I finally got the nurse to call me back from my REs office. It actually wasn't my 'normal' nurse, as mine is on vacation - and I really liked her better. I explained my problem. That I started my cycle on 6/29. The plan was to start me on Lupron on CD 21. That the doc submitted his protest to the insurance decision on 6/29. And that it would take 2 - 3 weeks to get an answer. And, that Dr. N wouldn't start me on Lupron unless we had been preventing. Therefore, at this point, we need to decide to prevent or not prevent.
Aaron is all for not preventing. We aren't going on the pill, since my cycles are so regular, so I'll let you all guess why he isn't a fan of our method of preventing. Men.
I'm on the fence. Do I want to wait another month, if, by some miracle, I get approved in 2 weeks and not 3? But, if I wait another month, it gives us another shot at conceiving on our own and avoiding the whole IVF thing.... and, it assures me that I can go with my future SIL on her bachlorette trip to Disney on Aug. 10th.
We talked about it over dinner, and we'll just start everything next month. I should get AF on the 27th, start lupron on the 17th... with an ER in Sept. If it all works, maybe I'll get a BFP for my birthday on Sept 18th!
For my weight loss and exercise goals, I have reached the weight that I need to be according to my doc minus 2 pounds (for a total of 15 pounds lost since April, 33 pounds lost since April of 2006!). I actually took last week off from yoga, as I went up to the cabin - and there isn't a store within a 40 minute drive, no matter a yoga studio! I did go for a bunch of walks, and ate well, so that was good. And, went to yoga last night for the first time in a week... ouch. Now that I have another month and a half before all this IVF stuff starts, I'm going to work on losing at least another 5 pounds. I've also pledged to walk 300 miles between now and Sept 30th. It sounds like a lot - but is totally doable if I continue walking every day at lunch.
