Hi everyone,
I'm a new kid here! I'm on CD3 for my 2nd FET cycle and I've just started my Estrace 3x/day today. I have a lining check on Feb 5th and an estimated transfer date of Feb 9-10. My first fresh cycle and my first FET both resulted in chemical pregnancies (which I'm scared mean there are quality issues with my eggs/embryos). One thing I have seen online is a lot of women taking low dose Aspirin as part of their FET protocol. I asked my RE about taking Aspirin today and she said "it won't hurt, but the evidence isn't clear whether it helps or not". I think I'd like to try it this time so I'm wondering for those of you taking Aspirin, when did you start it/when do you stop/does it matter what time you take it? Does anyone understand the theory/purpose of taking it? Thanks for your help and good luck to everyone!

Welcome Humanpuppy! Never tried or looked into the Aspirin theory but if you find out more please share.

 

AFM: Had my 2nd lining check and 0 growth since Friday! So we are uping my Estrace to 5 a day. They want me to try this for a week so I won't be transferring next week, but delayed is better than cancelled so will take it. Next lining check is Feb 1st. Headaches are back with the bumped up estrace already so will be fun time waiting until next Wednesday! Feels like forever away.

 

Any updates from anyone else? 

 

Update:

Wishful09 - Estimated transfer Feb 13th 

HFLO - Blood work Jan 22; Estimated Transfer Feb 7
Wishingforthatbump - Jan 20 & 25: lining 7.5MM; Feb 1 Next Ultrasound
GFrench - Estimated transfer Feb 16
Vicchick33 - Ultrasound Jan 26; Estimated transfer Feb 2
TryinginDC - estimated transfer Feb 2
Humanpuppy - Ultrasound Feb 5th; Estimated transfer: Feb 9

Schlepp - Cancelled

Hi humanpuppy! I'm at RFP and was prescribed low dose ASA for my fresh cycle and for my FET. For my fresh cycle I started with BCP so a month before my stims. This time I started with Suprefact. It's supposed to help with blood flow for implantation.

Hi everyone
Just checking in! Not much of an update from me other than cycle day 1 not arriving yet. I was so normal every 30 days before starting IVF again and now my cycle last month was 36... I'm at 36 today and no sign of AF. I did call the clinic and asked them if there was a certain date I should call them by if I hadn't gotten it yet. They said to call by tomorrow if I don't have it and I'll be sent for bloodwork. So annoyed with my cycle.
Gfrench - good luck with the retrace starting! Hopefully you're able to push transfer off a couple of days!

Hi to everyone else! I'll post more later. Just posting from my phone here.

Wishful- I'm annoyed for you. AF always shows up when it's inconvenient and then when we actually want it..... nothing. Almost glad I was irregular before so the clinic had me in bcp. Hope if shows up later today or tomorrow so you can get started on next steps.

Huma puppy: welcome and good luck! I'm on low dose aspirin. I've been on it since I started BCP in November and I'll be continuing after transfer. I've never had a bfp before so I'm not sure how long I will be staying on it after transfer. It's supposed to assist with implantation and increase blood flow to the uterus.
Wishingforthatbump: sorry to hear you're having lining issues. Hopefully it's nice and thick on Feb 1st. That's the same day I'm going for my lining check too.
Wishful: AF plays such games when you need her to come!! So annoying. I hope she comes quick for you so you can get things started.
AFM: estradiol result was good on Sunday, so I continued with delestrogen injections. I'll be going for lining check on feb 1st, praying for triple stripe so I can start PIO and confirm transfer date.

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

Exciting to see things happening here!

Update RE: PIO shots. I gave myself my first PIO injection this morning. I was nervous, but I used an ice pack on the site for a few minutes and didn't even feel anything when I did my shot! It is so much better than the messy suppositories!!

Fly by post ladies! Cycle 1 phew!!! Pushed me back by 5 days or so.
Quick question. I go for baseline the 13th and when I asked when transfer would be if baseline was good, she said likely the 21 or 22nd, that's 8-9 days after baseline, doesn't this seem long? My sample timeline sheet states 3-6 days after baseline. I'm assuming based on whether your doing a day 3 or 5. So even at 6 days post the 13th I should be having it around the 19th...

Sorry just trying to figure out if the nurse may have been wrong.

Yay to those that have gotten AF and getting started. Looks like things on this thread are picking up! I was following the Jan FET thread and it appears they've had a lot of positive news!! Hope that continues for this thread girls!

Wishingforthatbump: I'll be praying for us both!!
Skroeze: so glad she finally showed up and you can get started, good luck!
Vicchick: congrats on getting that first PIO shot out of the way. It's such a mind f*** to poke yourself with that needle!! I find the injection itself doesn't hurt so much, it's more the after effects and trying to find an unpoked spot that's not sensitive after a few days. I've learned a lot of tips along the way, so let me know if you have questions.
Wishful: hmmm...good question, I guess it depends on what they call baseline. I start with a suppression check, which some people also refer to as baseline. Then 10 days later I go for bloodwork after being on estrogen for a week. Then another 10 days later I go for a lining check and if all goes well they schedule transfer a week after that. So for my clinic the whole process is 27 days after stopping BCP. Maybe your clinic refers to the final lining check as baseline? Or maybe the estradiol bloodwork prior to that. Hope you can get some more information out of them, I know sometimes it's like pulling teeth!
AFM: nothing new. Just waiting for lining check on Wednesday. The days aren't moving fast enough!

@Skroeze - Woohoo for AF finally showing!

 

@Vicchick - you are one brave lady! Giving yourself a PIO shot! Please keep us all posted with any tips that help make them easier :). So when is the transfer set for? 

 

@HFLO - sending perfect lining vibes;). I've started making smoothies with beets to help thicken my lining. Just threw some water, blueberries, an apple, spinach and a beet into my blender. Turned out pretty good. 

 

I have been feeling exponentially more emotional since adding 2 more pills of estrace a day so have been trying to stay in calm settings and just focus on me. I just had a pedicure and am going to have a nice relaxing weekend at home and am pretty excited for it :)

 

Update:

Wishful09 - Estimated transfer Feb 13th

Hello everyone, 

 

I am new to this forum and looking for tons of hope and positivity here!

 

I am waiting to start my cycle (hopefully in a day or two). Please see my signature for details on past IUI/IVF experience.

 

I have been a case of truly unexplained infertility. The only issue really so far has been lot of cramping possibly caused by my curved cervix. Waiting to talk to my RE during the first sonogram for any steps to alleviate that. My last FET was in Oct 2016. I took a break and started taking acupuncture sessions and also went on a gluten-free and dairy-free diet. Also did a cleanse as well as fertility herbs, Hope all that effort bears some fruit! 


Me 31 DH 36

TTC 2 years

HSG - normal

9 failed IUIs (5 with Clomid)

Laparoscopy after 6th IUI - normal

 

IVF cycle #1

ER - 16 retrieved, 14 mature, 10 fertilized, 9 made it to blastocycst stage, ICSI/PGS, 4 normal

FET #1 - transferred one, used progesterone suppositories, BFN

FET #2 - transferred one, PIO shots, BFN

FET #3 - transferred two,  PIO shots, BFN

 

IVF cycle #2

Hysteroscopy - normal

Wishingforthatbump- thanks. I don't think I was brave though. Just had to do what I had to do!

I do hold an ice pack on the injection area for a few minutes which I think helps to numb it a bit. Then I used this video and poked myself with her on her count of three!

Made me feel like I wasn't doing it alone!

Hello! 

 

Hoping to join this thread. I am currently on Estrace and have my first lining check scheduled for Feb 15. (had a depo Lupron shot to down regulate about 1 week before Day 1) This will be my first FET after my first IVF cycle that happened last July. 

 

A brief recap of that. My IVF resulted in 14 mature eggs that were retrieved and 13 fertilized. By day 5 we had only 3 good quality embryos remaining. We did 1 fresh transfer which sadly resulted in a miscarriage very early on (6 weeks). 

 

Following the miscarriage I had some retesting done and they found a polyp in my uterus. I had to have it removed before proceeding with the FET - that was in late November. 

 

So keeping my fingers crossed that this will work this time around!

Hi Everyone, I hope you don mind if I jump in this group. I'm doing my first fet with RFP in Calgary. Im currently on suprefact and waiting for my period to set the dates for my lining check etc. Tentative transfer will be the end of February. I feel like the suprefact may be messing with my head, I had hot flashes on the weekend and then a huge emotional mess yesterday which is unlike me. Anyone else experience side effects from suprefact ?

Hi Robyn_Sparkles. Welcome. I am also at RFP. Suprefact has made me so weepy! So yes also experiencing those side effects. I wasnt on suprefact for my fresh cycle so I really felt like its come out of nowhere. Its gotten a bit better since Ive started the estrace, but still some tears.

Welcome SPJD!

Vicchick33 Good for you for doing the PIO shots. Gotta love YouTube. How are you feeling? Everything looking good for your transfer this week?

HFLO Good luck with your lining check tomorrow!

HopefulPiscean Welcome! Have you gotten news on starting your cycle?

Wishingforthatbump Good for you for taking time for yourself. I hope you enjoyed your relaxing weekend with the pretty toes. Good luck with your u/s tomorrow.

Skroeze so glad AF made her appearance and you have been able to get started.

Wishful I have the same tentative timeframe between lining check and transfer. It does seem long, but I will just be sure to question it at my lining check.

Hello to anyone I missed. Positive thoughts to all!!!

AFM Not much to report. Still on Suprefact, but started Estrace build up last week. Am now on 2mg twice a day and bump that to 3mg twice a day starting Thursday. My lining check is Monday morning and I scheduled an appointment with the psychologist just to check in emotionally. Im still worried about the timing of my transfer. Right now they have said tentatively the 14th or 15th. Like Wishful I think that seems like a long time after the ultrasound. They are also terrible days for me. I will make it work if I need to obviously, but the 12th or after the 16th would be so much better. (Hubby is away from the 13-16th). Just trying to stay zen, active and eating healthy for these next couple of weeks.

Updated List:

Wishful09 Lining Check: Feb 13; Estimated Transfer: Feb 21

Gfrench - thanks for asking. I feel great! I've been doing accupuncture weekly and seeing my osteopath twice a week. FET. Is scheduled for Thursday! I'm feeling excited!

Hang in there and trust your clinic knows what they are doing!

I've gone for all my transfers myself actually and I've really enjoyed the time to myself to get lost in my thoughts and drive home listening to music I love! My DH would just be bored with all the waiting and would stress me out. My naturopath said to me the other day, it's not often you get pregnant without your husband being there!

TRying DC - are you still on track for Thursday?
