I’ll admit…I’m a little behind….but I’m catching you all up on everything now….
All of this has taken SOOOO long, I feel like I’ve waited and waited and waited…..(o.k…I have)
To finally get to a real chance at a transfer. Like a good chance.
For the past couple of years, I would take all of the meds, pay all of the fees and go through all of the shots, ultrasounds, etc….and then when most got a chance at a transfer….I got a pity look and the same result…my lining was too thin….and not 7mm thin…..I’m talking 4-5mm(at the thickest)…with ALL of the estrogen, suppositories, viagra, trental, pom juice, pineapple core, acupuncture, herbs (add in any other lining “tricks”), etc..
Unfortunately, it just doesn’t grow.
I have had numerous(8+ cancelled FET’s), 3 failed full IVF cycles and one transfer in a 5.5mm lining because I was desperate and selfish(and still regret even doing that 🙁 ).
We are now on this new plan (with my angel of a sister as our gestational carrier 🙂 ) and it is in the process…as we speak!
- My sister had her baseline, a little over a week ago(which was good!) and started her estrogen(yay!).
- She had a lining check last Friday, being on 5 days of estrogen and her lining was already 7.1mm(yes!!!)
- We had another lining check today and it’s 8.7mm(yipee!!!!!!!)
- She starts progesterone injections tomorrow(which she is terrified about….sorry sis!)
- And we will have a transfer ONE WEEK FROM YESTERDAY! In less than a week!!
6 days!!!! I know!!!!!!!!!! Ahhhhhhh!!!!!!!!
I left you all out of the loop for far too long…but now we are caught up!!!!
It’s been kinda weird though because I personally haven’t been doing much fertility related. No appointments for me. No shots. No meds. Nada.
I’ve been the cheerleader, scheduler, chauffeur(she lives 7 hrs drive away and flies here for every appointment!), etc….I’ve been overwhelmed but so thankful that all seems to be going as planned 🙂
When I saw that after only 5 days of estrace her lining was already 7.1mm….and then her lining today at 8.7mm….I seriously cried….I’ve never had a lining measurement that thick and to know that my embryos are going to have a chance at life just makes me so hopeful….
So that’s where we are at!
I will update you once we get closer but next week at this time…we should be PUPO!!!!(God willing!!)
Ahhhhhhh!!! (Can you tell I’m a little excited!!!)
Thank you all for your continued love and support!
I’ll update again soon!! xoxo
