Welcome, babyseeker!

Kk, congrats! Fingers crossed for you. Are you going to wait for your official test, or obsessively test at home at the earliest possible moment? I'm glad to hear there are clinics that choose to transfer one. Mine does two by default, but we are choosing to only transfer one at a time.

Babylights, how are you doing?

Amy- I think I will hold out this time. I tested once or twice last time and it made everything way worse. I going to wait (hopefully!). I think they chose one due to our age (5) and no other issues noted. I think it's possible if we have another failed tx, two would be considered.

Babyseeker-Welcome!!

Clinic called this am! 3 more made it to top grade blastocyst A/A! Total 6 on ice and we can't be more excited! I hope this means I don't have to do the whole thing again! We had such great results this month, I just am so happy. Last month was needless to say a disaster!

Any updated for anyone else?

-KK

Babylights-
I test the 8th I think? So 10 days post transfer. I'm super tired today, not sure if it's from the events of yesterday or the meds or both! Yuck. Does the estrogen make you sleepy? I haven't been on it before. There is a lot of prep going into your cycle. Go YOU!

Kk, that's awesome that you have 6 to freeze! It's such a relief to have frozen embryos after going through all of this. After having my son, I was obviously very glad I had gone through the whole process, but I also vowed never to do it again. Frozen transfers are so much easier to go through.

I was super tired the day after both of my transfers, too. I don't know if it's the medications or the emotions or something else happening physically (implantation!!???), but you're definitely not alone.

Babylights, that's so weird that the estrogen is making you nauseous! The only side effect I get from estrogen is that it messes up my sleep. I wake up, WIDE AWAKE, at 3am, and can't go back to sleep until around 5:30, which is unfortunate when my alarm is set for 6. Anyway, I hope you'll move out of that phase ASAP.

No updates for me. I just have to wait for my period and then they'll see if I can be ready for a January transfer. I'm figuring I have at least 2 weeks to wait for that, but who knows... clearly my cycle isn't doing what it's supposed to do, so maybe I'll be lucky and it'll come sooner.

Kk, I'm glad you're planning to not test. I tested early both times and definitely made it much more of a rollercoaster than it needed to be. Hang in there.

Amy-
Do they regulate your cycles after AF? Sorry I haven't done any FET so I don't know the process at all.

Yeah I think the tx is an emotional thing, and those always exhaust me. Blah! feeling better today though, but still a little tired. Just glad I don't have to go into the clinic for a bit!!

I think different clinics do it differently. Since mine has to get me onto their schedule, it's birth control, Lupron, Estrogen, and Progesterone. So it's still kind of a lot of stuff, but it's night-and-day easier not having to go through the stimming and retrieval parts!

Also, it's a total of 2 ultrasounds and 3 blood tests prior to transfer (2 of which are on the same visits as the ultrasounds), so it doesn't feel like you live at the clinic like it does for fresh cycles.

Amy,
Thanks for the info! Yeah that does sound better than a fresh transfer! Does your clinic have cyclic transfers (group everyone together?)?

Yes. It's a smallish clinic and they only do cycles 5-6 times per year, with everyone grouped together on just one or two days each time. I know they bring in their embryologist at those times, and I think there are some other specialists that only come at those times.

Kk, are you passing the time ok? Hopefully not driving yourself crazy with the wait?

Babylights, how are you doing with the estrogen?

Hoping to join in. I'm doing my 6th IVF, retrieval set for November 25th. I'm excited and nervous. I'm just hoping for a good outcome. Fingers crossed. Good luck to all!
