Hi ladies! I figured I would start this group early since it's almost November and people may be starting to plan for December/January procedures. Here we go with a new thread for ladies going through IVF and FET in over Dec and Jan! Hoping my snow babies come out to play and stick around in November, but in case they're not ready, bring on Dec/Jan! Welcome ladies!!!!!!

Thanks for creating this new tread Hoping for baby. I just found out today my 1st IVF failed. I had I feeling it would (i know that sounds negative) since my progesterone was high before our ER, but wanted to transfer anyways. We look at IVF as a game of chances and if we were to freeze them all the five we had not all would survive anyways. I hope it sounds like I'm being more realistic than negative. Anyways, we did a 2 day transfer with 2/2 cell embryos. I give myself one day to cry and then I pick myself up and look forward to the future!

In talking with my dr today, after my cycle starts I will go in for a baseline u/s and if my ovaries look good, we can hopefully do FET early December. Fingers crossed! Baby dust to everyone!!

AJP - I am so sorry to hear about your first IVF I know exactly what you're feeling... Mine failed too and I felt like everyone but me was having success. We took nearly 2 years off and are going for our FET now! We will be close to each other and starlit I know we are also close!!!! Hoping for good luck for everyone. Where are you both from? I am in PA going through all if this at a clinic in NJ.

It's horrible waiting to start! Ahhhhh. Patience is sooooo hard isn't it? We have 8 frozen. 6 frozen immediately on day 1 and 2 frozen at later stages (5 & 6 cells). I am debating what to do. Unsure what they will want me to do anyway with thawing. Will they want me to thaw all 6 that were fertilized and immediately frozen? All 8 ? Just a few? Who knows - so much guessing!

Morning ladies!

I got AF on Sunday so I have an appointment tomorrow with the Dr. to see how my ovaries look. Fingers crossed they have gone back down to normal size and no cysts.

Hoping, I frozen my 3 on day two at two cell. So I am wondering too if we will thaw them and grow them out or just do the transfer. Did your dr give you any indication?

Well, I guess I am joining you ladies here. Just waiting for AF to show. Then I will call the dr to start the process for our first IVF. Still seems so surreal. Our plan is to get all the testing out of the way in November for a IVF cycle in December. Hopefully I will get the best Christmas present ever this year...

Starlit... I'm not familiar with the medication Provera. For my IVF we used follistim and menopur. AJP, nope, no birth control (or lupron). My protocol was AF, day 2 u/s and blood... Day 14 of period follow up u/s and blood then start injectable progesterone then transfer in 3-4 days. I'm doing a frozen embryo cycle. Do you have your protocol?

Hi everyone!! This will be our first time ever with IVF. We will be starting birth control tomorrow which I am so excited for lol and starting all of the procedures in December. We are doing IVF assisted with ICSI. I'm so new to this world but the support you ladies give is beyond amazing. I personally never knew anyone that had to go through this so you ladies are a shoulder to lean and cry on! We are very excited!!

Welcome McLovin! We're here for you!

Hoping- Im doing a frozen cycle this time too. My RE has me doing BC pills for one week and then Estrace for 10 days then transfer. I should get my calendar today with exact dates. What is your protocol?
How many embryos are you going to transfer?

Hi AJP! I'm on the estrace protocol. It's no BCPs and 14 days of estrace (at least) and 4 days of progesterone. We have 8 frozen and will be transferring 2 three-day embryos. How about you?
