I don't even know what this means

I'm just sick. I went in today for my ultra sound to make sure that I don't have any ovarian cysts. The good news is that I don't. The bad news is that my uterine lining is thickened for some reason. Now I have to try to find someplace that can draw my blood and measure my estrogen and progesteren levels.

I don't even know what's going on. They might be able to adjust my meds and get me back on track but that's a best case scenario. I might have to do more birth control but then that throws off the egg donor stuff and I don't even know what they do then.

The nurse at the RE's office said that this is pretty rare but that it does happen. I just feel like I've somehow gone and screwed something up.

I don't know what to do.

Get the tests done. They just want to be sure that there isn't any abnormal cell growth going on in there.

In nine out of ten cases, a thick uterine lining is just a by product of age. A heavy excess of estrogen can also be a culprit. So...they need to figure out what is causing it.

Always a good idea to check anything out that is unusual. But, as I said, it is rarely anything serious.

Stay cool. Get the tests. One foot in front of the other.

Relax! You are doing great. Your courage is amazing and you should be so very proud of yourself. Take a hot bath and relax you are doing everything perfectly with this whole thing.

I found you via Mrs Schmitty. Love your blog, there's something very familiar about it!

Whatever happens with your body it's not your fault, and if it throws off the egg donor, then it throws off the egg donor and yeah, it sucks that it will have to take longer, but you'll get there. So, relax and try not to let it stress you out too much.
