Mid-cycle scan

Our mid-cycle scan was on September 3rd.

Good news: 2 mature follicles, one on the right measuring 21 and one on the left measuring 20.

Bad news: Lining is only measuring 5mm.

The nurse said she's not happy to see the lining measurement, but it's not impossible to become pregnant. We know this will not work in our favor. I think it's good to at least be able to focus on what is most likely causing the problem. I've been reading a lot about the use of viagra suppositories to treat lining issues. A friend of mine who has done IVF told me that they took her lining from 8mm to 14mm in only 3 days!

I'm guessing that this cycle will probably be a bust, so I am making a list of things for us to ask Dr. Dunn when we go back on the 19th. I'm definitely going to see what he thinks of using viagra. I feel confident that if we can get my lining above 8mm, I can get pregnant. I think.

I think it's all about the lining too! But I'm not giving up hope on this cycle yet....14dpo!!
