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!
