Welcome Geeky,is definitely possible to have a transfer before Christmas if you have a fresh transfer meaning you will be transferring the same cycle you stimed and had the retrieval.
Ivf is a stressful process but not a lot different than the iui’s,the stressful part is the waiting to see how ur embryos are doing.
Good luck to you!!

Thank you all for your answers!
Beth and Danaa, congratulations! I wish you a healthy 9 months :) Panda, too! From what I gather, you had your BFP cycle while on Estrace?? I was wondering if this could happen...
Nicksy, sorry about your chemical.. will you be starting a new cycle or waiting a bit?

I am still impatiently waiting for AF... I am freaking out about it since I took the last dose of my prescribed progesterone on the 28th (13 dpo)... Progesterone seems to make my lp about 18 days! My "normal" one is already 15, so I'm really testing my patience. Anyone had similar experiences when using progesterone? Is it normally prescribed after a transfer? I didn't get a prespription for it, only for Gonal F, Menopur and an antagonist... I can't recall the brand

Thank you all so much, it is such a relief to have people who understand and have gone through similar experiences.

Ty geeky!!
I only used progesterone once on a natural cycle and it didn’t had much of an effect on me but I know progesterone has this effect on certain women.
I guess it depends on ur clinic if they will prescribe any progesterone after the transfer.
If you have ur transfer later and is a medicated one you will need progesterone if not you might not,it depends on ur doctor.

Geeky, join the club. I have lp of 15 days myself, and progesterone causes it to linger even more. So yeah. It sucks. As far as progesterone in IVF is concerned, in medicated FETs, it will be given for sure. Fresh transfer, and natural FET, your clinic might or might not give it. AFM, doc wants us to wait. So we might go for another FET in early 2018 now. Good luck with starting your cycle.

Hey ladies!!! Sorry to be MIA all the time but I’ve taken some time off of work and I’ll be here often. I just had my transfer today.
I started off with a medicated FET cycle but my body didn’t respond to BCPs or Lupron. Instead it went right through surging as if no meds were taken, so my RE switched me to a natural cycle because I was just about to ovulate. So they gave me Ovidrel (trigger) on 10/27 and I started my PIO Sat 10/28. Now I’m in my tww- OFFICIALLY PUPO!!!! (Biting my nails)
Him- 31- PERFECT
Me- 30- Tubal (tubes removed 2012)
Angel babies 9-22-09, 10-12-16, 1-12-17

Starting Over- Feeling Excited!!
8/1/16: 10 frozen embies!!!
9/26/16: BFP!!!!!
9/30/16: BETA #1: 218
10/3/16: BETA #2: 322 then 404 then 534 then 1202
10/12/16: Dx with ectopic pregnancy (cornual) mtx given

STARTING FET AGAIN NOV 2016! 9 babies left!
*I DECLARE THAT ANYTHING I DECIDE TO DO IN MY LIFE WILL BE SUCCESSFUL!!!!*
12/19/16: BFP!!!
12/23/16: BETA- 186!!!
12/26/16: BETA- 531.7!!!!!!!! Almost tripled!
01/04/17: BETA- 11,790!!!!! :shock:
01/12/17: M/C!!!!! :shock: :shock: super sad!

FET #3- Third time's the charm!
4/20/17: BETA- 240!!!
4/24/17: BETA- 1,800!!!! Then 23,838!!! Then 45,445

Geeky - thank you! Yes, I conceived while on estrace priming. The nurses did warn me that this is possible and that it isn't a concern if it happens. They had me stop the estrace as soon as I had a positive beta. My new ob/gyn wasn't concerned when she heard. I think I was on estrace for maybe all of 10 days.

Johnnyswifey - welcome to your PUPO! Keeping all my fingers and toes crossed that this is it for you and praying for a BFP, fx

Hi Ladies!

Mind if I join you? These boards can get overwhelming and quick....still trying to figure out how to navigate.

I started my meds on Oct 26th and had my first sonogram Friday. My lining was 6.5 and he wants be to get to 7.+. I go back this Wednesday to get my transfer date. I'm 42, so I am praying for a bfp!

Baby dust to everyone here!!!

Hey Ladies, I'm a total newbie to tww... or any support forums for that matter... My husband and I have been ttc for what amounts to 10 years, after a diagnosis 2 years ago of severe male factor infertility we finally have our opportunity to go for Ivf, RE says we have to do icsi for any chance of success... anyway, everything is sooo new to me, and I feel completely lost, my doc is not too helpful either with info, so here I am hoping to learn, and meet some people going through the same things. Our meds for our first retrieval have been ordered and we are hoping to start with my next cycle (due around the 17th or 18th of this month) gonal f, menipur, cetritide, and gonadotropin lol but what that means... NO CLUE! Lol! Anyway any chance I can join you ladies?

Hello Ladies! I am just checking in on everyone.

sunshine- yay! I will have a buddy :) I actually ended up having (3) embryos frozen, 1-AA, 1-AB, 1-BB and we are only transferring 1embryo and keeping the other 2 frozen for the future :) I hope you get the amount you want! How did your sono go? I surprisingly had very little side effects from the stims. The only thing I had difficulty with was the egg retrieval. That stunk for me. Hopefully everything goes smoothly for you!

beth- CONGRATS!!!!!! :) :) How are you feeling?

danaa- congrats! that is great news :)

geeky- Welcome! I completely understand where you are coming from. Most of my friends have kids now too and they all got pregnant after 3 months of trying. I am super happy for them but it can definitely hurt. Every IVF cycle is different for everyone depending on your body, reactions to the meds, and stupid insurance red tape. I think there is a chance for a transfer before Christmas as long as everything goes smoothly. I will be praying for you that it does. Good Luck! Keep us posted :)

johnnyswife- oh my goodnes congrats!! Have you gotten a positive test yet?! Cant wait to hear! Fxing for you!

Kawa- Welcome! I will be fxing for you! I hope you get your BFP

Bella- Welcome! I love that there are a bunch of new ladies on here :) I was on the same stims and I had a great response so I will hope the same happens for you.

AFM, I am currently waiting for AF to arrive, which should be sometime next week around the 15th, then I start Estrace and Progesterone on CD 1 until FET day which will be around the 4th or 5th of December (CD 20)! I can't believe that I should know by Christmas whether I will be pregnant!! That will be the best Christmas present I could ever receive. I couldn't be happier for the pregnant ladies on here and I look forward to joining you :)

Bbe good to hear from you !!!Im so excited for your transfer day!!
Bellami welcome,GonalF is the easiest fertility drug out there,so easy on ur body and easy to inject yourself,GonalF and the Menopur will help you grow eggies nice and big and the cetrotide will stop your body to ovulate on your own,that will come a bit later in your cycle,the other drug is the hcg shot,the trigger shot that will help you mature and get the eggs ready for the retrieval.I don’t know exactly the medical/scientifical terms for all of these but I hope my explanation helped.
