Ok…..after my last post, I pretty much gave up on this FET #4. My lining was only measuring 3.6mm…barely…and with fluid in it…and maybe even some blood my RE said…great. So I went to this last appt Friday(after being on Estradiol Valerate shots for 21 days!) thinking that he would tell me to forget this cycle and take some progesterone to induce a period…like I’ve done every…other…time…

Hmm…well, I went in and he said…”Interesting”….I thought…I’ll take “interesting?!” Shoot, I’ll take, “that’s odd”, “I’ve never seen that before”, “weird”…..any of that! So, it’s not great…but my lining is growing a little bit :)!!! It’s up to 5mm πŸ™‚

Now…it’s “not pretty”…my RE’s words…thanks Doc…it STILL has a lot of fluid in it and it’s only measuring 5mm on one side…not the other….weird…..yeah…it’s ugly…but I will seriously take ANY growth(as long as it’s my lining and not some polyp or something) He said that it was lining…so we will continue until next Tues…and see if it grows more πŸ™‚

I’m pretty excited about this little growth…I’m REALLY hoping that something is actually working. I’m doing SO much….I have no clue what it could be…but this is what I’ve been doing for my other “thin lining” girls:

  • Estradiol Valerate shots every 3 days 1cc
  • Estradiol Suppositories 1mg:2-3 times a day
  • Pre-natal Vitamin 2 times day
  • Pentoxifylline (Trental) 400mg 2 times a day
  • Vitamin E 400 mg 2 times a day
  • Vitamin E 200mg(vaginally)—I just decided to do this on my own because I figure it wouldn’t hurt to get Vitamin E closer to help heal my damaged lining?? Maybe it’s working?? Or maybe I’m nuts…
  • Wobenzyme(supposed to help with breaking up scar tissue)
  • Vitamin C 500mg 2 times day
  • Vitamin D 2000mg day
  • DHA
  • 8 Treasures(cleanse the blood??) Herbs from acupuncturist
  • Acupuncture 1 week
  • Walking 1 mile day
  • Praying…and thanking God for everything I have…(and those babies that I will have soon!!)

O.K…I also went to a Chinese Healer…I am officially crazy. A friend went to him for her knee…so I thought…I’ll go to him for my uterus…totally normal….it was weird…like a weird massage….and I paid him for that?! But, I’m seriously trying EVERYTHING….damn lining GROW!

O.k….I think that is all for now…I’ll update again on Tues…I’m asking for at least 7mm…come on lucky 7!

  1. I have to say that growth gives me so much hope for you! That’s something to be thankful for! Grow uterus lining!! GROW damn it!! πŸ™‚ I’ll be thinking about you and praying for the 7mm. Is it totally crazy to pray for someone else’s lining??? Ummm.. yeah, but I’ll do that for you! πŸ™‚

  2. I hope your lining keeps growing! I almost went to a Chinese healer before going to IVF but changed my mind at the last second because of other medications I take for my PCOS. The one I was going to see was a herbalist though. I wonder if there’s one that does massages by me? I’ll have to look into it!

    • Thanks so much A! Yes, this Healer was on Ripley’s Believe it or Not…so he heals with his hands apparently….and maybe it worked?! We will see…thanks for your comment and best of luck with your retrieval(unless you’ve already had it?!)! xoxo

    • Thank you rainbowsupabove! Lining issues are the worst πŸ™ The RE’s just don’t know what to do with us…so I’m taking it in my own hands…I’ve tried it all and will keep trying until my lining gets thick enough for a transfer…good luck to you friend! xoxo

  3. I was never able to get a thick lining with estrace and always had fluid. After a bunch of cancelled cycles due to thin lining, my doctor put me on premarin and I was able to get a lining of 7 (or a 6.5 that was rounded up to 7 by the ultraound tech). I was able to get pregnant with a 7 mm lining and have a healthy boy. It’s worth asking about, not everyone needs a super cushiony lining!! Good Luck!

    • Thanks for the suggestion Carrie. I think I’ll have to try Premarin…I am open to everything! So happy you were able to get pregnant and deliver your healthy baby boy with a 7mm lining…I’m hoping to get up to 7 one day!! Thank you! xoxo
