Come and keep me company
I'm having my 3rd natural FET Saturday, 4th transfer overall.
This time my last 2 embryos ( from 1st stim cycle) will be grown to day 5. Normally i have a 2 day transfer.
Hopefully one survives and transfer goes ahead. Although this transfer is a little bit of an experiment to see why I'm not PG yet. FS thinks maybe they don't make it past day three, we have MFI.
Good luck to everyone who will be joining and having FETS soon

FET June/July, Welcome

What will happen if (fx) they both make it to day 5? will they refreeze 1 or put both back?
I have an appt on the 27th for nk cell test results. Hoping that we'll have a FET towards the end of July. This will be our 4th tf too, although only our second FET.

Katherine I hope June doesn't drag for you, waiting is the worst! Good luck with your nk cell test
2 both making 5 days is a long shot, not likely to happen but if they both made it I would use both as I couldn't risk refreezing again, it wouldn't thaw again after being frozen twice! I will be happy with just one, my FS is confident we will get one. I hope so

I might join you too if that's ok? My first FET wasn't successful so I started bloods this morning (nothing happening go back Sat CD 14) if all goes to plan hopefully get a transfer end of next week. After last cycle not working I'm finding it tough going again straight away emotionally but I just keep telling myself to move forwards.
Kmvw: I'll be keeping everything crossed they make it to day 5 but I'm sure they'll be strong little embys wanting to behave for you
Katherine: let us know your results go! I want my dr to test for NK cells as I think I have a carrying issue (only because nothing else is a factor according to FS) but he wants to wait another few cycles at least. Wishing you all the best x

Hi Hope it is very emotionally draining, I find once everything starts rolling along again I pick up very quickly. It's not easy to keep going back to back though, last failed cycle my FS asked if I wanted a break. I declined as it wouldn't be a break for me when I know what I want and the only way forward is to get back on the horse.
So far so good with my embies, I didn't get contacted to go in for a 2 day transfer this morning so they must be nearly past day 3 now
I've had a great day today dh had 3 monthly oncology scans bt's etc (Testicular Cancer) on Monday and we went in for his oncology appointment today and all is great still! Now 3 monthly checks have been pushed back to 6 monthly checks, so happy and relieved

I'm so happy his app went well. Cancers horrible and I'm sorry you have that on top of ivf you must never leave the drs office!! But yay for moving to 6 monthly apps hopefully by this time next yearly theyll be 12monthly for him!
Yay for day 3 embies :-) I agree I want a baby so bad just got to keep going and it'll happen! I've been lucky that we were overseas until yesterday and I was away when AF arrived so had all my down time away relaxing..in hindsight being preggas in Thailand would've turned me into a neurotic mess with trying to find safe food.

Hi ladies, I hope today's gone well for both of you.
That's great to hear kmvw, both about your dh's results and not hearing from your clinic! I can't put it into words, but sums up some of what I feel for your family.
I agree with how tough it is when you want to keep focus on keeping on going, but finding it really draining at the same time. We've had 2 stim cycles since November, and the month wait for the FET transfer after each fresh tf drove me batty! Even though I could feel it getting to me, all I wanted to do was put my head down and keep plowing on til we were successful. Waiting for these tests has been extremely frustrating, but it's been great to get my head back normal!
I'm glad you had a relaxing holiday Hope. Even though being pregnant would have more than made up for it, it must have been nice not trying to find 'safe' food. I had a visual of you hunting down vending machines for packaged stuff while dh scoffed market food!
Tbh I never thought about nk cells until my fs brought it up. Now I'm glad she's
cautious, I hate the idea that we could have kept putting our embies into a hostile environment . Even if these tests come back clear we'll have more of an idea on where to look in the future. Does your fs prefer to wait for a certain number of transfers before does tests?
Hope to hear good news from you both soon

Holidays have been amazing! Makes me wish that we could win the lotto so I could focus only on having a baby but unfortunately this is so super expensive it'll all be worth it though. Just nice to be able to go to appointments without having to leave work early all the time, how do you ladies manage it with your work? I'm lucky that im the store manager bug still feel bad and find it hard.
My FS is hesitant to do to many tests due to my age...he feels like it "should" happen soon enough but has agreed that if this cycle doesn't works he'll see me and decide where to go from their..but he's not exactly proactive in investigations just yet which I guess is saving me invasive procedures and money but I also hate the thought of using embys that don't have a chance if their is something else going on too.
I both hope it's all clear so you can cross that off the list but then I know sometimes I wish that they will find something concrete with me that can be treated. Lol I actually think I'd be happier jabbing,sniffing or popping something that would "seem" to be doing something extra. I guess for me the natural FETs just feel like the past 18 cycles that have got us BFNs.
Let us know for sure how you appointment goes next week. Xx

Had my first appointment with a new FS today, there are so many tests my dh and i should have had done before cycle 1! I wish I had of started with this new FS from day 1.
I actually would have rather spent more money on testing prior to cycle 1, as numerous transfers could of failed because of the issues she is testing us for.
I probably have to go on Clexane next cycle as I have autoimmune issues which could be causing problems.
I haven't heard from mivf today, so my embies must be alive still! One more day to grow. I have a good feeling

My work's been pretty flexible so far. It helps that one of my managers has been through PICSI before, and has been very understanding. No one bats an eyelid at me ducking out for a bt, and I've been able to take leave or swap shifts to accommodate other appts. My biggest work issue is actually the work itself. I'm in disability services, and Murphy's law had my cycles and mc at some pretty full on times with work. Naturally.
It's good to know that your fs will work with your concerns, of course I hope that there's no need for investigating cos you get a BFP this time
