The dramatic leap from 1mm to 7mm in three days that my womb lining showed last round of IVF was Not A Good Thing. Yes having a thicker womb lining great for the embryo to bed down in but growing that fast isn’t healthy.
Which is what I have been telling myself repeatedly all morning, and why I am quite content that my womb lining has grown a respectable 1mm in the last 3 days. At 8mm it has now reached a nice thickness for embryo transfer – the ideal (so my internet trawl tells me) is 8 to 16mm. The doctors also like to see a triple stripe (I’m thinking Aquafresh here) and what do I have? A lovely tri-striped uterus.
So it is all looking very encouraging and the frozen embryo the transfer is going ahead next Wednesday.
In the meantime I start the bum injections again today, and swap my nasal spray for a more intimate squirt. Nice to mix it up again.
I’m really pleased with the timing as this way I’ll take Wednesday and Thursday off work and still have another four days to chill out before going back to the office thanks to some chocolate eating festival that is happening next weekend.
