Today I had an appointment to have my blood drawn and my uterine lining checked. I will try not to be gross about this part. :P
Basically, I am on estrogen to thicken the walls of the uterus so that they will be primed and ready for the fertilized egg to implant. The fertility doctors want the lining to measure at 6.0. Mine measured today at 5.8-6.4...so basically close, but no cigar.
My original 'tentative' transfer dates were between the 13th and 16th of this month. Due to this check not quite meeting expectations, it might be around the 18th. I have to go back next Wednesday for another check. If that one doesn't go well, I fear I will have to restart all of this medication and try again in January.
Basically, all I'm saying is that I need this estrogen to work it's butt off and get my lining where it needs to be. I would love to start the new year off with some good news. :)
And without Lupron... please. My stomach is getting sore.
