We Are A GO For January Transfer!

I had my ultrasound and estradiol appointment this morning.  I was a little nervous that my lining would be too thin, like it was in September.  My lining measured at 7 mm this morning.  I remember back in September I was told that NEDC requires the lining to be at 7 mm at this point of the cycle.  I JUST made it.  I was so nervous about it that I emailed Katie the NEDC nurse right away but I didn't hear back from her until when she called.  Of course when she called, I was in the middle of my eye appointment, so she left a message.  Thankfully, everything looked good.  And yes, 7 mm is the minimum for the lining to be at this point in time.

But, I'm good to go.  We are still a go for my transfer on Tuesday the 21st.  I won't know my exact time of my transfer until closer to Tuesday.  We are going to be leaving on Sunday on a super early flight.  It leaves at 6:30 am so we will have to leave our house at 4:30 am.  I'm not looking forward to that as I am not a morning person.  Also, Babe will have to give me my PIO when we connect in Charlotte, NC.  We will have to find a family restroom so he can give me a shot there.  There is no way I can give myself a PIO shot.  That will be interesting to see how that turns out!

More than a couple of people have asked me how I feel about this transfer.  Excited?  Nervous?

I guess the answer is neither, but also a little bit of both.  After so many rounds of failed IUIs and IVFs, in the past few years, plus the last transfer that resulted in a chemical pregnancy, I guess I am approaching this like I did in November.  Cautiously optimistic.  I am optimistic that this can work but also cautious because I know that it can not work.

I feel like I should be more excited about this transfer but at this point, I'm not.  Maybe part of it is I was nervous that the transfer may be delayed if my lining wasn't thick enough and I didn't want to get disappointed.  But now that that hurdle of it is out of the way, I will hopefully start getting excited.   Especially since I start my PIO shots tomorrow morning (Ouch! Not really looking forward to that!), it may seem more real.  I'll probably be more excited once I'm on the airplane heading south to (slightly) warmer weather.

Now, off to start packing for my trip to TN!


  1. Yay for thick lining!! Approaching ths transfer cautiously optimistic is normal. Don't lose hope though. God has a plan for you and your family! :)

  5. Wonderful news :) Praying that you continue to get good news! When you stop for your PIO in Charlotte, you will be very near where I live so I'll be especially praying that you will find the privacy you need (it's good airport- nice and clean) and will be thinking of you that day (I'll be at work or I'd come see you in person and pass on some encouragement.).

  6. Yay! Prayers! You've got so many prayers coming your way this next week. Have fun in TN!
