    Questions for the group:

    GTKY:  Did you do anything special for valentines? We are also not really into valentines, plus our anniversary is on Feb 2nd anyway. This year I was traveling for work, so I ended up a friend's house for dinner that night.

    @mack2342 thanks for keeping this board active, I'm really hoping it's your time soon

    @lovemygs hope all of your test results come back well so you can get started
  • @Mack2342 Yes, thank you!

    @mackorori Thank you!  I had forgotten how awful all of the waiting is.  Best of luck to you starting your FET cycle - very exciting!  I'm curious if you did PGS testing on your embryos?  The last time we did IVF I was 8 years younger, did fresh transfers, and PGS wasn't suggested.  I'm fascinated by the whole process.

  • @lovemygs yes, we tested the embryos and I have one normal from two IVF cycles.  * TW* It was an obvious decision for us since at 42 I had two MMC, one known chromosomal and no other fertility issues. We planned to use the embryo last November, but I had a natural PG and another chromosomal loss. Seems like the biggest factor for people using it is age or RPL issues, it varies. I hear the comments about how it's not always accurate (I think because they test only a few cells and what becomes the placental tissue?), but with our history we weren't willing to risk multiple failed FET or losses and after our most recent loss I'm really glad we went this route. I'm sure your RE will go through the options and pros-cons to help you decide what works best for you.  Happy to answer any questions you have.
  • @mackorori We'll definitely be doing it. I'm 39, so I feel like it's the right thing to do at this age. I do have one other question: Did your RE want you to wait a cycle between ER and FET, or could you begin BCP when you got your first period after ER?

    GTKY:  Did you do anything special for valentines? DH and I took a mini trip a couple hours north, relaxed, tried out some breweries, and got new tattoos. ❤️
  • @lovemygs we were going to wait a few months for personal reasons, but in talking about next steps with the nurse after ER it seemed like they would let you start BCP with the first period after ER if you wanted to get started, but I don't know for sure.
  • @mackorori Gotcha.  Thanks again for your responses!
