So sorry I have not kept up on everyone’s happenings… I am cheering all of you ladies on! 🙂
Thank you for the condolescences. It was a difficult week but I am glad my Father-In-Law is not longer suffering.
I am CD7 today, following AF last week (yay!). I had a pelvic ultrasound to check for any additional/new cysts. The u/s tech said my ovaries looked beautiful. She said they ignore my large cyst unless there are any dramatic changes.
My specialist said we could start (I am not sure if she said start the Estrace or the Provera), but I let her know that I did have a three day period last week.
She said we could start next month, unless I am in a rush (I let her know I was not in a rush, although I wanted to shout “yes!”). If I do not get a period towards the end of this month, I take the Provera, and then start the Estrace on Day 1 till an ultrasound on Day 10 to check that my lining is growing and then start Endometrin.
My specialist prefers that I get a period naturally if possible so that there is less medication involved.
I asked some other questions I had like OB care if we get pregnant, if I can get the flu shot, as well I picked up my Estrace.
The pharmacist said the pills are very small and that I will have blue discharge (which I have already read about here 🙂 ) . Any tips for using the Estrace?
It feels like transfer is far away, but I am glad that things happened the way they did, and grateful that the retrieval is done.
DH was born with congential adrenal hyperplasia (as an adult he was told his testing no longer showed this) so we may be referred for testing soon, although my specialist said we already have the embryos 🙁 Hopefully things will work out here. In any case, DH and I had a discussion about fully accepting anything our child may be born with (a family friend had a baby with Down Syndrome and did not know until the baby was born).
Have a great day, ladies! 🙂
