What The Fuck?!!!


Yes guys, three exclamation marks, and you know my rules.

On Tuesday my womb lining was 1mm - way too thin.  The head of the clinic, an intimidating consultant, sat me down and said there was no point in trying to implant anything. Frozen embryo transfer at a later date was my only option.

But why am I telling you this?  You know this. I know. Hell, my boss knows this because I emailed him to let him know I’d be back at work next week.

But … um … today. My lining is now 7mm thick. Ideally it should be 8mm or more on trigger day (for I am triggering tonight for egg collection on Sunday) but a dramatic improvement. So much so that my Doctor has done a U-turn and thinks that I can go ahead with the full IVF this cycle. No waiting for a frozen cycle.

I'm flabbergasted, but I'm trying not to get too excited, because who knows what Sunday will have in store for me.

And I've had to email my boss. Which was embarrassing.

    And maybe even an emoticon or two ;)

  4. And crying over here. Must be my hormones, but nevertheless, shocked and thrilled for you all at the same time! I'm the praying kind, so I'll be on it for Sunday. xx

  6. Excellent news. (And I like to think that the goat I sacrificed to the god of exclamation points did his bit:) Unreal. It's truly a rollercoaster ride, isn't it? But this is the best possible news. Keeping fingers crossed for retrieval and onward. That THIS cycle right here ends in that beautiful BFP (and that you have blasts to put on ice). Pulling for you - hard - on this side of the Atlantic

  14. Is it me, or has there been a sudden upsurge in emoticons in your comment section?

    Hurray for a lining worth exclamation points. Continue making those fantastic eggs to make excellent embryos to take advantage of that lining...and I'm really hoping that you'll find many more things worthy of multiple exclamation points in the near future!!!

I've resisted word verification for ages but I'm getting so many spam comments at the moment that I think it is time. Sorry!
