I had an appointment for blood work yesterday, to test Estradiol levels. Unfortunately, they are lower than my doctor would like, so they added a suppository to the protocol, and will do blood work again after my ultrasound on Monday.
If everything looks good Monday, and if my blood work comes back the way it should (with higher Estradiol levels) then we will transfer next Monday, August 10th. Beta will be on the 20th! If my Estradiol levels still aren’t high enough, we could be looking at a small delay.
In the meantime, I thought it would be both fun and helpful to look back on several blog posts from my first transfer. It’s funny that, even though it was less than two years ago, so many of the details are fuzzy. I need a refresher course on what to do before and after transfer. I hope this is helpful for any of you who are approaching your F.E.T cycles as well.
8) Enjoying the Two Week Wait– This post is over two years old. It’s strange reading my old two-week wait checklist, because so much has changed in just two years. I think my two-week wait will go by much faster this time around than it ever has in the past, because not only do I have Bonnie, but I also have two other toddlers to keep me busy.
Speaking of Bonnie, she’s been terribly sick all week. She’s had a fever, been lethargic, not been eating, and been so pitiful. We took her to the doctor first on Tuesday, and then again on Thursday. Apparently she has enterovirus, which was a bit of a relief considering I was afraid it might have been measles. She’s got a rash on her tummy, back and forehead that kind of freaked me out. The doctor said that since she’s had the fever since Sunday night, he thinks she should be on the upswing by the beginning of next week.
