First to update you on this past FET #6…it got cancelled…my lining only got to around 3mm with Tamoxifen and extra estrogen….so Tamoxifen did not work for me and my lining 🙁 So, I just have to keep trying and move on to what’s next.
If you’ve been following my journey, I went through IVF#1 in November 2013 (1 morula embryo vetrified..no transfer, thin lining) and then we went through IVF #2 in January 2014 (6 blastocysts vetrified-no transfer, thin lining) and then month after month after month for over a year we have tried FET’s to grow my lining…and nada…stayed thin…like 4mm…so no transfer…ever.
Well, during both of my IVF cycles I was able to get my lining to about 5.8 or 6mm…..now, that’s not good….and it was not pretty…at all…and my RE didn’t want to transfer because it didn’t look right and he thought that I would be able to grow a thicker lining during an FET…..well, after over a year of trying…it hasn’t happened…
So, this is where IVF #3 comes into play. If I can get some blastocysts…and my lining can get up to 6mm+(please), then we might finally take a shot at transferring an embryo.
I might finally get a chance to transfer an embryo.
I know that doesn’t mean it will work and we will have a baby…BUT…simply to finally have a chance…a chance at being pregnant…that’s all I want.
Now, if my lining doesn’t cooperate then we will be back to square one and I’ll have to try some experimental things but I have a good feeling about this. There’s gotta be a reason why I’m doing another full IVF cycle and I am just going with it. When my RE suggested it, it was almost like I didn’t have a choice. I think after this final cancelled FET…he thought…now what?…looked at my age again(turning 38 this year…boo) and said, “Let’s get some more embryos and your lining was best when we did an IVF cycle.” So that was that.
Now, let’s just pray my body cooperates. I’m doing Estrogen priming(WAY better than BC pills for me!) I have a sonohystogram this Thurs. My period should start this weekend. Then a mock transfer Mon.(I think, unless I still have my period?) And I start stims March 13.
So that’s where I am.
I don’t know what this 3rd IVF cycle will bring. I’m trying to visualize my babies…in my womb. I’ll just keep doing that…until it is real. I’m believing that it will happen.
It will happen!!
Here goes IVF#3….take 3!
