cd 14... updates...

Saw the nurse again today on cd 14. My u/s shower several growing follies... I had a 15, 13, 11, 10 & 9 on the right and a 13, 10, & 8 on the left. This time the u/s nurse said "you have a lot going on in there... what meds are you on? Just clomid... wow... I thought maybe you were doing injectables." The only slight problem is that my lining was pretty thin... three days ago it was a 7 and today it was a 3.9... The nurse put me on an estrogen patch and said to expect my boobs to swell.. a lot. greaaaaaat. But the patch should also cause that lining to thicken back up. I also got my day 10 FSH and estridol numbers back... FSH was 6.2... under 10 is normal and my estridol had risen (I think she said it was in the 250's) so that is also normal. So I am not in menopause... I did not fry up all my eggs in the early 90's in the tanning bed.

The plan is to keep ding my OPK's and call when I have a surge or go in for another u/s on Friday whichever comes first. Then I will get my very first hcg trigger and have sex... a lot. Hopefully the patch and the progesterone supplements (after I "O") will do their jobs.

Hope.

On the way home I started crying about my normal FSH results... just pure relief. Mr. D. looked over at me and said "wow... that patch works fast." Then we went to breakfast to celebrate how normal I am.

UPDATE - My husband rocks! He had this whole undercover birthday plan for me this afternoon. Since I turn 35 tomorrow he decided to spoil me like crazy today. School was out today for a "teacher workday" which at my school means that I have the day off. Unbeknownst to me he made AMAZING plans for our afternoon! Ok... so we all know I am a spa girl right? Well today Mr. D. took that to the extreme. We went to lunch about 11:30 in a really ritzy little area near us... I wasn't hungry but Mr. D. kept pestering me to eat... saying that I would need something to tide me over until dinner. So after lunch we walked all the little shops until we can across this brand new spa... He had me set up for the works!!! He dropped me off at 12:30 and they told him to come back for me at 4:00! After I changed i to my plush robe and slippers I had a wonderful eucalyptus foot soak in the relaxation room. Then my treatments began...

First I had this:

field of lavender dreams
90 minutes
The calming and balancing benefits of lavender create an unparalleled, all-encompassing spa experience, one that fully engages the senses and nourishes your body. Our sublime body-pampering treatment includes a two-step exfoliation, a hot stone back treatment, a warm, cocooning wrap, and a luxurious massage. 90 minutes of pure indulgence – therapy for the mind, body and spirit.


Then I took a break in the relaxation room again for about 15 minutes and then I had this:

the essential massage
60 minutes
A truly soothing transformation for the body and mind, and ideal for those new to massage therapy. Our essential massage utilizes classic Swedish massage techniques to ease away stress and tension, relaxing tired muscles, improving circulation and restoring emotional balance. Leaves your mind settled and your body wonderfully revitalized.


So if it sounds like I had a 90 minute massage and then a 15 minute break and the a 60 minute massage... yep.. that is what it was! HEAVEN!!! omg... I couldn't have dreamed for more... it was unbelievable! This spa is so nice... first class all the way... so if you have one near you I highly recommend it. I didn't have a pedicure but the pedicure chairs at this place recline all the way back... like a bed!!! After all the pampering Mr. D. picked me up and we went to a lovely pizza dinner at Brio. Anyway, I cannot say enough nice things about the spa... or about my fantastic husband who just goes over the top (and broke the bank) for me to have such a great day. AAANNNNDDD... he says there is more coming tomorrow on my actual birthday day! I am the luckiest wife in the world.

So.. my last day as 34 was an awesome day...
Thank you Mr. D. for all the wonderful things you do for me. I love you so much.

Maybe 35 will be the best year yet.

oh I am so happy to hear all of this for you. Incidentally all my U/S go like that, "what are you taking" "Clomid 150 mg" ..."really???? Because we normally see follicles like these on injectables"..
so it's good news! Plus when I take Clomid I also take 6 mg of Estrogen a day, my linings have been awesome...I mean I know I'm not PG yet but the numbers game is getting there.

SO I am so glad to see all these good numbers for you..your miracle is coming.

GOOD LUCK

So you get the estrogen patch for thin lining on clomid, well, I got viagra. It worked, but the next moth and every month thereafter I have had no lining problems.

Best of luck and Happy B-Day.

Glad to hear your follicles are doing so well. Clomid is an estrogen inhibitor, which is why you're having problems with lining. I hope the estrogen does the job.
