Hurray, this is the start of IVF cycle number three.  We will be using one of our six remaining frozen embryos (blastocysts) around mid October and the time until then will be used to prepare my body to hopefully accept it.

It was all rather short notice as I mentioned yesterday, so I hadn’t had time to think about what it might involve.
