Hi J-Lee.

The only time I took off was for egg retrieval day. Otherwise, I went about my regular business. I recall the day of transfer, we even went to a Jets game that night! Lol. I'm set for a frozen embryo transfer this Sunday and don't plan to slow down much afterwards... Plus it's difficult when you're chasing after a toddler (he's from our fresh cycle!)

Good luck! How are your follies doing hs4816??

Sorry I missed this until now. I had 9 follicles but retrieval today and only 4 eggs. So waiting to hear what fertilizes. .... fingers crossed

I'm 41 with endo

IVF #1: March 2016: Long protocol: Suprefact (200)/Menopur (225)

9 follicles => 4 eggs => 3 mature => 3 fertilized (ICSI) => 2 blasts (one transferred, one frozen)

BFN

IVF #2: June 2016: Microdose flare: Suprefact (40 BID)/Menopur (150)/ Gonal (300)

7-10 follicles (?) => 12 mature eggs => only 4 fertilized w/ICSI => transferred 2 @ 3days and 1 blast frozen

BFP: day 14 beta = 93, day 18 beta 557 (37h doubling time)

.... it stuck and we welcomed our boy March 2017!

back on this crazy journey again: June 6, 2018: FET #1...

Hi there,

Haven't read/posted here in a long time but I've got (sadly) lots of experience with IVF at Heartland, did 4 cycles plus one unmedicated FET, with 2 kids to show for it.

 

I'd be happy to share experiences and answer questions if you have, I know how helpful it is to have people with similar experiences.


me: 35 him: 35
IVF#1 March 2011 BFN
IVF#2 Sept 2011 BFN
IVF#3 April 2012 BFN 2 frozen embryos
FET #1 August 2012 BFP!! Eliana Joy born May 22, perfect and precious!

IVF#4: starting March 2014, best one yet! 9 eggs retrieved, 5 fertilized, 3 frozen and 1 beautiful baby boy! Ryan Alexander born January 9, 2015

Dr. Johnson did say it would be her. She did my last retrieval too.

I'm suffering through a bowel prep right now (ovary is stuck to my colon). Fun times.

J-lee I'm sorry about your bfp. Take care of yourself.... Was this your first Ivf?

H - how did you like Dr J for retreival? I was a little nervous to have her for transfer as her u/s is never the most comfortable but she was great! I was lucky for 3 out of my 4 fresh ivf's I've had dr mctavish. Love that man! That does not sound fun about your bowel 😐 good luck tomorrow. Update when you can.

I like all of them. Haven't had any issues. Mind you, with enough midazolam I don't think I'd know I'd I had a concern or not :-)

Hey ladies,
We transferred on the 31st. BFN. Will be transferring our last embryo I guess late August, or early September. We are doing a endo scratch first and putting me on prednisone this time. Anyone else do the prednisone? Thoughts???
We did have success with our fresh transfer but two BFNs with our frozens.

HS4816 - how was your ER?

Bobbi13 - sorry about your Bfn 😐 I'm currently waiting for beta on Friday. This is my second cycle using prednisone as well as heparin.... The last time I used it and had an endo scratch as well..... I feel like it's been a long go since I had my daughter I've had 5 failed transfers.... Not sure what we will do if this one doesn't work, which I kinda think it didn't.

It was ok. Seemed worse than the first one at the time but now that I think back they seem the same. I find the transfer very uncomfortable too. But now I'm just waiting, which seems worse than any physical discomfort :/

Just thread crashing to welcome SaskLady. :-). Hope you find this site to be as informative and welcoming as I have. Wishing you all the best with your upcoming cycle!
It was long, awful & hard. We got very lucky and didn't run out of both emotional and financial resources. We saw some of the most beautiful of people in our lowest moments. Baby Girl arrived Apr 10/2018
