The FET cycle continues! We had the ‘sign all the things’ and ‘let’s look at your lining and ovaries’ appointment yesterday which all went well. Ovaries dormant (phew, I was worried about cysts, as per usual). Uterus prepped, with a 10.1 mm lining, nicely trilaminar. Pronounced “lovely”.
My last lupron shot is tonight, and I start progesterone tomorrow, and start dwindling the number of estrogen patches too. So I guess today is my synthetic ovulation day. Hurray?
I’ll have to do the first two progesterone shots myself, as I’m out of town without Pea. Ladies who have done this – suggestions welcome. I’ll ice the area, and I’m not worried about needles, but it’s an awkward spot to get to. The RN suggested I sit down for it – easier to crane around.
Again, until our slow-growing, poor quality little blast makes it through the thaw, I’m not going to give this FET much of my mental energy. If it does, it’s as good as any blast out there, and I’ll invest in this cycle.
Insurance billing and payment for our IVF cycle isn’t processed yet (sigh), so we had to guess as to whether billing insurance or paying the reduced out of pocket rate would be cheaper – our best guess was that we’ve probably maxed our coverage, so we paid out of pocket. And so it begins, I cannot help but feel. The decisions about things we can afford but that are exorbitant, and that other people get for free.
