Update from Colorado

My lining is a 9.8mm.  The doppler showed normal blood flow to my uterus! Before it was recorded to be below what they wanted and had some backflow.

The acupuncture protocol and eliminating caffiene was supposed to improve this and it looks like it did. Or, maybe it was a fluke. Who knows.  (Updated to add: Or maybe it is the Lovenox and baby Asprin?)

Now we wait for the early fertilization report tomorrow.  

Something interesting that I learned from the nurse today was about day 3 transfers. I always thought that day 3 transfers were done if the embryos weren't growing well. The nurse said that in donor cycles that isn't the case (usually). She said that sometimes they grow too quickly so they need to be transferred sooner. This happens only 5% of the time. She said that their success rates in donor cycles with day 3 vs. 5 embryos were the same. 

We celebrated our good news (or rather lack of bad news I suppose) with some refined white carbs, at Ihop.  Not the healthiest, but it tasted good! 


  1. mmmm I love refined white carbs (so does my butt apparently because it stores every single ounce it can)

    Glad things are going well!

  2. Yay! Can't wait for the report!

  3. So glad things are going so well!! Thinking of you for a great fert report! I'm going to be checking in often to see what it is!


I'm interested in what you have to say
