Christine I am so sorry for your loss. It must be a veryt difficult time for you and your family at the moment. But as you say he is at peace now and not in any pain. Best of luck with your scan on Thursday.

Vicky glad ET went ok. Take care in the next 2ww.

Daly when is your ET????? All the best for your 2ww.

Hi to everyone else thank you all for your supportive messages they mean a lot to me. I started to bleed yesterday so it should be all over very soon. I have also lost the plot and have started to d/r today for another medicated FET. So should have my last ever ET in about three weeks.

Susan - ET in 3 weeks!! Wow that will be so soon! I'm glad your body is at least moving things along and not dragging it out. How many tot-cycles do you have to transfer? I had ET on Fri last week. Had mild cramping on Sunday all day. I felt a twinge of hope for the first time when I had kindof like pre-AF cramps and sore boobs on/off starting yesterday. I am on progesteron IM though.....so can't count on the sx too much. But, I had none last time. So my head goes dizzy with the what ifs. We'll see. NOne to freeze with my abismal quality, so another cycle means the whole stimming process. UGH. I test on June 26th!!
Sending you tons of babydust for your upcoming cycle!!

How are you all?
Sorry to hear about your m/c Susan. My prayers are with you.

Daly- how is your 2ww going? How is your new puppy?

Christine- Sorry to hear about your dad.

I have been hanging in there. In 3 weeks we are supposed to do IVF again. I am undecided if I should do fresh or FET. I did have a litter of dachshund puppies the week I miscarried. She had 5. They are a month old already. Time goes by fast.

How is everyone else?

Donna I'm so glad to hear from you! I've been thinking about you and didn['t realize how quickly you'll be cycling again! We are a tenatious group aren't we! I'm sending you tons of babydust. Tomorrow I get my [progesterone level and that will be a strong hint as to whether I'm pregnant or not. Fingers crossed! Winnie is absolutely darling. It's been wonderful having a new life in the house. We are thrilled. He's almost 3 pounds and already bosses around his 15 pound brother! I bet your dauschounds are the cutest! Poor Winnie would love another puppy to play with!

Christine - I"m sending you prayers during this difficult time. Much love to you and your family. Good luck wiht tomorrows scan! Did you have much cramping early on?

Susan - I hope your doing well. You'll be cycling close with Donna I think!

Charlie - How are you doing? I hope the lupron is being kind! When's your halfway mark for downregging?

Hi Ladies,

Just a quick note to say thanks so much for your support! My dad was buried yesterday and the last few days have been very hard. All in all it went very well. He was buried with military honors which was very touching. Our loss is great but we know time will heal things some.

We had our First Trimester Screening Ultrasound on Thursday. It went very well. The blood test and scan gave us great results. The ultrasound tech said it would be too soon to determine the sex. So we have to wait until Aug 2nd for our Level 2 scan at 18 weeks to find out.

I wish you all well and will try to chat and address personals soon. Just have to get some things settled and feeling better. Take Care Ladies!

Love,
Christine

HI Daly,
How was your progesterone level?

Can Someone tell me how long a FET Cycle takes compared to the short flare protocol for a fresh cycle?
Thanks,

Donna

Hi ladies,

Christine - I'm so gald to hear how honored your father's memory was at his funeral. It is so wonderful to have lived such beautiful life. I know your loss is incredible.
I'm excited to hear the sex of your baby! I can't believe you're already 12 wks. Congratulations!

Donna - I'll get my next prog test tomorrow and the hcg test!! If my head ache is any indication, it is high. My last level was 18.5. They want it at 20 so they increased my shots to 1 1/2. I'm really hoping that keeps things good. Your FET should take around a couple weeks to get your lining ready. Did you meet with your RE?

Charlie - HOw are you doing?

I finally have some good news. I had a positive hpt on Friday which is 7 d post 3 dt! My clinic said that's excelent and the lines have gotten alot darker each day. So they moved my bt up to Mon. Keep all fingers crossed! I'm sending babydust to everyone!

Hi guys,

I have an official bfp with an hcg of 105. They wanted it to be over 50 tomorrow, so this is a good level for a day early :D Also, my progesterone has shot up to 44 and estrogen is 515. I think this is why I've had a headache for the past 2 days. That's OK. I'll take any side effects coming to me :) Now it's waiting to see if the little guy doubles good.

Donna - I'm so glad you're doing the IM shots this next time. Sending you tons of sticky dust.

Huge hello to everyone else!!! Donna and Susan, you're FETs are so close. You'll be cycle buddies again. The time will fly by. I'm sending huge enormous lods of babydust to you both.

Daly - OMG!!!!! I am so pleased for you! The tears are rolling! Congratulations to you and DH!!!!

Donna - good to hear from you! When I did my FET, I was on BCP's for 10 days then I had AF, then I started taking estrogen had FET 12 days later I think (can't really remember) then was on the dreaded 2ww! I've got everything crossed for you.

Christine - I'm so sorry to hear about your Father, I can't imagine how hard it has been for you.
Congratulations on your scan - I can't wait to hear about the sex of your little one!

Susan - keeping everything crossed for your FET too!

Vicky77 - how are you holding up?? Thinking about you!

As for me - I went for my second down regging injection yesterday - so I guess that was my half way point, I go for my baseline scan and bloods on 30th July. I have hot flushes, but other than that - I can't grumble (although DH may disagree!)

Hugs to everyone

FET CYCLE

Post by doddo72 » Tue Jun 26, 2007 4:44 pm

Hi,
I start Lupron tonight to start the FET cycle. I have been on BC pills since I miscarried. I take them for one more week. I am on Lupron until the end of July and then I have the ET sometime during the last few days of July.

Any one else have the same type of FET Cycle?

:D
