Well I just thought I would check to see if anyone else is going to be doing this with me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">. We are planning to put one embryo in as we ended up with our Triplets the first time by putting in 3. A blessing ofcourse.<br><br>
Praying for a little one to be born next spring <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Hi!<br><br>
I am scared but yes, planning a FET this summer. I started bcp's to help regulate me before my RE appt. on 6/5! My cycles are not predictable so I am gearing up.<br><br>
My past:<br>
I had years of Clomid, IUI's, injectibles, and IVF. I had two early miscarriages and finally a BFP in 8/03 from a FET. We just celebrated my sons 3rd bday! Now we are going for a FET this summer with the rest of my frozen embies that have been waiting for me!<br><br>
I am scared to death of trying again, but I know it can happen, and really would love to share our journey together!<br><br>
Thinking of you!

Ok here is my history. Tried chlomid for 6 months nothing but bfn's. Got Laperoscopy which found Endometriosis. Went on Lupron for 6 months. ttc for another 6 months with bfn's. Decided to get our tools checked out. DH diagnosed with low sperm count low motility and low morphology<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">: . Decide on IVF with ICSI because insurance covered it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br>
IVF #1 bfp with my almost three year old Triplets.<br><br>
I have four frozen and am planning on putting in one this time around. This will be my frist FET and I am sooooooo scared. I feel voulnerable again like when we were ttc the old fashioned way. I do not want to end up with a bfn. I am trying to think positve and not read any negative result stories on the Fetile Thoughts FET forum where I check in every so often. I will start bcp's in the middle of May on the 3 rd day of AF. Then Lupron patch on day 18 and then I gues that is when they transfer the embie.<br><br>
Do you know how long I will have to wait once I start the Lupron patch?

Hi ladies. Just saying hi. I had a FET planned for April which didn't work out do to administration delays with shipping the embroys<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">: So I picked myself up and dusted off my pants to gear up for a May FET. Then I get a call returned on Friday that the lab may not be able to deal with the embroy's as the original clinic froze them differently <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: Well I have been working on staying positive and letting go of fretting I had a great weekend off but now I feel myself thinking about it again. I expect to hear back tomorrow.<br>
We are doing a natural cycle and plan to put one back as well. I am hoping they can be thawed individually but that hasn't been confirmed yet.<br><br>
I have been going to accupuncture regularly and will be doing a pre and post transfer accupuncture treatment as well.<br><br>
Oh ya and it looks like the end of May for the transfer.

Hi<br><br>
I will be doing FET this June! I have to have Polyps removed this month, first.<br><br>
Here is my history!<br>
March 2006 did IVF fresh did not get pregnant. Then did FET June 2006 got pregnant? Had a very, very premature baby in October! She is 6 months now. I am terrified about going through the process again and having another premature baby or not conceiving at all! But I have faith it will work out some how.

Hi Ladies!<br>
With all of us getting through this toghether, we can get through this! I am so happy to have found you ladies and to share my journey with you. I had made good friends five years ago with my ttc journey #1, and am looking forward to adding a few pg buddies this time around as well.<br><br>
I remember starting out my infertility battles and thinking wow, she's having an iui, she will get pg... and usually it worked as I listened to others celebrate, but never me. I listened to stories of waking up pg out of the blue, and people always asking me when I was going to get pg. I didn't share my infertility with anyone- even to this day. Since my son was a singleton, no one knows except for my very close friend and immediate family- that he was a FET, IVFer. Lately I have been getting frustrated with the constant "when is #2 coming" so I have been angrily telling people I can't get pg. Well, that shuts them up rather quickly! I wish people would really not pry into personal things such as pregnancy!<br><br>
Tripletmom,<br>
As for as the lupron and patches- sorry but I forgot! I am sure it will all come back to me when I get started, but it has been a while. I transferred three and ended up with one adorable son, go figure. I really was hoping for two because it was such a long journey. You must have been in shock to find out three! I would love to hear what life has been like with three little ones. Here's hoping that we can add to our family of miracles!<br><br>
Deena,<br>
Thanks for stopping by- we need cheerleaders!!!!<br><br>
Edja,<br>
Good luck with the removal... keep us posted on your med cycle for your FET!<br><br>
Marlee,<br>
Sorry for the lab delay- that is so disappointing. Shortly after my retrival we had the week long black out in NY (8/03) and I was frantic that my embies that were frozen would be destroyed. The dr. actually slept at the lab to make sure the generators kept everyone toasty cold! I am thinking positive thoughts for your May FET. Have you started meds yet? What is your protocol?<br><br>
Anyway, lets see who is here:<br>
Danielle- Me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> RE appt. 6/5, FET in July, TTC#2. DS 3ys old<br>
Edja- Polyps removed june, FET in July, TTC#2, DD 6 months old preeemie<br>
Tripletmom- TTC#4, triplets almost 3, FET June- transferring 1 this time!<br>
Marlee- April FET postponed, FET May

Life with Triplets. A blast and totally caotic at the same time LOL.<br><br>
It was our first IVF. We had all 8 celled embies. My DH wanted to transfer four but I said three was enough LOL. Well we now know that I probably would have had quads<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: . We thought it was twins and then my darling son Jr. popped up on the screen and it was THREE. The nurse gave me the gloom and doom grill. How I had to reduce, I could die, they could die blah blah blah and ofcourse I said "no way". She said I was so small and probably wouldnt be able to carry to term (34 wks for triplets) well she was wrong LOL. I carried to 34 wks and had three healthy babies who breathed on their own when born and breastfed on day two(they said it would take 2wks). We were out of the hospital in 2 1/2 wks.<br><br>
Now they are almost three and they drive me batty some times<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">: But when I look at them I long for another because they are just that great. Funny and smart, nutty and stuburn. So loud and oh so busy. The loves of my life. Ok tearing up here but this is how I feel. Triplets are the best thing that has ever happened to me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:<br><br>
Now, I would love to experience giving birth to one LOL. I am planning a HBAC. Found my midwife and everything <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> .

Hi Ladies.<br>
I am having a <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">: day. The clinic that I started this process with in Dec. has said they more or less can't do the FET. Arrrrahhh! I feel like I am starting from scratch again. I started calling on Mar. 1 and it took them this long to tell me it isn't going to work out! One option is to fly back to original clinic and have it done. Who knows how long the process will take mind you. But our dd turns two this month and after that you have to pay for a seat. That is an extra $600<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/fever.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Fever">: If we knew we were going to go back to the original clinic we would have made sure it was before dd turned two, obviously. Sorry for the vent. Here I am trying to be so positive about everything but come on I've hit the end of the line. I will start anew tomorrow and start looking forward to our 'vacation'. I am seriously looking at transferring two now. We want to have three children but I am thinking that doing this a third isn't sounding too attractive.

Oh, Marlee, I am so sorry you are going through this. That SUCKS that the clinic took so long to tell you they were going to be useless.<br><br>
I hope you can get a great deal on airfare and work the FET into a nice little family vacation for you all, with wonderful news at the end!

Just a mini vent. Need to get my feelings out rather than bottle them up.<br><br>
I am having a super nervous stomach sick with worry day<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">: . I hate when I start doubting. I start doing the what if's and then I start feeling so scared of getting bfn's. What if it doesnt work, how will I handle it, what if none of the frozen stick. We cant do another IVF, there isnt enought insurance coverage. I guess I am feeling super voulnerable today. I havent even gotten AF yet for the process to begin. I am just so scared today. I hope tomorrow will be a more confident day.<br><br>
Well I did buy some NB fluff. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">: Three NB Nana's Bottoms. Oh they are so little. I was just giddy when I saw them<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> . I think I will take them out and look at them. That will help I am sure.

Hi ladies. I'm not usually on Mothering too much, I tend to hang out on TBW. Anyway, I'm glad to see some others who will be FET'ing in June. We also plan to FET in June. I have an appointment with my OB/GYN tomorrow and with my RE on Weds.<br><br>
We did our first IVF in March 2005 and got a BFP. DS was born at 31 weeks in Sep '05. Stayed 6 weeks in the NICU. He's now a squealing, crazy, happy toddler. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nut.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nut"> lol<br><br>
We had to do IVF because I had too much scarring from prior surgeries (Crohn's disease)... so much so that it was blocking my tubes so much that they couldn't even be removed all the way... so, they're just hanging out detached.<br><br>
We only have 3 embies frozen. 2-8 cell and 1-blast. As far as I know, we'll be putting in two this time, and have the one left for another try if we have to.<br><br>
I'm somewhat anxious to go through the process again... I think I may be more nervous now than I was before. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/grouphug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="grouphug"> to you all... I hope we're all able to get some BFP. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I did an FET in March (my 3rd) and it didn't take. That was the last of my frozen embryos using an egg donor. I'm going to call my doctor tomorrow to start the entire, emotional process over again. After this last time, he told me that there's absolutely nothing wrong with me just questionable egg quality. UGH. So I'm hoping to do another round probably in July and then we'll have frozen eggs to continue if that fresh round doesn't work.<br><br>
Good luck to all you ladies. I have great hope and confidence that it will all work for you. The one thing I can say is that it's much easier with the shots and drugs doing a transfer than a full IVF, at least for me anyway. A little something should be said for that.

Hi ladies.<br>
So nice to see more of you here!<br><br>
My update: My clinic that I was dealing with can access the 'special' medium for $300 dollars. So now they have to order that and STILL get the embroys sent. Is this ever going to happen<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: I will call today and find out a time line. This waiting has been very stressful. My accupuncture yesterday was great and very helpful. I am not making any more plans to go anywhere until those little embies arrive so I will be in hiding until then<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy">
