I have seen where a lot of women who do a FET and get a BFP end up having a miscarriage at 5-6 weeks. (including myself in the summer of 09). I am 3dp6dt today and am so hoping for a BFP and a healthy baby(ies) in the summer! but I am so afraid of a repeat of last summer. Is the miscarriage rate for FET higher than with a fresh cycle or spontaneous conception?

thanks in advance!

No, the miscarriage rate should be the same. A clotting screen and careful luteal support may help.

Good luck!
