    Just spotting. Doctor told us it was normal. But it's hard not to worry. Trying to stay positive. Had bw this morning, just waiting for the results. And congratulations!

    Hi, everyone. I will be doing an FET sometime in the near future. Basically my eggs were not good at all, we used a donor. And today we just got the results that only one of five embryos was PGS normal. With 20 eggs retrieved, only one good one. We were crushed. Devastated. 

    Long story short, $40,000 later we have ONE shot at this. One. I have endometriosis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, etc, not the healthiest body. I am really, really nervous about having one shot at this. I cant afford to do another donor cycle. 

    I would really appreciate any advice on how to prepare for an FET, all the things that should be done etc. He did the xray of the fallopian tubes/uterus and that was normal. My lining in general has been good. He wants to do the saline sono about two months before we do the transfer, I thought that it should be done closer?

    other than estrogen, progesterone, are there other meds people have used? And lastly, are there any immunology tests anyone has done prior to this? My immune system and health has not been good, but no one finds much except “fibromyalgia”. 

    Sorry for all the questions. I am just very, very nervous. Thanks in advance. 
  • @jolo1241 Congrats on beta, great numbers!!

    AFM My RE had a change of plans and I'm at the office now for a fresh 2day transfer. I didn't know that anyone transferred on day 2, but they are booked and because of my age its actually recommended. I don't know what to expect because last update I had yesterday was I had 1 good fertilized egg,  1 not so hot fertilized egg, and 2 pending fertilization.

    In addition to the regular meds, my RE had me on baby aspirin, DHEA, CoQ10, and a medrol (prednisone) dose pak during the transfer. The medrol pak is largely done to prevent inflammation and immune issues from blocking implantation. You might also want to try some massage and acupuncture. I just had a mock transfer before the actual transfer, no new saline sono or anything (I had that done when we first started w/ the clinic).

    Prednisone here too. Told it would suppress the immune system from keeping the embryo from implanting. Just for a few days though. First ultrasound tmrw!

    Hi ladies...

    I hope everyone is doing well. I wanted to give you all an update.

    ** Miscarriage 

    Today I went for my 8 week us, the doctor could not find the heart beat. I'm scheduled for a D&C on Thursday. The week prior everything looked ok, I had some brown spot and it went away the next day, however I went to the doctor, my RE did an us and said he had no concerns the HB was 129 and today no heart beat. We are completely devastated.
