Just a question...

Hello Ladies,  So I know that IVF and FET has been around for a long time and the doctors have their research done... but my question is this. I am just starting my FET #1 cycle. My fresh transfer was cancelled because of my progesterone level being to high and my uterus was a head of schedule. So with this FET cycle I have been on BCP since 10-18. Today was my last pill. I started Lupron yesterday. The nurse told me to expect AF this thurs or Friday. When I start that would be CD1 right? My FET is 11-20. In my natural cycle I OV on CD 11 (early). So here is the question... why would they not try to do the transfer closer to my normal OV day and when the embryo would normally be getting to the uterus? My concern is waiting till my CD 20 my uterus will be too far along again like it was before.. I may be over thinking this and not making any sense. Sorry if this is a ramble.

Any answers are welcome, even just to tell me I make no sense!

Have a good day, and thanks!

Re: Just a question...

  • Thank you @ThoseThreeWords I know the doctors have this all down to a science. I am just so nervous my lining is going to be in the wrong place. I need to just stop worrying and be positive :)

  • I agree, it can be so hard to let go of control and stop worrying! I found it helpful to refocus the worry I was feeling and think of it, instead, as a push to keep informed and to advocate for myself by voicing concerns and questions along the way -- while also trusting the process and the RE. That last part -- trusting, and finding ways to build that up -- was what helped me control my worry the most.
