What an Early, Happy Surprise!

I did take 2.5 months off to freshen up my uterine receptors per CCRM's protocal and added acupuncture weekly.  CCRM did say this would work for me in their professional opinion.  I remember I was thinking, that's it!?  No different meds?  No tests?  Just a couple months to deprieve my body?  OK...so here I am, taking the same meds, same protocal, with a more of a fresh start with holistic treatments supplementing 2.5 months later. 

I walk into FCI and of course, think here we go again.  I have no idea what I am going to walk into each day, but I couldn't imagine it any other way.  Though my lining has caused some trouble before, I know that this time could be different.  This is where I belong.  This is the priority.  SO I say hello to my family (FCI staff) who work there, hear about their families and weekend plans....I sit in the waiting room reading the usual gossip magazine to distract my thoughts and to clear my mind going into the ultrasound room in hopes my lining is growing. 

I lay down and talk to Patty, the ultrasound tech with that hint of hope and optimism in my voice.  The camera goes in and she is staring at the monitor as I stare at the ceiling.  She says, "Do you want to know what your lining is at?"  (With the biggest smile I have ever seen on her face)  I said well, with that smile, YES!  She said we have a triple stripe at 7.5mm (which I couldn't get before and haven't seen since last Aug/Sept. during a mock cycle)  I was in utter awe!  I could not believe that I had the triple stripe!  CCRM mentioned that is essential to have with all cases and they do not perform transfers without it!  SO here I am, with a triple stripe AND 7.5mm - and still time to grow more!  Dr. Uhler is elated!  She said this can't be the same uterus as before...wow!!  Impressed is an understatement.  I am on cloud 9!  I am pretty sure I floated out of the office....I don't want to jinx it, but I am praying things continue in this direction....all good things are ahead!  I can just feel it! 

This could most definitely be the one! :)
