I've been summoned...

by the county I live in to serve as a juror. Normally, I would be happy to oblige, but the week I'm scheduled to be there is the week I'll be stimming. I have no idea if I'd be able to have all my monitoring appointments done by 7:30am. My county does things a little differently than the other counties I've lived in. They require you to serve for a whole week, or for the duration of a trial, whichever is longer. The best part is, you have to call each night to see if you are in the 8:30am shift or the 1:30pm shift or both. Not something a commuter can really do. So I'm going to have to plead "Hardship" this time around and hope that they can reschedule me for later in the year.

Now, onto more important issues...my protocol. Got my schedule in the mail the other day (I had them mail it since I didn't need injection training again). I will be doing the BCP/Low Dose Long Lupr0n protocol:

Begin bcp 7/2 - done
Last BCP 7/22
Start Lupr0n (10 units) 7/22 once per day btwn 7 & 10pm
Once I get my Lupr0n period I'll start stims on day 3
F0llistim 225iu & Men0pur 75iu once per day btwn 7 & 10pm
Reduce Lupr0n to 5 units daily
ER should be sometime around 8/12 or so
Night of ER - Begin baby aspirin
3 days post ER - PI0 injections and suppositories start (yuck not looking forward to this)
6 days post ER - Start Viv.elle patches
PG test will be 12 days after 3 day transfer or 10 days after 5 day transfer

Now I have to call my RE's office and find out when I can expect the big box o'love in the mail.

Definitely get out of jury duty if you can. I would even call ahead of time instead of waiting for that week. You just don't need the added stress while you're stimming.

Yay for getting your calendar!

I think you won't have any problem getting out of the jury duty. I'm thinking all the best for this cycle!

Amy -

How funny - I just had the exact same dilemma! I was very disappointed that I had to postpone jury duty as I haven't been called up in over 10 years.

EXCITING!!! I just started my job when I was called for Jury Duty! So perhaps this is a good omen...cause my job is still going strong. So maybe that is the secret...jury duty at inopertune times :)

I was (am) on the same protocol. Be CAREFUL of OHSS. Make them keep an close eye. It seems as though us PCOS people have a tendancy toward hyper ovaries.

I am one to like jury duty too, but I haven't got called in a long time. It figures it lands when you are stimming!
