Resolving Cyst - IVF Cancelled Cycle Part 2

Hey Everyone,

Thank you so much for the kind words yesterday.  I am still extremely sad that I don't get started, but happy they have this protocol in place to catch things like this so that my "baby maker" is in perfect condition to get started with IVF.  I spoke with my doctor this morning and she told me the resolving cyst on my left ovary is the reason things are all out of whack this month.  My lining was a little bit too thick and that follicle had already started growing along with my estrogen being too high.  It needs to be under 50 and mine was at 70.  Damn you cyst...Damn you!

She said the majority of the time these cyst will be gone by the next cycle and that will solve all the other problems.  That is why there is no other changes will be made until we get started next month.  The good news of all this is the trial transfer went "well" (painful, but went okay)...this involves the steps they would take during the actual transfer, just without the embryos.  You have to make sure your bladder is full to the brim so that they can get the embryos up to the uterus.  Apparently one full water bottle between Fort Atkinson and Madison did the trick, she said it was perfect.

Anyways, I am so excited to have a visitor coming this weekend (from the BIG CITY) who I know will help take my mind off of all this.  She has this amazing talent to always bring an excitement for fun activities and fun we will have!  We have set up to go visit my sister-in-law and we are going to A Stroke of Genius which is a place you go and everyone paints together the same artwork.  They also serve WINE!  You better believe I will be indulging in that!

What is one more month in the scheme of the rest of my life.  Right!?!  I still believe there is a plan for me...it is one off the wall unusual plan, but I know once we get our baby/ies they will be the most loved baby/ies on earth!  (After I scold them for taking so long :).)

Bummer about the cyst. Best to know this now rather than after you get underway. You don't want to waste any of those meds- they are expensive!! Yes you won't remember this month once your pregnant and on your way:) have fun this weekend!!! I did one of those painting things and had so much fun!!! It will be a great way to get your mind off of things for a while. Cheers!!
