Transfer is scheduled

I had another ultrasound and blood draw this morning. My lining looked perfect at 10.4 mm, so our transfer is scheduled for May 14th. My nurse gave me my first progesterone shot at the office and marked big circles on both sides of my butt/hip for Nick to continue them. I'm on 1cc of Progesterone in Oil twice a day, and if I am pregnant, I'll continue them until 11 weeks. Yeah, that's a lot of shots!

My Estrace dose is lowered to two pills twice a day, and those will also continue through the first trimester if I am pregnant. Same with the baby aspirin and of course my prenatal vitamins. On Tuesday, I will start antibiotics, a Z Pack this time, and Medrol, both for four days. Tuesday will also be my last day of the Dexamethasone.

Phew. So many medications to keep track of. I will be on bed rest the 14th, 15th and 16th, and then taking it easy that weekend. My beta is scheduled for May 24th. I doubt I have the patience to wait for the beta, so I'm sure I will test before then. I just don't know when yet.

I appreciate all of the thoughts and love. I know we will need them. I hope our little girl decides to stick around because we already love her so much.



  1. Crossing my fingers, hoping, and praying for your little girl to stick and hold on tight! Thanks for sharing so much also - I'm not really knowledgeable about the process and am interested in hearing about it. ESPECIALLY if it results in beautiful baby to bring home.

  2. Yay! for a great lining check! We are also going through our first FET (did our first IVF in February but because of my high E2 level we didn't do a fresh transfer and instead froze all 7 embies :)
    Our transfer is scheduled for May 15 so just a day behind you. Sending lots of positive vibes your way! Keeping my fingers crossed that Grayson gets a little sister in 9 months!

  3. Transfer day!!! That is so exciting! I'll be thinking of you guys and hope that baby girl stays put! So happy for you!
