I just did FET #2 on Tuesday and my Dr. has me on the CCRM antihistamine protocol as well as Ovidrel shots -- 2x/week. If I am pregnant, the current plan is to continue the HCG shots throughout the first trimester, though I know there's not a lot of safety/efficacy data out there on using these shots into pregnancy.

Anyone have any personal experiences doing this?
Me: 34 DH: 35
M/C @ 6 weeks -- January 2007
DS born December, 2007 -- natural conception -- my miracle baby!!
M/C @ 5 weeks, June 2009
M/C @ 5 weeks, September 2009
RPL testing -- all normal
M/C @ 6 weeks, February 2010
More RPL testing: DH has 36% DNA fragmentation, I have high NK cell activity
TTC hiatus for 3 months while DH goes on antioxidant therapy
DH retests: DNA Fragmentation reduced to 10%!! Excellent fertility potential!!
October 2010: NK cells now normal
November 2010: BFP! Saw HB at 7 and 8 weeks; NT scan at 12 weeks reveals baby died at 11 weeks. D&C Feb 23rd.
July 2011: Genetic results back: 46 XX -- Normal girl but high chance of maternal contamination. Omphalocele noted on u/s.
Natural BFP August 26 right before we were going to start IUI. HCG 16 dpo: 77 HCG 19 dpo: 454! Blighted ovum 13/09/2011.
Moving forward with IVF with PGS with Natera. Egg retrieval set for March 1.
19 mature eggs retrieved, 15 fertilized, 11 made it to blast!
PGS testing: 4 normal, 2 inconclusive, 5 with major issues.
FET in May 2012 -- transferred one expanding 4BB blast. Chemical pregnancy
Endometrial biopsy -- normal
FET #2 July 31 with CCRM antihistamine protocol and HCG shots. Transferred one 4BB blast. Second embryo didn't make the thaw. One embie left....please let this work!
