I understand the only having one to thaw out. That's my worry. I only have one frostie and I'm worried about it making it through thawing out but there's nothing I can do about it so I'm trying not to worry about it; however, I'm not doing real well with that. I think I'll feel better after my appointment w/ RE on 11/24.leorira11 wrote:sorry to drag up a topic that seems to have FLOWN by - but about FETs and the fear of having only one frozen...
I have 2 blasts frozen. Since I lost my twins at 22 weeks last year, we had been doing single embryo transfers. But since we had 4 frozen 3de from BEFORE the twin pregnancy frozen in PAIRS, we didn't know what we wanted to do with those. For our first FET, the dr recommended thawing a pair, growing to blast and transferring the better one. So that's what we did. I HATED it. I hated discarding an embryo that was still growing, but not good enough to re-freeze. I hated the days the embryos were growing in the lab and Ididn't know if EITHER would make it or I'd even get to trasnfer. So the second FET, we transferred both 3de.... both FETs were BFN.
So when we did fresh again this summer, we grew all our embryos to blasts. We transferred one (missed miscarriage at 8 week) and froze 2 - individually.
Now I want to transfer BOTH blasts. My doctor thinks I'm crazy to risk twins again. There are some major considerations. At this point (a year after losing my twins, 3 years TTC, 2 years of back-to-back-to-back IVF) I'm willing to risk twins over risking not getting pregnant. Also, one of my BIGGEST fears is to do an FET with 1 frostie and not have anything to transfer after defrosting.
I'm actually amazed that y'all are being allowed to transfer more than 2 embryos. Weird that I keep being told that I'm being extreme when transfer 2. Different culture I guess....
We have until transfer day to decide how many to transfer. We are both leaning towards 2, even though the dr is saying 1 (in the past, I've wanted 2 and both my husband and the dr pushed for 1. Now even my very conservative husband is saying 2).
Hopefully, we'll be getting this (exceedingly stressful!) show on the road soon. Tomorrow is my last dose of progesterone - COME ON AF! Hopefully I'll get my period Sunday or Monday and start my FET meds on CD1!
All of you going crazy in the 2ww or stimming parts - just remember how jealous us waiting are! Of course, y'all are in hell.... but there are several of us DYING to join you there!
annashope - I really really hope that's a realy BFP. I agree with Sonya - post pics!
I'm here! Just haven't had much time to post anything. We had the Marine Corps birthday ball last evening and today I had my ultrasound. The RE moved it from the 15th. I'm so glad I went today because we saw the little heartbeat!!!!!DandMe wrote:Anyone heard from Freckles lately? And I haven't seen Tammy today, either... Ladies? Are you about?
Oh hon I am so happy that you got to see the heartbeat! You've moved into an entire new area of pregnancy and should be over the moon. What is your next step with the obgyn? Getting an appointment and just being normally old boring pregnant? Does that actually happen to people? LOL Big Hugs... hope that you keep us posted --- I want to keep in touch all the way through!FrecklesDC wrote:I'm here! Just haven't had much time to post anything.

It was beating away at a very rapid rate which the RE said was great! I'm now released to an OBGYN!
Of course, I still have some critical weeks left but I have hurdled some obstacles and I am truly blessed. I thank all of you for your support and love during this time.
How are you, Sonya?
Hey great news on your FET!!! Your babies are most likely very happy to be warm and growing again. POAS is not an easy thing - you gotta be prepared for the downs if you want the possible ups... myself... I still pee on the occasional IC just for the sheer thrill of it. If you do want to POAS, it's always best to test out your trigger... I personally start testing on 7dpo - 9 days after the trigger. I know there's a chance my trigger will still be there, and it's very unlikely (impossible?) to get a bfp at 7dpo. so any line should be counted as trigger. Test the next day and see how that is - it's normally a stark BFN. After that, if the line comes back, you're pregnant, if it doesn't - you keep testing until your beta and don't take and bfn's too seriously as we all metabolize differently and you can't compare yourself to others, or even to other previous pregnancies.jennieswa wrote:Hi Everyone. I am home from the FET. All went well. We transferred 2...Now we wait. I wil have my beta on 11/22....
Last time I did not POAS...but this time I'm not so sure what I will do...If I do decide to POAS- when can I do that?
woohoo! we really are twins, lol! i know that others have said that they don't go in for the trigger b/w. i think it's just a preference that some re's have. i wouldn't worry about it! will you be having a 3dt or a 5dt?Cheri76 wrote:Hi all!!
LIke others have said, if you miss a day you're so far behind on this board.
Ester - YAY twin!! Your numbers are fabulous!!! Thinking great thoughts for you for an easy, retrieval and awesome fertilization!!!
AFM - Trigger tonight and ER on Saturday at 8 AM. I have about 18 follicles - not sure how many of them are mature. I guess I will find out in a couple of days!!! I have never heard of the trigger beta/hpt test. Should I be asking for it?
how many total eggs did they get again? could it be ohss? i know i was told to watch for it this cycle.Lauren wrote:These pains Im having are very uncomfortable....lower back and then I feel sore again like after ER..like ovaries and uterus..so weird! only comfortable when I lay in one position on the couch..otherwise walking around is hard sometimes...should I be worried? seriously could something be wrong?
