October/ November FET cycle buddies

Hi there,

Just want to have some new cycle buddies for oct/nov 2012..i will b having FET done this month hopefully the 31st. After 3 IVF & 1 FET in 2 yr all had been failed. This lost my baby boy this Feb 2012  @ 15 weeks due to me having subchorionic hematomas. It was hard broken for me and dh but this time im so ready for this new experience. Im afraid due to having so many misscarriages and not knowing the cause but finally my re did testing and i have a FACTOR II MUTATION  that may be the cause of my miscariages 2 yrs ago.

This cycle my meds are...estrace 2mg 3x..baby aspirin..prenatals..pio 2x..lovenox 1x

Im praying for this cycle to be my miracle cycle and praying in God to have a heatlhy baby or babies...

Hope can have some cycle buddies to share our experiences together..

Im not doing an fet this time, im doing IVF if you would like i would join you here. Im sorry to hear of your losses. I had 2 mc this year. One in May and another in August. My 4th Fresh cycle was cancelled due to poor response so I'm waiting to start another IVF at the end of October. I take prednisone, lovenox,follistim, menopur and now Bravelle.

Wishing you the best this cycle!!

I know it was really hard and im still dealing with the depression from this last loss. There isnt an hour that goes by that i dont think about it. I cant actually speak the words without bursting into tears. I hope that we both have the appropriate changes needed to be successful this time. So you had frosties left to do an FET? That's great, it's so much easier on your body.  Do you know how many you are going to transfer?

welcome widsome :)!! praying for u and this awesome 2ww..lol..are u poas or u waiting for beta?? how many did u transfer? any prego symptoms?? Good luck my dear!!

Ginger... i been on mental counsling and sometimes i can do the sessions but sometimes i cant..every single month i light a candle next to his ashes at home ..its hard but i know our lil angels will help their lil embies sis or brothers to make us happier... so far i have 15 embies frozen from 3 ivf cycles..i know i have a lot but the last embies were the best in quality... ohh yeah this cycle is awesome..the only thing ive noticed is that ive been moody sometimes and very tired but its all due to the estrace..i will transfer 2 i did wanted to ransfer 3 but my re said like my last loss was due to me having subchorionic hematomas he afraid i might get another one and i can lose them all.. so he dont want to risk nothing.. do u know when exactly u going to start ur ivf??

as for me.. today i had my lining check and im almost 9! yayy!! im so happy but scared at the same time..i have a single factor II in my blood that might b the causes of all my loses and know i will start using levonox after my transfer date.. i dont have issues getting prego is that i cant keep the pregnancy ..im just praying in God that this miracle will happen!!

I'm glad everything is looking good. I can relate to the scared feeling. It's hard not to think about what the outcome of the cycle will be. I'm hopeful that lovenox will be the missing piece to your puzzle. I was on it before. I had  huge bruises for weeks. Do they know when approximately your transfer will be? I'm expecting to start at the end of Oct. I'm hoping to transfer 4 again this time. We are most likely doing PGD too.

Welcome Widsmom
Congrats on being pupo!!

Hi Ladies
I think i wont poas untill at least 12 after the et, My beta's are on the 27th of Oct.
Because i have cervical stenosis i had to take a medication that would open the cervix and thus the dr would be able to insert the embies, the problem is that the drug caused me some bleeding, my dr thought it was mainly cervical and wouldnt affect the transfer, but I'm a bit worried.
My other problem is the endometrium thickness, it barely and after an extened course of medication reach between 8.5-9 on the day of transfer.
I had 4 embies transfered, but one of them with a lower quality than the others, they are the all that survived the thawing no more frosties left, meaning if I don't get pregnant I'll have to do a fresh IVF

one week has passed of the 2ww so one more to go
wishing you all the best  
1441678 tn?1414176672
Hi ladies...

Ouch bruises!! ;) i hate needles but i will do anything possible to keep my lil one or ones safety and praying God my body won't reject them!!

So far my transfer is schedule for 31st( my lil brother bday) ...im so freaking out w the PIO i was watching some videos on YouTube and i freaked out!! Lol!!

I wanted to transfer 3 but RE said too risky for me so will c...they change plans on the last minute..

Widsome... im praying for u and hopefully that lil bleeding u had was just implantation and your lil one is cuddle inside your uterus!!  You brave cuz im addicted to poas..lol...my last time i did it at 4dpt but that was a fresh cycle
.i dont know what to expect in this cycle.. i know so much that im afraid!!  Good luck on a high numbers the 27th!!

Praying for us 3 to bring a healthy baby or babies for summer 2013!!

PIO shots are not that bad. I've done them for all my ivf's. If you need any help just let me know. I was running out of room getting to almost 10 weeks of them and estrogen injections. Lovenox fortunately is a tummy shot.
It will be well worth it to have that baby in your arms.
603245 tn?1240836517
Thanks jessy and wishing you the best,
I'm starting to loose patience and really want to do a hpt and poas, I'm now 8 dpo do you think I'll get accurate results if I do it now ?
What do you suggest I do? Poas or wait?
Avatar universal
I have gotten BFP's at 8dp5dt and 7dp3dt with FRERs.  Everyone is different though. Best of luck to you! It is really hard to wait till beta sometimes.  
603245 tn?1240836517
I poas and did the hpt, I'm now 9dp4dt. I got a BFN :(
I'll try to poas again but maybe after 2 more days.
If this doesn't work out for me that means I'll have to do a fresh IVF. Does anyone know how soon can I do it?
Good luck girls, as for me I'm still hoping....
Avatar universal
Dont give up hope yet!! I'm hoping this cycle goes your way but if you have to do a new IVF your RE may let you do it right away since your ovaries were not stimulated. I know my RE makes me wait out a cycle. I hope you get a BFP and don't have to worry about this.

Hello everyone,

I would like to join you ladies if I could.  I am currently in the start of my cycle for a FET.  I went through an IVF process in 2009 and had a son in Dec of 2009.  I previously had a daughter "naturally" (not to mention the numerous IUI's, and failed IVF attemps in between)

I am currently taking 4mg of estrace 2x, baby aspirin 1x and prenatal vit.   My US for my lining is Nov 1st and if all goes well then a transfer of 2 embies on Nov 5th.

I can totally relate to you every single post...the needles, the head games, the emotional roller coaster that we go through, the disappointments the tears....everything.  But things can and will work out I have living proof, my little guy is almost three and I still look at him and say he was worth every needle poke I went through :)

1441678 tn?1414176672

Hi all,
Jessy I know what you mean by being hungry all the time I really believe its the estrace that is doing it for me, all those extra hormones running through my body is driving me crazy.

widsmom how is going today.  Hang in there those extra couple of days and then try again.  I know the ttw is brutally long and I'm like the rest of you just can't wait to find out.  

Ginger how is your cycle going when are they going to do your retrieval?

Sending lots of SSBD to you all.

Hi Leatha sounds like you will be having your transfer very soon. Wishing you nothing but success!! FET's are SO much easier then fresh cycles. I do think its an advantage not stressing your body out with all the stims and stuff that you need to do for a fresh cycle. All the meds make me very sick and I have a very hard time keeping food down. I don't have problems with weight gain because of this.

Jessy I was going to suggest ice for you if you don't like shots. Hopefully this helps you. Yes I did Lovenox and baby Aspirin to prevent blood clots. I was on the baby aspirin before ER and the day after ER I started the Lovenox and continued it up until we lost our baby. I hemmoraged after my ER and my BP dropped but after a while I was able to go home. I'm hoping that doesn't happen this time. AF should be here soon and then I can get this show on the road. It will be nice to finally start and get this behind me.
794496 tn?1351040555
I know what you mean Ginger about the stressing the body with a fresh cycle. It is amazing what we put our bodies through isn't it!  I am so grateful that I still have some frozen embies left.  I am wondering how they will thaw and hoping that they will be okay.  Here's hoping that AF shows up soon for you.

How is everyone feeling....Jessy any thing else to report.....widsmom how's it going with you?  
Avatar universal
I know they say there is a possibility of them not surviving the thaw process but I've never known anyone to have this issue. My first cycle I had three make it to freeze and they all survived the thaw process. What did you have frozen? Mine were 5 day embryos. My clinic requires them to have all the characteristics in order to freeze them. I've recently learned of 3 day embryos being frozen. I want to try and remember to ask my RE why he doesn't do that. My embryos usually look really good at 3 day and die off by 5 day. I had a 3 day transfer last and made it very close to10 weeks with an abnormal chromosome baby. Now we have a whole different set of worries to deal with so I'm not sure when my transfer will be.

Hi ladies ,
Im also on sep oct blogs but trans should be 7th Nov if all goes ok with scan next week, I was so lucky on my first go of IVF i got 16 embies to freeze,
twins on first go ,
bfn on 2nd and 3rd and this will now be my 4th FET, but only 3 embies left,
So i pray they thaw ok, and that good old mother nature kicks in to help me out,
So nice to hear such positive posts, just what we need,
Good luck to those waiting on Betas already, HATE HPT they are not 100% but so addictive, my husband pleaded with me last night not to get any in, i drive him mad, is it a line, isnt it??? squinting , holding it upto the light, turning it all ways to find a line lol,, blimmy i drive myself mad ha. But i cant help it, I just long to see it,,,
Will try my best not to test early this time , im just gonna believe im pregs til Beta.......  I like to live in a dream world for those 2 weeks atleast.

Feeling very run down this time round though, not liking all the drugs, with work etc i feel shattered and sick and hungry,,,,, Wishing the next month to fly past,,,,,,
603245 tn?1240836517
Hi ladies
Thank you all for asking I'm ok but feeling a bit down as I repeated a hpt today and its still a BFN, I'm 11dp4dt so i guess if I were preg it would have shown by now. My beta's are on sat so we'll see for sure then,

Ginger regarding the thawing i had 8 3day  embies and only 5 survived the thawing, returned 4 ( the ones with the better quality)

Jessy, I too have gained wight, feeling sleepy and tierd all the time too these are some of the side affects of the meds we'r taking just hang in there it will pass and hopefully your new baby will make you forget all this ever happened

Welcome leatha and tes645
Looking foreward to hearing good news
794496 tn?1351040555
Good evening ladies,

I had seven eggs for the last round but I used donor eggs as all my attempts with IVF's previously didn't result in any of my own eggs being viable.   I transferred two of the DE at the time and had a baby boy who is almost three now.  So now I have five frozen embies left and depending on how they thaw I will transfer 2 on Nov 5th if all goes well with my scan next week.  So here's hoping my lining is thickening up to make a nice cushy home for those embies.

tes645 we are very close in transfer dates.....I can't believe it is coming up so soon in one way and oh so far away in another!  Are you planning on transferring all three if they all thaw okay?  Whoa wouldn't that be busy with another set of twins!  And I so know what you mean about not feeling well with the meds.....the estrace is just killing me!  I have puffed out, gained weight, and am seriously moody...NOT FUN!  Here's hoping the time flies for all of us.

widsmom don't give up yet, those sticks are not always right.  Just keep it going until your beta on Sat.  I'll be thinking of you.

Ginger and Jesse I hope your day went well today, I know some days are harder than others.
