A week and a half ago I had our first appointment for our first transfer. If you are new to my blog, we did two retrievals in a row and are now starting transfers. Since then, I have have continued birth control pills until two days ago and have taken daily Lupron injections. I still do not like Lupron but it is not the worst drug out there. It would be nice if these hot flashes would stop though!
Today I had another appointment and everything looks good to start the next phase. For the next two weeks, I will be on estrogen patches. Apparently I put one on tomorrow and every few days I add another on until I have four on and I go back to my RE. I am not sure what to expect being on these patches. Can anyone share their experiences with me so I know what to expect? I am worried they may fall off. I would also think it may make me a little hormonal. I am so glad I have a patient and understanding husband to back me up 🙂
After two weeks, they will put me on progesterone for six days and monitor my lining. This is my first transfer ever but I am worried my lining will not get think enough. Has anyone had issues with this? If everything looks good, we will complete the transfer on Thursday, February 19th. We have decided to transfer one boy. It feels so surreal to actual have a date on the calendar. I am getting so excited!
While our transfer is coming up, I feel like I am going to go crazy waiting for the days to pass. I am so ready to have it done. I have been ready for a long time. – Jennie
