OneMoreChance- I'm with you.  On 3 estrace orally in the morning, then 3 vaginally in the evening.  Going for my first lining check on Friday of this week.  Feeling like this is a vacation.  Don't get me wrong- I'm not complaining!

 

Julia- I'm so sorry about your loss.  Let's hope this cycle is more positive for us both!

 

AFM- just hangin around trying to forget I'm doing a cycle.  I went for 3 acupuncture treatments and then he wants me back on the Monday after my lining check.  Hoping it shows something...!  Last time it took me a bit to get going, but they started me on a higher dose this time.  FX

Looking at everything everyone has going on in their cycles really makes me feel like mine is lacking somewhere. I only have ONE u/s before transfer. I haven't had, nor will I be having any type of testing for all of these different things that several of you are having. I don't even know what a lot of this stuff is. It's really starting make me feel a bit unsure.
Hello to everyone new and I apologize for my little snippet of a rant, but I just wish my calendar seemed just as involved. It's very uneventful.

I'm the same!  Call on cd1, start estrace (orally, and then vaginally I think), go in for ultrasound I think on cd10 to check lining, once lining is good, take progestrone for 6 days, on day 6, go in for transfer.  2 weeks later, beta.  That's it!

 

Here's hoping!!

 I'm with you too oneMorechance!  I have 1 ultrasound next week for lining check, then transfer, then beta!  Don't feel unsure, it seems to be a pretty common protocol.  Enjoy the simplicity and fx =)

Hi ladies,

So I've decided to go ahead with the transfer and transfer 2 not 1. This might be a bit unorthodox but this is what I'm thinking. We've got three blasts, the plan was always to transfer 2, then 1, so go through 2 cycles.

The blasts are 4AA, 4BA and a 3CC. Originally we would have transferred the 2 best. Now we're going to go ahead and transfer the 4AA and the 3CC. Together, even with a potentially compromised cycle our chance for success are still greater with 2 (I'm 39). And this way we'll still have 1 great blast left if we do need to cycle again. If we only had 2 blasts, I definitely would have just transferred one.

My RE has said in more conversation that the age of the eggs that produced the blasts and the overall quality will have a much greater impact on success and likelihood of miscarriage than my TSH levels. But there is still a chance that the TSH will have an impact. In the meantime my dose of Synthroid has been upped from 50mcg to 75mcg, but I think I'll ask her tomorrow if we can up it to 1mg. Even though my RE recommends 1, we're okay with this calculated risk because we'll still have a backup.

It's tomorrow at noon. I'm excited!

ttc - congrats on having a date. Knowing when it's going to happen sure helps make it all seem more real

reese and one more - ya more ladies close to transfer!

Hope everyone continues to make good progress with their cycles. And of course, baby dust to all of us.

Prenatal with folic acid, Fish oil supplements (more for me than for baby!) and plan to do acupuncture on transfer day.

 

Other than that, nothing else up my sleeve!  I have read on hear that eating pineapple core around transfer day helps with implantation...can any elaborate?  The irritating thing about this is I really hate pineapple!  I'll choke it back if I need to lol, but I won`t like it!  :D

 

Congrats to those who are close to transfer and those who are PUPO!!  so exciting!

 

AFM, still waiting for cd1...should be end of next week, but I have a feeling its going to be late.  bah!

I am taking prenatal vitamins folic acid and fish oil as well. Well, it's actually in the same package. One pill is the multivitamin, the other prenatal DHA/EPA. I am taking a baby aspirin as well, though I don't quite get the reason for that one.
McBee I keep seeing stuff about the core as well. I've been debating myself whether I'm going to try this or not. I'm a bartender, and a couple weeks ago we had to core pineapple to put these drinks in. So of course I had to try a bit of the core. I wasn't pleased. At all. I as well would like to know what this is for, so that I can decide if that's something I want to do. McBee your cd1 will be here before you know it.
Eoe have a great day, and try to collect as much baby dust as you can. My coworker is pregnant and she 'sprinkles' me regularly ;) TTYL

I'm currently "patiently" waiting for my turn to get my transfer!

Me: 36, TTC since July 2011

Husband: 37, High DNA Fragmentation (over 50%)-Now down to 14.9% fragmented (june 2013) Back up to 62% Feb 2014.

DX: Immune issues. and High DNA Fragmentation

Nov 2012: Totally natural IVF cycle, 2 eggs retrieved, one fertilized, day2 transfer of a "perfect" 4 cell embryo, BFN

 

Jan 23 2013: starting modified natural cycle (150 puregon day 4, 6, 8) day 4 US: 5 follicles on L side, 7 follicles on R side
Feb 4 2013: ER: 9 eggs retrieved. Cyst drained during ER as well.
Feb 5th: 1 egg mature+ICSI, fertilized. 3 immature eggs maturing in lab, 5 immature.
Feb 6th: 1 embryo dividing well, 3 eggs matured and ICSI done, waiting to see if fertilized. 5 discarded. tentative transfer day feb 8th.
Feb 8th: ET, 1xday 4 (cells have started to compact.) 3 leftovers have fertilized.
Feb 11th: call from embryologist: 3 leftovers arrested. nothing to freeze.
Feb 14th: 6dp4dt, HPT-BFN major bummer.
Feb 20th, Beta BFN

 

April 2013:Fresh Cycle. Antagonist protocol. 150puregon/day+Orgalutran+Ovidrel.

April 8th: 12 eggs collected, 8 mature, 7 fertilized. 7 blasts, 6 hatching, 1 hatched.

May24th: BETA day: BFN. Told to wait out a cycle before pursuing another FET.

 

June 2013: Hubs did a second DNA fragmentation test with another urologist for a second opinion.  Test came back at 15% abnormal, so... now within the norm... huh??? So happy but wondering how it went from 59% fragmented down to 15% fragmented.  Morphology still low.

 

July 15 2013: Hysteroscopy, Endo Biopsy done.  They've removed a polyp as well.  Still waiting for full results... darn summer vacations, making test results delayed... so anxious.

 

August 28th 2013: Green light to start Estrace today for FET

Sept 4: on duty Dr. (not Dr. Tan) gave me a big NO on a double transfer due to me having blasts and my age URGH!

Sept 11th: Transfer day.  surprise! Dr tells me they're transferring 2 hatching blasts.  lower quality though...

Sept 23: Beta: negative.

WTF appointment Sept 26.

 

5 3 frozen hatching blasts left.

Immune Testing: positive for high CD56 (and other stuff moderate)

 

December 21 2013: Cycle starts! Immune protocol: Prednisone, Lovenox, Estrace, PIO, Doxy, Medrol, Calcium

Perfect lining (triple stipe, first time the technician is so happy with it!)

Transfer on Jan 7th, Empty Bladder transfer. (so much easier!)

Sorry for being MIA for the last few days.  So much has happened here that I am not even going to try to do personals.  I'll try to be more diligent  :)

 

Welcome to the new girls!

 

AFM:  I called me day 1 on Saturday (Sep 7) and had my Day 3 u/s and b/w on Monday (Sep 9). Everything looked good and I was cleared to start estrace, so I am leaking blue :D

My biopsy is scheduled for tomorrow (Sep  12), and ugh... not looking forward to it, but strongly believe it is very necessary.

My lining check is scheduled for 18th and if everything looks good, I am thinking that the transfer is going to be on Monday Sep. 23rd.

 

I was looking back at my last FET cycle, and surprise surprise my day 1 was also on the 7th, and day 3 on the 9th, my biopsy was a bit later in the cycle on the 14th (this time it is on the 12th), and lining check was on the 17th.  I am thinking they moved it by one day this time so as not to do a transfer on Sunday. Fine with me, as this way I don't have to make arrangements for someone to take care of DS.  

 

Last time when we TTC and going through IVFs and FET, there was a small circle of relatives that knew. Basically my parents and my sis & BIL, DH's mom and his bro & SIL.  I told a couple of my best friends only after we got a positive. But this time around I want to keep it just to the 2 of us (we did tell DS too, but he is too little to understand and he doesn't talk yet :) ).  It was a bit emotionally exhausting that to share everything with so many people.  At the time of our BETA for FET, I had to fight off calls from everyone. I don't know...  I might tell my mom (but don't tell DH that) as she is the least vocal person around.  The good thing is that I work for myself now, so no thinking of excuses every time I am late for work due to monitoring or have to take a day or a half off.  

 

Anyways,  I noticed that the chart hasn't been updated in a long time (at least a page or two ago), so I am reposting it with my updates.  I know it needs a lot of updates with everything that has been going on, so if anyone feels like it, please update.
