FET Officially Underway

I went in today for my CD2 ultrasound (no blood work) and I’m all cleared to start FET! My lining was 5mm, my ovaries are back to normal and I had no cysts. And oops, I had on two different socks. Teeheehee!

Tonight I’ll start Aygestin pills and Saturday I’ll begin 20 units of Lupron nightly. I go back in on CD16 (2/25) for another ultrasound. If all looks good on the 25th, I’ll start Estrace pills. Not sure when, but the next ultrasound after I start Estrace, I’ll stop Lupron and begin Progesterone. Lastly, a few days before the transfer, I’ll start Medrol. The transfer will be within 4-5 weeks from today. I hope it’s closer to 4 weeks though. šŸ™‚

I’m really looking forward to this cycle. I’m hoping that because it will be easier on my body that this time it will actually work! It will be much, much more relaxing. No every-other-day appointments. No bloating. I can exercise. Actually, I think we’ll plan a little weekend ski trip.

Oh, and we’ve decided that we’re transferring two embryos this time. With two embryos, my RE says we have a 50% chance. Please let us fall on the right side of the odds this time. My hubby’s birthday is near the end of March and a BFP would be the best birthday present ever.
