I am 1dP5dt and feeling great. I took yesterday and today off to rest. Slightly crampy but nothing else to report. Blood test next Thursday :).

Just an update, our first round of IVF resulted in a BFN but we are staying hopeful.

I would love for you all to join us on the Fertility Friends proivate facebook group. I really want this group to be huge!!

https://www.facebook.com/groups/fertili ... tif_t=like

For those that got a BFN, how long after your BFN blood test and stopping meds did AF come? I am almost a week and still no AF although I have had symptoms of it.

We are taking a few months off because we have to do a hysterioscopy first to explore the uterus further and biopsy the tissue. He said he is hopeful that we wikll get pregnant and was actually very suprised it didn't take. That's the scary part for me...if even the dr is stumped...I keep thinking I will never get my chance. Keeping my fingers crossed.

How is everyone doing?

SGordon: Just wanted to pop in and say how sorry I am about your BFN. I've been there. During my fresh cycle in August, we put back 2 (one later ended up testing normal by CGH) and it didn't take. After withdrawing meds, it can take between 3 and 10 days for AF to show.

It's frustrating even w PGS and knowing a healthy was transferred we still have BFN!! I'm hoping your last one took! Praying for you. AF coming and I feel like crapola!!! Like as if it's not bad enough. Biggg to you for everything you have been through. This was my first ivf round and I already feel like giving up but I know I can't!! We have one healthy frozen and one no result still frozen. Did you ever retest the no result ones? We are going to transfer both when we do again and pray healthy sticks.

I have a follow up this Friday to discuss the next step. We will definitely transfer the one healthy embryo. We still have one that didn't test bc they didn't detect DNA (could still be healthy, but could not also). We are debating on transfering that one also. The doc through Feb would probably be our next tentative transfer date but not sure. I know we will definitely amp up the progesterone with suppositories and injections...fun fun :).

Plattis and wishing...how exciting you guys are so close together!!!
Tammy, any thought as to why round 1 didn't work? Of course I Have a million things going through my head...did I do this, was it that, could it have been this, is it stress, etc etc.

Hi Sgordon

We are about to embark on our first FET but alas it is our third transfer! IVF with donor eggs from Sept was a BFN and then after switching RE's I had a chemical with our first IVF try with our new set of donor eggs but

My baseline is the March 3rd! I

I have in my aresnal:

One 6 day/AA ( a slow grower but my only AA)
One 6 day/BB blast
Three 5 day/BB blasts

So we are hoping to transfer the one 6 day/AA and one 5 day/BB and praying one sticks!

Good luck to you and hope to see your BFP soon!
