Hi Gals-

I had my US and blood work Sat. My lining is a 9.5 already (she said it just needs to be above an 8)and we aren't supposed to do the transfer until 12/2???? I go in again Tues...my Doc said they might want to move up the date-do ya think?! I'm worried b/c I feel like I'm ovulating (I'm on day 14 today). What happens if I ovulate? Does the cycle have to be cancelled??? I hate the thought of having to take extra meds just b/c of a holiday and Doc's vacation schedule....

One question first........did the dr say what the pattern of your lining was? 9.5 mm is great. My lining was only 7 mm. In addition to the thickness, the pattern is important. The lining goes through changes during your cycle. When you transfer, you want the lining to be TL (triple lined). After transfer, you want your lining to convert to HH (really long word/medical term). The HH pattern means that your lining is absorbing the progesterone.

Now if your lining is not TL yet then you can stand to wait a few more days. If your lining is already TL then you should demand that your doctor do the transfer within the next couple of days. I say the next couple of days because you can't do it tomorrow. You have to start taking progesterone a couple of days prior to transfer. If you wait til December 2nd, I think you're going to ovulate prior to the FET. If this happens, the cycle will be canceled.

Theoretically, the estrace should prevent ovulation. But it can't prevent it forever. In addition, I've known people to ovulate on the estrace. This is why I did one of my cycles with lupron in addition to the estrace. I didn't want the hearbreak of canceling the cycle.

Keep us posted.

Bonnie,
I really hope you don't get cancelled and that everything goes smoothly. Try not to stress (imagine that coming from me?!!) but really.

Thinking of you...
