Congratulations Tess!! So so happy for you :) let us know your beta numbers.. !
Rosey, it sucks to have to juggle all this around when u r already stressed out a bit. The cyst sounds like a good idea so you can tell her next month that removing the cyst helped you conceive lol..
I am from Mumbai, India - I called my Dr and they said I need to come in on 8th for the lining check ( cd14), but they can schedule the transfer a few days later - when we return from the trip.. so That is some good news!
Geeky, you are correct, my FET should be around 11th ( if I travel, we might delay it to 14-15 Feb).. wish you all the best!

Geeky, nice to meet you. Good luck with your transfer. On ohss, I am a little curious. When did your doc figured that you got ohss. I am scheduled for retrieval on Thursday with 16 follies seen on my last ultrasound. So far nothing has been said to me about ohss... I keep.wondering if there's still a risk to get it?

Gem, Mumbai sounds lovely..it's must be relieving that your clinic is flexible with transfer date. Good luck to you

Hi everyone, im also from the novembre/decembre. Hoping thos will be my month.
Tess congratulation thats definately BFP!!!
Hopeful it very hard and it more stress added when you cant tell everyone the process u are going through. Your idea of a minor cyst removal procedure is a perfect escuse.
Geeky hi, i hope Feb is our month. Planing on my second medicated FET transfer currently on estrace and delestrogen ultrasound for lining check on feb 5, not sure when will my transfer be done.

Tess, I am now starting to worry about the quality of my embies and potential blasts.. ( I had 9 grade 2, 8- cell embies frozen on day 3). Can I ask what was the grading of your embies/ blasts.. trying to figure out chances of implantation :) Ladies, any other inputs are welcome!
Welcome Mglupe and Geeky. Waiting for more good news on this thread. :)..

Hi Ladies, I’m a newbie to this website.so here is an intro about myself. I’m going through my FET #1 and my transfer has been scheduled for 13th Feb.IVF fresh cycle this month didn’t workout. I had my son 7 years ago through IVF. So I thought this time also fresh cycle will workout. I was heartbroken when the test came back negative. As of now, I’m on aspirin and estrace. Will start The progesterone oil shots from 8th Feb. That’s it about me.
Congrats Tess!!! . So happy for you... Hope the numbers will be good too..
Good Luck Ladies!!! Let’s hope Feb is our month.

Gem, I don’t know if we grade embryos the same way. I think mine was a 4AA, but after thawing it started hatching so maybe it became a 5AA. I’ve heard lots of different stories about different kinds of embryos implanting and maybe the embryos will like it better in utero. :)

It’s still early days for me and the tests don’t seem to be getting that much darker but I’m just trying to stay positive and focus on what I have in the present. One verse that has comforted me is: “who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his span of life.” That just made me realize I have to cherish life no matter how long it lasts for me or for my embryo but that every day is a gift.

Rosey, I went into the office on the 16th of December and my retrieval was on the 20th. I was put on leave from work from Dec 18th to 25th (and then, I had a week off for the Holidays). I had 24 follicles that were all more than 15mm so I was just HUGE. After the retrival, I had to take medication (I cant recall which now) and to drink sugar-free gatorade. I was only considered a " mild" case. Had it had been more serious, I would have been hospitalized. I think they also gave me the leave as a preventive measure. In any case, I am glad they did since I feel much better now this time around!
Thank you for the warm welcomes! mglupe, we've been here for quite a while, IUIs and all. I hope this is our month, lets have hope!

Geeky, thanks for sharing your experience.

Thanks, Gem.

So I am back home.14 eggs retreived from 16 follies. Thats all we know for now. I need to call the clinic tomorrow to get more info.
Not sure why I m feeling disappointed. Initially I thought 10 eggs would be awesome, 14 is clearly more than that. I guess seeing 16 follies made me a little greedy. I need to keep reminding myself that its the quality that matters,no quantity. I anyway was given rather lower doses of stims. I did 4 days of 150 gonal each and 2 days of 75 gonal. Then 1000u pregnyl to trigger.

Let's see how many of these fertilise and make it to day 5. If all goes well, my fresh transfer is tentatively scheduled for 6 Feb.

How's everyone doing? Any weekend plans?

Gem,thanks for the kind words. My RE would agree with your clinic. Hr was quitr happy with the outcome.

That’s awesome Rosey! 14 is a great number! The hardest part is over (physically). Now just get rest and know the rest is in God’s hands! :)
