Decision Day. Lining 7.3!

FET is a go!!

Last week, the ultrasound revealed a triple layer lining at 5.8mm. Today, just five days later, the lining was at 7.3 and our doc felt good about moving forward with the transfer. The human growth hormone was added to my protocol after some new research came out in December of 2017. Maybe it was that. Maybe it was the time off from treatments. Either way, God is in control and whatever happens is for the best. We may not understand it, but He knows better than us.

We trigger tomorrow, then switch to other meds, cutting out the pentoxy, viagra, and vitamin E, adding progesterone every day and hcg shots every couple days for a week. After transfer, I’ll also add lovenox shots. After meeting with my doc today, I did an intralipid infusion. The IV needle is never fun, but it really wasn’t a big deal. The taste of the intralipid is so strange. Why do I taste it when it’s put straight into my blood? Crazy.

Super bloated and craving chocolate. Even had a dream that I ate a deliciously soft, even fluffy chocolate cookie AND a brownie….. with a panic attack soon to follow due to “messing everything up” but then I woke up. Whew. ;) I have the most vivid dreams on IVF meds.


FET is a go!

Lining was at 8.6 and they like to see it greater than 8, so we are on for our FET (frozen embryo transfer) next Tuesday! HCG trigger shot today will be followed by some boosters along the way over the next 10 days. Estradiol level tested today, too.

I asked the nurse today to draw some circles on my “hips/buttocks” where we should be aiming for the PIO shots “because I’m a bit of a control freak and for my peace of mind.” She just laughed and grabbed a marker. So we will be tracing those for the next few weeks at least. 

Our clinic is amazing. I LOVE our doctor. He met with us yesterday and gave us some perspective that we didn’t have before. We are both feeling good about where we are and I’m finally letting myself get a little excited. 6 days!
