Well today I went in for my appointment in preparation for my upcoming FET transfer scheduled for December 17th. So far I am taking 10CC of Lupron every morning along with Estrace two and a half times a day. Today when I went in the RE told me that everything was looking “great” and I am exactly where I need to be. After school, they called me and told me to up my dosage to Estrace three and a half times daily until my next appointment which is next Wednesday.
I’m actually starting to feel some excitement about the whole thing again. My husband and I have a really good feeling about this. With this whole infertility process, when something doesn’t work out you feel absolutely crushed, broken, and devastated. Hence, how I felt when IVF # 1 was a fail. We were pregnant but it resulted in a chemical pregnancy. The positive is that at least I know that I CAN get pregnant. But, it didn’t work out and we had to move forward with prepping for a FET. First of all, I am really grateful that we even have embryos that we can use for this. From what I have been reading and researching, there are many people who do not even get any “frosties.”
I just want to be as positive as possible and believe that this is going to be it for us. When I am negative, it does no good to me or to my husband..so I really want to continue to maintain a positive outlook. From the meds or I don’t know what, I have not been able to eat like I normally would. I’ll eat something but it won’t last in my stomach very long. I think that that also had to do with the fact that my bowels have been affected because of the endo. Sometimes I can eat something and be fine, other times, not so much. It’s manageable though.
Anyway, that’s the current update. Praying and believing for some awesomeness this December.
