Re: October FET

  • @sarcasticowl TY that’s helpful. I’m gonna have to call my nurse and ask about it bc they just have me going in for BW and Us the day before transfer.

    @tnh0413 I think last time I had bfn on day 7 but then i had a faint line on day 8. 

    But this is exactly why I’m not testing. You’re lucky your beta is on Friday. They make me wait to Monday.  :s

  • Been out for a few days, visiting a local college to do recruiting for my company.

    @hgasic - I'm so, so sorry, love. That negative beta is always a huge kick in the pants/uterus. I pray that you can find peace in the results and move forward with a renewed sense of hope :smiley: I'm rooting for ya! 

    *TW*
    @Holls214 - Congrats! Exhaustion was my main symptom, too (2 years ago). No matter what anyone says, having fewer/more symptoms has no bearing on it all. So I hope you continue with only dealing with the exhaustion. Mine let up around week 14-15 ... hoping yours eases up even earlier :)
    *TW end*

    @prudence9-2 and @tnh0413 - I think I'm more nervous about controlling my urge to POAS - especially after two failed FETs over the last few months - after my transfer. May you both get wonderfully fabulous news soon!

  • @MamaK225 for me it is easier to continue going without not knowing than having to continue and do all the injections (and I have 2 a day! Neupogen and PIO) after getting BFN in a HPT. 

    @tnh0413 I’m not sure. Because even if I get a positive it could still be a chemical like I had last time.

  • @mamak225 May I ask if/how your protocol changed after two failed FETs? I'm not feeling super confident about this month's transfer, especially considering the horrid news about my estrogen level being in the gutter, so I'm curious what, if any, conversation you had with your RE and changes you made. No pressure to answer, just wondering  :)



    Bababattytinjp78
  • @prudence9-2 ya you’re right. It doesn’t help with chemical. I haven’t tested yet. My beta is next week on Thursday. Have you had any symptoms?

    @mjbarretto just feeling sharp pain when I get up fast. Which is something I felt last two times when I got pregnant. Haven’t felt this since Sat. But I’m trying real hard to get up slowly every time so it won’t happen. So I think it implanted. But did it stay there??? That’s the big question. Other than that, no symptoms...

    and what about u?

  • @prudence9-2 I’ve been feeling cramps here and there. But today seems a little more. I don’t know if that’s implantation cramp. Are you suppose to have some bleeding or spotting when implantation happens? I really need to stop googling all these things. It’s drivine me nuts. 
    Bababattytinjp78MamaK225
  • @mjbarretto you can have it or not (implantation bleeding). I had it after my first FET but not after the second. (I think chances are higher for not having implantation bleeding)

    @sarcasticowl - We had a few sit-downs with our RE after the second failure to go over our options. Essentially, he said the biggest reason for failure is embryo issues and then either uterine or lining issues ... OR the dreaded "unknown." We could either (1) do PGS, (2) do additional tests on me, or (3) continue as usual. Since our embies have already been frozen, we felt there was more harm than benefit in doing PGS at this point (that additional thaw, freeze cycle) and I've always responded well to the medicated cycles - and have actually conceived - we would just get a little more assertive with FET#4: we transferred two embryos. Our RE doesn't require PGS (apparently, many do) and since we had so many high (visually rated) quality embryos, there was no initial concern or anything pointing us to consider PGS. And all of my labs have come within the middle of the normal range (no outliers), so it doesn't make sense to do any more tests on me. So, worst case scenario: we have another failure and do PGS on our remaining embryos (since the risk is higher than we thought). May I ask - why are you not feeling confident about your transfer? Have you POAS or are you just not having any symptoms ... ?

  • @mamak225 No symptoms, sadly. None that couldn't be attributed to the hormones, at least. I also feel nothing out of the ordinary. I know that doesn't mean anything, but knowing that I have uterine issues leaves kind of a black cloud over everything. We had 6 PGS tested embryos and the first one, a 3AA, didn't stick. My lining was more than 9 and my levels were all perfect so it should have been a slam dunk. Which is why I have about zero confidence in my body this go around :(



  • @mamak225 How did your FET go today? I had mine today and have been laying low with Netflix :) Good luck!

  • @cdavies05 - Went smoothly - though another RE at the practice did it since mine was at the hospital, dealing with an emergency surgery. I, too, am laying low and getting in some Hulu time!

    @sarcasticowl - The term PUPO is for a reason ... don't let you second-guess yourself!! TBH, when I got pregnant with my daughter with FET#1, I didn't feel a thing until about week 7-8 ... and all I got was extreme exhaustion. Sometimes no news is good news! I do understand your frustrations, my two failed FETs were both AAAs, so hearing the reason for failure being "something that can't be explained" is SO awful/annoying/anger-inducing. You'd think going through a process like this would be seamless and - at least - give answers. When are your betas scheduled?

  • @MamaK225 My beta is Monday. I'll probably POAS on Saturday or Sunday (9dp5dt or 10dp5dt) so I don't have to freak out waiting for that awful phone call AT WORK. These REs really should have an after hours person who can call people at home if they choose, you know? Who wants to hear bad news at work? Or even good news for that matter, when you have to try to get a hold of your SO at his or her job? LOL



    MamaK225tinjp78Bababatty
  • @sarcasticowl - I completely agree!! If not a home-calling service, waiting until closer to 5 would be appreciated. I totally understand about getting a hold of SO, that part is almost as frustrating as the wait between the transfer and the beta!

  • My beta is in the AM. I’m going to POAS one more time in the morning before I leave for the blood work. We shall see. I’ve not had any of th implantation cramping or bleeding. I feel perfectly normal which worries me. 

    I have a question for you ladies that have had failed FET—I’m just trying to prepare for the rest of the year (if we are BFN tmr anyway). Like what happens next? You just stop all patches pills and PIO? About how long does the period to start before doing another medicated cycle
    Me 30 DH: 31 Married for 7 years
    Dx: MFI
    TTC since 2016
    August 2017: IVF #1 (11 eggs retrieved, 8 mature, 3 fertilized with ICIS, 2 Frozen)
    FET #1:  October 11th -- Beta only 12. CP 
    FET #2: January 12th -- BFP!
    sarcasticowltinjp78Bababatty
  • @tnh0413 Yes, they have you stop all meds and you usually get your period within a week. I think mine came 5 days later. So, not a ton of time to mentally prepare for a second FET if you decide to jump in again. My belly bruises still hadn’t healed from the first time :)

  • Hi ladies. New to this discussion, but not new to infertility. (2 failed IUI’s, 2 failed IVF’s, 1 successful IVF, 1 FET on 10/11...waiting on BETA, which is Monday). My doctor has be on PIO and my knots are horrible. After my husband gives me the shot he massages the area and then I immediately heat. I’ve been trying to heat the next day too, but it’s a lot easier said then done with an 8 month old crawling around. Does anyone have anything I can do to help with these knots? Thanks for the support everyone!!!

  • Welcome @kristylang I also had FET on 10/11 and my beta is also on Monday :)

    is your butt also bruised? What I do is the night before I inject I put ice pack on my butt to reduce the bruises and swelling. And then inject on that side the next morning. And then like you, I use a heat pad.

  • @prudence9-2   I’m sure your counting down the days like I am!  Sticky vibes coming your way!  How are you feeling?

    I do crinone in the morning and PIO at night. I ice before injection and then heat after. I don’t bruise, just get the knots. One knot is about the size of a golf ball, but I keep thinking it will be worth it in the end!

  • @MamaK225 and @cdavies05 Congratulations on being PUPO!!!! Yay!! @kristylang Welcome!




    @sarcasticowl I'm sorry to hear that you are having some anxiety over these things. This is my first try at IVF so I don't have experience to tell but as I was preparing for my FET this month and AF didn't come, I was so overwhelmed with awful feelings. I don't know what I'd do if ever I'd be in your position. But I'm so glad to see support pouring in from other ladies in this thread. Hearing their experience made me feel at ease. Please hang in there ((hugs))



    @tnh0413 I'm praying for you and for your upcoming beta. 

    @prudence9-2  Sending you lots and lots of sticky vibes! 

    Afm, AF came yesterday and I started with my estrogen patches. I'll meet my dr 10/27.

    sarcasticowlMamaK225Bababatty
  • @kristylang wow. That sounds awful! The nurses in my clinic told me it’s not good to ice right before because it stiffens the muscle and more difficult to inject. 

    Also, if you alternate sides you can ice the left side on the night you inject the right side. 

    Are you going to test before Monday?

    @tinjp78 that’s great that AF finally showed up!!! Glad things are starting to move along!!!

  • @tnh0413 I'm so sorry. I'm with you with testing before the beta to prepare, though. I can't imagine waiting for that call at work and not knowing the result. Hang in there, rest and take the weekend to process everything.  <3
