Here is whats been up!
Alright you are probably wondering WHAT the heck are the ERA results!!!
It’s been a little crazy these last few weeks, we received the results then was given more protocol to continue med’s then have a chemical bleed then begin prep for transfer numero 4!!
ERA results: Determined that a Day 7 transfer was my more optimal day! ! I’ll go more into detail about this later when I go over our transfer schedule!
with that being said we are out of the study completely, since the study only allows for a Day 6 transfer with no exceptions. Before you panic, YES we get to keep ALL the embryos we made during the study and are able to use them as we wish!
… and all it’s glory
You may be wondering does this REALLY need it’s own heading in BIG BOLD letters and the answer would be HELL YES it does. Where to begin.. hmm well I’ll just get right to it.
After the ERA cycle you are asked to continue estrogen per same protocol which for me was 1 by mouth 2 times daily and 1 vaginally 2 times daily. Instead of continuing PIO injections they put you on something called Provera another form of progesterone for 12 days after the ERA. This is to help get all the lining they have spent so much time building up to shed during this glorious chemical bleed! Imagine with me here, someone with a million needle nose pliers, through in a few fire torches along with a few scorpion stingers and you have your self a chemical bleed banaza! OK… fine I may be over exaggerating a tiny bit but in all honesty it was not fun, it hurt like hell, legs were numb, back hurt to walk around for long periods of time. Thankful when it was finally over and bleeding stopped. ok enough with all that.
Prep for transfer
Preparation for transfer #4 began July 18, 2019
I began Estrogen 1 tablet by mouth 2 times daily along with 1 tablet vaginally 2 times daily! Along with Estrodial patches that I change every 4 days!
I have been to 5 appointments and finally today we received the go ahead to schedule for our 4th transfer!
I will begin PIO injections Saturday August 10th at a prompt 10am and that will continue every day until our pregnancy test which is scheduled for August 26th !!
Since everything this round is so very day and time specific it’s very important to take your meds at the same time every day! Our transfer will be 148 hours +/- 3 hours from the time I begin PIO injections.
I’ll do the calculation for you: Transfer is Friday 8/16 at a prompt 11am !
BABY WOOD we want to meet you !
Pregnancy test is 8/26 at 8am ! Everything crossed except my legs!!! HAHA
