GOOD NEWS!!!!!

Back in October I was scheduled for my transfer but it was canceled because my lining was 16mm. My RE wants it between 7-12 and anything outside of that he will not proceed. This month they lowered my estrogen in hopes of it helping my lining to be within that range. I had my u/s today and the first reading was 17! Higher than last month. I told him to keep looking (local RE) and the thinnest he could find was 15mm. I was heartbroken. He gave me a printout of my thick, empty uterus and cried while crumbling it. I just could not believe that this was happening again. I knew from the cycle that the RE was strict about this and my chances were one in a million to proceed this month. I called the nurse immediately to plead my case, begging them to consider letting me have the transfer on Sunday. Then I sat in my car and cried, begging God to change the RE's mind. Then I told Him I wanted His will, but to please, please, please allow this to be His will. I drove home, crying the whole way, wondering why. I went back to that scary place that I had lived for so long. The place of despair and hopelessness. Everything had lined up perfectly this month for me to travel. So many details have worked out, so why not this month?

I arrived home to wait for "the call". It didn't take long. The nurse said "How are you?" and I replied "I don't know yet. I am waiting for you to tell me.". She said that the RE was okay with proceeding. I almost dropped the phone!!!! She told me that she could hear the sadness in my voice when I left the message and she didn't want me to have to wait to hear so she talked to him right away. I cried again, but this time for joy! I was so happy to hear that we can do the transfer. This was a total God thing!!! I am so excited!!! Now just to finalize the details and pack for Friday morning. It looks like a friend can go with me so we will be driving and leaving super early. I am happy to not have to go alone. And super happy for answered prayers!
