I went last Friday for labs and ultrasound to check my hormone levels and lining. The results showed I was about to ovulate....not sure why they thought I wouldn't since I was only on estrogen. I had to run to the pharmacy after work Friday to get some ganirelix injections. This medicine puts your body in a holding pattern so you don't ovulate.
I had a checkup for labs and ultrasound yesterday to make sure I didn't ovulate. I am always so nervous with these things. You just never know what's going on in your body until you see it on that monitor and get the lab results. I'm happy to say that all is good and we are still on track for transfer MONDAY!! Woot!! I'm so thankful the medicine did what it needed to do.
My hubby gave me my first (of many, hopefully!!) progesterone in oil injection in my butt this morning. He mumbled, "I don't know why you make me do this to you." after it was all done. LOL! He usually does a great job and I barely feel the giant 1.5 inch needle going in. I did feel it this morning though. Eeek!
We are praying for at least one embryo to survive the thaw. They are starting the thaw tomorrow, in order to get them to be 5 day blasts for the day of the transfer. Please pray and send happy, sticky thoughts for the entire process. Also, please keep G&M in your hearts. This is likely their last chance at bringing home a sibling for their little D!! No pressure, right!?

We have started meds once again. This time, however, I am NOT taking Lupron! I am so happy about that! As long as all goes well with my lining and hormone levels, transfer is set for November 3rd. It will be here before we know it! :) Excited and staying positive!!

So, after taking a little time to grieve and hate the world, G&M have decided to give it another go! I actually start birth control pills tomorrow and have initial labwork done. I'm so happy they decided to try again. I pray it all goes well. This is more than likely their last shot at adding to their family. They say they are so, so blessed with D, of course, but would love to have another little in their home. Praying for smooth sailing and calm nerves for G&M, as they will probably be on pins and needles even more so than last time. The roller coaster ride is back! :)
