Thanks for the welcome ladies

Em well done 8 embryos is a great number fx for Friday

Sandy - I'll hopefully be having my transfer mid January but it will depend when af shows her ugly head next - hopefully not when the labs closed. And then it will all depend when I ovulate cos the transfer will happen 5/6 days later but if that falls on a weekend it's game over for another month!!

Pball - what is PIO? My clinic don't offer anything after transfer in terms of progesterone support but I didn't tolerate that well anyway.

Hope everyone else is okay

Fx'd it will be ET in mid Jan. I'm assuming its game over if you ovulate on a weekend due to your clinic closes on a weekend? xx

Thanks everyone! I am still on So yesterday when the nurse called to give me the results I asked her about the FET schedule. I was so surprised at how little is involved in it. Here's what she told me:

- u/s and b/w on cycle day 2
- Estrogen patches for 12 days
- u/s to check lining
- transfer 6 days after lining check and begin progesterone support - PIO shots
- beta 10 days after transfer

So basically from start to transfer it's about 18 days I am so so excited!! I just can't wait to get there. I've already estimated my approximate start date. My cycles range from 24-28 days so my start date could be anywhere from January 7th-14th. I may end up having to wait an extra cycle after my surgery so that would put me at a start date of approximately January 30th. Of course all of this depends on my surgery but it's fun for me to look forward to starting the cycle

Ooh I really hope you don't have to sit out another month due to the weekend!
PIO is progesterone in oil. It's an intramuscular shot (ouch). My clinic uses it instead of the vaginal suppositories. I am not looking forward to it but I know it will be worth it!

Boofle - progesterone in oil as Em said. My clinic has us on it from a few days before transfer until 12 weeks with a BFP. I have heard of many natural FETs that don't use it as well. It seems to be the only hormone my body can tolerate. Estrogen pills/patches just give me migraines so I can't take them anymore.

I hope all of you ladies are holding up okay!
