    Hi All my fellow Ivf sisters..
    I’m pn my 3rd IVF cycle. 2nd one i became pregnant but miscarried that was devastating!! Im on my 3rd Cycle now.. It’s my 3rd day since ET. Not feeling the cramps like I was.
    Is it ok to be stressing a little bit and be crying over trivial things??

    I had read every single comment. I’m on my day 3rd of FET in Blastocyst. I don’t feel nothing maybe just little tiny cramping, and emotional ether. I wish baby blast and praying so hard for everyone success !!!!

    I had my ET yesterday and I’m scared everyone keeps saying that spotting it’s good and I did not spot at all . I have cramping but I’m scared . I only had two embryos that survive and we use both. I’m trying to be positive but this is scary feeling . I’m glad I’m not alone and I wish the best of luck to all of you ladies

  • Kay

    I am on day 9 of a FET (5-day blasto-cyst), my test date is 20th Feb. Had quite a bit of brown spotting this time (this is my 2nd try) and am trying to think positive, but it is hard, especially when you are second guessing each and every twinge and was so disappointed when we got the negative result last time.

    Trying not to get our hopes up and stay as relaxed as possible, whilst being curiously excited (such a mixed bag of feelings!)

    Also been getting very irritated (mostly with my other half over nothing) which isn’t great.

    Fingers crossed this will all be worth it. These two weeks are the longest ever!! Such a roller coaster

    • Elaine Kelly

      Hope a goes well this time, Iam just on my last cycle, hoping to have my transfer at the end of the month.

      Be patient with yourself. The process can get to be very emotional, especially when there are unexpected setbacks. I’m 41 and I just finished my first round, and I’m praying constantly that I’m pregnant.

    I am 35yrs to be 36 in july. I had 26 eggs during retrieval. 16 made it to day 5 blastocyst. 14 AA quality and 2 sub-quality. Had 2 embryo transfer and 12 AA freezed. I stayed in bed/rested all thru, unfortunately 2 days b4 my beta, i started cramping nd light then brownish spotting. My doctor suggested i go for blood test and my HCG was less than 1. A big fat negative. I am sooo depressed and devastated. I was doing sooo great with meds nd all.

    May 04, 2018
    • Neethu

      Hi Abby,

      I am so sorry for your loss.

      Yes, you did all you could do. The implanting of the embryo, they say, is not really in our hands.

      I am going to get an ET on Monday May 7, 2018.

      A little nervous about the procedure. I am 41, my first attempt at IVF.

      Wish you the best.

      May 05, 2018
    • Mimi

      Sorry for what you are going through, i have myself gone through this scenario 6 times by now. I have started my new cycle and retrieval is on tentative 13th June, but this time only different we are doing from all last times is Biopsy of Embryos. I always had AA quality of embryo without success so we are taking it a step ahead to know if the embryo which looks good physically is actually good. the process is not abrasive and will not harm the baby. So if you want you can talk to your doctor about the same. I wish you All the Best.

  • Lala

    I don’t agree with your advice about transferring multiple or two embryos. I have identical twins in my family and twin studies they are participating in show that there is an greater risk of early menopause and osteoporosis in twins. There is also a much greater risk of cerebral palsy at birth. These factors need to be seriously weighed up before any decision is made.

      Hello fellow IVFers!! Hope everyone is doing well, this such a stressful time, i just wanted to share my experiences with IVF.
      I have done 2 fresh circles and on my 2nd FET. My first fresh circle didn’t work, i was 29 at the time and had 2 embrios implanted. It was a devastating time, but i did had an FET Afterwards, also failed. I don’t think there is a thing you can do for them to take, i have tried almost bed rest for the 2ww and i have been back to work, and on my 3rd fresh transfer (2 embrios) i just carried on as normal, at the end of the 2 ww i had period cramps so i wasn’t very hopeful…. and when i did get the dreaded phone call with the blood teat result, i nearly fainted when told it was positive. Best day ever as uou can imagine, after that 9 months of constant paranoia.
      My son is now 2 and i can only say that don’t matter what you do, just don’t loose hope, it is like getting on the longest rollercoaster ever but be resilient.
      I am currently on my 2nd day after FET, we had 2 frozen embrios and thought it was only fair to give them a chance, so yes, back on the rollercoaster…
      Just keep distracted if possible and may your 2ww go as quick as possible.
      Ps:i believe start folic acid before and during the treatment is very important.
      All the very best.

    Hi ladies..i am in desperate need of some embryo transfer is next Tuesday on 15th Nov..I have discussed it with the doctor and nurse if i need to take time off..they both said its not necessary as resting at home will not help the transfer to be a success..i am really nervous as i want this to succeed but i fear by rushing back to work i might bring my chances down..i would love a second i need to take off from work for a couple of weeks after the implant?

      Hello mavish I just had my egg transplant on the 5th of Nov and it was a painless process. I resumed work d very next day as if nothing happened but I walk slowly and take each step at a time and try as hard to only get up for a drink of water or for d ladies. I think it would be best for you to rest if your job involves u moving around a lot. Wishing u all d best

    Hi Ladies. First and foremost, I wish all of you guys much success with your transfers. I am in the process of doing my second FET. My first one at age 40 was a fail and I was super sad but I hope this time around all goes well. During my first FET I wasn’t active for days after, but now that I read so many blogs as well as this one, I think this second time around at age 41 I will be a lot more active days after.

    Again, keeping all of you in my prayers.

    I had my 3rd IVF transfer on 7th Sept, so i’m on my 3rd day now. I feel my breasts swelling and started feeling hungry and thirsty all the time. I don’t know if it was because of progesterone im taking. I will have my bloodtest done on 16 Sept and is very worried, nervous and excited. I don’t want to expect early that i’m experiencing early signs of pregnancy bec i did before my failed 2 IVFs. I pray that this 3rd transfer will be the perfect time. 7 days to go before the big announcement!

    When I had my embryo transfer on the 22nd of June they told me that I couldn’t have intercourse afterwards. My pregnancy test came out negative. Luckily I have two frozen embryos so hopefully everything will work out okay.
