We are a GO for November transfer!!
Sorry if you have been waiting all day for an update. I had my ultrasound and blood work this morning. My lining was at 9.3 mm, so I knew it was looking good. But I had to wait for my blood work results to come back and the clinic had to fax the results over to NEDC before I would hear anything back from Katie, the NEDC nurse.
After my appointment, I met up with some ladies from our infertility/adoption group for lunch. It was really nice to catch up with everyone. We had met about 3 years ago in the infertility support group and now all the ladies have baby girls, with the exception of Katie who adopted embryos, who has a set of boy/girl twins. It was so fun to catch up, see the babies and just see how far we have all come. I am the only one yet to have a baby, so everyone was super supportive and just very excited for my upcoming transfer.
By 3 pm, I still had not heard from NEDC, so I called and left a message with Katie. I also called my local clinic to make sure the results had been faxed over since they had an issue with getting the fax to go through back in September. The clinic assured me they had already faxed it and it went through just fine. So I called and left another message. By 5 pm I had given up hope that I would hear from Katie (as it was 6 pm at NEDC) and just assumed that I would get a call tomorrow. I was pleasantly surprised to get a call after 5 pm from Katie. I was happy and excited to hear from her. I said "Isn't it a little late for you to call? I thought for sure you would have gone home and I was expecting you to call tomorrow". Right after I said it, I thought oops, I hope it didn't sound wrong, like I was complaining about it. She said Thursday is the long day for them and they were crazy busy with appointments that go late.
So, my lining looked good at 9 mm and my estradiol numbers were good too, though I didn't ask her what they were. On Saturday, I start progesterone in oil (PIO) and reduce my Es.trace to 2 times a day.
My transfer is scheduled for 11:45 am on Wednesday, November 20th. We are to arrive at the clinic at 11:15 am.
Yay! We are officially a GO for our transfer next week.
