Where did my lining go?

I had my baseline appointment bright and early this morning. Seeing how my period still has not started, I expected them to see a thick lining on ultrasound and to tell me that I need to call once my period arrives so I can get another scan. I was positive I'd be delayed just like I was my first FET.

That didn't happen.

I'm shocked because my lining was only at 4mm and looked great to start estrace. I am just waiting for the bloodwork to confirm this. Fingers crossed!

Where in the heck does this lining go if I don't have a period? Did it just disappear into thin air? Did I digest it with the food I ate last night? LOL

Oh well, I'll quit asking questions and just go with it! I'm just going with the flow this cycle because I realize I can't make my body do anything it doesn't want to. It is what it is and in this case it's a good thing!

My RE moved to a new facility in Austin and today was my first visit there. It's really nice! I will be able to have my transfer at this location instead of having to drive 1.5 hours to the San Antonio location like I have been doing so far. It's a major load off my shoulders to know it's going to be a breeze to get to and back. And the icing on the cake is that I even found out they can do the bloodwork in-house. I should be getting a call with the estrogen levels in a couple of hours.

Happy Friday!

  1. Wow that's great! I'm not sure why it would be so thin, reabsorbed by the body some how maybe? Or made thin by bcp maybe? Whatever, I guess that means you're a step ahead of where you thought! YAY!

  2. That's great! I also did not a period before this FET because my lining was only 2.5! I have no clue where it went...I think it forgot how to grow without drugs

    1. LOL maybe that's my body's problem. I realized I've only had one or two natural cycles in the past year with no meds! Crazy!

  3. Hi Liz, I just found your blog. I did an internet search for "embryo donation Austin" and your blog was in the results. Could you share the name of your RE and/or the clinic? Four years ago when I was 36 and trying to conceive, I found out I was going through premature menopause. Since then I've tried to come to terms with not having kids due to my then-husband's opposition to egg donation or adoption. But now I'm divorced and reconsidering all options. A friend encouraged me to look into embryo donation. :)

    1. Hi there - I'll be happy to talk to you about my clinic over email. But I'll warn you that they don't actually have an in-house donor embryo program. I had to find my own and they worked with me, but they don't have any there. There is another clinic in Austin who has been in the process of starting a donor embryo program, but they have been saying that for a year now. I also know of a clinic in Houston who has an embryo program with available embryos. If you want to email me at wishingonasnowflake at gmail dot com, I will be happy to discuss. Good luck! :)
