Hi ladies.

I'm currently on superfact waitng for AF to show so I can call in cd 1 and begin estrace in prepartion for my transfer. Should be sometime in Feb:). I'm on superfact 5x's a day since cd 21. Today is cd 26. The clinic has instructed to call if I don't get my period after being on superfact for 14 days. What happens if I don't get AF? Do they just wait it out or bw or u/s? I'm pretty sure I ovulated really late this cycle.

Thanks and good luck to all!!

Krista: I'm sorry to see you here again too😊. This time! I find I get more and more emotional with each cycle 😳. Hormone casserole! When will you get the results of your embryos?

Beachlover: I can only imagine how expensive that must be! I was complaining about all the trips I have made to my clinic (8hours round trip, hotels and meals) .... But clearly nothing compared to you!

TDH: my cycles are irregular and i ovulate anywhere between CD 17-25. Almost every time I've taken superfact I haven't ovulated yet. The suprefact will actually caused me to ovulate and I usually get my period 15 days after starting suprefact.

Thanks Bug88!!

Does your clinic let u go until your period shows up or do they want to intervene? It's my first FET so I feel like I'm flying in the dark. (Which I hate btw) lol

Gah.  CD36 of my usual 31-35 day cycles.  Not super late, but READY for a new cycle.  Kind of wish I could go to sleep and wake up when it's time for ET.

 

I am not obsessing about details or anything, but there are days when I just want to see/be on the forums - very distracting.

Bug:  Welcome to the group!!  It has been a long year, hope so much that this cycle leaves you with a new bundle of joy.  

 

Meary:  Don't leave!  Hang around :)

 

Beachlover:  Ahhh, such a tough decision! I struggled if I should send my eggies to my local clinic, but I decided the risk was too big. Fingers crossed you get another baby this cycle and then the pressure will be a little less.  How long do you need to be in Cancun?  Will you have your lining US locally? 

 

Soon:  Frig, come on AF!  Hope you wake up, and she is here :)  

 

TDH:  My period was delayed by a few days, my clinic told me when I start estrace is based on when I started superfect and not when my period arrived.  My timeline didn't change :)

 

AFM, started estrogen patches yesterday... never have used them before.  Ekkkkk, I'm nervous my lining is going to be suboptimal again.

My timeline and medications were supposed to come by purolator yesterday. I tracked the package and it said it was on the truck for delivery. I stopped by the drop off spot and nothing . It got forgotten on the truck. I phoned the company to have it redirected back. Fingers crossed it comes today....

Loo-I used the patches for the first time last FET and my lining was good.  I've had issues with my lining taking extra days to thicken up when I took estrace so the patches worked better for me.  Hope they work well for you too.

Hi super mom 😊

Loo: I did get it today! No broken suprefact bottles ... So that's a plus!!! Hope you feel better soon! That gastro bug sounds nasty!! It shouldn't affect your lining too much .

welcome to the group, supermom! 

 

loo - I hope you're feeling better soon! When is your lining check? 

 

bug - so glad you got your medication. Like we need anything else to stress about!! 

 

AFM: Up to estrace 3x daily, still dealing with headaches, but they've gotten better. Just heard from my clinic that my embryos were biopsied and shipped yesterday, so fingers crossed I hear something next week! Today I'm heading to the ski hill to sneak in a few days of snowboarding before transfer, etc. 

 

Happy Friday everyone!

Hey supermom!  Glad to be cycling with you after adoption - it weird for me.  But good.  But strange.

And I'm kind of in cycling limbo - my AF still hasn't come!

 

But any day (for the past 10 days) it should be here and we can get this show on the road.

Joinging in here if you all don't mind. I'll be doing my transfer February 28th. This is our 2nd FET. We had a bfn on our first FET and bfn on our fresh cycle.

Does anyone know where id find statistics on transferring one vs two? Does transferring two increase my odds that much? Our has only ever allowed us one because I'm high risk but this time she is willing to go two if we choose to do so. I'm just unsure what the vest way to go is.

Krista: exciting news!! Have a wonderful time snowboarding!

sOOn: come AF. Waiting for her when you actually want her to start is the worst!

KayVan: welcome! I'm not sure what the stats are. I wrestled with the decision to transfer two for a long time ( with my last FET (BFN)). I will be transferring two again this time. I weighed the pros and the cons. and felt with my track record the chance of two sticking was slim.... And if they did i would be doubly blessed 😜. Good luck in your decision.

Bug:  Happy, happy to hear you got your intact package.  Won't be long before your PUPO and on vacation in Jamaica.

 

KayVan: Welcome to the group :)  I don't know about the stats either, I remember discussing it during my fresh cycle and told transferring 2 would only marginally increase my chances of having twins.  I'd check in with your clinic to get a better idea.  Wish I could have been more help. 

 

Soon:  How are you holding up?  Still in limbo?

 

Krista:  I love that your living it up during the cycle :)  Hope the side effects are improving!  I'm supposed to have my lining check on Jan 26, but work-wise it would be to tricky so I'm doing it on the 27th.  Sooo nervous.

 

AFM, gastro has finally left my body!  Went for my first acupuncture appointment yesterday and I don't know if was all in mind, but I felt there was increased bloodflow to my pelvis.  Haha, or wishful thinking?  Either way, it was relaxing.  She recommended I do it 5-6x before transfer, and one session before and after.  Its too bad I'm transferring out of province, but I am going to see if there is someone in Calgary I can use.  Interestingly, the acupuncturist told me 8-9/10 ppl with fertility issues, including MF (our dx) will become naturally pregnant after having acupuncture.  I've tried to find the research supporting this, but nil.  Wish it were true :P
