Getting Excited!

Alright, I have to admit that I'm getting a little excited. Although I'm a bit reserved because I'm nervous about going through another unsuccessful transfer (or pregnancy). In the September group on SMO, there hasn't been much success at all - I'm really surprised. It's just hard to think about all that goes into an IVF transfer. Not simply the money, but the time and effort on every side.

I am just planning on going and enjoying myself. Try to do some nice relaxing. I don't feel that I have as much stress awaiting me when I get home this time so that will help as well. I have a conference call through the agency the day after the transfer so I looking forward to that - I love having surrogate resources.

I started my progesterone shots last night. Back to the good old shots instead of straight suppositories. I'm hoping that the shots will better my chances for success this time.

I leave on Sunday - so we're all getting excited!!

Moving Right Along

Tomorrow I have my lining check and if all is well, I will start my progesterone injections. With this last try, I didn't do the prog. injections, but the suppositories instead. With my last journey, my behind got so bad that I felt like I had numerous mosquito bites back there. Oh well, the price we pay right?

I will be leaving for LA one week from today for my second transfer. Praying for the best!!

Here We Go Again

I had my E2 level checked again today and the official news is that I start my meds tonight! Tentative transfer date on September 28th. The guys are excited, as am I. I thought for sure it would be sometime in October, but we just happened to get bumped up to September. I am only thinking positive thoughts this time. I am absolutely positive this will work. I am so excited to become pregnant again - I have been having withdrawls lately. Yes, I am obsessed! I absolutely cannot wait. C'mon baby.

No Clue

I have absolutely no idea what is going on with my body! I have been spotting for 6 days now. I was kind of hoping it would turn into something, but even if it had, that still would have been too early. I was praying for my cycle to start mid-September - now I have no clue as to when AF will arrive.

I called the RE office to ask if this is normal and was told to go have my estradiol level checked. I'm hoping to hear back by the end of the day as to what's going on. At this point, I still feel pretty safe about making an October transfer. All I can say is, this is so frustrating. I just want to move on!! If this next transfer doesn't work, I don't know what I'll do.

Enough ranting, I will update when I know more.

I heard back from the nurse and she said my Estradiol level is 58 which is too high. I will go back for a repeat check on Tues. to see if my level goes up or down. Hopefully at that point I will have a better idea as to what is going to happen. Seriously body, c'mon...
