Well, as of yesterday my numbers went up to over 770. I'm having a few symptoms. However, they might just be related to the and estroge.n patches I'm still taking. I switched over to the suppositories for the prog. My ass had started developing cyst-like welts at every injection site. I had been getting two shots every day - that got to be a bit too much. Now I just have to stick the little pill up my hoo-ha 3 times a day. My RE doesn't want me back for a third round of bloodwork this week. I was pleasantly surprised at that. I asked to go in for more bw next week just to make sure things still look ok. My ultrasound is on the 13th. I will feel much better once that is over. I will be 7 weeks then. When I had my u/s back in July, I was supposed to be 8 weeks and there was no baby or heartbeat. I just want to get beyond that stage this time.

Ummm, I Think I'm Pregnant

Ok, remember how back in late May, I had 2 embies transferred and ended up with a beta of 27ish? Well, I had my one frostie thawed and transferred on the 15th of this month. I had my beta today and it was 335. I can't believe that one little embryo made it! I'm trying not to get too excited about this. I go back in two days (Wed.) for a second beta.

The Outlaws

Sorry I've been away so long. My in-laws were here for 3 weeks. They were staying in the guest room where my computer is also located. I don't know if I mentioned it in a previous blog, but I think 5 days is plenty of time for a visit with the out-laws. My mil drives me batty. I got to hear for 3 weeks straight how lucky I am to have married her son. I got to the point where I just completely shut down and barely said a word. Believe me, she said enough for both of us.

I'm still on the drugs for the FET. I think (hope) it will be next week. I'm getting tired of wearing the estro.gen patches. I'm up to four now, and my skin on my abdomen is getting pretty scary looking. I must say that the estro.gen has helped to ward off the evil spirits that haunt me (aka lup.ron). Life was not fun at my house when I was just doing those injections. The patches seem to have evened things out for me. I think A is willing to stay in the same house with me for then next few weeks. It was touch-and-go there for a while. I go in for an us and bw on Thursday to determine how things are looking.
