Early BETA

Since I can't take my BETA tomorrow because the Army hospital is closed, my doc let me take it today at 9dp5dt.


It's 122!

I'm pregnant!!!

Two embies

Two embies were very gently transferred to my uterus this afternoon.

Cue cheers and cartwheels!

Of course, I experienced the typical pleasures of an FET such as the ultrasound pushing down on my full bladder. However, the funniest part was that you can definitely tell this isn't my first rodeo. In the few minutes between getting prepped and waiting for my embryos, the doc and I sat there chatting amiably despite the fact that my feet were up in the stirrups and my goods were exposed. Good times!

I'm optimistic and hopeful!

Beta is 9/28.

Sigh of Relief

Thursday we flew out to California. I am thankful that my flight time was only three hours versus six from Alaska! It was such a piece of cake and my boy was a champ.

It took two hours to trek across LA to get to my doctor's office this morning. Let me tell you, I do not miss LA traffic! My dad was completely sweet and drove me so that I didn't have to deal with it all myself.

I pressed the elevator button for my doctor's office and had to double check that I had the right floor because he's redecorated since I last cycled.

It kind of reminds me of a boudoir, but heck, I can deal with that.

The best news was that my lining was a 12.5 despite the fact that I've been lightly bleeding for the last SIX days! I've been so freaked out about it, I think I've been more physically stressed than in any prior cycle. I *think* today it finally stopped. If not, the progesterone will probably take care of it tonight when I take my first shot.

Still on...

Thankfully we are still on with this cycle for now...

The plan is to head out to California and have the doc check out my lining as scheduled. If the bleeding has impacted my lining severely, we'll wait a week to allow it to get up to snuff. I generally have a nice plush triple-striped lining, so I'm hoping that my normal extra will give me some cushioning with what I might have lost. 

Who knows? Maybe this will help in the long run?!?!

Off to start packing now...or maybe go get some chocolate ice cream and pack tomorrow. :D

So yesterday afternoon, I started bleeding. Since I'm ten days away from my embryo transfer, this really shouldn't have happened.

I emailed my doctor this morning and received a response this afternoon saying we should postpone my cycle.

All I can think is WTF! WTF! WTF!

Classy, I know.

I'm annoyed at my body.
I'm annoyed that I'm going to have to spend more money to change plane tickets.
I'm annoyed that I have to wait.
