Tentatively joining in. I was going to try a mock cycle first but am getting impatient as I was away and missed CD1 in January to start it. I think I'm going to move on to the medicated cycle as I've been on over two months of supplements for my thin lining (yes, I'm doing acupuncture etc. as well). My CD1 should be around Jan 28 and I'm doing estrogen patches and viagara this go round. 

 

Good luck to everyone!

Welcome Skroeze And Schlepp!

DH: 39 - MF, low motility, low count

Me: 40 - lining issues, hx of polyps and fibroids

 

TTC since 2008.

Started IVF journey in 2012, 3 fresh cycles and 3 FET attempts with first RE resulted in 3 BFNs and 3 cancelled transfers. No BFPs, no chemicals, never even seen a double line on HPT. cry.gif

Changed REs in 2015.  Repeated all tests and decided to bank embryos for PGS testing due to history of BFNs.  After 3 cycles and PGS testing - finally achieved 2 PGS normal embryos. banana.gifbanana.gif RE suggested ERA testing to determine implantation window. Mock cycle in May 2016 and July 2016, receptive results showing that 7 days of progesterone support required.

FET attempt #1 with new RE - Sept 2016: cancelled due to pharmacy med mixup th_agrr.gif

FET attempt #2 with new RE - Nov 2016: cancelled again - lining not trilaminar eusa_wall.gif

FET #3 with new RE - Feb 2017 eusa_pray.gif - suppression check and removed nuvaring on Jan 12th.  To start delestrogen injections Jan 16th. Final lining check on Feb 1st - got the green light to transfer finally!!yahoo.gif Feb 7th transferred one 5bb euploid embryo, beta scheduled for Feb 21st. eusa_pray.gif Symptoms: strong sense of smell, very tired, tugging/pulling/small cramps, sore breasts, and heartburn. Caved and POAS at 4.5dpt and saw 2 lines for the very first time in my life, POAS every day until second line was darker than control! th_acheerlead.gif. Asked clinic to move up beta.  First beta 9dp5dt=110; Second beta 11dp5dt=269; Third beta 13dp5dt=685. Ultrasound scheduled for March 3rd eusa_pray.gifeusa_pray.gifeusa_pray.gif

Welcome ladies!

How is everyone doing? I'm wondering if we should start a list of where everyone is at? I'll see if I can get some time tomorrow or tonight and do it 😬

For myself I started superfact nasal spray yesterday. So far all is going well. I did have a massive hot flash that I'm telling myself is from the midcation lol.
My mid cycle spotting stopped a couple days ago. Clinic told me it's common and can't be sure of why it happened. I am wondering if I have any ovarian cysts though. My right side yesterday and today has been painful.

Gfrench- how are you doing? This cycle seems so long compared to the fresh cycle hey! When do you anticipate AF?
Also do you know when we start the ASA? I wasn't sure if I was supposed to start with my superfact or not.

Hope everyone is gearing up for a great weekend.

Hey Wishful. I was told to start ASA with the Superfact.
I'm doing pretty good. On Day 4 of superfact. No side effects yet :-)
I expect AF on Jan 23. I'm still on bcp too so I'm pretty confident in that date. Cycle is seeming long, but I appreciate not needing to go get those numbers for u/s so early in the am!!

Yes thank goodness I got the green light! I removed Nuvaring which is the method of birth control I was on, and I'll be starting delestrogen injections on the 16th. Next check is a blood test on Jan 22.
What is your next step? What happens on the 20th? I've never taken synarel before what does that do?

@HFLO My next step is a lining check on January 20th to see how i'm progressing. Likely i will need another week or so before we can confirm a transfer date. Synarel, similar to birth control or lupon shots is another way of turning off the ovaries so you don't ovulate or produce progesterone on your own when cycling. Good thing is it's just a nasal spray :)

 

Anxiously awaiting the appointment.

Lnewfoundland: welcome and good luck on your first cycle. And it doesn't sound crazy that you're worried about them forgetting about you. I've been around the IVF block for awhile now and I've learned you have to stay on top of things and not be afraid to advocate for yourself or ask questions. Ive heard stories and personally experienced the clinic dropping the ball. If you're cycling next month you should have your calendar by now. Did they put you on birth control?
Vicchick: I started estrogen today too! But my estimated transfer date isn't until Feb 7th. I have a blood test on Jan 22 and then lining check on Feb 1st. I've been cancelled many times before so I won't breathe easy until after the appointment on Feb 1st.

Hi ladies
 
Anyone else gearing up for a February FET? I was initially on the Jan FET forum however our transfer won't be until February 13th or so.
 
I just got AF today and will start my Superfact on January 12th! We will be transferring one day 6 blast, we have two frozen. One is 4AA the other 4AB quality. Our Dr. stated being they had to go to day 6 to make the blast stage they are considered "medium" quality even though the grading is great. 
 
Anyone else have success with having to wait until blast made it to day 6 and then have a successful cycle?

Hi Wishful!
 
I think we are with the same clinic (RFP) and wondering how you found out your embryo grading because they've never told us!  We had a failed FET in December, so are gearing up for Feb or Mar depending on when AF arrives.
 
Our last FET in 2014 gave us a beautiful healthy baby girl, and was a day 6 or 7 slow mover blast to my understanding, but again I don't know what they graded the embryo for quality.  We've got 2 of the same stage of embryos left so I'm crossing everything that the next transfer takes!!!


Hi Capricorn85
I am from RFP! Sorry to hear about your failed cycle, it never is easy!
The only reason i know our embryo grading is because I asked at mymfollow up appt. I was really disappointed to learn that our blasts were considered medium quality bc it took them a bit longer to get to blast stage. So I was curious on grading which was great! I'm happy to hear you've had success from 6/7 day blasts!
Did you do a fresh cycle at all?

 

We did a fresh cycle many many years ago at the start of this all.... got a BFP but bleeding had started even by that point already so we pretty much knew it wouldn't stick.  Beta levels dropped within a few days.  

 

I can't decide if I want to know about embryo grading or how to go about finding out now!  Looks like we'll be trying again end of February but they want to do both that are left in the freezer and I'm so nervous!!!

Yup GFrench, I can relate, I've been on that bumpy ride this week. Don't be too hard on yourself, our DH's get it pretty easy during this whole process compared to us, so I'm sure they can handle the turbulence, it's more important that we let it out and not keep it bottled up!

Changed REs in 2015.  Repeated all tests and decided to bank embryos for PGS testing due to history of BFNs.  After 3 cycles and PGS testing - finally achieved 2 PGS normal embryos. banana.gifbanana.gif RE suggested ERA testing to determine implantation window. Mock cycle in May 2016 and July 2016, receptive results showing that 7 days of progesterone support required.

FET attempt #1 with new RE - Sept 2016: cancelled due to pharmacy med mixup th_agrr.gif

FET attempt #2 with new RE - Nov 2016: cancelled again - lining not trilaminar eusa_wall.gif

FET #3 with new RE - Feb 2017 eusa_pray.gif - suppression check and removed nuvaring on Jan 12th.  To start delestrogen injections Jan 16th. Final lining check on Feb 1st - got the green light to transfer finally!!yahoo.gif Feb 7th transferred one 5bb euploid embryo, beta scheduled for Feb 21st. eusa_pray.gif Symptoms: strong sense of smell, very tired, tugging/pulling/small cramps, sore breasts, and heartburn. Caved and POAS at 4.5dpt and saw 2 lines for the very first time in my life, POAS every day until second line was darker than control! th_acheerlead.gif. Asked clinic to move up beta.  First beta 9dp5dt=110; Second beta 11dp5dt=269; Third beta 13dp5dt=685. Ultrasound scheduled for March 3rd eusa_pray.gifeusa_pray.gifeusa_pray.gif

And, I'm out! Did a consult at another clinic and they recommended a hysterscopy. Not sure when/if I will transfer as I am still working through the thin lining issue. 

 

Best of luck to you all!

@HFLO Yes I am currently on estrace 3 x a day orally. Hope your injections are going well. 

 

@Vicchick33 we will be likely transfer buddies, I'll find out my exact transfer date on Jan 25th

 

@Schlepp So sorry you are out. I hope you are able to reassess with the new clinic and come back with a strong plan for your next go. Sending you love and positivity <3

 

AFM: 

I just had my first lining check and it went well! I am almost there, lining was at 7.5, no signs of ovulation and doc is sticking with current meds. So we are in a good place. Follow up will be on Wednesday, Jan 25. Hopefully will get confirmation of my transfer date so I can bring one of my precious little munchkins home <3. Also we got our needles for the PIO shots, OMG! Those are huge.. once we have our transfer set we will be doing those every 3 days in conjunction with endometrium. 

 

I've been super emotional lately like all of us... So many ugly cries.. it's the estrogen. Just so much anxiety but today, right now feeling good. It's friday and I have the day off. Will be relaxing later during acupuncture and then scheduled myself for a facial :). So so glad I do not need to up my meds! Also doing a little girls getaway this weekend where 2 know exactly what we are going through, 1 knows about our past but is going through some things right now so I don't want to stress her with thinking about my FET and one is totally in the dark about our infertility. Will be fun times :) 

 

Hope all of you ladies have a restful weekend!

Wishingforthatbump- exciting that we might transfer together!

What are PIO shots?

Yes, PIO shots are Progesterone in Oil. .. i will have to do them in prep for FET. Fingers crossed we get our transfer date on Wednesday for the following week!

 

Getting nervous/excited for getting the green light for transfer time.
