A Stripe For Me?

Yes, you read right... that is what I got today. A TRIPLE STRIPE 12 MM LINING... thank you thank you! For those whom are unaware of what that means, it is a prime lining for implantation.

So, all in all things have gone textbook. For the first time ever I have followed my schedule to a tee. Never have I stimmed for the amount of time recommended until #3, never have I had a schedule that I didn't speed ahead of. We WILL be stimming as anticipated and my RE is happy with what we have achieved. I have less follies than previous cycles, but that is sort of the plan. We were trying to stim longer, with less follies to help the quality. I have about 20 follies, but my RE is thinking they will only yield about 15 mature eggs. I WILL TAKE IT! I am good with 10, just give me some good ones to work with, and no FREAKING empty follies.

We are set for a Wednesday a.m. ER, this cycle has been SO different. Not much anticipation or build up. I only had three follie checks and to put it bluntly I am "prepared." I know what to expect and I am not planning on a miracle, I am just "doing it".. not anticipating any miracles or dreams to come true, but also not being pessimistic. Just taking it day by day and not thinking ahead, even today it is hard for me to anticipate an ER, even though I know it is just days away.

This is bitter sweet, as it could very well be out last attempt. We cannot afford to keep throwing $ at IVF if it isn't going to work. We would much rather begin a savings for donor eggs for the next couple of years instead of throwing funds out the window for nothing.

Today I smile because I have hope, today I smile because I have a chance at a biological child, today I smile because my RE is hopeful, today I smile because we followed our schedule, today I smile because I hope that all my follies will yield eggs, today I smile because we had a lot of fun going on a Harley ride upvalley with a large group of friends, today I smile because I know that no matter what everything WILL be okay, today I smile because we WILL be parents somehow!

I'm so excited for you! My RE best described a triple lining as looking like a hamburger with the uterine walls being the buns and the uterus being the hamburger patty. Kind of funny if you think about it.

I'd like an Extra Value Meal, please.
