@lotsathoughts - Oh hun sorry to hear you are dissapointed with your lining. Did she explain at all how it could have dropped from 8 to 5.8? I have heard of it happening before but where does it disappear too?? Its all just so frustrating! Warren likes the lining to at least be at 6 I think for transfer as he has read resent studies that state it doesn't have to be as think as was first anticipated for implantation and you are very nearly there at that point. Not good that your nurse was very blaise about it all they need to learn and understand what we are going through.
@lileitak - Fantastic result hun and very reasurring!
Thanks @Heyside good to know Warren's thoughts on lining. She didn't explain how it could have dropped and was really vague with responses.
I got the call the call from the nurses and I'm kicking myself I didn't ask them why it would have dropped. I got the impression she wanted me off the phone and had to push to answer my questions. It's just one of those days I guess.
Anyway the main reason they called was to say my estrogen is good so they want to change the trigger to lucrin (which is what I had in the cycle that resulted in DD). So that's positive!
The only other info is that EPU will be on Wed. I asked them if ET would be cancelled because of my lining and she seemed a bit confused by my question and said my FS seems to think it's ok. But no confirmation on EPU time or ET date/time until at least 3pm.
I'm going to assume it's ok for Monday and have requested the earliest time (10:15) so I should hopefully get to work by 12 and only miss half the day. Not telling my boss until I know how my eggs/embryos are travelling)
@lotsathoughts - I think if I was you I would phone and ask the questions you didn't ask, you need a full picture of what has happened where possible you are paying enough money. It sounds positive thst transfer is not necessarily cancelled hopefully things go well from here. Good luck for EPU hun hope all goes well x
@Heyside I took your advice and called up. According to the nurses the FS put the difference in numbers down to acceptable rage of differences between nurses. The first two scans were by the same nurse so I'm assuming he's relying on their numbers for the lining scan. The nurse said in the most careful way that results can differ from person to person and I'm assuming they are comfortable that my lining is at a reasonable level.
I have 9 follicles measuring over 17mm and 22 over 13mm. So a few there that will be too small but hopefully one good one in one of the big follicles.
@lotsathoughts Great numbers with your follies! Sounding very promising. That is frustrating that the lining numbers can vary that much just based on who is taking the measurements. Good that your FS is happy nonetheless. Got my FX crossed for you.
AFM- I'm waiting on today's Beta results from my FS. Don't have a very good feeling. Have been spotting again since last Thursday. Has been accompanied by cramps, lower back pain & loss of pregnancy symptoms. The nasty nurse from last week tried to reassure me that unless I had 'gushing' blood or heaps of bright red blood everything will most likely be fine. She told me that the spotting was most likely leftover from ET! WTF I haven't had ET since feb!! Clearly she hasn't bothered to read my notes. Doesn't give me much confidence in her! I'm still on the HRT drugs so a miscarriage without 'gushing' is a real possibility. Anyway, I desperately hope everything is ok & my HCG is still rising.
I feel like the girl that cried wolf 🙊. One of the nurses just called. We're still in it. I can't believe it. I've been moping around for the last 3 days convinced it was all over! HCG has continued to rise. Today (6wks) we're at 48900. Can't believe it! Going for an anti D shot tomorrow. Thank you everyone for listening to my regular freak outs.
@Muchulu1 - That number is HUGE! WOW! I'm pretty sure I was around 20k with DS at 6 week. Any chance you have two in there? I also had spotting around 6 weeks, but ironically I was at the hospital for a lung infection when it happened, so they scanned me and we got a heartbeat. Do you have a 7 week scan next week?
@lotsathoughts - Jeez - sounds like good news in the end? And fab follicle numbers! We had a similar issue with pregnancy scan. My last one was done by someone new, and a couple of her measurements were very far off the previous person. She had to call in the head doctor, so as you can imagine I was freaking out.
@lotsathoughts I totally understand not wanting to talk to your boss I kept mine under the radar until last EPU because I thought it would be the first day of school. It kinda worked out well because I don't have to make excuses about medical appointments now and she lets me bank the time I have off for appointments until it reaches 1 full day otherwise get slogged half a day for each appointment even if i only miss an hour or so. My principal also knows about both my miscarriage and and my chemical pregnancy because unfortunately they both occurred at work. She is really supportive.
