My FET is cancelled! :( :( :(

Oh, the drama. So my FET was pushed back a week after my monitoring visit last Friday when my lining was only 5.9. I went back today hoping for big numbers and only got a 6.4. Boo. I talked to my acupuncturist today and he assured me that he could work miracles and get me to at least 8 by Wednesday, Jan. 28th, the rescheduled FET date. Anyway, this afternoon my RE called (I knew it was going to be bad news since he was the big man himself and not the nurse). He said that while my lining was on the thin side, it was okay. The big problem is that my P4 rose to 3 today which is not good. Apparently that means I was not sufficiently suppressed and am going to ovulate. Dumb bodily functions! Anyway, he said we'd have to cancel this cycle and try again.

SO, tonight I start a 10 day prescription of P.rovera. Tomorrow I will start L.upron injections. After AF comes (when I stop the Provera) I'll start higher doses of E.strace and V.ivelle patches, as well as acupuncture twice a week. I'm glad we've got a plan. I'm frustrated that I essentially went through a whole cycle without making it to the transfer, but I'm glad we know how to fix the problem and can get right back at it.

Mr. C. is so sweet. He knows that I am disappointed (he is, too) so he planned a trip to Charleston for us tomorrow! (If you read my blog then you know that we LOVE Charleston!) It'll be cold, but a good distraction. Please send good FET vibes my way for this next attempt!

Definitely sending good thoughts and prayers your way for your upcoming FET.
Hope you totally enjoy Charleston, and that the next time you visit, there'll be at least 3 of you.

Wishing you all the best,
Anna

You seem to be handling this so well. I know how frustrating it can be to hit that brick wall.

Good news you are able to start over so quickly but I am sorry you are having to.

Enjoy your day out!

You are right- at least they know how to fix it to give you better odds for the FET that will be rescheduled! Maybe our betas will be around the same time, so we can CELEBRATE together!!!!!!!!! :) :)

Arrgh! Better to cancel now than after they've already thawed the embryos, right?

Hope you're having a great time in Charleston. Best of luck with the FET!

I'm so sorry Kelly, but I'm so glad that y'all have a plan in place for this next cycle. Mr. C is soooo sweet to take you on a trip! I hope that this time will go by fast for you and that you will be ready to transfer asap with a super thick lining.

I am so sorry you were cancelled! I am going tomorrow to check my lining and hoping that it is going to be thick enough. I will be praying for your next FET and it sounds like you have a great plan.

Hi Kelly,
Hope you had a happy Christmas! First grade is what I teach now; I switched this year from 2nd. I thought I would be disappointed, but I really love it! I'm more tired, though! Sometimes I miss having a little bit of down time! You said you did kinder and first? Or, was it kinder?

I have such a respect for kinder (and early!!!) teachers now that I have taught first grade. It is AMAZING the momentum that gets started in there! Amazing!

Have fun in Charleston. I've never been there, but I've been thinking of a mini vacation in the next several months...maybe with your endorsement, I'll have to check out Charleston. What do you like about it?

I'm sorry they canceled the FET. Good thoughts and prayers are coming your way.

Chelle said...

Oh no! That totally sucks, but at least you can get right back at it.

Enjoy your trip with Hubby! (Between him getting you a plane ticket and doing this trip, he is a winner! What a sweety!)

I'm sending you good vibes!!! Can ya feel em?
