Welcome new follower! It's great to have you!
Upon the advice of our RE, we cancelled our FET cycle 3 days ago, just 2 days prior to the scheduled transfer. We could have proceeded if we wanted to, but we elected to heed her advice. The day after we cancelled, the RE emailed me. Among other things, she said, "I am of the firm belief that attention to every detail is key in this business." I agree wholeheartedly and am glad she is a perfectionist.
Why did my E2 get too high? Why did it continue to climb even when the D.elestrogen dosage was reduced? Who knows. I think I am acutely sensitive to medication. I've experienced it before...taking a standard dose of some med and hyper responding to it (let me tell you, laxatives are not a fun way to discover such a fact!). Well, it's no one's fault. Next time they will start with a lower dosage.
For now, I have to wait. Patience is not my strong suit. It's sort of an ironic fate, but life is that way, isn't it? Forcing us to learn the lessons we need to learn. Forcing us to face our weaknesses, our flaws and our vulnerabilities. Challenging us to remain strong in the face of adversity.
So I accept the bitter medicine (time) and do my best to show fate I am learning (not whining and complaining). In the mean time, I just breathe and try to be otherwise productive. I re-potted my tomato seedlings. I wrote three pages of manuscript (I'm trying to write a book). And I took the dogs on a long neighborhood walk. More about the walk tomorrow.
