Well, my FET has been scheduled for next Monday. I won't know the exact time until Sunday, but everything looked good today for a Monday transfer. Today's appointment was to check my uterine lining, take some blood to measure my progesterone level, and show my mom, my sister, and Michael's mom how to give me my progesterone in oil (PIO) shots. Those need to be given twice a day, so the more people who know how to do it, the better.
I have been suffering from terrible insomnia and it turns out it's because of a steroid the doctor has me on. Darn thing makes my heart race and keeps me up half the night, and once I do fall asleep I have bizarre dreams. I love my sleep and I am usually blessed with good sleep habits, so the last couple of weeks have been really hard. I've only got a few more days on this steroid, but then I have to start another next week. Fortunately, the nurse said I could take Unisom. I hope it helps me tonight.
I've been making a real effort to pamper myself, eat well, and relax. I've been going in for a massage and/or reflexology at least once a week for the last three or four weeks in addition to my twice weekly acupuncture treatments. Friday will be my last spa day for a while. My sweet friend Peggy and I will enjoy a morning at Burke Williams then. I'm really looking forward to it.
I'm feeling good about the transfer. This will be my seventh ART attempt at getting pregnant. I know what to expect, and I also know that I have no control over the outcome. I have done the best I can do. The outcome is up to the Lord and I'm okay with that right now. I do covet your prayers for my continued peace of mind and an outcome that glorifies God.
