March 2018 FET anyone?

Postby sdhimmer » Tue Feb 06, 2018 9:37 pm

Hi! Dh and I are trying for our second child. We already have DD who is 20 months old. I just met with my doctor on Monday on CD3. I have 5 snowbabies so we are going to do a FET. I started on bc last night and will be taking one every morning and night. I'm also having a saline sonogram, endometrial biopsy, and Lupron shot on Friday. I'm not looking forward to any of the pain involved. I'm looking for cycle buddies to talk with, obsess with, and vent with to get me through this cycle. Tentative transfer day is march 14th.
DH & I are both 30 and we have been diagnosed with unexplained fertility.

Hi Ladies,

I will love to join... I am also 30! I have a DD 33 month whom we conceived through IVF as well. I started bc pills on February 1 and will continue taking them until feb 21. I start Lupron this Wednesday 15th and go in for my baseline US 3/1. I’m not sure of a date for my transfer just yet. How many embryo do everyone plan on transferring ?

Sdhimmer- Did you go through IVF with your first child?

Kkomal- Is this your first round of IVF?

We have to get through this journey together. Baby dust to all :hugs:

Hi ladies! such exciting things happening!

Gem goodluck on your transfer!

Wishing where are you in the protocol?

I am going to start taking estrace and a baby aspirin today. i don't go back for monitoring till the 28th. Do you guys know if they recommend thawing 2 embies just in case one doesn't make out through the thawing process?
BABY DUST TO US ALL!

Gem - hope all went well on your transfer today....I will check up on you on the other board as well.

sdhimmer- I am on cd 5 of lupron I called the office today to get a tentative date but my nurse was out the office. Another nurse gave me around the week of march 21 or 28th :roll: that seems so far away I'm hoping RE give me a closer date. I go in for my baseline on 3/1 then I will start estrace. Did you have your baseline done already? I cant recall if they thaw the exact number or not.

hi!
Gem hope you are doing well!

Wishing-the last time i went they took baselines and made sure my ovaries were "quiet"

when i go back on the 28th im going to ask about the embies and thawing and what she recommends. Time seems to move so slowly when you want some of these things to happen!

Sorry ladies had posted on the Jan/ Feb board and forgot to message here.. thanks for checking..
Transfer went well. They thawed all 9, and transferred 3 grade 1 blasts. They have frozen one more for later. So overall all went well!
They have started me on Lonopin injections since I had an earlier MC.. it’s subcutaneous, but stings like hell and bruises a lot :(.. taking it easy for the TWW, but getting a bit breathless and lots of food cravings :D.. Fingers crossed!
