    So sorry abt ur BFN. If the quality of your embroys were excellent it cud be implantation issue.. Check for any blood clotting issue? Hope FET gives you your miracle..

    Praying for you..

    Ok ladies, this thread is on a roll...we got 4 recent BFP's (Traci, Briana, Stacie & now Amy) and with 2 FET's underway (Serena & Sally) and 2 current stimmers (Jenn & Uma), we are looking to make history this month & next!! Who else besides Karen is starting stims soon? I'm probably missing someone.

    I'm very excited that a good many planning to bring in the new year with their own IVF fireworks!!! There are many ladies starting new cycles in/around January and I can't think of a better way to bring in 2010.

    Happy Monday & wishing everyone gobs of fertility this week!!!

    Thanks! It seems like January is so far away. Good luck finding a doctor - at least you've got a bit of time to do your research. Have a good Monday!

    AFM- I KNOW I said I was done, AND I MAY STILL BE DONE, but I wanted you all to know that I am going to schedule a follow-up consultation with RE to hear her professional opinion regarding our three failed IVF cycles & get her recommendation whether we try again or stop now.

    I still feel very strongly that it is just too risky and our odds are too great with IVF as this cycle was a reminder that it may not be meant to be. DH and I have discussed foster children, adoption and surrogacy. If you think IVF is expensive, you ain't seen nothin' yet! I really don't know what our future holds, but I know it holds a child that is meant to be in our family. I just hope & pray that we get our answers after first of the year which way to go. Thanks again for all of your love & support as this has been quite a tough journey and I couldn't have gotten this far without my APA sister-friends!

    Hi. I am great! Last day home from work. tomorrow I am back.
    How are you?

    The OHSS is subsiding. Thank goodness. I feel much better. Still bloated, but boy what a difference w/out all the pressure.

    So, when are you starting up again?

    Beta will be either Weds or Friday next week. They are closed for Thanksgiving. 9 days to go!

    I'm so sorry, my heart breaks for you. After having my own heart broken with only one failed IVF, I cannot even imagine how difficult this is for you hun. Just keep on pushing and hopefully your Dr's can figure something out for you to have a successful IVF. You are such an amazing woman and I know you will be blessed with a child one day no matter how it happens... I just pray it'll be IVF 4 success!

    Glad to hear you're scheduling a follow-up consultation to hear what your doctor thinks. You've been so strong and such a wonderful supporter here at APA. I'm praying that God brings you a child, in whatever way He can.

I'm going to ask her lots of questions Wednesday and see if we can do testing and start the process of FET. The nurse had told me that it would take about 1.5 months since I'd have to be on BCPs beforehand to regulate me (since we dont know if i have regular cycles anymore or not)... so I'm going to keep praying God helps me find the answer and helps me keep fighting thru this journey. I know that I will have my miracle one day, I just refuse to give up. Now that I'm passed all the sadness, well almost over it, I just need to get back on the wagon and keep pushing.

    Also, Jenn is my inspiration. She jumped right back into it and I was just so amazed with her strength that I know i'll be able to do it again too, with the help of all my sisters here of course.
    Good for you for gettin' on that horse right away! Saying prayers that your consultation goes well!

    I can't wait. I just know you will have a Thanksgiving Miracle. Congrats on both frosties making it.

    Okay, now someone will have to clue me in on what meds FET consists of and how long the process takes and what goes on. I know NOTHING about it. lol. Do I get monitored closely or anything like with IVF? How does it all work?

    Rhonda, I can't wait to hear about your follow-up consult with RE. I really hope somehow you can try again with the rest of us January-sista's. Either way, I know you will get your next LO. Heck, you'd be such a great mom to have - you can adopt me!

    Oh, I'm so happy to hear that! I was waiting for your update all day, too. I can't believe beta is only 9 days away. That will be here in a flash.

    Dena, I don't know anything about FET, but I'm glad you are getting back on it again. Be careful not to get too down on yourself for this time not working. Unfortunately there is no 100% guarantee with IVF and in the couple years I've been on here I've seen people with the greatest chances getting let down and people with the smallest bit of hope getting miracles. There are a million factors that can make a cycle not work, and don't for a minute think your body is broken! Even people with all the odds for them have typically a 20-25% chance per month - and that means, no male or female issues, no age issues, etc, etc. I know it totally sucks and is disappointing (believe me, I know), but don't give up hope. Just take some time to chill out and then move forward.. I'm those frosties are going to give you your BFP.

    9 days, We can make it! Love to you! I can't believe we are on the same exact cycle. When was trasfer for you, Weds or thursday?

    Also, how many did you transfer in? I know it is all here somewhere, but a lot to scroll through.

    OK, sorry. I get it. You did an FET. Sorry, I am a bit slow today. Good luck! I am waiting to find out if my 2 ebryos were able to be frozen. Sorry for the confusion. I am now officially on the same page.

    Well, it is great news, 25th might be the beta day for both of us. I am scared to death.

    That's right! We need to get a report on your frosties lady! Serena was a FET and she had her thawed out embabies transferred today!! I think they were 5day embryo's so that is why she is testing in 9 days. I'm sure she will update us all later. This has been a great day so far.
