Hey Bellami. I'm not too worried about PGS. All I need is one. I'd rather know which one is best than have disappointment after trying to transfer embryos that would lead to miscarriage. Now if that one doesn't work... that's another story. I'll cross that bridge if I come to it.

The test I believe is a biopsy of the uterine lining. Two month recovery. Not sure when that will happen but I think April. My surgery is March 22. Also two month recovery.

Good Morning Ladies!!
I hope everyone is doing well!! Mglupe, I will be fxing all day Wednesday for you!! Keep us updated! I haven't gotten as far along in the process as you yet so I'm not sure on meds for fet or waiting times but I do agree it seems a little strange to not wait for your cycle.... hrrmmm.... Banana, I'm glad your surgery is soon, at least you won't have to wait too long for that. How will they be doing It? Laparoscopy? They removed my fibroid doing a hysteroscopy, they did put me under anaesthesia, my husband said it took 3 hours before they let him take me home... Lol I have no memory of it, other than getting to the surgery center! Make sure you rest and take it really easy after surgery! Keep us posted! I start stims on the 23rd, and am keeping super busy with some early spring cleaning, and lol projects... I painted my bedroom yesterday, and we are putting in New flooring in the bedrooms next weekend.... also I have become on obsessed with organizing everything, not sure if you guys have heard of the container store but it literally has everything u could need to organize anything, closet organizers, cabinet organizers, drawers organizers... Lol my husband is gonna kill me but I can't stop organizing lmao!!! It's keeping me sane:-) Geeky, any updates? Hope all is well!

They didnt tell me where my labs and linning were exactly. When I was getting the ultrasound done I was told everything look wonderful and then when the nurse called to give me updates and instruction she said blood work came back excellent and linning was perfect as a book :D so I felt good with that response. I start pio on thursday night. How many are you transferring?

Well ladies not good new on my end. Not sure but have a gut feeling i will be cancel once again. Ultrasound found fluid in my uterus. Boomer im trying to google more about this and all i have come up wirh is that estrogen can cause this. What the heck. Also everything i read is bfn result from it. I jump on the last flight to come see my doc. Will be walking in first thing in the morning.
Have this happen to any of u? Or do u have any feed bavk on this. Im devastated. I think i have gone through every scenario possible on my 3 years of iui and ivf. I feel im back to square zero.

Wishing that is wonderful news!!Fx for you!!
Mglupe....I’m so sorry,you can’t catch a break,the fluid is not good and if you transfer with that ur chances of getting pregnant are not good,you can aspirate it,use progesterone and see if that makes it go away,or have one or two orgasms and pray the contractions of the uterus will flush it out.
If it were up to me I would cancel and not take any chances.Good luck!

Ok ladies update from me. Linning at over 9mm great. Did see some fluid. Doc said i can fix this ;) guess what he did. Stick his fingers in and put his hand over my belly and massage my uterus and vuala!! It was gone. I just couldn't believe it. I started to cry in disbelief his said he does not want to cancel knowing how nice my lining has preform and this fluid is because of the high does of estrogen im in. Transfer day is now on Monday: ) im so nervous. Starting progesteron today 400mg twice a day and will continue with the estrace 12mg total.
