post #101 of 767

tracy, just waiting for my post transfer ultrasound appointment on April 23. Feeling symptoms of pregnancy and trying to continue to make forward movement.

Sourire- tomorrow is the day, right?? Are you feeling any better (health wise)? It sounds like you're in a really good place after the Lupron suppression. I started listening to the tracks from C+B but I'm doing a natural cycle transfer so I'm unsure what to listen to since I'm not getting suppressed or boosting with estrogen... Are they really specific in that way? The suppression one didn't seem to matter.

Tracy- so you will have to drink water twice for transfers... I hated that part! They don't think the catheter the second time could affect the day 3 embryos they already put back? So is your first transfer the 20th? I'm so jealous you ate both already to transfer!

X- those sound like decent follicles for IVF, they generally want 3 over 18 for retrieval so you've got time to let the others catch up! Just a late start it seems. Are you feeling good?

AFM- day 13 still not a single sign of O. Usually I get 4 days of EWCM before O so it's looking like a late one. I'm disappointed because that stretches out the start of my FET and means its possible my O next month will be late too. Today I'm feeling emotional, another sign my hormones are still wonky. I have been feeling very well connected internally. I'm doing a lot of meditation/yoga/relaxation things. I had a reflexology foot massage last night & plan on doing 2 or 3 after my next AF to get good blood flow up to my uterus.

Xerxella - at my clinic they want to see 1-4 follicles that are 14mm or more on the day of the ovulation trigger. Above 4 they will cancel the cycle. They will trigger when the largest follicle reaches 18mm. The ones with the best chance of resulting in mature eggs are those that are 16mm+ on trigger day, though there is still a chance for the 14-15mm ones. I once voluntarily cancelled an IUI cycle myself because I had 3 follicles that were 16mm + and 2 that were at 13mm and I didn't feel comfortable with the risk of multiples after my doctors had explained everything to me.

tracy - yep my transfer is tomorrow! I also have both 5 day and 3 day embryos frozen. Tomorrow will be the equivalent of 5dpo, but my RE said that if my one remaining blast doesn't survive the defrosting they will transfer a 3-day instead. I'm only transferring 1 due to the laws here.

toothfairy - yes I'm feeling better! I don't know if it's because I finally managed to get some sleep on Saturday night (though Sunday night my insomnia was back) or because I started taking an antibiotic as part of my FET meds on Saturday, but on Sunday I was feeling soooooooo much better. I haven't been doing as much meditation this cycle because I don't feel like doing the same meditations over and over and I'm trying to just let go of the outcome. I think the meditations would work equally well if you aren't on estrogen, I don't remember them focusing on the estrogen specifically.

I never thought of reflexology. What a great idea for the blood flow!

Thinking of you today Sourire!
post #108 of 767
I'm waiting for the clinic to call to tell me what time my transfer is. It depends on how the defrosting goes.
post #109 of 767
Ok I just got the call.

My embryo survived defrosting!!!!! I'm very excited by that because last time the first one did not survive.

My transfer is at 3:15pm.
post #110 of 767
Sourire - YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Are they only defrosting one? (Sorry if I missed that.) Very exciting!!!!! Come on 3:15! goodvibes.gifbelly.gif

tf - I'm sorry your cycle is delayed. Maybe it's just a quiet ovulation? Do you ever have ovulation without a ton of EWCM? 4 days of EWCM is pretty impressive! LOL My doc won't do a retireval for anything less than 6 follicles, so it'll be IUI for me. I'm getting ready to move to a new doc. This one seems to be too afraid to do anything and seems to not know how to handle DOR-ish problems.

lilac - April 23rd seems like a long way away. You'll be 6 weeks then?

Tracy - You're lucky to have so many frosties! So they froze them at different ages? 3 day-ers and 5 day-ers? Can I ask why they did that?
post #111 of 767

good luck sourire...I don't know when 3:15 is...how many hours are you ahead of Oregon? LOL I will look it up.

 

Xerxella- I think that the 5 day blasts were developing slower but developing/multiplying and the clinic froze them at 5 day....I most of my embryos were embryos. Thanks for asking.

Toothfairy I forgot to answer your question. My RE says not the catheter will not affect anything and the little research I have done.

 

ETA

Afm. Last lupron injection today!! yay, and the dreaded progesterone injections start Wednesday....not so yay

post #112 of 767
Xerxella - yes we are transferring a single blast. Due to the laws here we can't transfer more than that. Changing RE's sounds like a really good decision.

Tracy - I'm on eastern time so I'm probably 3 hours ahead. How often do you do the Lupron injections? Mine were once a month. As for keeping distracted well I'll be going to work as usual and reading some good books.
post #113 of 767

sourire~ yes I figured it was 3 hours. I do Lupron injections daily but today is the last one. I wished I had pushed for Progesterone patches or inserts. Books sound like a good idea!!!

You're drinking your water & getting ready to head in now!! Thinking of you!!
post #115 of 767
Sourire, I am praying that your transfer is happening quickly and perfectly!

xerxella, I will be 5 weeks 5 days on April 23. I tried to reschedule but nurse was not allowing me to do that. I guess it will be not much to see except if it is one or 2 babies growing.
post #116 of 767

sourire...thinking of you too!!!!!!!!!!!please come back with details on how you are feeling!

post #117 of 767
Transfer is now done!

They were running a bit behind schedule so it ended up being around 4 pm.

I'm so proud of myself, I managed to drink the perfect amount of water so my bladder was full enough for the transfer but I wasn't dying to go pee. That perfect amount was 1/2 a bottle of water. Last time I drank a whole bottle and it was torture.

So my blast was a 2BB right before they froze it but guess what... After defrosting it started growing again and it had reached 4AA by the time of transfer, which is the absolute highest grade my clinic has. When we saw it on the screen it was clearly hatching. I had a perfect embryo!!!!!

I gotta admit I wasn't at all excited about this cycle but ever since I heard about my perfect embryo I'm now SUPER excited!
post #118 of 767

sourire, I am so glad to hear that your perfect embryo is inside safely and I hope that it is digging in for the 9 month haul!

post #119 of 767

Congrats Sourire!! I will be stalking you :)
