ERA- CD 9 Bloodwork & ultrasound

My Lining is 7.8 on CD 9.  Bloodwork results- LH-  4.32 and E2- 119. Nurse said I have one follicle growing nicely so I go back on Sunday. Hoping that I ovulate on my own so I don't need the ovidrel (hcg trigger) injection. This ERA cycle is like a mock cycle. I will start PIO injections and estrace after I ovulate. Not sure when in relation to the biopsy procedure. Re said biopsy would be 7 days after ovulation. Loving this "Natural cycle" so far and that  I can skip the 3 weeks of del estrogen injections. That awful vaginal burning( allergic reaction in) was the worst and I am sure it was my body telling me something was wrong. Plus each bottle was $490 a bottle out of pocket.

Dr M finally got the gender from my last Chemical pregnancy. Normal Boy. Our first boy. All the others (from donor egg) have been girls. Funny because I had nicknamed him "Little Eric"

I have been doing my "Restoring fertility yoga" dvd again and Eric is teasing me about the breath of fire lol He imitates the drumbeats to a tee when I have the volume turned down. He cracks me up. I used to cue it up daily for 3 yrs in a row. I realized how much time has passed since I started it back in 2011 by the length of their hair! Mine was like Wendy Yu's when I started. Now even after cutting it 5 inches it's longer than the one lady's with the mid-back length.

CD 1 finally!

Finally! After 40 long days of waiting for my period after my chemical pregnancy. I start bloodwork and ultrasound for ERA cycle starting CD 9. Since I am trying to avoid del estrogen, will be doing a a natural cycle. Not looking forward to the every other day trips to my clinic for monitoring to detect my LH surge. Last time I did OPK's a year ago, I was surging CD 12 so fingers crossed my LH surge is early which means less ultrasounds!

October 15th- pregnancy and infant loss remembrance day

Tonight, Eric and I lit 8 candles for the Wave of light remembrance. One of the candles, had a flame that was much taller than the others and was "dancing"around and I could feel a strong presence in the room as though spirits were  trying to communicate with us.  Eric asked which baby did that candle represent and I replied "George/Georgia". In the photo I took, you can see an orb next to that candle on the upper left!
