Hello All..hi val

Hi, my name is Sue and I have been off this site for a long long while. Val, I am glad that you are back too. I am happy to see so many new members and at the same time sad to find none of the old mates except Val. For all that are new here:

I have had a long journey TTC and still am. I went thru 8 rounds of clomid, tubal cannulation to open my right tube, 6 rounds of IUI, a miscarriage at 6 weeks, a laparoscopy and a round of IVF/ICSI that resulted in another miscarriage (twins) at 5 weeks. Finally we did antibody and genetic testing but the results were normal. All this happened over 4 years of time. So, I have had endometrosis removed, a tube unblocked, OHSS, annovulation and now recurring miscarriages- a bundle of obstacles to see my bundle of joy. I have some frozen embryos from our last IVF and we will be doing a FET beginning next month.

I have lost all hope of carrying full-term and seeing a live and healthy baby. There are no more tears. I have turned numb and I am ready for a childless future. Just going ahead with the treatment for the sake of DH and family.

I just came here to see if any of you have done a FET and what your experiences were. I had a lot of eggs last IVF and 15 fertilized. 4 were transferred. We still have 11 frozen embryos. Also has anybody done AH with FET? On what basis does the RE decide if there has to be AH?


Hello All..hi val

First, I am soo sorry for your losses. I know how hard it is to go thru try after try. And first we think getting BFNs are hard, but losing a pg is even harder.

I did 2 fresh IVF, and one FET with a former RE. With the FET we did assisted hatching and embryo glue, without success.

We swtiched drs and out 1st IVF with him worked, but I lost my daughter at 22 weeks due to incompetent cervix. We did a FET with 3 embies in July, and I concieved again, only to miscarry at 7 weeks.

So I can say that FET can work, and I think it is great that you have several frozen embies. How many are you transferring this time?

Oh, and I am one of the girls from the former site, and remember you, but you may have known me as kr94.

Hello All..hi val

hi lisa, i do remember you as kr94. I am sorry for your losses too, and you have certainly gone through a lot more than me. Did you do antibody and genetic testing after your losses?

Hello All..hi val

hi lisa, i do remember you as kr94. I am sorry for your losses too, and you have certainly gone through a lot more than me. Did you do antibody and genetic testing after your losses? I still haven't discussed how many embryos will be transferred. Since we did 4 last time, i am guessing it might be the same this time too.

Hello All..hi val

After the 2 failed fresh IVF and failed FET with our former RE, we did do the anitbody and killer cells test, but everything was normal.

Hello All..hi val

Hi Sue, remember me? It's been a while. I wil be praying for a successful FET for you. We did one a year ago but it was not a success. We only had 1 embroy to transfer though and it wasn't the best quality either. You have 11 frozen, that is totally awesome and sounds promising.

Hello All..hi val

Hi Sue, I am also from the old site, but I think I joined as you were taking a break. I just wanted to wish you the best of luck. I have also had a m/c and know the heartbreaking loss. I can't imagine the pain you have gone through with your journey. I did want to tell you though that after my very painful m/c, my RE was helpful enough to tell me that only 1 in 6 embryos is genetically viable. Even with conception through sex. I was blown away. You probably already know that, but in case not, it may change how many embryos you decide to transfer. Keep in touch through your cycle. We're here to support you!!!

Hello All..hi val

Hi amber & lily, I do remember you both. Sorry for your failed rounds too. Where are you both w.r.t treatment now? If everything goes well, I will be doing a FET on 8th Nov. Will let you know how it goes.

Hello All..hi val

hi guys! i do remember you. do you remember sarah who used to post on the ivf boards? she got pg and did many many fresh and frozen cycles. i think that we tend to think that after so many tries that it won't work if it hasn't yet, but really what is the difference in your body from the 1st try to the 8th? your body doesn't know the difference. (unless you are undergoing more hormonal changes and they are getting worse like mine)
i know statistics do not agree such as with the shots they say that if it doesn't happen in 6 cycles, statistically it won't, but really is your body keeping count? i saw a show on discovery health i think, but it was about a woman and her husband who tried and got pg the first time on injectables.
when they tried again, they did not get pg until the 16th time, and then it was quadruplets. you never know is my point. it's easy for us to lose faith after all of the disappointment, believe me, i am feeling that now, but you never know when it could happen!

Hello All..hi val

That is so true Val and I needed that reminder to hold out hope. Wishing you the best!!!
