Appointments scheduled....now we wait

I called to get my lining scan scheduled. It is for Monday, the 21st. I will get my blood drawn first then head across the street for u/s. Then I wait for "the call". The call that will tell me if all is fine and if we can proceed. This time I won't be blindsided though as I will know to ask the RE what my lining is before I leave. And if it is over 12 but close I am going to ask that he remeasure. From what I understand (from the 'expert' Dr. Google) is that you can get different measurements in different places of the uterus. If one area says 13 but one says 12, let's go with 12. Also, I found my records from my last FET and an trying to decipher it to determine what my lining was back then. The only thing that I have from that date is the pic from the u/s and I have no idea how to figure out what or if my lining is even listed on there. I am sure that it must be, but I don't have the code to break it. So I am going to ask my RE. If my lining was thick then and is thick now I am planning on doing some begging.

Once I know for sure we are a go I will buy my tickets. I need to fly out on Friday the 25th, transfer on Sunday, home on Monday. That means that Saturday will be mine. All mine. Just me!!! And the beach! So Florida, please be kind and have nice weather. My Nook and I would like to come and visit. I won't bother you, I just want to watch you while I read a good book. Now if I only had someone to fan me with leaves and feed me grapes. ;)


  1. Oh I'm so excited for you! i know you have a ton of things to line up before you can go, which is probably good so it keeps your mind busy! I'll be thinking of you though and hoping that it is smooth sailing from here!

  2. Praying for good results. I don't know that lining thickness is all that important. I think every woman's normal may be different. My lining was a little less than 6 at the time if transfer when I conceived. I didn't know any better then, but now know that most REs won't go forward unless it is 8 or more. Enjoy your beach day!

  3. Can't wait to hear your results! My lining was 12 and I am 19 weeks pregnant!!


I love comments! They make me feel important.
