Hi ladies - I hope you don't mind me joining in here. DH and I are both 30. It took 2 years and 2 IVF cycles (one fresh transfer and one FET) to get pregnant with our now 15 month old daughter. We are planning to try for #2 and are hoping to do a FET in mid-December. My blood work results have slowly been coming in and were looking good, but it looks like my thyroid, though within normal ranges, came back higher than my RE wants. We are currently in a holding pattern while I wait to hear back about what I can do to improve my levels.

Good luck to everyone here.

Thanks! We have 3 healthy frozen embryos remaining from our two IVF attempts. The second time around, we did genetic screening of our 4 fresh and 2 previously frozen embryos. 4 of them came back normal (3 girls and one boy). We transferred the highest grade embryo for our first FET, which is now our healthy 15 month old daughter. The next highest grade embryo (from IVF #1) is the boy. The remainder of the healthy ones (all girls) are from IVF #2.

Headed to a baby shower brunch. I hope everyone has a nice weekend.

Thanks for the warm welcome! I'm a little out of practice on keeping up with a thread like this and all of the details for all of the wonderful ladies here, but I'll get better.

Thanks! Knowing the baby's gender when we did our transfer allowed us to take advantage of some good sales around Christmas. A unique bonus for pricey testing. When are you planning for your FET?

Thanks! That's great that you have a tentative transfer date! Is this your first? I believe I got my first (and only) BFP 6dp5dt (I caved and tested early! ).

The pink summary that I think you are referring to is a signature line. If you click on the "User CP" link on the upper, left of your screen, there should be an "Edit Signature" link on the left.

What grades are your embryos?
Oh that would've awesome to be cycle buddies! My 4 frosties are 1-AA 1-AB and 2-BA I think. The dr saidtheywere awesome and that's really all I heard lol

We will be transferring the next highest quality that survives the thawing process. One of each (boy, girl) would be cool, but we would be over the moon with either gender. The boy has been frozen, thawed, and frozen again (at the suggestion of my RE since we were doing genetic testing of fresh embryos at the same time). I surely hope that he can survive a second thaw. We have 3 more tries for baby #2, and then we are probably out of the fertility game.

I did acupuncture before and after our second IVF attempt and the following FET. I will be doing that again this time around.
