It’s a Go

I got surprisingly great results today.   Drum roll please…..

8.9mm (verbal locally) or 9.8mm (on report sent to CCR.M) &  Trilaminar

 E2=507, LH=12.7, P4=0.2

The local nurse told me one thing verbally today (8.9) , but when the C.CR.M nurse called, she gave me a different, higher number (9.8), based on the report they sent, which I think is based on a US picture.   Maybe someone was dyslexic, but who cares!  I was hoping for a 7.8 and trilaminar.  I was shocked! 

The C.CRm nurse was so happy.  She said “You are good at gambling!”.  I bet my RE was happy, too, albeit surprised.   He was going to let me transfer when the lining was 6-7.    I know my local nurse was also surprised.  I shocked ’em all, including DH (and myself, and some of you, I bet). 

I know this is only a minor piece of the puzzle, but for me, this is huge.  It’s like my own personal victory against the lining thieves.   I had been thinking that if it got there before, I must be able to get there again.   Now I know my uterus can get there.  I can develop a good lining.  Persistance and patience do pay off sometimes.    Here’s what I did this cycle that was different:

  • N0 BCP’s *
  • No Lupron *
  • Normal Estrogen prep in beginning
  • Extra Estrogen after last Saturday’s check *
  • Regular Exercising (Ji.llian Mic.hael’s, 3.0 Da.y to be exact)
  • A glass of red wine every night (thanks to yoga on ivf.conn for that suggestion) *
  • Some BDing with DH to help with blood flow  😉
  • A heating pad on my abdomen for the last few nights.
  • A little more red meat than usual.
  • Endometrial biopsy in January – may have fluffed or recharged lining (edited post to add this – didn’t think of it originally, but maybe this helped)  *

        * I think these are the major contributors to my much improved prep cycle. 

So, as you can see, we are moving forward.  I start progesterone tomorrow.   Yippeee!

    Wow! Wonderful news! So happy for you. Interesting about the red wine. I’m following your progress and sending you positive energy.
    Thanks again for your comment on IVFC (I’m the one with four good blasts, no normals). You made me feel like maybe there’s hope for me.

    Thank you so much everyone! xoxo It’s so heartwarming to know that I am in your thoughts. Now only to decide, untested or normal? We decided on the untested and DH doesn’t want to change that, but who knows if this is a fluke. KWIM?
