  • Hiya, I've just done my FET after cancelled cycle in May due to OHSS too!

    How old are your embryos? 3 or 5 day? I had a 5 day embryo so my transfer was 5 days after my lining scan xx

  • As iff! That's crazy πŸ˜‚.. there 6 day blastocyst's .. on my protocol it says transfer is between day 17-21 must be depending on the lining scan.. have you completed your cycle now then? Ornin your two week wait? ☺️ Xx

  • Yeah! Mine was cancelled and had my transfer 12 Sept. My transfer was 5 days after my lining scan! We got our BFP yesterday πŸ’• waiting til Monday to get booked in for a scan xox

  • That's brilliant! Congratulations πŸ˜ƒ..did you transfer just the one or two? How exciting! Bet you can't wait for the scan xx

  • Thankyou! We had just the one transferred.

    Im so excited its amazing 😍

    Yes, scan hopefully wont be too far away xx

  • Hey, I've just done my second FET. At my first lining scan my lining wasn't quite thick enough, I had to take tablets a further week then have another scan which they then confirmed lining was ready. I then had transfer a week later.

    I don't think it matters at what point they transfer with a frozen cycle as they're controlling your body with the tablets and pessaries anyway.

    Pessaries have to be taken for at least 5 days prior to transfer as well xxx

  • Amanda, did you take pessaries? I am struggling, I feel mine melts on the outside and comes onto my undies, I cannot make it stay in although I'm in bed for upto 30 minutes after inserting...

    What am I doing wrong?

  • Yeah I'm using them, your body will absorb what it needs within 20 minutes and anything else that comes out is basically just excess. Don't worry, same happens to me. I use panty liners but forgot this morning and had a lot of pessarie in my underwear although had lay down for 20-30 minutes after inserting it. So I think this is pretty common xxx

  • That puts me at ease. Thank god.

    I was thinking to go to the chemist here for an applicator.


  • No problem πŸ™‚ Which pessaries are you using? Xxx

  • Progestan 200mg

  • Thanks for the Info hunn 😊.. so it would be 5 days from lining scan if all goes well? That's good to hear I get so inpatient but this IVF process is a waiting game! I started my first cycle last year its crazy to think if it worked I would've had my baby by now but Ive got to keep positive πŸ‘ I keep busy at the gym and work at the minute until my transfer then Ive planned for me and the hubby to go away for a thew days to keep my mind at ease πŸ˜‚.. are you on your two week wait now? Xx

  • Mines was a week later, I think all clinics are different. Mine just slotted me in for the first available slot but I know you do need to take the pessaries for at least 5 days before the transfer.

    Yeah keeping busy is the key thing I think πŸ™‚

    Yeah on the 2ww, currently 1dp5dt so very early days yet lol xxx

  • I had my lining scan Tuesday last week and then again yesterday - my transfer is scheduled on Wednesday next week. Xx

    My lining from the first scan onwards was 10mm (I am 36, with menaupause since my puberty).

  • Oh that's brilliant good luck for your transfer and hope you don't go crazy during your two week wait because I no I will be πŸ˜‚ (I'll try not to) .. what do they want your lining thickness to be at? I don't have a clue what my clinic want it to be I suppose theyl tell me on Monday 😬 Xx

  • I believe lining size of anything above 7mm is perfect according to the Dr scanning who did my scan in London. The dr from yesterday said your ready to me at 10mm and was very happy and said my womb was spotless 😳 - no idea how they can see it lol.

    Good luck sweet and about the wait, trust me I cannot wait either. I am counting minutes, don't go too harsh on yourself with excercise - I was told yesterday, no sunbathing, no swimming, can't go into the beach, or bend too much... only to relax - so we've been walking a lot today...

    Wish you all the best, keep in touch. X

  • Oh that's great I think last time my lining was 7.5mm at my baseline scan of what I can remember.. yeah I will do in the tww I'm going to have 3 days off after transfer and just carry on with acupuncture and not bother with the gym until after 12 weeks if successful wich hopefully it is! Not heavy lifting of anything wouldn't want to risk anything to the pregnancy.. thank you soo much hunn and you too! Youl have to message me when you've had your transfer we can keep each other sane πŸ˜‚ Xx

  • Definitely. Xx
