So today was day 12 of my second FET-cycle attempt. Once again, it's cancelled.

Oh boy Mommyoneday :( I know you must be very frustrated at this point. Did they do anything different this time? I had a friend with this same problem and they let her go naturally and allowed her body to build the lining on its own time. I'll see if I can find out anymore details for you. Are you going to do another cycle soon? Or do you have to wait for work? Hang in there. Prayers will be sent your way. :)

Hi Hope, Thanks for your message. I really appreciate the support. Ya, it's not so fun. But I am going to just keep on trying until it works.
I would really appreciate it if you could find out more details. My doctor did change the protocol for this cycle, but it clearly didn't help. She can't let me go naturally, because I don't ovulate on my own so I don't grow any lining on my own either :-/.
How's your work situation going now?

Hi Mommyoneday, I looked into it and it turns out your cases seems different. She would ovulate all the time through the birth control and was regular so going natural was a good option for her. She swears by acupuncture. It seems to have a lot of good information.

Hi All,

mommyoneday, I am SO sorry. Sending you lots of warm hugs and blessings on your next cycle. It will come! Have you heard about eating pineapple? I don't know if it helps build the lining or not, but I ate some before my transfer and all went well. I would stand on my head for a week if it were proven affective.

We transferred one 5 day blast grade AC on Monday 2/24. Out of 8 embies we did PGD on, he was the only genetically normal male. 4 were abnormal, and 3 were female, all AA. My husband has 4 daughters so we really want a little boy, but I would feel incredibly blessed just to get a BFP!!

I am scheduled for my beta Tuesday, March 4th- I guess they can do it sooner since mine was a 5 day blast. This waiting is the most torturous thing in the world. I wake up every morning not knowing whether to laugh or cry! Yesterday I jst cried for about an hour- I just want to feel something. I have no symptoms. I have some cramping like AF is knocking on my door, but nothing else. I don' 'feel' pregnant like a lot of moms say they do either. I, like many am studying every twinge, every smell, every taste, grasping for something concrete.

This morning I picked up 2 HPT- I can either take them and put myself out of my misery and have a handle on the outcome for Tuesday, giving me time to accept the truth, or wait it out. Both sound like more torture. Haha. I think I'll POAS tomorrow am.

I wish all of you beautiful mommies to be lots of baby dust and blessings on your cycles. Thankful to have a place to write down my thoughts. Xoxx

Hi Kristin, A good quality 5-day embryo is fantastic! I know it must be crazy stressful just waiting and not knowing, but just breathe and allow yourself to relax until Tuesday. You have been through so much. Also, you don't need to "feel" pregnant this early to be pregnant. Most women don't "feel" pregnant until long after their first missed period. You'll have plenty of time for morning sickness later ;).
Good luck and keep us posted!

BFN. I POAS day 5p5t and day 6p6dt and also saw BFNs...I'll write more later but I don't think my husband is destined to have a baby boy. He has 4 girls, and this was our only male embryo. . . Glad to have this forum. Baby dust to all.

Thanks, Mommyoneday! We will try again but I need a break to catch up financially a bit. We have 4 frozen, untested, 2 female Aa frozen. The 4 frozen are in groups of 2 so we would have to transfer 2. So much to think about. I am not trying again until July. I need to work and save up for my next transfer. When will you try again?

Kristin- I'm so sorry to hear that :( Relax and pamper yourself for a little while. You deserve it after the ivf roller coaster ride. I'm glad you have good embryos waiting and ready to go when you are. I'm hoping to start again very soon. Just trying to get work in order so I have as little stress as possible and can focus on me. Keep you all posted.

Kristin - I'm so glad you have so many embryos waiting and ready for you. I definitely understand the financial strain. I thought this process would be done a few months ago already (and that was already a huge stretch!). Now it just feels like a bottomless pit. I'm in the process of another FET cycle. My parents have been helping us with it financially and I'm going to keep on trying until, at the very least, I get to transfer. My husband thinks it'll work this month and I'm really hoping he's right.

Hope - I'm glad you are able to focus on your work again and mentally/financially prepare yourself to start again.

Hopeful - How was your vacation? :)

Mommyoneday, cancelled why??? Are they changing their protocol each time? What's the issue? I'm so sorry. That really sucks, you must be so bummed. Are they giving you an explanation/solution?

Try to stay hopeful!!

We had our WTF appt. a couple weeks ago, after vacation. It sucked, basically, the embryos were slow in growth, they were 10 and 12 cells on day 4 instead of being morulas (or whatever that word is). I didn't even know this at the time! I thought they were normal. The plan was to transfer blasts, but I guess when they slowed in growth, they did it at 4 days. Of course I was oblivious to this and thought we did blasts. She said my lining, levels, everything else looked good. I'm worried that our other 5 frosties are also compromised in quality. This could be because my retrieval was 3 days because my levels were over 10,000 and we almost cancelled the entire thing back in Dec. But miraculously, my levels went down so we went ahead with the numbers because the follicles still looked good. I'm hoping we just thawed the 6 worse looking embryos and the 5 frozen ones are the best ones, but that's probably not true. The quality was probably compromised because of my retrieval. We are trying clomid this month. It really doesn't help me much, but it's only $10. Another FET would cost around $4500 and I'm not ready for that yet.

I'm trying really hard to stay hopeful, but it's freaking hard. I had lunch with a good friend today, who of course has the cutest 6-month old baby girl in the world! I'm so happy for her and so jealous at the same time because I started trying 3 months before she did. But oh well. At least I got to hold a baby today.

What are your next plans??

Mommyoneday- sorry to hear about your cancelled FET? Why do they cancel it? I have my first FET with donor eggs in April but didnt know that FET could be cancelled? Due to what? Please let me know when you have a chance.

To everybody else- HI! I am new to the forum, trying to catch up on some reading and looking for buddies for FET cycle in April.
