News travels slow

I am so sorry for not updating sooner. There are a lot of moving pieces in the communication between my monitoring clinic, my fertility clinic, K & J, and myself. Whew!

Monday was my ultrasound to check my uterine lining to see if we are ready for transfer. (It was also my birthday, yay!) We saw a fluffy, trilaminar 21mm uterine lining. Since I was 19mm prior to the previous transfer attempt, I can only think is good news the fluffier the better, right?! So off I went to celebrate my birthday with my family complete with flowers, cupcakes, and even a surprise overnight getaway with the hubby, sans kiddos! The hubs and I spent a couple of days in Atlanta, exploring Oakland Cemetery, the Georgia Aquarium, and my favorite part: The Bodies Exhibition. Perhaps not everyone would enjoy viewing cadavers on their birthday, but it floated my boat! And just as we were wrapping up our trip and about to head home, I got an email from the fertility clinic...

Y'all. Another set back: my lining is TOO thick for transfer. I cried a little. Apparently, the RE would like my lining to be between 8mm and 20mm at this point. Soooo, instead of transferring on May the 4th (be with you!), we will have another ultrasound to see if lowering my estrace dose by half will drop that lining measurement a bit. I will be in the office bright and early next Wednesday, praying my body responds favorably this time.

I'm trying not to be discouraged with all the push backs; it's frustrating. And I know K is a bit frustrated as well. We're so so ready!


  1. A Star Wars Day transfer would have been awesome. The wait continues for my love and for K and for that, I am sad.

  2. Oh, and Atlanta was such a wonderful place to visit. I loved every second of our time together.
