FET #2

We've reached a decision....we have decided to start frozen embryo transfer #2.


I'd like to say that it was an easy decision but we really had to think long and hard about this one. Emotionally were we ready? Financially could be do it again so soon? Friday afternoon I had a lengthy phone appointment with my RE. We discussed the last three cycles...what worked, what didn't work, what we could do differently next time etc. Dr. D took the time to discuss my cycles at length and I hung up the phone feeling much better about things than I had been. 


What we have decided is to add Medrol which is a steroid. Everything in both cycles looked great. Lining was great, embryos were great but still we ended both with a BFN. Adding the Medrol will hopefully suppress my immune system enough to not reject the embryos...at least that is the hope. I will also be on a much longer cycle this time and the thought there is that my ovaries will be suppressed and out of the picture and it will give my lining more time to thicken naturally. 


So....


Tonight I take my injection of Lupron Depot and I must say, I was pleasantly surprised...instead of daily injections, this one is one intramuscular injection only that slowly releases over a month. I like this! 




Our frozen embryo transfer #2 looks a little something like this...

  • October 24th - start Lupron injections
  • November 14th - start Estrace
  • November 25th - start Progesterone
  • November 28th - lining check
  • December 1st - Protocol change - start Medrol
  • Estimated ET - December 8th
  • Estimated Beta - December 22nd

Feeling excited and scared!
