Hmmm, maybe fluffy is not the greatest word but it’s the best I’ve got after waking up at 4 a.m., driving to Cincinnati at 5:30 a.m., killing an hour and a half before my 8:30 a.m. appointment and then getting back to Lexington by 10:30 a.m. to attend a Printing Fair (BORING).
The ute lining looks good – triple stripe and measuring about 7.5, a smidgen thinner than last cycle but Dr. B did not seem concerned. I will continue the thrice daily estradiol by mouth (hooray for no smurf-colored discharge) and add nightly injections of progesterone in oil on Friday.
I had the nurse draw new circles on my rump this time. Last time I stopped redrawing them when I knew the cycle failed but had to keep injecting for another week to make the good doctor happy. The Professor FREAKED OUT when he went to do my second to last shot and found no circle remaining. I was all “Just shove it in the general area of all the other needle marks” and he still freaked out. So now I have more lovely circles drawn on my rump. Awesome.
Transfer is set for 10-10 at 10:45 a.m. I wanted to ask if we could do it at 10:10 a.m. on 10-10 for extra good measure but thought that might be a little too cray-cray.
The good news is that transfer is set. The crappy news is that Dr. B can only do it on Wednesday. I could have another doctor do it on Thursday but I really like Dr. B. The Professor is unable to get out of work on Wednesday so I’ll be doing this transfer on my own again.
I have considered asking one of my friends in Lexington if she would play hookie and go with me, but I’m really not sure how chatty I’ll be after the procedure Part of me just wants to drive to the Conservatory post transfer and sit among the beautiful flowers for a few hours to meditate. If I bring a friend I’d feel the need to be chatty and do fun things while in Ohio and I don’t know if going to thrift shopping and to museums after a FET is the best thing for the embabies.
What do you all think? Do this one solo and then hang out with the flowers (I love flowers) or bring along a friend and run the risk of not communing with my uterus?
I wanted to take a quick minute and thank you all for the loving, supportive comments on the post about my baby. I have read them over and over and had numerous soul cleansing cries – I am so, so thankful for this community. I’m still working on responding to them all. I can only handle a few at a time because it gets me so emotional. I love you all, thank you for your words of wisdom, support and encouragement. xoxo
