Hi Nikki, I hope you don't mind me replying as I'm not pg any more but I did have my FET in Feb last year which resulted in my beautiful twin boys :) :)
( born in oct) I took baby aspirin and I had assisted hatching on the frosties too, I think it all helped, I was also very, very relax on this cycle too as I was so sure it wouldn't work ,they gave us a 13% chance on the fet but we had a 40% chance on our 1st fresh go which fail..so theres no understanding the whys and hows I think it had a lot to do with being relax and carrying on as normal (I went and did my weekly food shop straight after my ET), also I think luck has a lot to do with it too, we have certainly been very lucky.

Our tx last Feb cost us 1300 pounds for drugs, the ET, assisted hatching and every thing that goes with FET, so I think you have a good deal there. I had mine in Bristol at the priory rd clinic and they are fantastic there.

I hope this is the go that works for you and I really mean that, it's definitely time you guys had some good luck  ^goodluck^ ^fairydust^

Love CJ x

Hiya

Hope you dont mind me posting

I'm just starting on my fet and only have 2 frosties! thought we would give it a go first before starting on a whole new cycle just because its easier on my body and cheaper

I've been told at my hospital (leeds) its going to cost £900 for treatment and then another £150 to £200 for the drugs so I think youve got a really good deal

I really wish you the very best of luck with whatever you decide to do!

Hi Nikki

Just wanted to wish you luck in whatever you decide to do!!

I have just done a FET and unfornately got a negative but I am going again cause I know one day it will work. I must admit I was alot more calmer on my FET than the fresh cycle, and in my eyes this has to be a bonus.

You just have to go with what your happier with. My FET cost me 653 pounds but that was half NHS/private so I think your price is very good.

All the luck in the world

Hi Nikki,

I had my first fresh cycle in mar/apr and got 6 embryos. Had two put back but got a -ve.

Now DR for an FET hopefully later this month.  Our FET is around £800 including drugs which is in a private clinic, so it sounds like we are also getting a good deal ;D

Fortunately my clinic is really good and they did say I could have a fresh cycle but we decided to go for an FET to see how we get on.  Our decision was based on the fact that the FET will be better on my body and that we have the embies so we may as well try that first before a fresh cycle.

Good luck with whatever you decide.  Sorry your clinic isn't being much help.

Hi Nikki

I am on the 2ww from a medicated FET.  all of my 8 frosties were thawed and 2 made it to blast before being replaced.  The whole cost for this cycle has been about £1600 (seems like i have had a bit of a raw deal  :-[  on the money front)

I too found the whole process a lot less stressy than fresh IVF - The 2ww has been no better though!

Lots of luck

Nikki,

I don't mean to crash your post but I am under Birmingham Womens (ACU) for my treatment too. I have found them to be fantastic - they have looked after both my hubby and me in a very sensitive and caring way, to the extent that they kept popping up to ward 8 to visit me when I was in for 2 weeks with OHSS, phone calls at home during my cycle to chat on progress and see how we were coping. I have been an egg donor on all three of my cycles and even when it failed second time due to too low a dosage of menopur, they were still really positive and upbeat and allowed me to be a donor again third time.

I'm just recovering from a bad bout of OHSS and having shared my eggs again this cycle, I only have two frozen embryos to work with. The staff have again, been very supportive and encouraging.

Give them a chance - the unit has been going through some very trying times with the big staff change over and the new managements 'business like' appraoch. I know the 'old' staff have found it very difficult and have been trying to battle on for the best of their patients regardless.

Lisa

sorry, if I sound a little rattled, I'm not, just wanted to let people know how good ACU have been to us.
