Congrats Rachel!!! I really hope theres a few more BFPs from the ladies in this group either this month or during their next step! As for me went to my first u/s at 7w1d today and saw a strong heartbeat. I cried like a baby! Haha it still really hasent sunk in yet, after 4 years of ttc I feel like im dreaming. Im also scared to attach incase something goes wrong. All normal im sure. Well good luck to the rest of you!!

Hi all, 

Great to hear about the BFP and hugs to those that continue on this fertility journey.

 

AFM- Beta was yesterday and it's a BFN for us. We have 6 embryos frozen and this was our FET from our 1st IVF in May. First thing I did after seeing my beta results was grab some brie cheese and go to the beach with my partner. I have a severe form of PCOS, but the nurse said that PCOS does not impact the implantation of embryos. I'm hoping next time will be our time. xo

Sorry to hear that JJVancouver. Enjoy that brie! Wine goes great with brie too!
You are really lucky to have 6 frozen embryos bc you get 6 chances. Some of us only get one shot...like me. I'm sure you have a golden egg or 2 in there!

Hi ladies...yes it would be nice to stay in touch! :) Sorry I got caught up in the June FET. So I had my ER last week and they had retrieved 36 eggs. Boy was I sore...I am still getting sore if I drive for too long or sit for a long period of time...my ovies don't like it! :) 

 

But in conclusion I have 8 frozen blastocysts...they have gone for testing and should hear back in a week or so. I know 8 sounds awesome, but last time I had 4 and only 1 was normal. I am hoping for better results this time since I took ubiquinol and dhea for 3 months. Praying praying praying! :)

 

So I met with my doctor to see how the FET will work - she wants me to go on birth control for 2 weeks and get a hysteroscopy done during that time. Afterwards I will prepare for my ERA...this time around she doesn't want me on crinone or estrodial. She feels that I do pretty well on my own with this (she looked at my previous IUI's and I had good linings each time)  part, so she wants to keep it natural. I would only be taking femara for 5 days with a trigger shot. Kind of excited that it will be natural but nervous at the same time...I am hoping my body will respond well on its own!

 

Will keep you guys posted! How is everyone else doing?
