As mentioned our Oct, Nov FETs were cancelled due to crappy lining. So was our January try after that. Once again the problem was noooo lining. I can not tell you how much I wanted to just give up. We even looked in surrogacy at our doctors suggestion.
The other suggestion our RE made was to try again. Ugh. Seriously?! This man must be crazy if he thinks I want to fill myself full of crazy hormones again just to be told I got nuthin'! Um...No Thanks. But, we still had 4 frosties to think about so we consulted him for new ideas and went for it. Here's what was different. *1* We used estrace cream, *2* We used Acupunture. These two things together were a little miracle. By my last u/s to see if we could transfer, my lining was looking great! Amazing, that had not happened before! On transfer day, we transferred 2 beautiful embies. One hatching blast and one nearly hatching. For once I did my bedrest as perscribed.
I waited to test until the morning of 5dp5dt. Now my transfer was in the afternoon so this was really 4.5 days but who's counting? (oh wait we all are) anyway, used Equate (walmart brand) test and the faintest of lines showed up. Feeling like I must have finally pushed myself over the edge of sanity I chalked it up to an evap line and posted it for my IG girls. truly I wasn't sure if there was an evap line or no line at all...I decided that POAS had finally pushed me over the edge. So, I did what every insane person does and took another test that afternoon. (dollar tree brand) After several min a faint line showed up, I decided that too was an evap or I was imagining it. My IG girls thought differently. They saw the "line" and thought I may be PG.
6dp5dt. I wake up....I test. 2 tests, both have faint lines....I must be crazy...or....maybe.....I might possibly be seeing real lines?! Nope, I am crazy I decide. That night I decide to take a FRER. I was so afraid of this one. I knew whatever it said, it would be right. The FRER test is mega dependable. So, I hold going to the bathroom off for hours until I think I might burst and I give in and pee on the damn stick. Well, wouldn't you know it 2 lines quickly appear. Holy crap...I am not crazy!! Or, maybe I am but not in that way. I am officially seeing a BFP!!
7dp5dt. Wake up...gather my courage...take a digital. It says "PREGNANT"!!!! I carry it with me everywhere I go and stare at it, I feel sooooo lucky.
At this point of course I continue to test because I am a nut but I finally believe in the BFP!! Now....waiting for BETA!
