So as of right now this second my ER is scheduled for Friday at 9:30am. That could change to Saturday when my labs come back this afternoon. RE is now back to saying he is almost certain that we will hold off on the ET and do an FET at a later date. It all depends on what he sees when he goes "inside". He said if that is the case we will wait for ovaries to go down, do the lap and then to the FET. All in all he said FET by June.

Has anyone else gone through that same scenario?
How long will it take for my ovaries to go down?
How long will it take to recover from lap?
Does "by June" sound like an accurate time frame?

Also a friend told me that a women is more fertile after a lap because they strip the lining which makes it easier for the embryo to stick.....is that true?

Sorry for all the questions. This is so stressful. I hate not having a plan or knowing what is going on. With my body is screwy just when I think something is going to happen we come across another problem.

Hey, thanks for updating us! I'm glad that things are looking good for the retrieval, and I'll keep my fingers crossed that you get lots of mature, healthy eggs.

I haven't been in this scenario before, and I'm not sure how the situation differs from how your ovaries go down if you get pregnant after an IVF. I do know that I was put on pelvic rest (no hanky panky) because my ovaries were enlarged, and I wasn't released from that until 7.5 weeks after the retrieval.

As far as lap recovery goes, I didn't think it was bad at all. I had my lap on a Thursday morning, and felt pretty good that evening. I never took the narcotics they gave me...just ibuprofen a couple of times. Saturday night I went out to dinner with friends and I felt okay...my only problem was that I wore jeans that rubbed on my incision and it really hurt to stand up and sit down...so don't make that mistake I was back to working and feeling pretty normal the Monday after the surgery, and one week post-lap I flew to visit DH and we "got reacquainted" without any troubles.

I have also heard that you are more fertile after a lap...I hope so!

I am so happy that you will be able to have your ER on Friday!! I agree that IVF is a pain... I am the same way.. I hate not having a definitive plan and all the suprises. Whichever way it goes (transfer this month or a FET) it will be here before you know it... Of course that is muuuuchhh easier to say... Hang in there and make sure to KUP!!!
