Knock me over with a feather…

OK, so the FET was a big wash out and I was waiting for AF.  My temperature was still up, but of course,  that was just because I couldn’t pinpoint ovulation accurately thanks to the progesterone.  I let myself entertain the idea that I might be pregnant – Ha – just after shelling out $ooo’s for my failed IVF.  After all, this month I had finally got my Estrogen – at my requst – and it HAD got my lining to 12mm.  I’m sure you can imagine my reaction – or lack of  – when this happened:

img_4942I CAN NOT believe that I am pregnant!

I will be 42 next month.

We’re not out of the woods, of course, as my Beta was only 54 at 14dpo, but we have lift off.  And I have sooo many answers now, that if this fails, I will get straight back up again.  Bottom line Ladies is trust yourself.  You know far more about your body than any FS/RE.  Don’t be intimidated like I was and sit back assuming that they know best when your instinct tells you otherwise.  I am informed and knowledgeable and still got taken for a ride.  I dread to think how many girls are out there in the system going through the motions because they don’t know to question things.  Ultimately no-one is going to try as hard as you are to gt your baby.

At the end of the day my RE insisted that at 9mm my lining was fine.  I had to insist that for me a 36-48hr period (despite measuring 9mm) was not fine.  I insisted on the Estrogen and Voila!

Don’t get me wrong.  I don’t think my RE did it on purpose but ultimately he couldn’t get past my age and therefore didn’t try to ‘solve’ my problem as to him the problem was being 41!!


I started back on Progesterone today just to b safe 🙂
