    Hi Sandy! I'm so sorry about your failed cycle :hugs: I'm hopefully doing a FET in January too. I'm finishing my second IVF cycle right now. I'm doing two back to back freeze all cycles because I need to have surgery in December to remove two ovarian cysts. I should be able to start the FET process in mid January. I'm not familiar with the FET process yet so I'm happy to have someone else going though it at the same time! Fx for both of us :)

    May I join you all? I am getting ready for a natural FET in hopefully Jan as well!

    Happy - best of luck at your scan!! So exciting!! :)

    Sorry about your failed cycle Sandy. Great to have those frosties waiting for us though :)

    Em - the FET cycle is so much easier as Happy said. Not nearly as many appointments.

    Hopefully we all can get our BFPs with the new year :)

    Welcome bballbaby sorry to hear about your last FET, glad you are joining us and as you say hopefully get our :bfp: in the new year! :hugs:

    Welcome Em260 Sorry to hear you have to have surgery in Dec but glad you are able to do back to back freezes before it all happens and Fx'd you will be starting FET soon. I don't know much about FET but have started to learn a lot from peoples post on here and sounds like its getting more and more successful plus its not as harsh on our bodies. :hugs:

    Really glad that i have you to share this experience with. I have a very good feeling that 2013 is our year! xx :happydance::happydance::happydance::happydance:

    Hi Sandy, I don't mind at all. I am doing IVF in case I lose my only ovary during surgery. I lost my other ovary to ovarian cancer six years ago. I also have endometriosis so my RE said it's unlikely that I will be able to get pregnant on my own. My doctors are pretty sure that my ovarian cancer has returned but we won't know until the pathology reports come back after my surgery.

    Em - You really have been through it all. I'm so sorry to hear about the ovarian cancer fx'd that it hasn't came back :hugs:

    We are doing IVF due to DH being diagnosed Lymphoma cancer in 2010 and had to undergo 6 months of chemo and a stem cell transplant in Jan 2011. Due to this a side effect was infertility, he was tested in March this year to find he was sterile which meant no chance of falling pregnant naturally! So am glad we have the option for IVF xx

    Oh wow, I'm sorry you and your DH have been though all of that :hugs:. It's so hard to go though but I think it makes you appreciate everything so much more. Thank you, I am very hopeful that even if it has come back it will be the same type I had last time. I am so happy we have the technology to do IVF! This wasn't an option not too long ago. We are very lucky!

    I agree but i know what you mean by going through everything we have it makes you appreciate things so much more and I've gone into this whole IVF process with the attitude that its such a little sacrifice that we have to go through to have DH with me fit and healthy.
    Ive got a really good feeling that we will have our :bfp: very soon! xx

    That is the best attitude to have. It makes the whole process much easier when you have that mindset :thumbup:
    Totally agree, this is going to be our year! Bring on the BFPs!! :happydance:

    I'm still waiting on AF to arrive...she is taking forever it seems. I have a endometrial biopsy to schedule with my Dec. cycle. They are making sure I don't have an LH hormone defect being I have to do a natural FET. We have MF but I never could take birth control pills due to getting severe migraines. Always something! :)

    Em - will be thinking about you tomorrow! Good luck with your ER! :)

    Sandy - I have learned a ton from other ladies on this site. I honestly don't know what I'd do without it. It is so hard to find people that truly understand what it feels like to go through this. I am glad to have meet you all as well! :hugs:

    I just got caught up. I'm so sorry for everything you all have gone though. :hugs: Praying for you Em. I also feel very thankful for IVF. This was our only option for having children as well.
