nd of July - and then possible OPU on July 28th.

It is weird doing this donor cycle with my sister - it feels a little like I am having a baby with her - rather than my husband - though he would be horrified to hear me say that.

He was not really into my two previous IVF cycles - and it feels great to have someone 'in it' with me.

I am trying not to want to 'micro manage' this cycle - I want to tell my sister to stop taking the pill the day before they want us to - I want to tell her to cut back her sniffing on the first few days of injection - and to increase the dose to 200 on those first crucial days. BUT I AM NOT GOING TO.

I am going to let go of control and let her do just what the doctor wants - and try and let whatever happens happen. My big plan anyway.
