I am 35 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. I also struggled with PPD and now struggle with PMDD. I am a mother to a son that was born at 18 weeks and too precious for this earth; and now a mother to a son born in August 2011. By journaling here, I hope to benefit both for myself and for others that are dealing with this disease and fertility struggles. Thanks for visiting!

Okay, another appointment set for Sunday AM to see if a follicle will just "pop" up.  Ughhhhhhhhhhhhh.  So, definitely won't be a Monday transfer.  Why isn't my either one of my ovaries making a goof follicle?  How will it make a mature follicle from under 10mm in two days?  Is that even possible?  I don't mind paying for another pen....if this is going to happen.  Really, at this point, I need to buy one "just in case".

Oh no, I was just catching up on your post and going to congratulate you on the great lining! I hope your ovaries can pull it together and get things going for you. Keeping my fingers crossed!

big hugs!! happy your lining is great though!! Just a little encouragement...a follicle can grow from 2-4mm a day. So hopefully one will decide to take the lead and grow to 16 which could be considered mature. I'm so confused though why you have to have a mature follicle if you are doing a FET. Can't they just give you the hcg shot and then transfer at the right dpo? hang in there!!
