    Hopefully your DP doesn't have any issues discovered and as crappy as it is, hopefully the past experiences boil down to bad luck and she might have a change of luck in the future (hopefully the very near future). Has Dr Clark not wanted to do any testing up until this stage? I would have thought they would jump on to it considering she is young and I'm assuming extremely fit and healthy given her occupation. Anyway hopefully there is no need for any of that anyway!
    They knew that this was our plan. Originally we were planning to just cancel if necessary but now we might've changed plans slightly. We didn't want to wait another cycle because my period was due before her bloods which is why I had to book on before bloods.

    Because I have a very regular, stock standard cycle, no fertility issues and have already had a successful transfer before, my FET will be a natural one, no drugs, just trigger and pregnyl follow ups as is standard. I will just have a day 10 blood test and a scan on day 11, and I will most likely trigger around then too, as I usually ovulate day 13/14. 3 days after ovulation, they will take out an embryo, thaw it, and if it survives, put it right back in. If that cycle doesn't work, I'll probably get them to culture the next embryo to blastocyst stage in another cycle. Hopefully it doesn't come down to that!

    With testing, they usually don't test until you've had 3 unexplained miscarriages (incl Chems) although in our case DP didn't want to bother at this stage as she's emotionally exhausted and wants it to be over either way - with a pregnancy for her, or for me. Hence she will have a break and we will go back at some stage next year to do some testing and then stim again. Her bloods from both her stim cycles suggest there could be an egg quality problem though.

    Sorry we haven't been more of a support for you both @rainbowroad. I can only imagine the strength it takes to pick yourselves up each time and try again. I really hope you have a bfp on your way very soon.

    TTC is such an emotional time and you probably feel not a lot of people get it. I've also struggled with my emotions during pregnancy. I thought doing IVF/ICSI and a FET that because everything was timed for us I'd be in control of things for the pregnancy. But I've had days I would cry hysterically and not know why. I guess the biggest relief for me was knowing I wasn't the only one and that not everyone speaks about these parts of pregnancy and TTC. I feel much better these days but I was my own worst enemy and was very harsh on myself questioning why I wasn't cherishing every moment.

    Hang in there X

    Thanks ladies. It's not here, really. It's just everywhere. People lose interest and that's hard when you're in the thick of it and need support more than ever.

    We are patiently waiting for bloods tomorrow. DP is super super nervous.

    Are you guys testing in the morning @rainbow road? Have you thought about testing tonight? It would be really daunting but at least you are ready to go as well. That would be a little comforting to know there is a back up plan in place. I really hope the test tomorrow brings some good news!!

    I think we will test. Not tonight, but in the morning. DP has had some very light brown spotting which could be AF on the way but could also be an implantation bleed. I had the same around the same time with Toby, so feeling nervous but also a little excited. I hope it's not for nothing!

    Wow how many days past transfer is she? Hopefully it's a good sign! Make sure you let us know how you go in the morning! When you are ready to share of course.
