Update!!!! ER news!
Sat, 12-12-2009 - 1:02pm

partially cross-posted

Ok, so I didn't post yesterday w/ an update, but my lining was less tahn ideal. last week, it was 9 mm and 3 layers. yesterday it was only 7 mm and bright- no layers. I was very worried. my doc added in more estrace, 3 x/day up from 1 x/day. i go in on Monday for another check.

BUT, my doctor actually just called me! Normally the nurse calls, but I think since I've been at this for soooo long now, she wanted to give me a call. LOVE HER!
In regard to my lining, she explained the whole thing- using a sponge analogy- kinda confusing, but the bottom line is she's not too concerned. SHe said it's a moving target and changes so often. So as long as it's over 7mm, it's OK. She did add in teh extra estrace and I will go in for another scan on Monday to see how it looks. She said worst case, would freeze the embies and do a transfer when my lining is more optimal. she knows that is not waht we want, but also of course we don't want to transfer w/ a non-optimal lining. So we'll see on Monday how it looks. She also said that once you add in the progesterone, the look of it changes. it goes from layers or bright or whatever, to white...

She also gave me all of the stats on my donor. she still has 18 follies, the biggest on the R is a 23 and the L is a 21. her e2 is 3232
