Ugh, just what I needed, a head cold. Yesterday I broke down and took cold medicine. Today I'm going to go without. Nothing really works on a cold but rest and fluids. Cold medicines just mask the symptoms and as soon as the medicine wears off the cold is right there again.
Today was the E2 blood draw and lining check. When I got to the lab I grabbed a face mask and wore it until I left the hospital. I swear I had a large radius of empty chairs around me at the lab. No one but my husband would sit near me. I should wear a mask more often!!!
I'll find out what the E2 levels are later today when I get the time and date for the transfer. We will be hopefully transferring on Monday since J has the day off. If not then Tuesday and he'll have to ask for the day off and hope that his chain of command is still good with giving him the time they promised him.
Lining is 13 mm. Perfect according to Dr. Chow. The mass is still in residence behind the left ovary. Not shrinking, not growing. Seems that this ultrasound has shown it to almost definitely be scar tissue from the surgery last year. Great just what I needed a 4.7 cm mass of scar tissue. The only fix is more surgery and of course then I risk getting even more scar tissue. No thanks!
I'm actually looking forward to starting the PIO shots. I told J that he has to do them each morning. He grimaced at that but he has given them to me before. He did the PIO shots with the firt IVF. We did endometrin with the second IVF and I did the PIO shots myself with the first DE IVF.
Some times it really astounds me that I've now done four IVFs. Crazy to think about. Maybe I'm a bit of a masochist? Or maybe I really think I have a shot (get it) at making a baby each time? I'm remaining hopeful as this cycle seems to be going differently than the last three and has the same protocol as the last one. Maybe the synthroid is really helping?
