I've had a crazy busy week and haven't had a chance to post yet. Soo, on Thursday (12/5) I had my second lining check and bloodwork.
Lining- 8 luscious mm
Oopsie. Apparently my estrogen was a teensy bit on the low side. They like it to be over 100. No wonder I wasn't feeling completely crazy in the head yet. ha. And so in addition to my lovely estrogen patches that are a complete pain to redo every other day (they are made to stay on for a week, so taking them off after 2days tends to remove some skin too. lol!), I got to add a pill. Orally, for the record.
Since I was a bit on the low side, FCI asked that I go back today (Monday 12/9) to get another check rather than wait for my normal appt on 12/12. And so off I went to visit the vampires yet again.
Have I mentioned the Wienie wand? I had to take my 5yo with me to my appt on Thursday due to him having a dr appt far away afterwards. So I sat him in the chair next to the u/s table and gave him his DS.
Anyhoo back to the weinie wand. Maybe it's just me but anytime the u/s tech tries to find my left ovary, it hurts like the very dickens! I flinch and try to crawl away from her every darn time. BLAH..
Lining - a plump 10.7 mm (anything over 8 is good)
Estrogen- 211 (anything over 100 is good).
The clinic nurse said everything looks PERFECT.. And so now the real countdown begins.
10 days til transfer !!!

2 ish months of BCPs
17 lupron shots
13 vivelle patches (estrogen)
