FET scheduled for 9th November!!

I just had my scan and my lining was just thick enough, so they’ve scheduled my transfer for Thursday 9th!

I’m feeling excited and scared all at the same time. I just want to be able to enjoy this moment but it’s so hard. I know it sounds negative, but I have this voice in my head saying, don’t let yourself get too excited because it didn’t work last time so unlikely to this time 😬

Very exciting. Best of luck and don’t let the voice get you down either. Easier said than done, I know. 🌷

Ah, thank you 🙏 it really is.

I’m trying to tell myself that the disappointment won’t feel worse if it doesn’t work and I’ve kept my hopes up, than if I haven’t - but it’s hard to believe it. X

Hi Coco24. Well, I would listen to your positive voice if you can, as your embie is wanting to come back home where he/she belongs. You're looking good to go, so keeping everything crossed for you. Diane

Hi Diane, thank you so much for your message. That’s such a nice way of looking at it. I think I’ve been feeling like my embie doesnt belong in me- which won’t help it feel like it’s at home 😬 I hope alls well with you. Xx

How exciting... depending on how our 2-day old embryos thaw and grow on we might also be having our transfer on Thursday when they are hopefully at blastocyst stage? We might be 2ww buddies! Good luck :-) Have you had any side effects from medication to date? x

Oh that’s really exciting! That would be great if we were 2ww buddies 😊 That really is the worst part of this process! So, will they be thawing yours on Monday? I have had side effects, although nothing too bad yet. The main thing has been getting more tired than usual, bloating and I’ve also put on weight- I’m not eating more, so I can only think that it’s from all the medication. Have you had any side effects? X

This is going to be my first 2ww, our fresh cycle went to freeze all after I over stimulated in the summer. I feel like I've had what I can only describe as a permanent hangover since being on progynova... I'm exhausted, feel like my brain is in a fog and have had an almost constant niggly headache. I'm also quite bloated and can't stop eating rubbish!! It's definitely been harder than I thought it would be... final buserelin injection tomorrow, start prednisolone tomorrow (I have high nk cell count) and cyclogest pessaries on Sunday... it feels like such a long process doesn't it!! Good luck x

Oh you poor thing. That must have been such a hard summer. Well hopefully now your body has calmed down it will be able to accept your embie 🤞i had my final buserelin spray last night and starting all the progesterone today which I’m not looking forward to. Good luck to you too - let me know how you’re getting on and also if you want a vent! Xxx

Thanks. I had progesterone pessaries in my iui cycles - they're such a delight aren't they 😂 The things we have to do...... x

Hey hun

I'm in the midst of the 2ww my 1st FET and I've had exactly the same thoughts. Don't be too hard on yourself it's so natural to feel like that but wishing you so much luck xx

Reply

Hey lovely, thank you- I’m really trying, but it’s literally like being on a constant emotional rollercoaster. I hope that your doing okay in your 2ww! Sending so much luck your way. X 💐

Thanks hun. It really is tough. My FET didn't go to plan and I'd given up. I also had images of our little embies not thawing properly. It had though and done amazing. Im OK but one second I don't think it's worked the next I feel some hope. Such a roller coaster. Xx

Reply

Oh jeez every part of this process is so so hard. I’m pleased that your little embie thawed well after all that. I think all we can do is try and ride the rollercoaster and try and keep as calm as possible. Will be keeping everything crossed for you 🤞 🤞

Reply

Thanks hun. A good night's sleep and I feel so much brighter today. I know people who have got their little miracles and there are success stories on here. So let's keep on believing and riding the roller coaster and hopefully we will get our happy ending xx

It’s amazing what a good nights sleep can do! You’re absolutely right. That’s why this group is so good. I feel like we get to be part of the reality of what it can take to make a baby- rather than all the projections that I soak up from social media. We definitely will get our happy ending- it’s just taking us a bit longer than we hoped... 🙏 💐 xxx

The power of sleep! I'm glad that there's been some realistic stories in the media recently. This group is beyond amazing I'd be completely lost without it. You are spot on but let's hope we both got our happy endings very soon xx

Reply

Absolutely! I hope you had another good sleep last night. I completely agree- it’s so important to know that we’re not alone in what we’re going through. Xxx

Good luck! I hope it all goes well!
