I had my ultrasound yesterday and my lining is right where it needs to be, at a perfect 12.75! We are right on track for our transfer to happen on lucky 11/11 at 10:30. I have high hopes for this transfer. If this transfer doesn't work then we will be taking that infamous break, at least until next year if not until the house is done. I feel differently about this cycle than I have any other, but when I look back on it, I've felt a little different with every cycle. This one in particular though, I've been completely focused on so many other things like our house that I haven't had much time to let my mind wander into that abyss of negativity & doubt.
One of my fellow Instgrammers (@ivfshannond) posted this about how our minds change & we get a little more lax with each cycle. I couldn't agree more! I actually forgot to take my Doxy for an entire day, I've slept through my Lupron alarm twice this round, my mind is just in other places and whole process becomes the norm, I don't have to think twice about an injection (maybe I should so I would remember!) I can't help but wonder if my mind being off of this cycle might help just a bit. It's funny how things change.
I have to give a special thanks to my dear friend, fellow blogger, and infertility conqueror, Jessah @ Dreaming of Dimples, I came home after my doctors appointment to a thoughtful care package from her. She's been a wealth of knowledge and a total inspiration to me and to many others in the world of TTC, thank you so much Jessah, you are a beautiful and thoughtful person! I can't stress enough how much the TTC community & my TTC sisters have done for me. The love and support I've been shown from women I've never met, from different countries, & different backgrounds is just surreal.
A week from today I'll be making my 3rd and hopefully final trip down to Rockford to have our frosty transferred back home. I'm banking a lot on the saying "3rd times a charm" and that "11/11" might have some magical powers to it and praying that I finally have some good news to announce on Thanksgiving!
