This morning I had a rendezvous with my old friend, the ultrasound wand. The lining check went well – almost 10 mm, triple stripe. I’m pleased with that.
It makes me wonder though, what it would have been if I had actually followed my doctor’s instructions. I was never comfortable with 2 estrogen patches every other day, which is what I was told to use. I’ve been on estrogen patches before and 2 every other day just wasn’t enough, so we had a conversation and it wasn’t a negotiable subject. That’s the protocol, so that’s what I was given. I did a lot of reading and asking around and realized that many people have up to 4 patches a day. So, I increased it myself to three patches every other day. And when I went in, I had good results.
Now, I just have to get my acupuncture sorted out for the transfer. Apparently the clinic’s acupuncturist is not available the day of the transfer, so I have to do it elsewhere. Which is fine, but I really, really just loved the idea of having it done right there in the clinic. I have to let it go though, and just not stress about it, that’s just not an option whether I like it or not. I was getting really upset about it, as someone hopped up on hormones is wont to do, but I just have to be zen about it.
