Firstly, thank you all so much for your kind words over the past few weeks! It has meant so much to me 🙂
My period started this past Thursday, 8 days after my egg retrieval. I was very pleasantly surprised to see it! I went in the same day for baseline bloodwork and an ultrasound. The nurse said my ovaries were still VERY large but that she wasn’t seeing fluid around them anymore so that was good news! We ordered my meds (Estrace, Minivelle, Prednisone, and Progesterone in Oil). I didn’t know that the PIO was in sesame oil…that seems so weird to me. The nurse also scheduled our transfer for March 18th and made a note that we wanted to transfer 2 embryos…eek! I left with instructions to start the estrogen pills and patches on Friday.
Later that evening, I received an email from another nurse saying that our doctor wants me to birth control pills on Friday instead…my estrogen was still too high (a little over 100). I had a little melt down. I know it seems silly, but I just couldn’t wrap my head around waiting an extra week. Joe on the other hand, is just thrilled we’re at this point and the extra week seems like nothing to him. I wish I felt that way. I am so grateful to have gotten to where we are now but I can’t help be upset at another set back. I pray that this is the last one!
