I'm already preparing for our 2nd DEIVF transfer on the 7th of March.
Sorry for asking but what is a D1?
I'm taking the birth control pill at the moment and down regulation injection on the 5th of February.
D1 is first day of period. Then I’m on the pill until my donor is ready and we will both come off the pill st the same time to sync cycles as I’ll have a fresh transfer this time. Think it’ll be mid March now. I’m so impatient.
I'm having a fresh transfer too and I'm equally impatient!
All my friends became pregnant with donor eggs recently, I'm the only one left, it has to work this time!!
Could you choose your donor or did your clinic match you?
How many are you going to transfer? Do you get them PGS tested?
Hi I would like to join on here if that’s ok ?
I’m going for DE in March which is frozen from our last cycle - just waiting for my period to start and I will be doing a mock month in preparation- trust it to be late!!
A little bit about myself I have already 3 children 2014, 2016 and 2018 all by the same donor using a clinic in Spain and we have 4 day 5’s on ice - I can’t stop thinking of the other ones and want one last try to see if we can complete our little family. I thank the lord for what we already have been blessed with and know we have been incredibly lucky - just hoping our luck continues a little longer x
Just finished with all the tests they requested and now just waiting for D1
Will be great to get to know you all and good luck xx
Besidetheseaside I have watched loads of you tube videos on donor treatment and ivf and pgs worth a look. One Dr I watched said on one of his Donor Egg videos that using young donor eggs has such high chances that it’s ‘just a matter of time before you’re pregnant’. I keep that firmly in mind now.
My Spanish clinic have said they’ve matched me with a new donor now and who will only find out blood type and height I think. Honestly I dont really care as long as she’s very healthy and had all the tests she needs.
I’d like to transfer 2 to increase the odds but as we have a child already from DEIVF then my husband is scared of twins happening. As hard as that would be I would be over the moon. So I guess it’s just one. iF we get that far.
PGS/PGD. Such a minefield. So many conflicting stories and theories. I’ve decided to see what embryos we get on d1. I’m am thinking I probably won’t This is our last cycle. The £3.5k PGS cost would only give us less chances and less cash. It’s not proven to be 100% and I had to terminate a PGS tested baby at 14 weeks last year so I’m not the biggest fan.
Betty, wow what a beautiful family you’ve achieved. I hope you get to complete it this year. No reason you shouldn’t. Sounds like all your stars are aligned to get your 4th.
AFM. I had my blood tests back yesterday. All good. My thyroid is back on track. Lining scan last week was good too. No fluid in my uterus which delayed a cycle last year. And my Lining was 10mm in medicated so all good signs. So D1 is next week, I’ll be on the pill until I’m synced with my donor, then we both stop and I wait for D1 then transfer hopefully D16 ish. All in all mid to end March it seems. At least I can say next month now.
Our clinic doesn't do PGS but that's okay with us.
I know couples which had PGS tested embryos and it didn't work. My friend had mosaic embryos twice and they would have had a chance if they would have transferred them instead of testing them. I think it's different with donor eggs anyway. I'd definitely do the harmony test though.
I hope you find out soon when your transfer will be.
Are you taking any supplements or are you doing anything special this time?
I'm not off anything this time just folic acid, baby aspirin, Vitamin E, Vitamin D and try to relax.
I had cycles where I did everything possible and it didn't work.
I found out in January that I had chronic Endometritis (not Endometriosis!) and took for 2 weeks a special antibiotics which I hope did sort that out. Apparently it can cause multiple implantation failure and miscarriage and it doesn't make any symptoms. So worth checking it or just talking doxycycline for 2 weeks can sort it out.
With which clinic you are going with?
We are with an Ukrainian clinic.
We are going to transfer 3 embryos if we have enough and you?
I did wonder about aspirin. I might ask my clinic when to start that on.
I’m with a clinic in Spain. Easy to get to and it’s all very familiar if I have to alone which I think I I will have to next month.
If we are lucky and have any to transfer then it’ll only be 1. As much as I like the increased odds of two I don’t think I could cope if twins were the result. I hope that I will get 2 or 3 goes st this fresh round.
Hope everyone is keeping well?
I’m currently on my mock month and stopping all meds 25 Feb and should have a bleed a few days later then starting all meds 4th March - transfer is now booked in for 18th March - I’m traveling to Spain alone for mine as DH will stay at home with the family - I have to go for a week as I need hormone bloods and scan done few days before so doing a week x
Great CurlyGirl you are on D1 now!
Are you going to book your flights short notice?
Do you have any issues with the lining or do you respond properly?
My scan went well, thank you 8.2mm and I started Progesterone today.
I'm also on an Immunglobulin infusion right now, will have another one on transfer day and if the pregnancy test is (hopefully) positive.
Wow almost there then besidetheseaside your lining sounds already excellent - how long will you be in Spain for?
So Im currently on my period which has been such a heavy one after I stopped meds - it’s been that mad it’s bad! The mock month must have been a good one and my lining must have been thick lol.
I start back on the patches on 4th March -I have now booked my flight for 12th as I need to be there for 13th for scan and hormone test and then a few days to prepare before transfer on 18th and home 19th - think it will be a long week especially by myself but got a few books and Netflix so hopefully it will go quickly.
So my embryos left over from previous cycle is day 5’s from a fresh cycle we never had PGS on them - but i have had harmony testing with all my babies, have always had to pay privately for that but found it always very reassuring so if I was to get that far this time I would definitely do that again.
