Im sorry you had a miscarriage after your FET. that is so hard. :hugs:

My period is due in a week, then I go in for a Saline ultrasound, and a few days after that.. a pap and pelvic. Will start BCP as well. My OB was nice enough to sneak the infectious disease and hormone tests that the out of state RE wants, past my insurance. they pay for next to nothing fertility related, so its nice to catch a little break when I can. My viens are tiny so Im dreading going in for the blood work, they always end up taking it out of my hands.

I am traveling from portland oregon to Reno Nevada for a donor embryo FET! my history is in my siggy.. I feel like Ive been through the wars and this is sort of a last ditch attempt at a healthy pregnancy. Ive been getting weekly acupuncture and am taking chinese herbs.. trying to eat healthy and prepare my body for all of this.

Hi girls!

I'll be hopefully starting BC with next AF. She's here right now. We'll have to see with our funds if we're going to do our FET in May or June.

Best of luck everyone! :D

Seppie, were you and I on the boards together back about 2 years ago? I think I remember you from one of my cycle buddy groups! Love the profile pic, is that your little one? :)

Yes Jlojenjen! We were in an IVF group together in April 09. I was blessed to have IVF work on the first shot. That is my son. I was trying to update the pic but can't remember how :oops:
Anyway, we never had any frozen embies, and have been ttc since about June with no luck. We have been saving as this round of IVF is not covered by insurance :shock:
Here's to all of us getting BFP's!!!
:grouphug:
Where is everyone at?
Anybody start the bc pill yet?

Very cool, Seppie, it's nice to be in a cycle buddy group with you again :) I understand the insurance not paying issue. We have had ZERO coverage of the SEVEN attempts we've done. This latest is the most expensive, since we're going out of state to he Sher clinic, but it will all be worth it when we come home with a little one (or two) :)

So, ladies, I'm excited to hear everyone's stories, and get started on this cycle! Has anyone started any meds yet? Can't wait til the BFP's start rolling in!
