Good luck today @Precious40!!!!
I'm awake early... Can't sleep
I woke to a great big fat juicy pimple on the side of my nose. Not impressed. That's either a good sign or a bad one!!
@Summer I hope your chat with hubby went aok lastnight.
@midnite01 They took 2 weeks which included a long weekend. Apparently the lab messed up testing for something and Gwenyth had to chase the results.
@Blossom74 I wondered whether you'd take a month off to re-coup. I hope you're not feeling too down this morning.
@Precious40 Good luck today hun. What time (WA) is your scan? xx

@Charlie74 That all sounds really sensible. Try not to stress too much at this stage hun. You're not up against a fixed transfer deadline (unlike transferring in CT!). So LB can put you on a concoction of things to boost that lining for you, and keep you on it for as long as needed. Would you be happy with the min for transfer, 6mm? What are you currently on to build up your lining?
PS: I've never tried the patches before...are they expensive?

It's interesting to compare what we're doing to build up our linings @Charlie74. I'm only about 1.5wks away from starting my CT double FET. I received my instructions from CT lastnight and have just emailed Kate for the scripts, plus waiting for DR M's scripts to arrive via email today. I've had to chase them twice now.
I'll be on:
Progynova x 6 tabs (12mg) a day (2 at 8am, 2 at 2pm, 2 at 8pm). @BlondeinBrisvegas when I do the 8pm dose do you think I should throw an extra cheeky 2 up the vjayjay for good measure?
Estradot/Estraderm patches - CT says to change every 3rd day but LB said every 2nd day. I'm glad they're cheap!
These aren't for lining but I'm guessing they might help with blood flow:
Astrix (baby Aspirin) - 1 per day from CD1
Clexane - 1 per day from CD1
Viagra 25mg pessaries - if needed after the CD14 lining scan. I think I'll take these regardless of what the lining scan measurement is.
I'm being scanned around CD14 and adjust meds as needed to increase my lining, then again around CD21 so I can then start on the progesterone. I've never done two lining scans before or had a 4 week build up to transfer.
I hate eggs with a passion. Maybe as passionately as @Blossom74 hates avacados (snot)...but the pomegranate and beetroot juice sound aok....blend them together in a smoothie? I feel like I've been hit by a truck (virus) so they might help my immune system too?!
Like you, there's not much else I can do. I know from past experience my lining ranges from 6.8mm to 7.4mm. If it doesn't increase with these meds then it's never going to. Last week LB said the transfers should have worked with that lining. This cycle my super star lining goal is 7mm. But I know I shouldn't count my chickens before they hatch and just reaching 6mm would be a relief b/c then at least I know transfer could go ahead.
