Take 2!

Transfer went well this AM, but not without a stupid-me moment! Thankfully I didn't end up on the toilet again - altho I was told to stop drinking when my stomach got upset, and had to chew 4 TUMS to get it calmed :) But there's nothing like being situated on the bed, having the staff come in to get me prepared - and to be told "um, you left your panties on"! Yep, totally forgot to lose them before going into the room. Had to remove them under the sheet - with everyone watching - and pass them off to Michael to put into his pocket! Anyway, not nearly as embarrassing as the last transfer, but yet another story. Altho, in my defense, I'd had taken my valium by that that's what I blamed it on :)

Anyway, we did an FET and both embies thawed with hardly any degeneration! One had only re-hydrated to 60% but they felt certain it would continue to improve once transferred, the other was 100% and almost perfect :)

So, I am reclined in bed and resting, and praying that these little babies stick & grow!! I'll probably starting peeing on HPT's by Weds - if I can wait that long!!!

Thanks to you all for your well-wishes and prayers!

Ultrasound & Labs Today!

Well, today's ultrasound was as good as I hoped it would be - lining was 12.9! Anything over 8 is great :) So now we're just waiting for the lab numbers to come in, but are really hoping they are much higher since the lining looked so good. Holding my breath!!

Update: Estrogen was 522! And lining was 13.2 not 12.9 :) We're officially scheduled to transfer on 4/29/11 @ 1:30!!!

I had my first lab today - estrogen was low (20) and I am not happy :( My estrogen usually is way ahead of the game so I expected more of the same. Not the case this go-around. The RE nurse said that this is typical when you've had a miscarriage and it just takes your body a little time to respond - sometimes a little more time than is typical. So, we will keep on schedule, for now, and hope that my labs next Monday will be where they should be! I'm a bit of an over-achiever, so I'm bummed out.
