    1.   Did you have Natural FET or Medicated FET?
    Natural
    2.   If Medicated, what meds did you take?
    N/A.  No meds at all for my natural cycle - not even progesterone support.
    3.   Did you use meds for immune issues?
    No
    4.   Did you also take extra supplements?
    Yes - pregnacare conception and omega 3
    5.   How the embryos were frozen?  Slow freeze or vitrification?
    6 embies - vitrification
    6.   How embryos did you thaw?
    2
    7.   How many Embryos did you Transfer?
    2
    8.   Did you go for SET?
    No - SET didn't work on my fresh cycle, and the consultant said that there was some evidence that two embryos help each other to implant, even if only one continues to a viable pregnancy.  So I opted for 2, though was told it was entirely up to me.
    9.   What stage embryos did you have transferred?
    5-day blastocysts
    10.   What grade embryo's did you have transfered?
    They were about 4aa before the freeze (5 is most developed at my clinic).  I was told that they had thawed really well and done exactly what they were expected in the hours between the thaw and the transfer.
    11. What was your lining thickness prior to ET?
    Not sure.  I only had one lining scan on day 12 of my cycle (I had LH surge on day 14 and the transfer was on day 21)
    12. Was the result a single baby or twins (or more...)?
    Too soon to say - I just hope it/they stick!
    13. How many FETs did you have before getting a BFP?
    This is my first FET.
    14. Did you have any cramps after transfer?
    Yes - mild cramps on days 3-4 in lower abdomen, then constipation and wind for 2 days with stomach cramps, lumbar pain on second day, then diarrhoea for a day and then a little mild lower abdomen cramping again.  Then symptoms subsided, though my womb felt and still feels weirdly 'hot'.
    15. Did you spot after transfer?
    No
