Let's just say that my clinic must not do too many natural FET cycles. There was quite a bit of confusion around my ultrasound this morning. It is too exhausting to go into all the details, but if I didn't know enough to ask the right questions, I would have NO idea what was going on today. I would have walked out of there without knowing if I had any follicles, what my lining looked like, what the blood flow was measuring at-basically, if I still even had a uterus and ovaries.
Here's what I do know. My lining only measured at 2.3. While this is very thin, I also do not have a dominant follicle yet, which means I am not close to ovulating. The nurse didn't seem to know enough to tell me whether the lining is a concern this early on. Regardless, projected surge by February 26th and transfer by March 3rd is most likely not going to happen.
My blood flow measurements were fine (1.3 and 2.6) which I find interesting because I've gone back to eating chocolate. I know there isn't as much caffeine in chocolate as there is in coffee, tea or soda, but it is still something I was told to avoid at all costs. Since completely giving up caffeine during the last cycle didn't help at all, I said screw it. If I need to I'll go back to the electro-acupuncture, but it is not worth it to deprive myself of something I love that doesn't seem to be having an effect on the blood flow anyway.
They also drew blood, which I wasn't expecting, so I really don't know what they are checking for. Things were very disorganized this morning.
So now I wait for a call from the nurse after she has checked in with the doc this afternoon. I expect they'll tell me the results of whatever blood work they did and then give me instructions. Given that I don't have a dominant follicle yet, I'm really just expecting them to tell me to come back in for another ultrasound in a couple of days.
