This is what I see...


This is our refrigerator/freezer door. This is what I see everyday. My FET/drug schedule is on the dry erase board. The two circled days are as follows: FET and Pregnancy Testing.

  • Tomorrow I replace my four estrogen patches with FOUR more patches...
  • Friday I replace those patches with FOUR more & I have bloodwork & ultrasound - depending on how my uterus looks...we move on...
  • Sunday I replace those patches with two patches, take 2 Doxycycline (antibiotic), a Medrol (steroid) and three Endometrium (inserts you know where)
  • I continue this until the transfer (Nov. 4) and then I drop the Doxycycline & Medrol the day after transfer and keep up the patches and Endometrium until Nov. 13...
  • If the pregnancy test is positive, then we will continue the Endometrium for 12 weeks. (At least it isn't the shot)...
I see the calendar everyday. A constant reminder. Oh, Matt and I also have to sign the "thaw" form for our embryos. We have to sign the form that says we have not started divorce proceedings, etc. and that both Matt and I consent to the "thawing". I just think that is funny.

I haven't begun to think about next week. I don't want to. One day at a time. My friend, "A", found out today that she is not pregnant. Three embryos transferred and none implanted. I am just so sick about it. This was their fourth try. Fourth.

I am too! And I asked my ladies' Bible study group to pray for you, too. I will put it in Sunday School the week of the transfer.
