Hey ladies! I thought I would check in and catch up. I've been so distracted lately (and a nervous wreck) with IVF coming up that I haven't been online much.

How is everyone doing? I have my CD3 sometime this week to determine if we do IVF next cycle. I'm SO anxious about the entire process. Our doctor gave us a 60% chance for success but I honestly don't feel that good about it. I don't want to go into this thinking it will be my miracle worker and then end up with yet another *BFN*.

Hey em mine were frozen at day 6 too. My last fet was done using a day 6 and it worked although it ended in m/c but both the consultant and I both think this was because of my lining being too thick my next transfer will be done with a day 6 too so don't worry if they're a day older they're a day stronger
What is the surgery you're having hun? Sorry if you've already posted this but I'm updating on my phone and it takes ages to scroll back through earlier posts!!
Hugs to everyone else

Mbrink what is cd3?
I know what you mean about not wanting to get too optimistic. I drives my oh nuts with my 'negative' thoughts but I think I'm just trying to protect myself!!

Thanks for the invite Sandy

Hey everyone!!! For those that don't know me I am a surrogate. We had out first FET in Sept. ((Transferred 2 as we will next time)) and we got a bfp 5 days later Our Beta numbers doubled, and then stopped doubling only growing about 200 pts per week. So they called it chemical and had me stop meds.

After nothing happening (should've had a period) I went in for an U/S and found one blighted ovum with a possible smaller one that has started to... disintegrate?

After my body refusing to return to normal (haven't had a period since) they set me on a full month of bcp and I should be starting Meds the end of December for a January transfer. We're thinking the 25th.

Hoping you'll let me join you all and hoping you and my Intended Parents get a sticky baby (or two)

I hope I can join this thread. I'm doing an IVF cycle in Jan, but it isn't FET since this will be my first cycle. Second if you count the last one that was converted to IUI the day before my scheduled ER. Nervous this wont be successful after the last one, but I'm on a different protocol and hopefully that will help things.

Welcome phantom and mells, good to have more ladies in this thread to join us in our journey for our in 2013!

Phantom sorry to hear about previous cycle. Fx'd for you and intended parents on the next one.

Mells sorry to hear about your iui, if you dont mind me asking why did you have to do iui instead of ivf?

Boofle and mbrink, think in this whole process you try to stay positive but want to be realistic at the same time, but thats what these threads are for to vent and ask questions and get hope from other peoples successful ivf processes

Em, hope your appt went well xxx

Thanks Boofle! It's so good to hear that day 6 freezing is done a lot. That totally makes sense that they are even stronger by then. My surgery is to remove two ovarian cysts.

Phantom - welcome!

Mells - good to see you over here

MBrink - I was the same way going through it the first time, not very optimistic and really guarding my heart. But the odds your Dr. gave you sound really good

AFM - I got a call from the Embryologist that 4 of our embryos were frozen this morning yayy!! And there are 3 more that they think might be ready later today or tomorrow morning! I'm really happy . My surgery is scheduled for January 9th. I was hoping to do it sooner but my Oncologist wants my ovary to go back down in size and and residual cysts from the stims to disappear before she operates.

Em, great news about your embies, fx'd for the other 3. It's not as early as you wanted for your op but at least you have a date and can now focus on that and start to plan things. How long do you have to edit after your op to do FET? Xxx
