May IVF / Transfer?

Postby EliRivers » Sun Apr 23, 2017 7:23 pm

Hello all - wondering if anyone else was doing May IVF or transferring. I just started injections today, with a ramp up to *hopefully* egg collection the week of May 15, and embryo transfer (fxfxfxfx!) the following week. Hoping for a few internet buddies to go ride this roller coaster with :)

Hi Ladies,
I'm new to the site but very excited to find it and share experiences with other women going through it. I'm 41 and had my 5 day blastocyst FET yesterday (05/24). My beta is scheduled for June 5th since the normal day will be falling on a weekend, so that will be 12 days post transfer instead of the normal 10. This is our second round of ivf. Our first round last year didn't get to this point bc pgs testing resulted in both of our embryos being abnormal (no surprise given my age). This time we have 3 normal embryos. Our RE only transfers 1 since we know they are chromosomally normal. How is the tww going for you all? Any symptoms, and if so, how many days post transfer?

Hi ladies! I'm new to this thread and just starting off my TWW.
Lisa- I had my FET yesterday also, so I'm right there with you at 1dp5dt today!
I'm finding it really hard to just relax and avoid symptom spotting, probably because I'm being neurotic trying to find any symptoms, but nothing really going on. Just tired, but I suspect being a couch potato on bedrest is to blame!
Hope everyone is feeling good today!

So glad we are in the same boat! Thanks for replying. My only symptom (obviously super early) is from the PIO shots. Really sore on both sides, which makes laying around much less comfy than it would be otherwise. I go back to work tomorrow but per MDs orders, laying around today. Sending baby dust to you all! When is everyone scheduled for their beta?

Lisa- I feel you on the PIO shot pain! During my FET #1 the pain was so bad I could barely walk! I had been doing heating pad before and after, plus massage, but no relief :( FET #2 we switched it up to icing before and heating afterwards, which worked much better for me. This FET #3 my protocol is different and I only do the PIO shots every other day & alternating sides, so it feels like much more recovery time. Hope you can find a system that'll make it most manageable for you!
Beta is 6/2 for me.

Just checking in to see how everyone is doing. Today I'm 4d post transfer. No spotting or anything unusual outside of occasional cramping and I seem to be thirsty around the clock. Thanks for the tips on the PIO. We are doing ice before and massaging and heat after, so sounds like that actually worked best for you. We may stick w that. We will be heading to D.C. Tuesday for a few days, so hopefully that will keep my mind busy during this TWW. We plan to test when we get home since we technically will be due for our beta even though we can't do beta until 06/05. Hoping it's positive.

Lisa: A little getaway sounds great and I'm sure it'll help distract you from everything. Have fun! 5dp5dt for me today and I'm not feeling much either... bbs sore (but they were sore before ET) and the *very* occasional twinge/ping/cramp. I'm thinking I'll test on Thursday or Friday in advance of Friday's beta...if I can hold out until then!

Thank you so much!
I had sent you a congrats message when I saw your beta, but it doesn't look like it posted. Weird. I'm so happy for you.
We are waiting for the doctor to call.
