updates and a gameplan

Really, I'm not sure why I haven't been posting. Or more specifically, I'm not sure why I haven't been motivated to post. For this, I apologize.

On Tuesday (CD17), I had blood drawn and an ultrasound at my local clinic. Based on the ultrasound, it appeared that I had recently ovulated (which I pretty much knew). My lining was 9.1mm! My progesterone came back at 3, which is a good starting point post-ovulation.

When my NYC clinic called me later that afternoon with my blood work results, they informed me that my transfer will be happening on Saturday. They were thinking I ovulated on Monday. Even though Saturday would only be five days post-ovulation, I went with it. I had a slight feeling that transfer should be Sunday instead, given the fact that I have embryos that were frozen on day 6. But what do I know?

I went in Thursday (CD19) for more blood work. I was quite nervous about this blood work, given my progesterone problems last cycle (if you recall, the day before transfer my progesterone was only 11!). But, I needn't have worried. My progesterone came back a lovely 18.4, and my estradiol was 142.

But, I was also informed that my transfer is now on Sunday.

No big deal, right?

Unfortunately I had already booked my flight and my place to stay. I ended up getting everything sorted out, but it cost me an extra $350 (not to mention some severe frustration with Expedia). And I'm staying at a different hotel each night. But, it's ok. I can deal.

My current med cocktail is as follows:
  • Baby aspirin
  • Prentatal vitamin
  • Fish oil (liquid... yum!)
  • Dexamethasone 0.5mg
  • Estradiol 2mg
  • Crinone 8% (twice daily)
So, that's the update! I will definitely be updating after my transfer, as I'll be taking it easy in the hotel room all evening.

I'm excited, and nervous. I just really, really, really want this to work.
