@hopefull29 - congrats on the pregnancy that is such great news. Were you taking progestrone before it ? What dose
@cag14 thanks Hun. I only started on crinone the day of the fet. With my fresh et I was on it before. I had much more cramping this time but I actually think they might have been implantation cramps- I had some spotting 4dp5dt.
Best of luck and hope to hear some good news tomorrow xx
@pingc383 I'm so sorry Hun. It's never an easy phone call to get so I'm wishing you all the best to get through today. Fingers crossed for next months FET. Sometimes the "lower" quality embies implant and the "better" quality ones don't. My clinic don't discuss grades with us for that reason. They always put the best looking ones in first though. I have everything crossed for your FET next month. Will you do it unmedicated or medicated?
My FS said because I ovulate on my own (my problem is blocked tubes) we could do a natural FET. I ovulated after my stim cycle on day 22 which was a little later for me but they were OK with that as apparently after a stim cycle it can slow your body down. I started off doing opk at home, then blood tests every second day until they detected my surge the FET 5 days later then started on crinone gel.
Personally I think if you can do it an unmedicated cycle is better for your body as it's more natural but just go with what the specialists tell you as they're the experts and it's what you pay the big bucks for. Some say medicated are better because they time the exact time of ovulation.
Will they put all 4 in for you? Hoping you get some answers soon x
@pingc383 - So sorry to read that you are out this cycle hun it has definitely been a roller coaster of a ride for you this cycle. Hoping you take time for yoyrself and manage to get through today. I really wouldn't take too much consideration into the grading of your embies, according to wazza we seem to make chromosomally crappy eggs and the high graded embies may be the ones with the most severe issues as generally they look good but its an underlying issue. How many cycles have you done at this point? If you have done a few maybe consider testing the embies if you have only donena few maybe you gave just been unlucky so far. I wouldn't start testing too early on as its an expensive process. Hope af turns up quickly so you can move forwards xx
@PING383 sorry to hear hun. I thought if you ovulated early that could be an issue as the eggs wouldn't be mature and the lining wouldn't be thick enough? Maybe you would need a medicated FET cycle. Its just so hard re failed cycles and having no answers. I went through a similar thing to you where we had a good number off follicles retrieved 13-16 but only 2 and 1 left to transfer... We have tested everything and all the doctors can say is that it is unexplained which sucks but I have learned to deal with it and just go with the flow now.
I finally got my period so I can start jabbing soon yay.
@pingc383 - Two failed cycles isnt too many (all though I am sure its 2 too many for you and you want that bfp asap) maybe a little early to move onto the expense on testing. Yes when I said testing I meant PGD, I did test some of my frozen embies in the past and it is possible but does put them under extra stress due to needing to be thawed and refrozen.
@nattie84 - Great news on af, bring on the injections x
