Hi ladies. Throwing my hat in the ring for a Nov FET. Starting end of the week probably. Expected transfer mid Nov. fingers crossed for everyone!
@Evelynmoo I had fluid around the ovaries visible on the ultrasound 5 days after EPU. The fresh transfer was cancelled - ohss - as the risks of making the fluid/ ohss worse if I did fall pregnant were too high.
Corbes - I usually have an US at day 12 to check the thickness. Then they can adjust the meds to thicken more or we are go for transfer. All mine were frozen at 3 days so transfer at day 15.
We have always been able to choose which one to transfer if we want to. The FS will go through what's in the freezer and say which one she recommends and then we just go with that or say if we want something else. I would think if you're paying for it and they are yours, if you want a particular one transferred then that's your obligation.
Congrats on being PUPO @itsgunnahappen I hope you have a stress free 2ww
@mrsthomo I hope you are wrong and af holds out. All the best for when you test
Welcome @woof5105 my af is due around the end of this week as well (most likely next weekend). I'll be doing a FET around the same time as you. Have you done a FET before? This is my first one as I did a fresh transfer two years ago and now trying for #2. We will be doing a 5 day transfer.
Hi @Corbes I haven't done a FET before but I was asking the ladies from my last cycle group about this recently. It seems that you go in around day 9 or 10 and then every second day from there til ovulation. I've also heard of some clinics check the day after they expected ovulation to make sure you actually did. They all also said that they didn't get to pick with embryo to transfer and that the clinic just choses the best quality one from those remaining. Apparently most clinics number them from best to worst and use them in order. I believe 3 out of 4 of our embryos are the same quality and are the same as the embryo they transferred that became my now 16 month old daughter. I'm guessing they just randomly assigned numbers 1-3 to those ones and number 4 to the medium blast.
I've done 4 FETs before ... 2 bfns, 1mmc @ 9wks and 1 chem. I don't get AF so am just picking dates according to when it suits me for implantation. Am a bit concerned as the 2 "better" results (mmc and chem) have been achieved after going back to back with a bfn. I have always thought that the bfn cycle has at least put me into 'normal' cycling - then the next month my body is behaving as it should. This looks like it'll be my last transfer prior to donor eggs.
We'll be transferring 2 this time. One 5 cell and an 8 cell if the 5 survives the thaw. Or two 8 cells if it doesn't survive. If we do the two 8 cells, then that's all of my chances gone. It's all a bit stressful now!! I have someone that I would like to ask to be a donor but not sure what her response would be. Hopefully it will be yes!! And hopefully we won't even need it!!
