Hi everyone. Congrats on your transfer today believe! I hope this is the one for you. 10/5 will be here before you know it!

Sorry to hear your number isn't at 0 yet, ch'nara. Are you still bleeding? Sorry if that's too personal. My Dr just said often times you bleed until you hit 0. I'm still thinking of you

I had my saline ultrasound today. Not sure if the full name, but it's way long so you get the idea. It was SO much better than the hsg! Holy crap. Barely felt anything. Everything looked good in there- no polyps or leftovers from the early m/c. Talked about the next round after i got dressed. We are gonna jump right back in but with 300 gonal f instead of 200 a day. I'd love to have some to freeze this time. So we are on hold until my period starts. I think it will prob come the first weekend in Oct ( only bc we will be around s bunch of family that weekend and that's totally my luck) but who knows. I don't know whether to expect light or heavy. Everyone's story after an early mc is so different.

Happy to see this board having some action again :-)

We will probably be in the same schedule then, grace. I'm expecting to do my fresh transfer towards the end of the month. Fingers crossed for both of us!

I'm new here! I have my egg retrieval on either October 7, 8, or 9 and then my transfer exactly 5 days after that. This is my first time with IVF.

Hi ladies! I feel like I've been MIA since I haven't posted much lately, but actually I have been reading everyone's posts. I'm getting ready for my first FET on October 1st, and while it's really exciting, I am super nervous and anxious about it. The PIO shots are horrible and I'm just trying to make it through each one. I know we have a couple of other FETs scheduled in October. Wishing all of you the best of luck!

savylyjones - Welcome! Hope you're still feeling great while stimming. Good luck with your ER next week!

Chnara,

Thank you for checking on me. My beta came back over 3000! I was completely freaking out and held my breath for 2 weeks until the ultrasound. We saw THREE heartbeats! :omg:

Dr. F (who did the transfer) wants us to consider a fetal reduction. DH and I discussed it beforehand and we will not do that.

Next ultrasound is on Friday and then we get transferred to Maternal Fetal Specialist.
