Hi! I am hoping to transfer in February! We were offered a cycle in Dec and was told I would have started meds on Dec 29 so we would have been on the exact same schedule! I couldn't accept it due to travel plans and they said I "should" be offered another this month, which would make our transfer date in mid-late Feb. This will be my first FET after double blessings after our IVF cycle 6 years ago. We have one 5 day embie and 3 three-day embryos left. We have decided to grow those 3 to day 5 and then choose the best to transfer.
I look forward to getting this cycle started!

After twins,we will definitely only be transferring one. I am really hoping to experience a singleton pregnancy and enjoy having one baby at a time. I love, love having twins but those early days were just so hard.

Hey Ladies!!  I'm living on the east coast but my clinic is RFP.  I am started Superfect on Dec 30 and am set to transfer on Feb 2/3 if my lining check is good.  I had a few issues with my lining during the last FET, but they are changing me to patches so I really hope its not an issue again :)  

 

I have two 6 day blasts and we are transferring both!  I had success with my fresh SET in 2012, but we aren't having much luck with FET's. I had six 6 day blasts, but we used them up, they resulted in a m/c at six weeks and then a crazy heterotopic pregnancy where one was in the tube and the other in the uterus.  Luckily the tubal pregnancy naturally failed but the other turned out to be a blighted ovum.  

 

Really hope 2015 results in all of us ladies being pregnant for 9 months :)  Great that there are other ladies who are going through all the same steps as me.

Hi Loo!
I see you are from NL? I'm originally from NS but my fathers family is all from Stephenville so we spent our summers there. Welcome to the group!
Can I ask why you have 6 day blasts? I have been at RFP for 6 years now and I have only known them to do 3 or 5 days. (After we had our girls, my SIL was also at the clinic so in one way or another, it seems we have been going through the clinic non stop!) Im just curious if this is something new that we should expect? So far the plan is to grow our 3 day embryos to 5 days, and see how they are.

I am waiting for AF and then I will call in to the hot line and hopefully start suprefact later this month. I wish I was closer in my cycling to you ladies, but I will cheer you both on :)

Thanks, Jenny!  We are super close in dates.  Be so nice if we can move from this group to a due date group :) 

 

Baby3:  I cycled in 2012, my blasts were growing really well and most were high grade... they didn't really give me a choice of 3,5 vs 6 day blasts.  I transferred a 5 day blast for my fresh cycle, they received a phone call the next day saying I had 6x 6 days blasts.  I wish I had more information to share... I just went with it :P  All the of the ladies who cycled at RFP with me during my fresh cycle, had their embryo's frozen on day 6 as well.  Hope AF shows up soon so you can get started :)

AF arrived today so I called in to the hot line. Since I was offered a cycle last month, that I had to turn down, they said it wouldn't be a problem to get in this month but I am still waiting on pins and needles for the call! Last time they called 1 week after I called in to the hotline so I suspect it may be the same again. Hopefully I will be sniffing in 2-3 weeks :)

Hi Ladies! I'm hoping I can join you- I am doing my first IVF cycle this month and have my baseline tomorrow. We were dx with Male factor but as we completed our testing we learned that I also have DOR so we are doing a Flare protocol at RFP. I am pretty nervous about being stimulated so aggressively and hope that all goes well- as in me not biting off DH head thid month 😝!
Started TTC Sept 2013
Dx Male factor July 2014
Dx DOR November 2014
Starting 1st IVF at RFP January 2015 Flare Protocol
4 eggs retrieved transferred 3 day 3 embryos Jan 31/15 last embryo did not make it to freeze
BFN extremely unhappy with quality of care at RFP
Transferred to VFC - best decision ever!
Embryo banking started April 2015 completely different protocol antagonist with clomid+ letrozole
@ baseline u/s Dr.H sees what he suspects is adenomyosis ( could our dx get any worse- devastated)
Round 1- 5 eggs retrieved 4 fertilized 3 embabies on ice ( grades 19,18,18)
Round 2 June 2015 4 eggs retrieved 3 fertilized 2 more embabies on ice ( grades 19,17)
Round 3 August 2015 2 eggs retrieved both immature nothing fertilized- shock and total heartbreak I had the most follies
Praying the 5 embies on ice will be enough to give us at least one THB
October 2015 start preparation for FET #1 downregulation to treat adenomyosis BCP + suprafact
Added in estrogen @ first lining check it's only 6mm... what never had lining issues before
Added Estrace vaginally next check it's 9mm yay! Starting PIO
Nov 13 2015 transferred 2 embabies grades 19&18 we are so thrilled!
9dp3dt: BFP on HPT OMG!!!!
11dp3dt: nervous as lines not darkening... trying to stay positive
Beta results #1 40- not great advised to stay positive but realistic
Beta #2 11- early loss chemical pregnancy our hearts are broken but clinging to hope that we can get pregnant
January 2016 FET advised no need to downregulate again as adenomyosis should still be quiet
Adding in intralipids
Lining check 7.5 mm let's do this!
Jan 15 2016- transferred remaining 3 embies 19,18,17
BFN- this is our lowest point.. at follow up Dr.H recommends moving to donor eggs, nope this is actually the lowest point I just turned 35 2 months prior how can this be...
After much soul searching we decide that we need to try one more time before closing the door on a baby- donor is not something for us at the moment, it's our stuff or nothing for now
Fresh cycle planned for summer 2016 we need a break and we are gonna do a full 4 month course of DHEA + Coq10 for me and I've ordered a 3 month course of Fertisan-M for DH
June/July IVF Fresh cycle estrogen priming+ letrozole no clomid as I'm certain it had a brutal effect on my lining ( thx so much to all the DOR ladies on FF & ivf.ca I've learned so much from your journey's)
5 eggs retrieved 3 Fertilized 2 day 3 embabies on ice- I'm a bit depresssed I really hoped this cycle could be a miracle cycle and I didn't manage my expectations well... need some time to process as I'm not feeling hopeful about this last shot
September 2016 start preparing for FET # 3 this time I've asked to be on a very low dose Estrogen BCP loestrin-fe and Dr.H is adding in injectable estrogen valerate to help my lining
Downreguation for 6+ weeks of BCP and suprafact for adenomyosis
Starting to shift my attitude to one of hope and belief in my body and the embabies we made I CHOOSE TO BELIEVE
October 7 starting Estrogen injections every 3 days
Oct 20 let lining check 8.7mm YES!! Intralipids treatment
Oct 27 transfer of 2 beautiful day 3 embabies grades 18&17 -I believe in you babies
Beta Nov 8..BFN all right folks we're calling it we are done

Welcome Lexyanna! I have a friend who did the flare protocol at RFP. She still was not able to get many embryos (3-4 each cycle) but she did get pregnant BOTH times and has two babes as a result. I wish you the best of luck! Most of us here have been through a fresh cycle at least once, so if you have any questions, ask away :)

Squirt...your story sounds very similar to mine! I also have two kids at home(though they were from a twin pregnancy on IVF #1) and my hubby isn't quite as on board with things as me. He is fine to go ahead or fine to stay as a family four. I haven't wanted to push the issue at all but I have always felt like there is just one more child waiting for us, so we are giving our embryos a chance. Best of luck to you!

Our year: I really want to try sandles white house. We've been to the negril and Montego Bay locations. Loved them both!!!!! We are going to secrets wild orchid... Going to compare the two 😉. With the suprefact I had headaches for the first couple of days then night sweats after being on it for a while.

Baby3: they just turned two in October. With each failed FET I'm more and more greatful for them!!! If I got another set out of this last transfer I sure wouldn't complain😮

How old are your twins.

Bug... My girls are 5 and will turn 6 in February. I am really hoping to experience a singleton pregnancy this time around. I'm sure twins would be easier the second time but with the added stress of pregnancy (I was on bed rest for 14 weeks and had many scares) along with all the pressures of two babes at once, I am praying for one healthy bean :) Having twins is an absolute dream now and really with the age gap, twins again would sort of be ideal but I guess I want to experience the other side.

Baby3: I totally get that! I'd love to experience a singleton pregnancy and newborn. To be able to dedicate so much time to one baby.... This whole IF thing blows.

Hello! I started Suprefact January 5th and am scheduled for baseline ultrasound on the 22nd. This is our first cycle so not really sure what to expect. Does anyone have tips on where to stay while we're in Calgary?

Baby3:  I totally understand that - it is so hard. I always wanted a bigger family...when I got pregnant and it was etopic in June with our last embryo I just knew then and there I was not done.  I am so excited for you to get this opportunity to try with these embryos!  Stick little guys stick!

 

OUR year - how is superfact going? Is it still a nasal spray?

 

Bug88 and Chanliwo you are on a similar timeline :)  So exciting I hope this is the most positive thread! Sorry Chanliwo I have no idea where people tend to stay.

 

AFM: I am beyond excited, hubby agreed to go through another fresh cycle!!!!!I have a very different protocol this time.  No superfact and way less drugs.  Dr. Scott says that because I am older and heavier and they have seen how I respond over the last few cycles they are going to change my approach.  I am not going to suppress till right before my natural ovulation (and it will be with an inj)...

 

So I do nothing till I start FSH inj on Day 3 of my next cycle and do that for 10 days and then do egg retrieval. :) So Egg retrieval will be around Feb 15th and if we do a 5 day transfer it will be Feb 20th.  Of course all of this depends on my next period :)

 

Can't wait for us all to get started - I am so thankful for this bored today as I needed somewhere to put all my excitement as we are not telling anyone this time around!!!!!  This is very hard for me I love to share!
