IVF Timeline

This is not an exact timeline for my wife and I since they do not include the preparing of my uterus for pregnancy... but I will be preparing my uterus as my wife completes the following steps with various pills, patches, and vaginal inserts (yum :-P). ONE WEEK UNTIL OUR APPOINTMENT!!! Based on the timeline we are looking at late March or early April to do a transfer and hopefully achieve a pregnancy!
