I am officially off bed rest, although I’m still trying to take it easy. I am getting up more and actually took a shower today and went to lunch, but other than that I’m still being pretty lazy. I also went to ccrm today to have my estrogen levels checked – per my request. On the day of transfer, my nurse called and told me that my estrogen level was 485 and they want it to be at 1,000 so they wanted me to go ahead and start my estrogen patches instead of waiting until the 19th. Well R and I have both been pretty worried about it so I emailed Julie this morning and asked if I should have it rechecked to make sure it’s getting better. She said that i shouldn’t worry, but I could have it checked if I wanted to…I wanted to! So she just called and told me that it is rising and it is now 680. It still worries me that it’s not to the 1,000 mark that she told me a couple of days ago, but she said to not worry that as long as it is rising it is okay. I guess I’ll take her word for it and trust the doctors at ccrm. Worrying certainly won’t help anything!
I’m feeling pretty good. I am cramping a little, but that is most likely the progesterone working so that’s a good thing!
We fly home tomorrow and I am so ready! I have really enjoyed my “vacation” but there is a lot to get done at home and I am ready to see my dogs! We sold our house today (wooohoo!) but now we have to get everything packed and moved in about 2 weeks! It’s going to be interesting considering I’m not allowed to lift anything over 10lbs! I’ll just take it slow and easy. At least it will be a magnificent distraction and hopefully the next nine days before my pregnancy test will go by quickly!
