Finding the right image is hard sometimes isn't it?... it never quite captures the mood, and one of my ugly mug is not right either, and quite frankly you see enough of it! SO I chose this #ttclookforbeauty
. It's one of the few flowers that actually bloom in our garden but it is rather pretty and it’s all about looking for the positive!
So an update (which you can also get over on stories), this cycle is OFF!
A pesky cyst on my left ovary seems to be the cause of the spike in progesterone, not the DHEA. Everything else looked pretty damn good, lining, other hormone readings, thyroid, just not the progesterone! After my bloods came back, they gave us the choice of going ahead with a natural IVF cycle (again) this cycle, OR waiting and doing a flare next cycle. They sort of left it up to us to decide, which I didn't find very acceptable. I mean we are paying them a ridiculous amount of money to give us the best possible care and advice and that's what we want. We want them to make a decision for us based on our history and their expert knowledge. And eventually they did. A consultant I really trust and who is always super honest with me, said that we should wait, and that's what we will do. We feel comfortable with that, because our gut told us that was the best thing to do. I think the thing that you forget when you go back into treatment after having been away, is the daily up and down! The good news one minute, the bad news the next, the constant rollercoaster of results, living on a thin wire of emotion! You forget, you really do, and however good a "space" you are in, it's hard for it not to affect you, however many times you have done it!
So we're glad to have a bloody decision! It's only another three weeks, and that's three weeks of goodness and being good to ourselves, so we'll take that! Surely then the stars will align!
Thanks for all the lovely messages. Legends as always!
