I was on a few months or so ago but haven't been on lately. My previous DC moved to a FB group and its just so much easier to go on there to post. I will try to visit more often.

DH and I are planning round 3 of IVF for this fall/ winter time frame. It will be our first cycle with a FET and I have 12 frozen embryos all of great quality. I have no idea what I am doing though.

Not sure how many eggs to put back in, how the defrost process goes, how the medications/ procedures go. I just feel a tad bit lost in this next attempt.

DH has been deployed the last 3 months, and I just started getting my period regularly after finishing nursing for 14 months. We are both ready to ttc again and praying it works as smoothly as it did the last time. The eggs that are frozen are all from the batch when we had Leiland (currently 15.5 months old).

Anyway just wanted to say hi again. I will try to jump back into posting again and lend support where I can. I feel so out of the loop right now.

Hi Sarah!!! I just started posting again too! I started a thread in TTC by IVF for Sept/Oct if you want to post over there too. Even if you are a little later than that.

Anyways it looks like we are on very similar schedules. My little guy is 18 months old and was an FET baby actually. We did another fresh cycle in March that ended in an early m/c so we will be doing another FET in more than likely October.

FETs are soooo much easier!! My RE uses the Lupron protocol. So he basically gears your body up to O and then uses medication to suppress Ovulation and then tricks your body into thinking it O'd and does the transfer according to that time frame. It is alot less invasive, alot more flexible, and overall WAYYYY easier! As far as thawing and how many to transfer my RE gives a 50-60% survival rate for the thaw...that is exactly what we had last time. 5 of 9 survived last time... One quit developing and was not doing well so we transfered the remaining 4. Out of those 4 we had a 10 cell grade 1, 2 9 cell grade 1s, and an 8 cell grade 2. We were originally pregnant with twins, but one baby was an early loss and never actually developed. Idk if that helps you at all or not! Sorry for rambling.

Thanks Alicia. I met with my re today and he wants to defrost 4 of my 3 day embryos and let them mature to day 5 blasts and transfer then. I started spotting today so we are going to be starting meds this weekend. I'm anxious but excited. I'm pretty sure we will put 2 in though. We are now moving cross country so I'm praying for no losses if this works.

Sounds like you're way more together than you give yourself credit for. As for FET, i've read some IVF stuff recently that actually suggests that those embryos that survive the thawing process are the strongest, and as such have a higher chance of being successful. Without FET, the embryologist has to figure out which are the strongest, and best to implant.

Not sure if this helps at all, but best of luck to you!
