Hi Ladies,

Just wondered if anyone else is having a medicated FET in June?  I would love to hear from you and make some cycle buddies.

We are having baseline scan tomorrow afternoon, I have been DR since 4th May.  If all goes according to plan, we start pregnyl or prognova not sure which ones which  ^idiot^.  ET is scheduled for 6th June assuming everything works as it should.  ^reiki^ ^reiki^

DH and I are both feeling excited, scared and a little apprehensive but I have been having acupuncture and reflexology since our BFN in March and they have helped me feel both relaxed and ready both physically and mentally ;D :) ;D.

We have been training ourselves to think  ^reiki^ thoughts and are hopeful that this will be the one  ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^pray^ ^pray^.

Looking forward to hearing from any of you going through FET, wishing you all lots of luck and sending  ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ thoughts.

Hi Elly

Glad Ur scan went OK. I don't know when transfer will be. Do u know how long a medicated fet takes from d/r to transfer ? I have heard its about 6 weeks but just wondered.

Still waiting for AF to arrive hope its soon so i can start fet.

Take care Hun,
Katie xx

HI Elly

I am currently d/r for my first FET (never got to ET last time as I got OHSS).  Have a scan tomorrow with ET sceduled for 11th June all being well.

It's wierd because on the last treatment I was so excited, I told everyone and thought of nothing else, but with this one I am almost pretending its not happenning.  I do my injections but other than that I am really not thinking about it - I have only told one friend which is so unlike me! 

Anyway just wanted to wish you and Katie loads of luck for your upcoming FETS

Hi Girls,

Karen, Welcome to the thread. I to had ohss and me cycle was abandoned to. I'm exactly like u when i started my icsi treatment i told a lot of people because i thought it would work but then when i had ohss i felt like i let everyone down and now with fet i have only told our families and my boss don't want to tell many people in case it doesn't work but will see how it goes.

Elly, Hi Hun how r u today ?

Well I'm still waiting for AF to turn up and then i can start d/r on day 2 hoping she turns up soon as i just want to get started now.

Good luck to both of u with Ur tx.

Take care
Katie xx

Hi Karen,

Nice to hear from you  ^hugme^.  I hope your scan goes well. Like both you and Katie I dont feel as excited about this one, but maybe its because we know more about what is going on and its not 'all new'.  The good thing is there is no risk of OHSS  :).  I suffered from moderate OHSS with our first fresh cycle, I dont think the doctor should have done the ET but as we were told we shouldnt look back with what ifs.  It obviously was not meant to be  :'(.   

Hi Katie  ^hugme^, I feel okay today, relieved that everything looked okay yesterday at the scan.  I was worried that they may tell us that I had cysts.  Started the progynova today and am starting eating a handful of brazilnuts and drinking fresh pineapple juice daily as these are supposed to be good for your lining. Hope your AF starts soon, its funny but when you dont need it your happy when you dont get it but when you need it to its frustrating that it doesnt start  ^bigbad^.

Karen, keep us posted on how things go.  I really hope that this is the one for you.  ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^

Sending you both lots of  ^hugme^^pray^ and  ^reiki^ vibes.

Katie,

sorry I didnt answer your question about how long FET takes sorry  ^bigbad^ ^idiot^.  Had a long day at work sorry!!  ;)  My FET has taken 6 weeks from the point of DRing to transfer date, but I have read that it depends on wether you have a long or short protocal.  If you are on 6 weeks your ET would be end of June I would imagine.  I really hope that you can start your FET cycle soon.

Take care,

Hi there

Great to hear from you both.

Elly - you are right it is so nice not to worry about OHSS.  I only had a mild case (wasn't hospitalised) but it was extremely painful, I really wouldn't relish going through that again!  It is so difficult though, you feel so cheated when you get that far and then ET doesn't happen but as you say, what is meant to be will be.

Had my scan this morning and so far so good  :) - no cysts and lining thin (only bit of me that is ha!) so start taking the progynova tomorrow.  The nurse said they look for womb lining of 8+ - is that the same as you have both been told?

Katie - Hope AF shows up soon - as Elly says, she never quite behaves how you want her to  ^bigbad^.  If things go to plan, it will be 5 weeks from start of d/regs to ET for me but she did say it could be longer if my womb lining isn't think enough.

Anyway wishing you both all the luck in the world - can't wait to hear how you both get on xxx

Hi Karen,

I am really pleased that everything went so well for you today, fingers crossed that your linning thickens.  Our nurse didnt tell us about the thickness measurements  :(, although I have read that it has to be 11 but I am not sure if it varies by clinic.  My next scan is 2nd June where they will measure the thickness, I will keep you posted with progress.  Please keep us posted with progress.  Sending you lots and lots of  ^reiki^ ^hugme^ ^reiki^.

Katie, how are you lovey, any sign of AF?

^hello^ Ladies,

Hope Ur both fine today.

Ells, I have just looked at my profile and thanks for Ur comment i have put a comment on Ur profile and on ur's to Karen.  :)
Hope Ur scan goes OK on 2nd June not long to go now eh!

Karen, Glad Ur scan went OK. I have not been told what my lining should be they might tell me when i actually start d/r and when i go for scan.

Well AF still not arrived  ^bigbad^ I have looked at my last 3 AF's and they have been 38/37 days today is day 35 so she should be here soon. I hope sometimes i think i am going to come on but then nothing happens never mind.

Hello ladies.  I should be having a FET in June.  I had my Prostap injection last week and have my baseline scan on 29/5.  I think the transfer will be about 2 weeks later all being well.  Good luck to you all.  I'm dreading the 2ww!

Hi Katie,

Have you tried that headex roll on stuff?  Its supposed to be really good and means you dont take any tablets.  Also I if you rub the base of your thumb and thumb tip this is supposed to help if you have a headache.  My clinic have told me that I can take paracetamol if I need too, can you ring yours and check with them?

I really am keen to get moving on this FET, my next scan is a week on Monday, fingers are very tightly crossed that everything looks as it should!  I have been eating plenty of brazil nuts and drinking my pineapple juice -  ;D.

It sounds like your ET will be towards the end of June.  It may conincide with my 2ww, we can  ^pray^ together!  I really do hope that it all works out for everyone.  ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^

Speak again very soon, enjoy the rest of the weekend.

^reiki^ ^pray^ ^reiki^

Elly
