Leaving on Monday…..

I got the call from the nurse and I am leaving Monday to go up to syracuse. Tuesday morning we have to be there at 8:00 am for C to give his sample and then they will thaw my 14 eggs :). They like to do a 3 day transfer of frozen eggs so my transfer will be on friday at 10:45 . The nurse said they will let any leftover embroys grow to day 5 and hopefully freeze. I am so excited and so ready to get this show on the road .

Lining check #2

I went in today for my second lining check and it was 7mm today πŸ™‚ So much better then the other day . Usally it stays put around 7-8 and im sure its going to grow some more before the transfer so I am happy with this πŸ™‚ I am just waiting for the out of town coordinator to get back to me regarding all the bloods and she should tell me when the date of defrosting my eggs should be ….Im getting really excited πŸ™‚

Not so good lining check

Well my lining was only at 6 today which was not good at all. Usually we can only get my lining to a 7 and then it won’t budge. The nurse at my clinic said they might have to add Viagra to the mix . She is going to call me later after they get my blood results back . I either have to go in Friday or Monday for a recheck. I just don’t understand why my body won’t cooperate just a little bit. If its not one thing it’s another and I feel like I am just being defeated and maybe I’m not suppose to have my own child. I have so many infertility issues it’s insane. When I first started this journey I thought it was only the endometriosis but then through the process it was always something new that was wrong. How can that be ??? I’m definitely not giving up on this cycle yet. I went to the store and bought some more red raspberry leaf tea. I think I’m going to drown myself in this tea today lol. Hopefully I can go back Friday and it is at least a 7. It only has to grow 1mm in 2 days ……

Lining check tomorrow ….

I’m so nervous for tomorrow’s lining check. I really hope my lining is at least 7 or above. Sometimes it gives me issues and sometimes it does not. I feel like its a game and we wait to see what the score will be lol. I have tried lots of things this time to make sure it is nice and thick. I have drank red raspberry tea, estrace 5 x a day, baby aspirin, blood flow exercises, and lots of vitamins. Hopefully this does the trick πŸ™‚ I can’t believe out of all the procedures and meds during all my cycles the lining check is the one that I am most nervous and scared about. If everything checks out ok tomorrow , I should be starting the progesterone and lovenox. Then hopefully leaving for Syracuse sometime next week πŸ™‚ please pray everything looks perfect tomorrow. I will update tomorrow morning when I get back.


I went in for my baseline today and everything looked perfect. I started my estrace today also and I think I am suppose to start my dexamethasone tomorrow. I have to double check with the nurse. I have to go back on the 10th for a lining check and some more blood work. I hope everything looks good then when I go. Sometimes my lining is a little stubborn and thats why I am on 10mg a day.I am going to try alot of stuff to help build my lining , red rasberry leaf tea, some vitamins, lots of water and massage. we shall see how much it helps. I am getting excited and nervous . I really want everything to go very smoothly but thats is not usally the case lol ….

She finally showed!!!

Last night I was reading about late periods and I came across a couple of websites that say if you know you are not pregnant you can try to induce your period by pushing on certain pressure points. I really don’t believe that stuff cause I feel when AF is ready to show she will but I said to myself I’m gonna try it anyway since there was no harm in it. I pushed on my ankle pressure point. You can find it by feeling the big bone on the inner part of your ankle and going up about 4 fingers and you will find it. I did it a couple of times and then went to sleep, and guess what I woke up to this morning ??? Yup AF πŸ™‚ it probably was a coincidence but I don’t care because she’s finally came. So now I can get this party started πŸ™‚ I’m in a lot of pain and on my pain killers like always when she is here but I’m really excited about this cycle. I can either go in toworrow or Tuesday for my baseline. If I have really bad cramps tomorrow I’m going to go in Tuesday if no one can drive me because I never ever drive while on my pain killers. I will update after my baseline is done πŸ™‚

Still nothing ….sigh

I still did not get my period 😦 I don’t understand what is going on. I’m never late and now I sit here and I’m on cd 35. I have cramps and all the good stuff that comes along with it but nada. I can’t believe I want my period so bad and she is a no show. The nurse emailed me on Friday and told me that if I got my period over the weekend to go in on Monday for bloods and sono at my local clinic. I really don’t think Monday is gonna happen now unless she shows tomorrow. I wonder if that’s ok to go in for a baseline on cd 2. Oh we’ll we shall see what tomorrow brings. If nothing by Monday I’m going to have to go in for some kind of blood work. Ugh only me. 😦
