Hello everyone, and welcome Michelle
Just had the ET. It was different from what I'd expected - so I have more questions. Sorry - you'll all be sick of this soon, if not already!
I had read that ETs are usually done with an ultrasound. Mine wasn't, and I didn't think to ask. Are yours all done with ultrasounds? I read that they were more effective if done that way, so I'm a bit worried now.
I also read that you usually lie down for 20mins after. I was told to sit up and get changed straight away, and there was no lying down. Again I'm worried that might not give the little blastocyst the best chance.
My FS told me NOT to preg test, even though I said I would. He just kept saying not to, and my BT is 22/6. Arghh! But everyone tests early... right?
The procedure was a bit sore, but not terrible.
And the embryo results are good!
So, I had 12 eggs. All mature. 10 fertilised. Had 1 put in. 3 frozen today, and they reckon there may be another 1 or 2 that might be okay for freezing tomorrow! That's a good result, isn't it? I was excited that there are definitely at least 3 to freeze, just in case.
Amy - how did you get on with ET today?
First, we would all kill for your embie production!! Well done. Only something like 20 percent of cycles get frosties! U go girl.
Re transfer lots of places don't use ultrasound. Both the clinics I've been with do. But others don't.
And re lying down, my two clinics don't do that either. I think the research says there is no difference in out outcome between lying down and not.
Take it easy today. Don't do anything to raise your temp.
Re testing, they all tell us not to. But most of us do. Do what helps u to get through. But remember the girls on here who got negs and were preggars. And remember pregnyl interferes. And really its only the blood test no that matters! Good luck with the tww. So happy for u!!
Thank you, both of you! That reassures me a lot.
And wow - I had no idea about the percentages for what happens embryo wise.
My FS is great, but for the EPU and ET I've felt a bit lost, as it's been a bit of a production line going in and out - not much chance to ask questions.
I just had a call from the lab saying 18 fertilized!!! She said that was good! I don't know if we hear from them again until Tues now...which is when ET is. Is that normal or should they be calling again? So they were taken out fri and are going in Tues....that's day 4 right??? Don't most people get day 3 or 5?
Sorry for all the questions, being a newbie sometimes I feel pretty clueless
Frannies so sorry, so sucky,
GirlX, one step closer. Very exciting. Yay for frosties!
Nicsta83, WOW. Very exciting fertilisation there, hope it goes well on Tuesday.
Hi to everyone else, hope all is going well.
I give up, I am so confused. The bleeding seems to have stopped already. Maybe it was nothing? Maybe it wasn't? I have no way of knowing until my next test. I'm booked for Wednesday and can't speak to anyone till Tuesday anyway so I think I just have to resign to what will be will be till then.
