Hey MissFitzy,

We faxed our referal on Mar. 25 and got our first appt. on Apr. 19. It probably took them 2-3 weeks to call for the appt. date though. I know 2 people with PCOS who got pg with Dr. Cooke but none with IVF yet. They are very organized and do lots of preliminary testing. It took us about 2 months before we started cycling but it was worth it in my opinion. The clinic is very busy so I find it odd that no one is on the boards. Keep in touch and let me know how you make out!

We just got all of our test results back yesterday. Now we are on the cycle monitoring phase. We have been pregnant twice but miscarried both times. I'm not quite sure what the cycle monitoring is but we aren't going to the information session. I've got to go in within the next few days, I think, for the first cycle monitoring session/test(?).

Thank you. Yes, we will be doing the timed one. But not until January probably. It's all so new and scary yet the end result will be worth it.
