Stupid Fluffy Bunny.

Well, the bunny I previously posted didn't have any fluffy magical powers.

I just had the ultrasound to check the thickness of my lining for our mock cycle (natural, no meds). It only measured 4.87 mm. Pretty much the same as it was when I was taking estradiol before our canceled transfer last month. So now tomorrow I have to go to my OB for an endometrial biopsy.

I am so disappointed in my body, scared of tomorrow's procedure and what it will say, and confused as to why is this happening. What if I can't be a surrogate because of this? I'm sure Dr. Lavy knows what he's doing, but I want to know why other surros are on several estrogen pills a day plus patches plus vaginal supps plus baby aspirin...some even on delestrogen injections. Why did I only have two estradiol pills a day during my medicated cycle?

This sucks. :(

P.S. I do not recommend Google imaging "shaved bunny." Unless you're in the mood for a little internet porn. Then by all means, Google away, my friend!

UPDATE: The RE's office called to say they'd prefer I have the biopsy done on Friday, since that will be 10 days after ovulation, which is consistent with the implantation date in a natural cycle. Fortunately, my OB's office was very accommodating and rescheduled my appointment for Friday morning. Unfortunately, that gives me two extra days to worry about it! I just want to get it over with!


  1. :( I'm sorry you are feeling down and frustrated. Maybe ask Dr. Lavy why he doesn't use more IVF meds. I hope whatever is going on can be resolved and you can move forward with your surrogacy dreams.

    1. Thanks Melissa! I'm trying to stay positive and realize that the RE or my IP's could have given up on me and chosen to go with another surrogate, but they aren't. They're trying to gather information to fix the problem, so that we can continue on this journey together. I'm so thankful for that!

  2. So sorry Becca. I was also only on 2 estradiol pills per day - same result for my mock. I dont understand why they cant change to protocols either.
