Hi @mamaK225 I haven’t done an ERA but since it take awhile
to get the results back your window would have passed even if you are
pre-receptive so you would have to wait until the next month. I’ve even heard of some RE’s adjusting the
timing for the second cycle and doing a second ERA to make sure it is receptive
before going on to the FET.
Welcome @radmon27! I
thought you looked familiar I think I might have cycled with you for my
IVF#2 which was April/May 2017. I’m
currently stimming for IVF#3 and after my retrieval will be doing a FET of one
of my 2 frosties from IVF#2. Congrats on your donor and hoping that December
is your lucky month!
TTC since 2012 | Unexplained Infertility -- Sept 2017 found cyst seemingly confirming previously suspected endometriosis | IVF Sept/Oct 2017 Negative | FET scheduled early December

Welcome @latvaughanash! I have an intense fear of multiple births so I’m a big fan of the single transfer.
Congrats on getting your transfer date @tnho413!
Sounds like we are all off to a great start for some
@decmberdoll27 glad things are going well for your scan and excited
that you will be the first December FET!
I know it can be hard to hope when there has been so much disappointment
in the past but keep your head up. We
never know when our time will come J
My transfer ended up being scheduled much sooner than I thought (11/25) but I’m
still going to lurk around with you ladies and cheer you on J
@JamieH2000 I’m curious, what is the benefit of doing a
stimulated FET? I haven’t heard of it being done before.
@alohakumu glad your appointment went good as well.
@DecemberDoll27 Good Luck!I am right behind you on Dec 5th so long as my TSH is ok this Friday when I have my next appointment. Doing acupuncture, yoga,meditation and eating super healthy to try to get the lining a little thicker. I feel like I’m training for a marathon!
@JamieH2000 thanks for the explanation on the stimulated FET! Sometimes with BC it does take a little longer for the sims to respond. Even without BC I usually didn’t have any >10mm after 3days of stims so you are probably right where you need to be.
@AlohaKumu things are getting close
I go in for my FET tomorrow. We will also get the blast report from our last IVF to see what we can freeze and send for PGS. I’m a little nervous but also very excited.
We transferred 1 PGS normal this time around. This is our first time transferring a PGS
tested embryo so my hopes are pretty high and she/he stays! I think I’m probably going to cheat and test
early but haven’t committed yet. I keep
changing my mind on it.
We had 4 that were frozen and biopsied on Saturday we were
hoping the other two might catch up but no luck there. I have to admit I’m a little worried. We have had a really low % of embryos come
back normal and with our previous history it’s not very likely we have any in
that batch. But nothing we can do at
this point but wait and hope that there is a lucky one in there.
@tnh0413 I haven’t had to take provera before but I hope AF
shows up for you. Seems to inconveniently
not show up when we want her to.
@JamieH2000 I’m hoping things pick up for you and that
lining starts to thicken. It would be
awful to be canceled two cycles in a row but your follicles still sounds like
they need a few days so you definitely have time to get there!
@DecemberDoll27 PIO does hurt but sometimes if you have the
wrong spot it can hurt even more. I
really suggest using a marker. Draw a
horizontal line from your butt crack towards your side. Then a vertical line through the middle of
your butt cheek. You should have a four
squares on your cheek. Always do the
shot in the top outer square. After we
did the initial lines we drew sharpie circles on me that we refreshed every
couple of days so we knew we were hitting the right spot. Often a nurse at your clinic can do it if you
ask. Here is a decent graphic of the
right spot. https://www.google.com/search?q=progesterone+in+oil+shot+location&client=firefox-b-ab&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjwjO33mt_XAhUK92MKHf8KB4sQ_AUICygC&biw=1266&bih=842#imgrc=I5hvELj7oK9V3M:
Other things that have helped me is using warm water on my
hands and then holding the oil to warm it and having a little ice pack at the
ready afterwards. And massage it after
it goes in. Good luck. They really aren’t very fun and even with all
this you will still be sore.
Hi @bethann1022 good to see you here retrieval buddy :P I expected to stim much longer than I did so
I joined the December group and have stuck around J excited to keep seeing your story
Sorry my font is so huge. I can't figure out where to change it. @JamieH2000 Never heard about a stimulated FET cycle before either. Hmm, I wonder why my doctor did not discuss that with me. I am doing a medicated FET but my lining doesn't want to go beyond 6.5-6.8 Unfortunately, that's pretty typical for me (I don't know what it would be if I had a natural cycle which I don't) and we are still going to move forward with the transfer on Dec 7th. But I didn't know there was any other alternative for the lining thickening. @2MomsHoping Fingers crossed for you on your transfer and your blasts. I only had 1 out of 5 test normal so I know it can be disappointing, but on the other hand it's great that we found a normal and that raises our chances of successful FET. And there is no way I'm not going to cheat after my transfer, I have too many of those cheapie tests hanging around to control myself!
@tnh0413 that stinks.
I’m sorry L I
wish these clinics didn’t close over Christmas but I get that need family time
too. I hope you can take advantage of
some extra indulgences over the holidays since you are delayed.
@DecemberDoll27 glad it was a little better for you last
I feel like I got off so easy this time. I’ve always done PIO and this time they
switched me to the endometrium and no sticky estrogen patches. I’m a little paranoid at less medication
since the progression always seems to be towards more needles but it has been a
