FET scheduled for Friday! Did it work for you?

Hello! I'm trying to conceive my 2nd baby with our frozen embryos this Friday with an FET. I did IUI three times with no success, but we finally had a successful 1st IVF cycle and I gave birth to my son in June of 2010. We froze the leftover embryos. I'm hoping these frozen embryos work for baby #2.

Have any of you gone through the FET process? Did it work for you? I have heard conflicting stories about it.

I'd love to hear your experiences.

Hi. I haven't been on here for months, but was reading messages and saw yours. I also haven't had a FET before, but want to wish you good luck. I am having my first FET on August 25th and am getting anxious. I had my first fresh IVF in January 2011, and miscarried at 7 weeks. I am hoping this time goes better for me! I am going to have 2 embryos transferred on day 3. Last time I had one good quality transferred on day 5, and the docs think I lost it due to OHSS that I had.

Best wishes,

Mindy

I will let you girls know what happens! So excited, and nervous. The progesterone and estrogen shots are getting old and I am so sore, but I know the end result is well worth it! We're transferring two tomorrow at 2pm.

Congrats on your success! How many did you transfer? Do you have a twin pregnancy or a singleton?

Thanks for the good luck wishes! I will let you know how it goes. I am so anxious too. I wish you all the luck in the world. Please keep me posted too. I'd love to hear about your success in Sept, when your + test comes back!

Get used to those shots girl! LOL! I JUST finished about 2 weeks ago!

I transferred 3. A 9 cell that lost 3 cells during the thaw, an 8 cell that lost 1 cell, and a "perfect" 8 cell. All were considered to be top quality. This pregnancy started off as a twin pregnancy but unfortunately one baby stopped growing around 7 weeks. This baby is doing great though:smileyhappy:

I will be checking for your updates. Good luck!

Ooh, GL and KUP! I am starting my FET cycle now w/ a tentative transfer date of 9/29. My RE said their clinic's FET success rate in 2010 was 100%. She said that its higher because a) the embryos that make it to freeze are the strongest, b) the woman isn't undergoing the harsh stim phase, and c) the freezing and thawing technology has improved drastically in the past few years.
So there's big reason to be optimistic.

I am so glad you wrote back mentioning you put in two. I was debating putting in just one in fear of twins. Of course, I'd be blessed to have twins - but I work full time (part of that overnight!) and I am nervous about handling it all. I have a son who will be two when the new baby arrives IF this FET works. I will put in two, and hope that God gives me what I can handle. If it's two, I will be just as happy. But I will be scared. I hope there is enough of me to go around! I will keep you posted on everything.

As for the shots, my doc says if we get a positive pregnancy test,
