I had the FET on the 15th, so today I am officially 9dpo. I know I shouldn't be testing this early, but I tested this morning and got a BFN.
They put only one embryo in. They thawed one vial of two and one survived. They didn't thaw the second vial of two because, according to the doctor, putting in three would give me about a 15% chance of triplets when we took into consideration the high grade of the embryos (they were all graded as perfect). I was not willing to discard an embryo, nor was I willing to "reduce" the number of fetuses at 11w gestation (or at any other point for that matter). So he wanted to be conservative, and we put one in.
So, in my favor,
--transfer was graded as "easy" (To my surprise this is important as it has a big impact on resulting pregnancy rates, learn something new every day)
--embryo was perfect
--uterine lining was ideal (15mm)
--age of embryos is 32 years
Working against me:
--I tried to keep Katie from nursing more than 10x a day for the two days following transfer. That was really limiting her, too. After 48 hours of struggle where I kept her to about 9x/24 hour period (3 during the day and 6 at night) I gave up and said the heck with it.
--only one embryo transferred
The doctor estimated my chances of getting pregnant this cycle at about 25% (even though he knows I am nursing), which isn't bad if you consider that the average success rates for frozen transfer is 30% and that is almost always with two or more embryos. He followed that up with the statement, "I can't say for sure that you'll get pregnant but I wouldn't be at all surprised if you did."
So, in my head it is kind of 50/50 even though he said 25/75. I guess I am just an optimist. But I don't *think* I will be too disappointed if it doesn't take. . . the only downside is that this is just so much work and money for nothing, when you consider it is costing quite a bit, the shots, the other drugs/schedule, spending a week in a hotel room in CA and the two miserable procedures to make it happen. But oh well. The minutes tick by anyway, regardless of what we choose to do with them.
My blood test is Monday. I'll update after that. Fingers crossed for me!
Oh, and in case anyone is interested, I am on a plan of Estradiol and progesterone, both injections and vaginal 3x/day. I was worried about a decrease in my milk supply, particularly since I stopped taking Fenugreek a little before this cycle started and usually when I don't take that my supply dwindles to nothing. Shockingly I feel like I have MORE milk now! It's really something. . . when the estrogen didn't seem to make a difference, I thought the progesterone would kill my supply, but no. I'm still a milk making machine.
