Mid-Cycle Update

Thanks for all your wonderful support. It makes each day easier. I had an u/s yesterday (stim day 7). All is going well. I have 4-6 follicles that should be ready Monday with several small ones to follow. My lining measured .7 which is great for me (supplementing with estrace). I hope it will be at least .9 by the next check tomorrow (Monday). I expect that I will trigger Monday or Tuesday night, with ER being Wednesday or Thursday! More good news to come…The past few days have been quite trying. The cycle is going flawless and then we get hit with several major family events. My MIL is hospitalized with a ruptured disc (has to have surgery Monday). My husband’s uncle has cancer and is given 2-3 weeks to live. My husband’s grandfather is taking a turn for the worse. They are all out of town and we have busy work schedules to manage too.Since I have another u/s on Monday morning, DH and I drove separately to my MIL’s on Saturday. I drove home today and he will be there for her surgery on Monday. I feel badly I am not with them. DH has to be home in time to give me my hCG IM injection and take off work again for the retrieval and transfer (next week). I know everything will work out, but I’m a little stressed and do not want this to affect my state of mind for the ER/ET. This too shall pass…
Thanks for helping me stay positive. I'm determined to have a different outcome with this cycle!

I truly believe the statement that when it rains it pours, but I feel like this time is going to be great for you! It sounds like things are working out well with this IVF and I fully believe you can handle it all. It\'s a lot, but you are a strong woman! When my plate becomes overflowing I like to just roar a little inside. Try it, you\'ll like it! :)
