Hi Ladies,

I haven't posted on the boards for a while but I have been stopping by from time to time to see how everyone is doing.


I am looking forward to hopefully going through this FET with you girls! I am in the middle of another FET (supposed to transfer on Monday the 4th) but this morning they found a cyst on my endometrial lining during my ultrasound. I am supposed to start the dreaded progesterone in oil injections on Wednesday and then come back in on Friday for another ultrasound. They are hoping the cyst will just go away...if it doesn't they will cancel my cycle.


Do either of you have dates yet?

hi Liyana! please don't apologize! i know how hectic life can be. best wishes for your upcoming FET. i pray yours works this time! Lord knows you need it


Kasey- hi there! i'm sorry to hear about the cyst. i pray that it goes away in time so you can have your scheduled transfer. ugggh those PIO injections, i wish they weren't so painful. can't wait to hear how your US goes.


AFM-i'm supposed to start my meds 7-31 tentative ER 8-22. my donor emailed this morning & might be backing out. i don't know what to do now. i'm lost & scared. i emailed my clinic & they said we might loose 3000 because they held a spot for us. DH & i are scrabbling trying to figure it out. i pray he still wants to help us.


sending hugs!

Hi ladies. I have been active on the TTCMA board but have been lurking on the IVF boards too, more so lately. I thought I'd say hi as I will probably be around a bit more. My hubs and I are planning an IVF in October, so while this group is a liiitle early, I thought I would stick around a bit more and learn from all of you! I am super nervous about IVF, but my hubs and I are ready to start our family and so e are excited as well.

Good luck to all if you ladies!!

I will be having a FET in the middle of August (based upon my calculations - August 16/17). We are doing a natural FET cycle, so my first day of monitoring will be August 4th! This is the first time we are transferring any embryos, so I am excited and nervous all in one!

Good luck everyone and look forward to being in touch.

April....thank you!!! first beta is aug 6. I wish id get some signs or something. These last days go horribly slow. Ill probably start home preg test tomorrow even though i know its way too early. If i see 2 lines im sure its from hcg shot but at least it will be 2 lines. Havent seen 2 lines for years. If not theres still hope....

BFN this morning...im torn. You'd think a little bit of the hcg shot would be in there to see a mild positive but no. Even if it was a fake line, it's been a long time since I have seen 2 lines. I know it hasn't even been 72 hours yet since the transfer but not feeling it. I have some mild cramping going on.


*sigh* trying to stay positive :/

Thank you ladies! Praying for BFPs for all of us!

April-any more news from your donor? Praying everything stays on schedule!


Liyana-September will be here so soon


Moonjewels-hoping the mild cramping is implantation!!! Praying next week brings good news!


Mrs ceebee and jj-good luck on your first cycles! Any questions you have along the way feel free to ask. The ladies on these boards are so helpful and supportive.


The PIO injections start today...dreading it but hoping it makes the cyst disappear.

Just to help you stay positive...we transferred two 5 days blasts. I felt nothing other than occasional cramps the first 2 days. And I do mean absolutely nothing. I was 100% sure it didn't work. At 3dp5dt I tested just to make sure hcg was gone and wouldn't give me false hope. It was. At 5dp5dt we got a faint BFP. I had a doctor appointment to go over my labs from the previous week (cholesterol, A1C, etc). I told him about the faint (and by faint I mean it was a squinter) line. He ran a blood test and called back that afternoon. Beta was 28. Official beta was one week later at 12dp5dt. It was 578. The lines started getting dark about 7dp5dt. Keep in kind, we are having twins so we did show up on tests a little quicker. I never did have any symptoms. I eventually only became slightly more tired than normal. No morning sickness. So don't count yourself out because of not feeling anything. This huge belly is proof you don't have to have symptoms for it to have worked! Praying you see two lines soon!!

Moon- i'm sorry you got a BFP. I know the days must be going by so slow for you. maybe retest again 6 days after transfer. don't loose hope . sending sticky vibes & prayers your way


Kasey- how did the PIO shot go? i'm a baby when it comes to pain, I hope it's less painful & more tolerable for you! I pray your cyst is gone by the next monitoring. when is your next appt?


afm- my clinic is stressing me out! i almost want to request if we can do this in sept. im just feeling uneasy about the time line. they also added a few requirements that made me angry. they want the ID & the credentials of the doctor that performs his physical. i honestly cant' ask my donor to ask the doc for a copy of his photo ID. they also want him to sign his consents infront of a lawyer. who's got money for a lawyer? & lastly, the want to talk to my donor 3am his time. i guess my doc only does phone calls in the morning & they can' ask him to make the call in the afternoon. i cried, but i'm feeling ok now. i'm going to reach out to my clinic tomorrow.


sorry to be a Debbie downer.


sending hugs!

That looks positive to me. I forget, how many days past transfer are you? As I said, our first BFP was a squinter at 5dp5dt and we're having twins. If you tested the other day with no lines then it shouldn't be leftover hcg. Here's what ours looked like at day 5...
It's really hard to see even the faint line on the middle test through a picture but it's there. Shows up better on the big cheapie test (which came from Dollar Tree)

Here's the night of 5dp5dt and the morning of 6dp5dt. And they only got darker as the days went on.
