reemergence

I have emerged from the depths of "woe is me" and am currently basking in the hope of an upcoming cycle.

For Easter, I got my period. And I was completely fine with it.

I have not had a normal cycle (28 or 29 days) since the miscarriage. Until now. Even though last cycle was only 27 days, I'll take it. Closer to normal.

I went in this morning for my CD3 blood draw and ultrasound. Once the ultrasound party got started, I instantly knew this cycle would be better than last.

No cysts! First time post-miscarriage. I'll take that as a good sign.

My hormone levels are "great":
  • FSH - 5
  • E2 - 56
  • LH - 3.3
  • FSH - 5
So, it's looking like my next FET will be the last week of April.

And I'm excited. Once again.

It's amazing how quickly I can bounce back after heartache when I have something to look forward to.

Something else I'm looking forward to:


One of those is my new puppy! They were born this past Friday. Three big, healthy puppies. I'm in love and I've only seen their cute little butts!

The litter consists of two girls and one boy. One of the girls is already promised. Additionally, the breeder will be keeping one of the pups for a show dog. She will make that decision when they get to be 7 or 8 weeks. So, until then, we won't know if we are getting a boy or a girl. I'm happy either way, honestly!

I will keep you updated with photos as I get them.

  9. Wow! Those puppies are going to be beautiful doggies. This post is so upbeat, I am exactly the same and can bounce back happy as soon as there is something awesome to look forward to again. Always moving toward something is a good thing so you don't dwell on the past. Very exciting times ahead :-)

  12. Those puppies' little butts are cute!

    Just reading your post today reminded me of how quickly we do bounce back from failure and turn our focus to bigger and better things. I had forgotten about that part of infertility. Thank you for the reminder! I needed that as we gear up for a cycle this summer.

    Best of luck with the next FET. They sure move you from one to the next quickly. That's great! My clinic makes us cycle in between, which drives me crazy.

  16. I read "three healthy puppies" and thought, "but aren't there four?" Took me a second glance to figure out that what I thought was a pup was actually the mama's leg.

    It's so nice to have something to look forward to, and I'm glad you do.

  17. Glad to see you're in good spirits. Fingers crossed for you on your next FET. Those pups are just adorable! I swear I'd own like 10 dogs if I could. But in reality we can only have the two we have.

  22. Hey, we'll be transfer buddies! My ER is the last week of April, ET end of April/beginning of May. I hope this time around is 'the one' for both of us!

    Those are some cute puppy butts! Do you ever watch the show Too Cute! on Animal Planet? It's ridiculously cute and addicting. It's great mindless TV that will make you smile. It has to be good stress relief.
