Embryo transfer tomorrow

I am due to go back tomorrow for embryo transfer and feel sick with worry that something is going to go wrong.

I can't stop googling embryo arrest and it's really making me scared. The nurse called yesterday day 3 to book me in for transfer. I asked how they were doing and she said you still have all of them and they are doing as they should,

I just can't shift this negative feeling 😔😢 x

Don't stress yourself out unnecessarily, easier said than done I know. The fact they are taking 4 to day 5 is amazing. Just imagine having a a fresh and some to freeze. Light some candles, have something non alcoholic in a fancy glass and relax. I say this counting down the hours until I can ring for my progress report in the morning and I'm trying to keep myself busy too. X

Thank you we only had 1 fertilise on first cycle and we had to have a day two transfer as it didn't look good. I know we are very lucky to be where we are just having a bad day 😔. What stage are you currently at? X

Just starting my 4th round having my 1scratch on Tuesday.

Wow that's a great improvement then, ivf is horrible and we all have bad days we wouldn't be normal if we didn't.

I hope you get your BFP xx

Had EC on Friday, 9 fertilised so find out tomorrow if we are having transfer tomorrow or Wednesday. I'm concerned about my lining as it was thick at 15.3 on Friday so they actually scanned me after EC to make sure it was the same as the wed before. So think regardless I think I'm going to ask tomorrow for a scan first. I'm not sure if they check the lining before the embryo is transferred back or not as part of it. X

Thanks. No neither can I so I think I'll just ask. They said to mention anything and although no spotting or anything I had mild cramps earlier and thought oh god of this is the start of AF then it would put a stop to fresh transfer. X

I know every clinic is different but I had a scan before ET as I had free fluid and they needed to check it had absorbed enough for transfer. I think if you ask they'd definitely do it as they don't want to waste a chance of a successful transfer either. Good luck xx

I know it's so difficult but try not to stress yourself out too much. To say that your embryos are all doing really well is great news!

I will be thinking of you and sending lots of good luck your way xxx

In the same boat with ET tomorrow although I have 4 to choose from. I haven’t been told anything about thickness of lining or the grades on them, just that they were doing great. I feel like I’m not being told everything hence me on here asking questions all the time. We all at some point are gonna go crazy with worry, it’s part of it unfortunately and our minds like to play tricks with us (I suffer from anxiety also 😡) it’s my first time and I’m really hoping it’ll work and I have my fingers, toes and everything else crossed for all who are going through this journey 🙏🏻🙏🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻xx
