Waiting Game

Thank you all so much for your kind words and support and hugs in response to my last post. I appreciate your tenderness. I know many of you have losses of your own that live inside your hearts and minds. A sad bond we share.

I had my appointment at the OMC this morning. Remember my 3-part mantra?

Perfect E2!
Thick, thick lining!
No Dr. Creepy!

Well, as the old song goes, two out of three ain't bad. My E2 was great this time. We've found the right dosage. One big victory. I had Dr. Tall and pleasant. Such a kind man. Reassuring. He measured my lining at 8.1. I thought this would be a fine measurement. BUT, my Clinic, in abundance of caution, wants to see it at least 9 mm. I am 1 mm shy. Or 0.9, technically. The Clinic thinks I just need a little more time to build the lining. So, I have another U/S on Friday. I have every hope that I will pass with flying colors.

Thus, the waiting game continues. But we are inching closer.

Some sad news to report. My dear bloggy friend Looking4#3 went for her U/S today and there was no heartbeat. She and her family have endured so much lately. My heart and my prayers are with her and her family.

Oh I bet by Friday you'll be there! Just keep taking drugs and hopefully you'll get that fluffy 3stripe lining everyone talks about. I go in tomorrow for my 2nd to last u/s before transfer, they are doing one the day before which seems weird (monday), but whatever! After I go in for the nasty wand work I ALWAYS get a mocha.

You're almost there! And no Dr. Creepy sounds like a giant plus - there just isn't a good combination of drugs to fix that kinda guy!

(Um, okay, so maybe there IS, but whatever...I am not a pharmacist.)

Grow, lining, grow!

Everything crossed for you:)

You are right, 2 out of 3 is quite good! Now you just need a couple of days for that lining to plump up a bit.

well it was mor than 2 out of 3 since #3 hasn't finished its course yet - right? So it looks like you get 3/3 come Friday.
Put your hands in the air....

(sorry to hear about your bloggie freind).

It took me a bit to get to 9- you will get there!! My next U/S is Saturday. We are neck in neck! Keeping you in my prayers.
