Anyone Else Transfering Embryos 4/18/2013


#1

Hi gang,
here we go again, time for another transfer…
i am a gestational surrogate and am going thru IVF for 2 wonderful guys. we had a frozen transfer where 2 embryos took but failed to grow past 7 weeks. it’s been a few months and we are ready again.
they were out of donor eggs and have gone with a new donor and we are very excited to try again. hugs to all!!!

You are so wonderful to be a surrogate!

I’m waiting to see if I am a 3 or 5 day transfer. Probably will be 3, in which case I will transfer on Monday 4/15. Had my retrieval today. But, we won’t be far off! Will check in to see how things go. Good luck!


#3

thats awsome! how did the retrieval go? we will have a 3dt this go around…ive had 5dt before.


#4

Retrieval went fine. They saw 8 follies on ultrasound and retrieved 10, so I’m happy with that. This is my first IVF and I have been very sore…like I did a billion sit-ups. Not sure if that’s normal, but I’m hoping it goes away soon. I start a ton of new meds today…antibiotics, estrace, a steroid, plus my PIO shot, thyroid med, baby aspirin, prenatal. Soooo overwhelming!!

Had a ton of dreams about the fertilization report last night. Super nervous :frowning:


#5

yes, it is super common to be sore!!!
i stop lupron today, still on estrodiol and start medrol/progestrone shots mon. some clinics do antibiotics and some don’t. i won’t be taking them this time.
with my own son(whos 5yrs) we did 12 IUI
this is my 5th IVF for others.
my partner and i had to have “help” having our son via unknown sperm donor, and this is our way of "paying it forward"
i LOVE being pregnant and know the pain of it not happening very easily…so i wanted to help others.

I’m 4/17- FET on a 5day embie. :slight_smile:


#7

how cool!!! i will keep my fingers crossed for you:cross: :bsv:


#8

I will either transfer on 4/15 or 4/17


#9

are you doing fresh or frozen cycle?


#10

fresh cycle here, and confirmed for Wednesday trasnfer:cheer: :babydust:


#11

AWSOME!!! we will have to keep in touch!!! i am doing a fresh cycle as well!!!


#12

Waiting to see if we are 3 day or 5 day! Today is day 2 and all of them ended up fertilizing (even the two that were behind). Of the 10, 9 were at 4-6 cells, which I guess is normal right now? They said we have a 50/50 shot at a 5-day transfer, which means I won’t know until tomorrow morning if I need a substitute for school or not. It’s really hard playing this waiting game, but kind of exciting, too!

Sounds like we will all be in the 2ww together…yay!
