FET for me!

This is my first ever FET cycle. I am so excited! It's simply amazing how much easier this is than fresh. I am on CD 9 and I've been on my 3 times a day Estrace pills. I had an infusion yesterday in Nashville and everything went great. I've been on Lovenox and Prednisone for 4 days and that's it so far!

My blood work is scheduled for June 4 to check my estrogen and progesterone levels. I'll start on my progesterone supplement June 5 and the scan is scheduled for June 9. As long as my lining looks good at the ultrasound, the transfer will be June 10. This is so fast and I'm so glad. That way if it doesn't work (which we all know is a very likely possibility with me!) then I would still have time to try again before school starts back up in August.

Our plan is to transfer our ONE lonely genetic embryo. If he/she doesn't survive the thaw, we will transfer two of the donor embryos. I don't really know how to feel. Is it wrong to want to transfer the adopted ones because I feel like they have a better chance of making it or am I just used to believing our own embryos are crappy? I guess whatever happens is what is supposed to happen. It's hard to think you are making the wrong decision but like I said we can try again if it doesn't work. It's just a lot of money down the drain because one infusion costs over $2,000. Ugh. The price we pay for just a small chance of maybe getting pregnant. But our little lone embryo has been waiting to become thawed and transferred since 2011. My mom always said he was a fighter. We have to give him a chance at life, even if it is in my destructive uterus. Please IVIg fix my killer lady parts! :)
