Unfortunately the nurse was talking about my uterine lining.
This means that our transfer date, as of right now, has been pushed back by a week. They’ve upped my estrogen and, with the support of the additional pill and some red wine supplements, it should be good to go when we measure it again, next Wednesday.
I have to admit, it’s hard to not be bummed out about it. I had that transfer date in my head and I was anxiously awaiting it. So, I put on my Speedo and headed to the gym and swam thirty laps. It helped me to get my head around things. With each lap I swam I was visualizing. I was working through the disappointment and towards the end result. This is a very important part of working the power of positive thinking. If this sounds like something that you need in your life, (and don’t we all?), then you should watch The Secret.
Here is the good news: My doctor wants to give me and my snowbabies THE BEST chance at successful implantation. This is why we are upping the meds and giving it another week. The optimal uterine lining measures between 7-12 mm. Mine is measuring at 6.5 mm. 6.5 mm is not hateful. It’s almost there. We want these babies to be able to dig in and stick, so we need to do right by them. So, as we speak, my extra estrogen is working its mojo. My uterine lining is growing thick, and plush and perfect. This is a good thing. Would you say a little prayer for me? Thanks.
On another note: I am starting a new feature on this blog. I will be posting a “Food Bloggin’ Friday” post shortly. If you love me, you’ll think of a delicious and easy recipe that you could contribute to Food Bloggin’ Friday. Stay tuned…
Oh, and thank you for your support. I mean it.
