Hope, I also had moderate OHSS after both of my egg retrievals...I found it to be the most bizarre and non-intuitive sickness!
And yes, my transfer is scheduled for March 14th : )

Hey Hope! I'm on BCPs and Lupron to adequately shut my ovaries/ system down. My RE notices that I tend to still ovulate on BCPs!! So the lupron is a sure fire way for my body to recognize "shutting down."

Hi ladies, I finally had some quiet time to read through the March board and catch up with everyone's cycle. I realised that all of you are scheduling FET's. At least this way your body's are more rested.

Littlebitty - you have such a great attitude knowing what your mum is going through. You clearly get your strength from her. I will be praying for your successful cycle and and a beautiful take home baby.

Johnnyswifey- I'm so sorry to read about your losses, it's a tough ride. That's quite a long protocol you've got for a FET. Have you had an Endo scratch before? I had one on Friday last week and it wasn't pleasant.
How many embryos are you planning on transferring this time?

Hopinghard- I'm sorry your cycle was cancelled, IVF is so unpredictable. How many eggs do you have frozen? Hope your recovery is going well post retrieval.

Frozen - love your girl/boy profile name! I'd guessed it before I read what you had frozen. I'm with you on transferring two. I will be 37 this year too and if I get the chance, I'm going to transfer at least 2! I'm really sorry to read about your father :hugs:

HopeSIN - I'm not so familiar with all the US meds, when I did my FET it was quite a natural cycle with only trigger and Progesterone. I don't believe you will ovulate but if you have any concerns you should speak to your clinic for assurance.

Doodle - I bet you can't wait to get going after a long delay. Sorry about OHSS. I'm also waiting for AF, hopefully should be here by Friday!

Blessed - congratulations on your ER. Are you going to call for an update? Surely you don't have to wait until next week, tomorrow is already day 5.... fingers crossed for a great report.


I don't really have any updates, I'm on day 5 of injections. Waiting for the side effects but nothing yet. I read somewhere that Decapeptyl is the evil cousin of Lupron.... I'm mentally preparing myself :D

Thanks mama. Yes I've had 2 scratches before and neither were pleasant! Not sure why my protocol is so long but I'm assuming because my RE is adding medrol to my treatment it may delay things. But I really don't know. Still only transferring one baby

How is everyone doing?

Over here, I'm only on CD4 and I the days seem to go by super slow (even though it's very busy at work). I'm gonna have my FET on 18th of March, so still quite a while to go.
Question those of you on medicated/controlled FET cycles - how many ultrasounds do you have before the FET and on what CD are you FETs planned? Have a great day ahead (it's already morning here in Asia ;-)

Of course that makes sense... for me, the wait for embryo growth is the hardest part of the whole process (until end result) You've done well so far and it's only a couple more days. In the meantime, keep yourself distracted!

Welcome Beitun2me! Your transfer will be just 2 days after mine!!

HOPESin, My doc usually has me in once a week for the three weeks prior to transfer for blood work and ultrasounds.

Speaking of which, I had my ultrasound and blood work done yesterday and everything looks good. My lining was 10.3 and I've still got 2 weeks to go, so I'm pretty excited about that!! Getting into the final stretch!

I'm pretty excited about it JohnnysWifey! I think this is the thickest my lining has EVER been, and I'm still 2 weeks out. The only thing I've been doing differently is I pulled out my juicer and I've been drinking veggie juice about 4-5 times a week. I wonder if that's what's improved it?

Thanks littlebitty. Yes it is so close! A little about my IVF journey. This will be for our 2nd and more than likely last baby. Hubby and I did a mini IVF in October 2014. 7 eggs all took. 6 made it to day 5. We transferred 1 (froze the other 5) and welcomed our beautiful baby girl in June 2015! We have also chose to transfer 1 this time. All the emotions are starting to feel very familiar!
