The not knowing is killing me!!! I dropped off my consent for FET last week and am now waiting to hear from the scheduling nurse. Can anyone give me details on when I can expect a call and time lines moving forward. I am driving myself crazy.

Is this a funded or unfunded cycle?

 

For my unfunded FET, the nurse called within a few days (It was July) and I was able to get in for a FET in Sept. (currently in the 2WW).  They do have a partial shutdown in Dec.  Once you have your month, you call in your day 1 and begin.  You can also call the month before in case of a cancellation (that is what I did but they were still full).


Age 40, DH 44 in Oct.

TTC on and off since 2007 before our second IVF, in 2014, brought us our beautiful son and our first FET brought us our second son in 2017.  Our family is complete!

 

IVF #1 - April 2014 - BFN - no frosties

 

IVF #2 - July 2014 - BFP - 5B-AB and 4 frosties (5B-BB, 2x4B-BB and 3B-BB)

Apr. 13, 2015 - Daniel Erik was born at 5:05 am, weight 8 lbs, 13 oz, and 22" long.  He is perfect in every way.

 

FET #1 - September 2016 - BFP - 5B-BB and 3 frosties (2x4B-BB and 3B-BB)

June 18, 2017 - Matthew William was born at 2:46 am, weight 8 lbs, 11 oz and 21" long.  He is perfect in every way too!

Thanks the nurse actually called yesterday. I am scheduled for transfer in December!! I start BCP in a couple of weeks. I get so stressed when I have no plan. How are you doing in your two week wait? Hope you get your positive!

I am mostly doing well.  Had a bit of a fever for a few days and a few ransom symptoms that could be AF or pregnancy lol.  My Beta is Friday and I will test on Thurs just so I know what's coming.  I am trying to be hopeful but realistic.  Odds are around 30%, so need to keep that in perspective :)

Well you have a great attitude!! The second week is always really hard for me, I hope it flys by for you. I try not to pay too much attention to the stats because my experience has been that they don't mean much. My beautiful son came from an IVF I was told was basically hopeless.

That's amazing!  I was told my embryo was great and I had a really good chance but I hate to be too optimistic lol.  My son is from this same cycle though, so I like to believe the embryos are strong :)

Just to add our timeline for a reference point. We had our consult in September. Did all of our testing and had the follow up last week. The nurse called this week and we are booked to start our FET in November! We were really surprised as Dr. K had thought it would be January for sure.
