Well hmmmmm . . . .

Okay people. I should have started my cycle by now. By my count, 4 days ago. Let's get one thing clear -- I know I'm not pregnant (don't mean to imply God isn't still in the miracle business by that statement, but I'm not). I'm a little worried that if I start over the weekend that I will miss my chance for the beginning of the cycle bloodwork and ultrasound and then we'll get pushed back another month for IVF . . . yikes! Maybe I call the clinic tomorrow and see what they think? I just hate to be that neurotic patient (any more than I already am). Maybe I just wait it out and count it as character development in patience? Maybe I make the trek to CVS to drop $12 to confirm what I already know (don't worry, not doing that)? I wouldn't be so concerned except we have a friend's wedding at the end of next month and I really don't want to miss it . . . although obviously I get the priorities in any decision on that front.

Advice, please?!

I would call the doc for sure. Our doctor's office takes calls 24/7 and they are open all but two days of the year (Thanksgiving and Christmas). Call 'em! :)

Oh no question I would call the doctor! Lord knows we pay them enough to deal with us and our many questions! :)

I am sure they have a plan for people who start on a weekend, but you need to know what it is!

People start new cycles on the weekend all the time, so clinics are prepared to handle that. The initial bloodwork and u/s can really be done anywhere between days 2 and 5, so you should be fine. So say you start on Sat. and call Mon. morning and they can't squeeze you in for "day 3" baseline checks that day... well, then they'll get you in on day 4 or 5. But it's also totally fine to call the office; they should be capable of handling our questions!
