Thank you Sunshine :)

I am now testing at home after surgery and hoping to be back at 100% soon.

Question though: yesterday I took my BCP just to realize I was supposed to stop 6/7 (I've been so busy and distracted I didn't pay attention as to when I was supposed to stop). Do you think it's going to affect my FET? (I took 3 extra days)

Expect, I'm not to sure about the bcp's but I'd imagine it wouldn't make a huge difference since you're doing an FET. Just make sure you tell your doctor so adjustments can be made just tin case.

Carbarbie- they had to push my cycle bc my lining isn't thick enough so right now it looks like 7/21. Hoping for it to stick bc in losing my insurance since I'm not in school anymore and DH is being let go bc of downsizing so we losing his insurance as well :(

Hope everyone is well!

Carbarbie, hope all is well. Thank you for checking in. We did an IUI 7/5. I didn't want to do another ivf so soon, especially since my hysteroscopy results were all normal. We know my eggs can be fertilized natrually, and we know I make normal embryos and now we know its nothing wrong with my uterus so I didn't want to move right into another ivf so quickly. We only have one ivf cycle left covered by insurance so I didn't want to use it now. I needed a break. If we get pregnant before September that will be a blessing. Otherwise I just need some time not revolved around cycles and medication.

Achef, when do you test. Hope you are feeling good. Please God all goes well. Hope you have a little vacation planned for August. Whatever the outcome you deserve a nice break x

Expect, sorry to hear about your dh job. I hope that he gets a new job soon. I know from experience it can be a real worry but things always work out in the end. So did you start your cycle and then they cancelled it or did it not even get started? What are they doing to help thicken your lining? I hope everything is good to go for you on 21st!

Thank you. I'm in the middle of the cycle now. I was supposed to do FET 7/12 so they're extending for a week. Last week my lining was 7mm so it wasn't terrible but RE wants it's nice and thick so is giving me an extra week. I'm doing acupuncture twice a week and they added estradiol vaginally in addition to twice orally. Any tips to increase it?

Carbarbie, thanks sweetheart. DH and I are going to Vegas for a week on July 20th. I'll know in 10 days if the iui is successful. If it isn't I'll be enjoying my time in Vegas.

Expext, I know everything will work out for you and DH with work. For the lining, I used Wheatgrass Tablets. My lining was always over 10mm every time I took them.
