I'm basically just wondering do they weigh at PTC? There's no screening this time and thats when it was done on the fresh cycle. My bmi is 34.5 and continually dropping but I'm afraid in case the scales weigh heavy. I'm absolutely worried sick. I gained weight with my fresh cycle and am only just managing to lose it now. Appointment is tomorrow. I should have a fair bit off come transfer as my heads in the game and I'm doing well. Just hoping I get through tomorrow. It's so so difficult.

I wasn’t weighed at my appt and I had 2 years between fresh and frozen cycles, if you are worried ask the nurse for advice. You can defer I think for upto 3 months. Good luck.

I'm not fussed on deferring we may as well go ahead and see what they say. I know there's not a lot I can do about it now but I wanted to be prepared for their scales weighing heavy and being discharged. I just wondered how the PTC goes for FET as there's no screening appointment. It's been a huge decision to go ahead and not defer.

Do they discharge you if your BMI is high? From memory you will have a couple of months between that appt and getting your treatment schedule and if needs be, which I did, you can choose a later appt to give you a bit of extra time before down regging.

Hi Anniebell,

Well done for getting 'your head back in the game'. It's not easy.

I have had FET twice, nhs and private, and Weight was not mentioned. The nurse just goes through the medication again, pick up from pharmacy and works out a schedule. Or in some cases you have to ring in for it if you are past day 21.

Try and not worry, I know it is hard. All the hard work has been done- your embryo is waiting for you.

Gracie yeah they discharge you as NHS guidelines say you must be below 35. This is my pre treatment appointment so I don't think I'll have a few months. I think if I get by I'll be picking up my medication tomorrow to start on day 21 which is 2 weeks away. The next 6 weeks aren't bugging me as I know I'll have more weight off between now and transfer. I am determined to give me, hubby and frostie the best chance possible. I eat well and healthy all the time but the meds made me gain weight and to be fair I done a fair bit of comfort eating around the failed cycle. I have essentially cleaned up my act. It certainly wasn't easy. I took my fresh cycle fail very hard. The fact it ended on my birthday and then my sister in law announced her pregnancy within days of that and lots of other stuff I am amazed I have even got here!!

I am absolutely terrified of going through this journey again as I found the fail so so hard to get through and due to the pregnancy in the family am continuing to find it hard. We had considered deferring as if this fails we then have that birth to get through whereas if we deferred she would probably have the baby by the time we would be called again therefore we would still have hope. It was a huge decision to decide to go ahead and now that we made the decision I really want to go ahead. I feel fit and healthy, I'm eating all the right foods and I'm having weekly acupuncture. l feel the time might be right but it's incredibly worrying. We have one frozen, will it thaw? What can I do better this time? Constantly trying to destress while keeping upbeat and trying not to worry myself sick about the next few weeks and those questions isn't easy. We have told no one this time and I'm finding that difficult as well. I've no one to talk it out with, yeah hubby is there but I don't want him to think I'm a stuck record!!!

I'm rambling but hey ho it's out there now and I relaxed a little while typing haha!!

Annie that sounds so difficult but you have done an amazing job losing weight and putting yourself back out there for treatment. In terms of stress my first cycle was back in July 2015, my dad, who suffers from bipolar, was so manic two days after my retrieval he was escorted to hospital by the police. My stress levels were through the roof, I was so convinced it wouldn’t work but my 2 year old miracle is upstairs sleeping soundly. This time round my mum, who was diagnosed with dementia when my DD was 8 months old, moved into a home while my dad was once again manic and has only just been discharged to the same home as my mum after 4 months in hospital - my frozen cycle started in November and I am now 35 weeks with a singleton. Both times I was convinced the stress I was under would impact my chances.

It’s really hard to focus on anything in your 2ww but go out on dates with your husband, take nice walks, relax, lots of box sets, this time round I had reflexology which helped me sleep and relax a bit. I had confided in only 2 friends this time round as the pressure of constant questioning is too much and they knew to not ask me unless I volunteered information, it also helped that one of them has walked the road of infertility and ICSI herself with success!

In terms of thaw survival I was petrified ours would perish; I had 3 blasts, one is my daughter and the other two were frozen. The nurse at my pre treatment appt reassured me that they don’t freeze anything that doesn’t have a strong chance of thawing. And the vitrification technique is so much more advanced than the previous freezing technique. A lot of research has been done and they think frozen transfers seem to yield better results than fresh.

I really hope you all get your much longed for babies. It is a hard and isolated road to walk when you’re surrounded by constant reminders of baby’s and expectant mothers everywhere. I obsessively googled every symptom and every rate of success I could find during this 2ww, and drove my husband crazy. Praying for you all xx

Did you girls take the Prognoyva at the same time every day? I think the meds are affecting my memory as I can't remember nothing these days. I've been taking it with breakfast at any time between 8 and 11 this few days and wondered should I start taking it at a certain time like the injections.

I'm on 2 of them a day at the minute and I do take them all at the same time. Usually with breakfast. It leaves me a bit nauseous but I'd only forget others throughout the day if I didn't take all at same time.

Hi Anniebell, I think we went through our fresh cycles around the same time earlier this year? I'm doing a FET cycle at the moment too. Hope everything goes well for you. I'm not taking any drugs for my cycle and since i've known this my last two periods have been late and i've had spotting, it's so typical! I have to start ovulation testing twice a day from tomorrow and when I get a positive, I have my 5 day embryo transferred 6 days later. I'm convinced I won't get a positive ovulation result as my body is playing tricks on me. Guess i'll have to do a medicated cycle next month if that's the case. x

Yeah pup we did do it at the same time. Here's hoping for better results with FET. I've a good feeling about it although I'm trying to stay grounded as I went away down after the last cycle. Why did they decide to do an unmedicated go? I've a scan Friday morning to see how all is. What date next week is your transfer. Mine is next week too.

Hi Anniebell,

Aw fingers crossed we both get a BFP this time.

They decided on non-medicated as I have (or had) regular cycles and ovulated. So in theory, they check when i'll naturally ovulate, and then put my 5 day embryo back in at the same time as my body would do it. I have a scan on Wednesday (which is day 11 of my cycle) to see how thick my lining is. I won't know which day my transfer is until I get a positive on the ovulation sticks. Do you know when yours is yet?

I feel so much more relaxed this time than with everything you go through with the fresh cycle. I just feel a bit of pressure this week with the worry of not ovulating. Are you having any time off for this cycle? i've not decided yet xx

Hi girls. I had an unsuccessful ivf in May. Had my consultation on the 19th of July for a fet and I got my letter on Saturday to say I've already reached the top of the waiting list. I have to ring on Thursday to accept and give details of my last period. However this is now day 38 of my cycle and no sign of my period. All hpt have been negative although I have gotten positive ovulation tests for the past week. How long from accepting is it till I get my appointment with the nurse? And will I get my schedule that day too?

Yeah my date is the end of next week if my wee embie thaws. I only have one so I'm terrified of the thaw and trying not to think much about it. I can't believe how much more relaxing this cycle is. I've a little nausea and headaches from meds. Last time I was so so stressed out with needles, snow (I live in the back of beyond so was worried about not getting out if I needed the hospital), correct eating blah blah blah that I think I put my head and body through the ringer. This time I am taking it easy, not talking about it so much. We have told noone this time. Hopefully you will ovulate, especially if they thought it was good enough to be a candidate for an unmediated cycle. I took no time off work so far this time although I have only went back part time after my failed cycle. I am taking 2.5 weeks off from day before transfer to give me rest and relaxing times. Im doing acupuncture this time around.

Carlie29. Usually about 2 weeks between accepting and the PTC there is no screening appointment so you should get your schedule and meds on that PTC appointment.

Carlie I am same as you. My period is 7 days late and I am always regular. I called to accept mine last Thursday but the lady didn't ask about my period. I am hoping by time my appointment comes to commence the FET my period will have come.

I have 3 frozen embryos and my doctor recommended we thaw all 3 to see which survive. I am now thinking I should only thaw 2 and save one for a private go but probably best to listen to the Doctor.

Fingers crossed Anniebell. I only have one frostie too, so it's very similar for us both. Hopefully it's a good omen and we'll both be successful!

We haven't told anyone this time either, I thought it would be less stressful, although a few friends and my mum keep asking when my next appointments will be!

I am also doing accupunture this time round, I went today, but it's only my second session and I have one next week, so not sure if it's enough to make a difference.

Keep in touch and hopefully we can get through it together. At my clinic they said it was very unlikely for an embryo not to thaw, as they only freeze the strong ones!

Will pray for us both. FET seems to have a good success rate. My nurse didnt fill me with a heap of hope to be honest. I've been doing Acupuncture weekly from May. I'm enjoying that relaxing hour a week and feel it has a lot to do with me being so relaxed this time around. I have family and friends enquiring too. I've become a good liar. It's better noone knows, it hurts too much to tell them it failed.

It's really bad of the nurse to make you feel like that, what did they say? I've not really thought about it not defrosting, so i'll try and blank any doubt out of my mind and think positive thoughts. I'm glad the accupunture is relaxing you, i'm trying to think of other ways to remain calm on the day. I've heard about ivf meditation cd's but i'm not sure. I'll hopefully have accupunture the day before I have my transfer. I'm not sure about afterwards. What have you planned? I think it will be easier not to tell anyone, at least if bad news, we can tell them in our own time. I don't like lying, but people will understand.

Fingers and toes crossed xx

I tried the mediation apps and it wasn't for me. The nurse just said it's a pity we only have 1 as they then have all hope pinned on one thawing and there's no choice for 'the best' one. Anyhow what will be will be. I've had my acupuncture this morning so feeling very chilled but very sick as tablets upped to 3 today. Sucks as I have work this afternoon. My embie is a Blasto 2BB. My fresh transfer was a 5AB blasto.

Thanks Anniemc, i'll download and see if it helps.

That's really bad of the nurse to say that Anniebell. It would be pointless in time and cost to freeze anything that didn't stand a chance. I'm holding out hope for both of us - this is our time! :)

I have no idea what grade my embryo is, but think the one they used for fresh and this one were about the same, but the one they used slightly better.

What tablets are you taking? I have no idea as i'm drug free. I've got my lining scan in the morning, so i'll try and ask lots of questions. I'm worried my lining will be too thin xx

That's what I'm hoping Pup. I am on Progynova. Ask plenty. I'm up on Friday morning. I tried ringing the nursing line there this evening as I've a horrid bad ovulating like pain in my side and got a little worried. Can't get them so I'll wait it out. I'm a bit worried about this whole cycle now as according to my period tracker which is never ever wrong I'm due a period in 5 days meaning my transfer day would be the day my period ends. I know I'll not get the period but im terrified now in case I do get it. Im trying not to worry and tell myself the docs know what they are at!

Anniebell or pup18 would you be able to give rough time line of FET, how long did you have to wait from when you accepted your nhs place for FET to commence? Are you given a choice to go drug free? Roughly how long does FET take from start to finish.

Sorry lots of questions but would be helpful if anyone could answer any of these questions.

Evening ladies,

Anniemac, I'm sure your clinic would have worked out your drugs and transfer in line with your cycle, so I wouldn't think about your period. I'll be different this time because of the drugs. I know it's easy to say. Give them a call to put your mind at rest. I guess you need to ovulate before your transfer? So that may be the pain. Hope you feel better xx

Pressed submit early oops! We have to have faith in the experts! I was told to use ovulation tests first thing and before bed, but keep reading that between 10am - 8pm is best!! I'm going to check tomorrow.

Anniemc- I think it probably differs between clinics. I'm with oxford fertility and could have had my FET last month but was on holiday, my fresh cycle failed in March. My clinic decided drug free for me because I have a regular cycle and ovulate. I had to ring my clinic on day 1 of period, book in for a lining scan on day 10 ish, mine is tomorrow which is day 11. I have to use ovulation sticks twice a day from day 10 until I get a positive. I then ring clinic who book my transfer for 6 days after. My frostie is 5 day one hence the 6 day wait. Think that's all I have to do xx

Yeah it was a blind hour of panic but the pain left and I didn't bother. I'm up Friday so it will wait. Good luck tomorrow!

Anniemac I got my letter and then had my nurse appointment 2 weeks later and due to my cycle started my meds 5 days after that. I wasn't given a choice what kind of treatment. FET is taking roughly 6 weeks for me from nurses appointment on.

Hello, I had my scan today which went better than I thought it would. My lining is 7.9mm which the nurse was pleased with as it needs to be over 7mm and i'm only on day 11 of cycle. I had a dominant egg on my left ovary which was measuring 19mm, so she said it was likely to "hatch" today or tomorrow, so I should get a positive ovulation text tonight or tomorrow. Earlier than I thought as I pressumed i'd ovulate more on day 14/15. I have to phone clinic when I get my positive and also go back in for another scan after to check that the egg has released and lining still looking good. I didnt know i'd have to have another scan. I booked a half day at work today as the clinic an hour away, but hopefully i'll be able to get the next scan off. I haven't said anything to work this time round as wanted to wait until I knew for definate that it was going ahead. Nobody had holiday next week but now sods law someone has just booked off Wed, Thurs and Fri next week, so it won't go down well that i'll need time off!
Now I just need the defrosting to go according to plan! Fingers crossed for all of us!

How are you feeling today Anniebell?

When was your fresh cycle Anniemc?

Good news pup18!

Thanks for the info on FET pup18 and Anniebell.

Pup18 I had my third failed fresh cycle in June, this was my NHS place and for first time I had embryos to freeze, I got 3 five day to freeze. I paid privately for my review appointment and have already received my offer for NHS FET, so awaiting my appointment to get started. I expected a much longer wait for NHS FET so at least I have something to focus on.

it is so hard to concentrate in work sometimes.

Anniemac are you still late or has your period arrived? I'm now day 41 and no sign of it. Just typical lol I'm thinking of postponing my fet for a couple of months as I've just started a new job and won't be able to get time off for a while yet. Have any of you ever postponed treatment or no if it's ok to do so?

Mine arrived it was 9 days late, I hope that means it’s back to normal now.
I have never postponed treatment but I think on nhs you can for 3 months but not sure. It might be different for FET. ;)

Thanks anniemac. I have to ring them tomorrow to accept the offer so I'll ask and see. I'd love to start now but just think it would be the wrong time for me. I want to be able to just focus on it without the stress and worry of a new job too.

Morning Anniebell,

No nothing! :-( she thought i'd get the surge last night or this morning - beginning to think I won't get a positive result knowing my luck. I might test a bit earlier tonight as most tests say between 10am - 8pm whereas the clinic told me first wee of the day and before bed. Starting to feel less relaxed about it all now, especially as there will be a clash at work too. I'll have to speak to my boss today. I had kinda hoped to keep it a secret from everyone this time!

How are you doing?

Fingers crossed you get an appointment soon Anniemc. It is hard concentrating at work while all this is going on
