I went for my first U/S and lab today. I wasn't sure how I would feel, being back in the doc's office and all. The last time I was there, it was for the failed IVF follow-up. I was very teary and I remember my heart feeling extremely heavy walking through those doors. It's an understatement to say that I didn't want to be there and even questioned whether I wanted to ever go back.
Thankfully, those feelings have long passed and today's appointment went quite well! I was in and out in less than an hour. The estrogen injections are working quite nicely. I'm so glad I switched to injections over patches this time around...I find them easier to deal with. My endo lining looks fab...it was over 9, which the doc said is great! My ovary is supposed to be 'resting' during this time and from what the doc said, it's snoozing away with no cysts in site! Looks like they will be thawing our little one in the very near future...we're looking at an October 1st transfer!
I have been a bad girl and have been drinking regular coffee instead of decaf this time around. I tried to start out with decaf but it just tastes awful and I honestly feel like I did everything 'right' last time and it had no bearing on the outcome. I truly believe that God is in control of it all and He will give me a healthy pregnancy when the time is right...caffeinated coffee or not. :)
I have been pretty emotional over the past week...the hormones are definitely in full swing. I feel like I'm more aware of it this time around though. If I snap at someone (which unfortunately, I have done), I find myself crying and apologizing within seconds of doing it. Luckily, I have an awesome husband and family and they have been very patient and supportive.
I do have to say that preparing for a FET has been MUCH easier than preparing for a fresh cycle. I'm thankful for that!
Well, I guess that's all for now. Just wanted to give a quick update!
Love to all,
