Just a quick update about this FET #6.

I started taking Tamoxifen on 2/2. I took it, once a day for 5 days. On 2/6, I also applied 2 estradiol patches.

And the results today…..nothing.

My lining is non-existent(1mm and with fluid) BUT my follicles are not growing either…weird. Last time, I had 2 follicles around 20mm. That should have produced enough estrogen to grow my lining but it didn’t…only got to 5.1mm.

So we wait. I am to stop the estradiol patches and see if my body will wake up and produce some estrogen on it’s own.

And that’s the update….not exciting but I go back in on Friday to see if anything is going on.

I’ve had my frozen embryos since Nov.2013 and Jan.2014.

And I’ve never had a transfer.

I understand when women get sad, or frustrated when they can’t transfer their embryos in their fresh cycle and have to wait another month for an FET….but over a year?

It’s just not right.

When I go to my RE’s office, I think about them. How long they’ve been frozen there….just waiting too.

Makes me sad when I think too much about it.

But what can I do?

Keep waiting…and praying…gonna do a little more praying.

I just don’t know what else to do.

  1. Every time I read your entries, all I can think is… I want to help her. How can I help?

    You have no idea how many people are rooting for you. The day you announce your pregnancy, I’ll be shouting from the rooftops! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you so much girlsetsfire. I appreciate you wanting to help…and would take you up if you ever have any ideas πŸ™‚ When I get pregnant, I just hope it will show that anything is possible if you just believe πŸ™‚ Thank you for always supporting me πŸ™‚ xoxoxo

  2. So sorry. I can only imagine the frustration. I hope you find the right cocktail soon to get that home ready for your embryos. I imagine you have had a second opinion from another RE?

    • Thanks mamajo23..so, so frustrating…and helpless…like what else can I do? And there’s just not much for thin lining…I have to create my own treatments….but I’ll continue to do so. I’ve had 2 RE’s and numerous other consultations with RE’s from around the world. I’m going to keep going until I find an answer…whenever that may be. Thank you for your support πŸ™‚ xoxo

  3. Oh I am so sorry. I don’t know frustration from this exact situation but I can only imagine how hard it is. I hope you and your Dr. figure out just exactly what you need. You are in my prayers!

    • Thank you so much Amie. It is very frustrating and hard because there are not a lot of options for thin lining….just not many women have this problem…so not many RE’s even know how to approach it…but I’m determined to find a way…where there’s a will, there’s a way..and I’ll find it…thank you for your prayers & support! xoxo

  4. Oh sweetie, this is truly awful stuff. I’m sorry.

    You know the saying, “when you’re going through hell – keep going!”

    You’ll get there in the end and have your little peanut. I have no doubt.

    Take care of you. Sending courage and hugs.

    • Thank you L…and you are right…gotta keep going…I mean, something has to give at some point…right?! I gotta get ONE break with this lining. Regardless, you are right…some day, I will have my baby in my arms and this will all me behind me…if I focus on that..and my child…I can get through this…thank you for your hugs and support πŸ™‚ xoxo

    • Thank you so much My Perfect Breakdown…I definitely feel like I’m gonna be the one to figure this out…sad, I know but these RE’s just don’t know enough about chronically thin lining…all they keep saying is “gestational carrier”…and that’s it πŸ™ And I keep thinking….there’s gotta be something that we haven’t tried…so I’ll keep doing that…until this lining plumps up…it’s gotta happen one way or another…right?! Thank you for always supporting me…been thinking of you too…what we all go through I tell ya….xoxo

  5. Honestly, my first thought was.. ‘What the heck?!?!!” Seriously, I wish more than anything your lining would grow. Sometimes I just wonder why this terrible stuff happens to such good people?! I just know from reading post after post how absolutely amazing you are. It just breaks my heart that you are constantly met with disappointments. But I agree with the first poster.. WHEN you are pregnant I will be rejoicing! I’ll jump for joy and shout from the rooftops. That day will come. Hang on. Sending so much love.

    • Yes…what the heck…is right! Just crap….but life goes on and after reading your post today….I want to live each day “happy” too. And right now…I’m not. I guess in the scheme of life…my lining issues are small. I have so many things to be thankful for…..that I need to appreciate. Some day I will be pregnant…some day…but today I am not and I won’t focus on that…I will focus on the blessings I see every day. Love ya girly…you are my sister(even though we live thousands of miles away) and appreciate the support you always show me πŸ™‚ xoxoxo

      • I love you too! You are truly a wonderful friend and I’m so thankful we ended up finding each other through blogging. It’s so hard to focus on the being happy, but I feel like we are so much alike, we were born optimistic. πŸ™‚ Yes, we are few thousands miles away, but I know I have your support always. I know I can count on you and hope you know the same. πŸ™‚ Sending lots of love.

    • Thank you so much Isabelle…I know you understand too. Just wrapping my brain around it all is tough. So I’ll just let go and see where things take me…appreciate your prayers and continued support πŸ™‚ xoxo

  6. I just wanted to say that I’m so sorry for what you are going through. I have the same issues with my lining, and am getting ready for fresh IVF cycle #2 since FETs just don’t seem to get my lining thick enough. I so wish we knew what could help us! You are in my prayers.

    • Thank you TTCGirl. Aren’t these lining issues just the worst?! Arg! I though about doing an IVF#3 but I might try a mini stimulation cycle just for the lining to see what happens. Please keep me updated…always looking to see what works for us “thin lining” ladies πŸ™‚ Appreciate the prayers and bact at ya for THICK receptive lining πŸ™‚ xoxo

  7. I’m so sorry to hear another woman going through this pain πŸ˜”
    Whilst I don’t suffer quite on the same scale as you my lining let’s me down too
    I’ve been trying to conceive for almost three years and the emotional distress is indescribable
    I had a fresh Ivf cycle which I got to 7.6mm and resulted in BFN
    I then had natural Fet that got to 6.5mm and cancelled
    I then had a medicated Fet that got to 7.2mm but then dropped to 4mm three days later and cancelled
    I had a hysteroscopy and biopsy that showed no problems
    I am now on my third attempt at Fet medicated and got to 7.2mm and have made the decision to go ahead with transfer as I’ve reached the point where I feel like another cancellation and starting from the beginning again would be more stressful than BFN! Crazy right!?

    So whilst it’s not on the same scale as you I do understand the pain of infertility and the pain of battling with your lining πŸ˜”

    I hope you get some results soon x

  8. Have you ever had a cyst in your lining? I also have thin lining and have transferred with lining as low as 6 in the past. At my last scan for a FET (day 22), they found a cyst in the lining measuring about 4 mm. My lining is only 5.2 so it seems significant. RE asked me to come back in a few days for another scan to see where we are. I have done some research, but not a lot comes up on this topic. Since you have had just about everything thrown at you, wondering if you have had this come up?

    PS – I really enjoy (if enjoy is the right word) reading your blog since I suffer from thin lining as well. Best of luck to you, there has to be good news at some point, right?

    • Hi sus121…I have never had a cyst in my lining but maybe you have a polyp? And they just called it a cyst? A polyp should definitely be removed before you put any embryos in your uterus though..very important that it’s not there. Best of luck and keep me updated..thanks for your support! xo
