Support with FET — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

Support with FET

Hi all!
I am anxiously waiting for AF so we can start our FET. We did 1 fresh transfer and was unsuccessful so my DH and I are praying and have everything crossed to get that BFP for a healthy pregnancy and baby!!
I would really love to hear all your stories! Thanks to boards like this I find so much comfort and support with you all!

Re: Support with FET

  • Hi,

    I had success on my first FET cycle, I am currently 6w1d.  Our first fresh transfer was also a BFN and I was so discouraged I wanted to wait but my DH thought it would be best to jump straight into the next cycle and we had our first BFP after trying for 4 years. Good luck on your FET!

    I did a FET transfer after 7 failed IUIs. They transferred 3 embryos and I am pregnant with twins

    Edit: wait. I did not do frozen. It was fresh/thawed/ whatever the opposite

  • AF finally came today, so excited! I can start my Estrodial pills now and baseline ultrasound is scheduled for Sunday morning! Praying that this gives us our healthy miracle baby!!
  • Good luck!

    I am almost 30 weeks pregnant from my first FET.  My first fresh cycle resulted in a loss and we only had one healthy embie left to transfer so I was not hopeful but this kid was meant to be! :)
  • @Pookster1020 I am overjoyed for you and your story, thanks for sharing! I also have one embie to transfer and can't help but feel a lil hopeless but it seems that a lot of ppl are luckier the second time around with a FET! I am already trying to have a plan C but DH is confident that this is the "golden egg" and that we'll cross that bridge when and if we get there!
    Prayers to you for a continued healthy and happy pregnancy!
  • I transferred two in my fresh cycle and neither took and then my FET both took but I lost one by 5weeks. I'm now 19w with a little boy!!

    My clinic had better successes with FET! They said that the body was pumped full of less so was a nicer environment and that was helpful for a lot of women.

    It's worth asking your clinic the success rate with both. But I was actually more excited of the FET because our clinic was so much more optimistic with it.

  • Transferred two during my fresh, and miscarried/CP. transferred two (ccs tested) during FET, now 10 weeks with twins. The FET was well worth it; my doctor feels like my body wasn't ready to accept embryos after the stim meds during the fresh cycle. :) good luck!!!

  • I'm 18 weeks preganant from my second FET. My first one was 3 years ago and it failed. Then I had a natural surprise pregnancy right after that failed transfer for which I have my son. This baby was from that IVF cycle 3 years ago! I knew when I saw the photo of the embryo on the screen that it was going to work. I don't know why, but it looked ready and so much better than the embryo they put in the first time. Good luck!

    TTC 10/11. IUI 2/12. BFP 3/8/12. 4/26/12 missed mc. RE consult 5/17/12. IVF #1 ER 7/13/12 53R, 41M ICSIed, 32F, 8 5d, 6 6d blasts - all PGD/frozen. PGD results 1 normal M and 1 normal F, 1 maybe M. FET 9/6, transferred 1 F embie. Beta 9/15 BFN. FET#2 planned for 11/2012 put off until 2013. Surprise BFP 11/21/12!! My son was born on 7/24/13!

    FET 4/28/2015 - Transferred 1 M embie. 5/6/15 BFP!

    I did an FET. I finished my IVF cycle in November but I had mild OHSS so the doctor had me wait to transfer until January (so no fresh cycle for me). Doing an FET cycle is so much easier than IVF on so many different levels. Less medication, less swelling and bloating, less doctors appointments.

    My FET happened on Jan 9th and we got our BFP ten days later! Only about six more weeks to go before I can hold my baby in my arms.
