Hi Rebecca! I'll be doing a FET in March as well, but closer to the end of the month. I should start suppression next week once AF arrives. I've never been so excited for my period. Lol! This will be my first FET.

Hi ladies.
I will hopefully be doing a fresh cycle in March.
I'm on antagonist protocol.
Just hoping they have chosen the right protocol for me.
Good luck to all of you.

Hello,  what is Hashimoto Thyroiditis diet?

 

I was following the book 

The Hashimoto's 4-Week Plan: A Holistic Guide to Treating Hypothyroidism

So this includes going gluten and dairy free, cutting out soy, sugar and caffeine.  They also talked about cutting out corn and nightshades, but I couldn't stick with it.  I stopped the diet for the month of December and broke out in a rash and put on almost 15 pounds....now I am back to Gluten and soy free and cutting out sugar and caffeine - I am having dairy because I didn't feel like it affected me.   It's worth a try -it was tough to start but once I got into it, I felt AMAZING.  Right now I am focused on getting my circulation going by walking and weekly acupuncture and being good on my diet.  I just want me body to be as good as it possibly can be going into FET :-)

I think I might be doing a FET in March. Maybe we should update the title of the thread to FET if everyone is doing a FET? Might be easier for anyone joining in.

Had a hysterscopy this week and my RE recommended we go for it next cycle. I'm away for 11 days in the middle of my cycle but since I've had lining issues he said we should just start the meds and I will stay on them for much longer. Not excited about that as the estrogen makes me feel terrible.

Good luck everyone!

I am doing an HSG on Feb 13 - felt nervous about doing it right before FET- but feel better knowing that you did!

 My hysterscopy involved a bit of scarring being removed and hopefully this helps with my lining for my cycle. I've been on a ton of supplements and been doing acupuncture and my lining was a bit thicker than usual last month during cycle monitoring. AF has also been much heavier. Never thought I'd be happy about that.

 

We only have one embryo so the RE is being very cautious. Annoying to do all of these tests but I don't want my lining to be a factor in where we have success. 

 

I'm sure if they recommended an HSG before then it is a normal protocol before a FET. And great for them to make sure your uterus and tubes are all good. 

 

Good luck with your HSG!

I just listened to a podcast on infertility and a woman cut out gluten and sugar a month before for her second IVF. She had amazing results compared to the first and she also said all of the symptoms from stimming were significantly reduced. 

 

I used to be massively into Paleo and have been thinking about going gluten free for this month, prior to my March FET

 

Congrats for making such a big change!

Welcome to the new members! AF is 2 days late over here which is making the waiting to start drag on forever. Our clinic is 4 hours as way, so like Rebecca I am also hoping for a nice mild March. We picked up our meds when we went for our consult, and I have to say I am a little intimidated by the 21 intramuscular injection needles currently sitting in my closet. I think I only had 1 when I did my fresh cycle. Anyone have experience with these? I hear the progesterone is the worst.

Hi everyone,
I will be doing my FET in the beginning of March. A week ago I had a sonohysterogram and everything was good. My RE has decided not to put me on BC since I have regular periods anyways. I will begin taking estrace when I get my next period. I'm super excited to get this underway. I will be putting my last two embryos in...

Hi guys, 

 

It's amazing that we are all on such different protocols.  Real3d I only have 4 days of the intramuscular needle (thank goodness).

 

To those who are on there last frozen embryo - must be a very anxious feeling!! Wishing everyone success! So happy that so many have joined!

I'm on my one and only embryo from IVF #1. I'm hopeful for it but know the odds so I've been taking IVF prep supplements since December in case we have to cycle again after the FET. I'm 39 so I'm feeling a lot of pressure to cycle again soon if needed.

Is everyone else on supplements? I did the math and I'm spending almost $250 a month. I've had to cut back on acupuncture until my actual FET cycle starts. I'm dealing with a lot of issues with them; low vit D, low B12, thin lining, estrogen dominance and old eggs.

I'm estimating AF to arrive around Feb 21 and will do day 3 monitoring and start patches after. But due to travel and thin lining, I will be on estrogen patches until a lining check on March 15 when I get back from my trip. A fun 3 weeks minimum of patches!

I'm always fascinated by the different protocols. Ive never been prescribed Lupron and only did suprefact during my IVF to suppress ovulation.

What are IVF prep supplements?  I am on Pregvit folic 5.  I am on BC and aspirin, and will be on superfact end of February!
