FET #2 In Progress…..

FET #2 Update

My ultrasound this morning showed my lining at 6.5 mm and my largest follicle was 10mm.  I am on day 8 so this is pretty good news for me.  I tend to ovulate late so the fact my follicle is 10mm already makes me happy.  They like my lining to be 8-10mm and will trigger me when my follicle is 18mm.  I would say they will probably trigger me in a week or less.  I think after the trigger I will be doing the transfer one week later.  Our frozen embies are five day blasts.  This is all so exciting!  I hope on turkey day I have something really to be thankful for!  I am scheduled to go back in for my second monitoring appointment Thursday!  So many emotions going on right now.  Does anyone else find themselves really anxious during a FET or IVF?   It is like the closer I get to transfer day the more and more anxious and nervous I am.  I wish I was one of those people that when I got anxious I went on some crazy cleaning spree but instead I usually tend to turn to food.  I should see if I can change that this time…..but what would be a good outlet I could do when I get anxious?  Hmmm…..

Hurricane Sandy

My work was closed today because of Hurricane Sandy is on her way.  It is supposed to be a nasty one.  We have prepped….took everything inside or tied it down outside.  I can hear the wind howling outside.  Last year this same week we had a nasty Nor’easter.  The good thing is I am lucky to be home with the fireplace blazing and safe and sound.  Since yesterday was a recovery day I did not do a thing.  So I managed to get some cooking done today.  I made some chocolate protein bars and Jamie Eason’s Monster Meatloaf.  I also came up with a Pumpkin Pie protein shake.  It was pretty good.

Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake

1 scoop vanilla protein powder

A few T of sugar free vanilla pudding ( I bet cheesecake flavor would be good too)

1/2-1 C Milk

Xanthum Gum (for thicker consistancy)

Many shakes of Pumpkin Pie seasoning


Lots of Ice

I am hoping we can manage getting through the storm without losing power.  We had cable issues this weekend so I was without internet all weekend.  Not gonna lie…it was painful.  I also hope they cancel work again tomorrow!  I am off Friday so that would make for a very nice, short work week!  I think it is going to be an early night for me.  Snuggling up in bed with my kindle sounds pretty damn good to me.   I better charge that puppy up before it’s too late.

      Yes, after transfer I am a wreck! I worry that I am going to do something to jeopardize our chances. I am in New Hampshire! Doing the “no work” rain dance right about now 🙂

    I get anxious the day before transfer because I worry about the thaw – wondering how many they’ll need to thaw to get the two to transfer. The good news, though, is that this is less and less of a problem these days with the new freezing methods (which they’ve likely used for yours – vitrification). After tranfer, I’m usually a wreck waiting until I can test.

    You can’t really do anything to jeopardize your transfer! Even bed rest is not necessary (but we all do it). All you have to do is show up with a good lining, and those embryos do the rest. When we got pregnant with Matthew, I actually forgot to start my estrogen patches until I was 4 days late on them and ran a block a couple times without remembering I wasn’t supposed to. And look what happened 😉

    Be safe out there on the East Coast!

      That is good to hear. I always am afraid that it is something I did as far as why it has not worked for us. I think it will work this time! Well, I am hoping it does 🙂

    Good luck to you! I hope you have a Turkey-Day surprise! What a nice recipe, we just carved our pumpkins and I was wondering if there was anything besides pumpkin pie that I could make. Thanks!
