Test on the 7th

Hi, ladies :) I was crushed after my last cycle didn't work and haven't been on the boards since. Sorry! Yet, here I am in the 2ww of yet another cycle :? :? One minute I have convinced myself that it worked and the next I am so sure that it didn't. Right now I am having a positive moment, but it's ...

Thanks 2nd timer for the info. I am not sure if a natural FET cycle would be an option for me or not. I am still waiting to hear about the results from this cycle. Then we only have one more frozen round left, then we are out of embryos (2 frozen blasties waiting) and out of money! So, I just was cu...

I am sure the amount of embryos trasferred effects the success rate. Where I go they usually put in one more embryo than they would for a fresh cycle.

Just to further back up what Kelly said...about how different the length of the cycle is for everyone, I usually don't get my AF until 5-7 days after I stop the progesterone (after hearing BFN)

I am in the 2ww of my second FET cycle. Have all of you done natural cycles without meds? My cycle is quite involved with lupron shots for suppression, estradiol pills to building the lining, and progesterone pills and shots once the transfer takes place. Just curious as we only have one attempt lef...

There are two different processes for FETs. One is completely natural without meds, where they implant the frozen embryos when the timing is right. Then there is what I just did where basically it is just like a normal round, just skip the growing and harvesting of eggs portion. This included Lupron...

This is my second FET transfer. The first transfer failed, but I am keeping my fingers crossed for this one. I can tell you that the FET success rates are different for each clinic. I go to the University of Pennsylvania and the success rates are nearly the same as for a fresh cycle, which is 57%. I...

I'm hoping you ladies that have already given birth pop in to read this. I have been having a lot of contractions...some pretty uncomfortable. Will I know when the "real" contractions start and when I need to start timing them?
