Right, I've been putting this off, here goes...

1.   Did you have Natural FET or Medicated FET?
Medicated
2.   If Medicated, what meds did you take?
Microgynon to DR, followed by Synarel nasal spray, then Progynova tablets and Crinone gel (yuk!)  ;)
3.   Did you use meds for immune issues?
No
4.   Did you also take extra supplements?
No, only folic acid
5.   How the embryos were frozen?  Slow freeze or vitrification?  How many embryos did you thaw?
10 embies frozen on Day 1. Advised to thaw all 10, 8 survived!
7.   How many Embryos did you Transfer?
Two
8.   Did you go for SET?
That was the initial plan, but they advised us to have two because of our history
9.   What stage embryos did you have transferred?
5-day blastocysts
10.   What grade embryos did you have transfered?
Two top grade
11. What was your lining thickness prior to ET?
17mm
12. Was the result a single baby or twins (or more...)?
Still not sure!! 8wk scan only showed one but they haven't ruled out another hiding in there yet!  ::)
13. How many FETs did you have before getting a BFP?
Just this one... so blessed
14. Did you have any cramps after transfer?
One massive cramp the day after, then just a few 'pulling' sensations down there
15. Did you spot after transfer?
Not at all

I hope posting this helps someone - I really had started to believe it would never happen for us and now can't believe it actually worked! Good luck all current FET-ers!  ^hugme^

    Just thought I would read this to fill me with positivity during my FET 2WW.  This is my 1st FET.  I cannot believe how many of these BFP's are first FETs!  There are only a handful that are not!
