Danaa- My heart is so heavy for you. I am so sorry for your loss. Please know that we are here for you just like you are for us. I will continue to pray for you. I know deep down you will get your miracle baby I just wish you didn't have to go through so much to get it. You are one tough cookie and you will be a great mom. We all will be. We wouldn't go through all this if we weren't meant to be moms.

mglupe-I am so happy for you!!! I will have another transfer buddy! yay! Strength in numbers :) So my cycle has been completely monitored and I am currently on 10 pills of Estrace a day. I have been going in every other day for blood work and U/S to make sure my lining is getting nice and thick. I was supposed to have my transfer today, CD 20 but because my lining isnt thick enough yet they changed it to this Tuesday, CD 26. They are also checking every other day to make sure I don't ovulate :rofl: hahaha! yeah, like that would ever happen, but still, they are monitoring it. I will be praying for you and a nice thick lining :) Keep us posted

Sunshine- Those are good numbers! Look forward to knowing how many made it to blast! Looks like your transfer will be close to mine! yay to another buddy!

AFM, I had my U/S and bloodwork today, I am waiting to hear from my nurse. I will continue to hold my breath until she calls. I was told my retrieval should be Tuesday the 12th and I will probably start the IM Progesterone shots tonight. But we will see.... :/

Good day ladies, im still on the rase, however with a long schedule of estrogen protocal. I started on cycle day 4 with 3 2mg of estrogen pill ultrasound on cycle day 12 uterus measuring 6mm up my dose to 4 pills of 2mg twice a day. I received a phone call that im schedule for the 26 of dec for transfer and i was hoping for it to be before christmas ahh. So i booked a flight for this friday to meet with the specialist and hope that my lining is atleast 9mm so that i can ask to reevaluate my transfer day :) i think hes going to get frustrated with me lol. But is because my husband will not be abel to travel on that week since it was not approved by his work. Its a very busy season especially if you work at a resort. Im just trying to stay positive and trying to keep my level of stress low but its not working. If push come to shove i will be on my own on transfer day :( which i dont think it will help me at all. Please ladies keep me in your prayers.
I really hope every one is doing well.

Hi All, new to This board. I am currently on cycle day #15. I have been taking estrogen patches for the last 15 days and had my first ultrasound and lab work since starting he transfer. My LH came back really high, but the Dr said they didn’t see a dominant follicle, so they are confident that i have not ovulated, this however did move up my scheduled transfer date a day earlier to this coming Thursday 12/21. Has anyone ever had their LH go sky high and the transfer still go as planned? Any advice or stories about your experiences would really help to calm my nerves right about now! Wish me luck and send baby dust my way for my 12/21 date with my embies, please and thank you!!!

Not much to update, did not travel to pr on friday. Decided to stay home and rest and de stress. Have an ultrasound on tuesday at 930am and we will now then when the transfer will be for right now its for the 26th of dec. Im still trying to cordinate the flight car and hotel. Do you ladies think i can travel the same day back home or the day after? I wanna stay longer but Puerto rico was also devasted by hurricane maria and its just hard to fine room available. Also if my husband was to come with me he will be returning back the same day or day after.
Dana how are you doing? Im still sad and woundering what went wrong. I know that one day we will have our little bundle in iur arms. We just dont know when. Stay positive.

Hi ladies, i hope everyone is doing good.
Not much to update, just came out of mt ultrasound and it look like im not ready 8mg of estrogen are not doing the trick :( 15days on them and im only at 6.6mm my set day for transfer is on the 26 mostlikely if im not at 8mm on thursday im not going to transfer in that day. Wbat a bummer. Any advise what to do, what to drink or what your doc have given you to get a nice lining.
I would appreciate your input
Just a quick update. I travel to pr and no changes from yesterday but it felt good to speak face to face with my doc. He added delestrogen twice a week to my protocal will check me back in a week. So 8mg of estrace and 0.3ml of delestrogen twice a week. My new transfer day is now schedule for jan 3 2018. Good by 2017 :) welcome 2018 :).

McGlupe - I hope everything works out for the 26th, sending you my prayers.

BBE - how was the retrieval?

AFM, doing well and grateful every day for my little miracle.

Everyone else - hello, and welcome to the new people. I hope everyone has a nice and peaceful holiday and that our baby dreams come true in 2018.

Pandagrl, Beth: How are you doing Mamas?

Merry Christmas everyone!!
I hope everyone had a nice and enjoyable day with your love ones.

Sorry for not updating sooner but my lining was not responding to the 8mg of estrace and they added delestrogen which is administered by injection. I have a follow up tomorrow to check on it. I hope it did the trick cause im feeling pretty bloated and full. I look like four month prego. Im also very very constipated which is not helping in any way. Sorry. New tentative schedule for Jan 3 2018.
Pandagrl im so happy for your miracle baby :).
Nicksy in no time you will be updating you started your FET protocal. Look how fast 2017 is gone.

Update: my lining yesterday was at 8.09mm. Yeah!! Im schedule for January 3rd. I have a date with my embies.
