Help! 2WW after FET...

I am new to this so I hope I'm putting this in the right place. A little background. I am 39 and we have been TTC for about 6 years. Two miscarriages after getting pregnant naturally and 2 miscarriages both at about 6 weeks after 2 fresh IVF cycles. We had one frozen embryo after our second cycle which we had transferred on 2/15. It was a 5 day blastocyst grade A.

So I am now 7 days post transfer and my first beta is on the 28th. I am FREAKING out because I feel no symptoms whatsoever whereas with both fresh cycles I new I was pregnant for sure before I tested. I know it's early... I have heard that it can take frozen embryos longer to implant and that hcg levels in a frozen cycle can be lower which might account for the lack of symptoms!? I have also heard that because the medication protocol is different for a frozen cycle it all "feels" different. Has anyone had a similar experience? Please help!

I have never done a FET but i could see where it might be different because your body isn't hyped up on as much drugs as it would be for a fresh cycle.

Thanks for your reply... I had planned to try NOT to POAS just because two of my miscarriages were situations where my betas weren't responding or doubling over a two week period and although I might get a positive by POAS it doesn't give me a value per se so I would hate to get my hopes up. It is tempting though considering I have another whole week to wait! AHHH!

hello, I'm just dropping by to say welcome and good luck! I know how intense the 2ww could be, well in your case the 1ww. While I myself have no experience with FET's I agree with Chris I have heard that FET's can be more sucessful because there are less drugs in your system. abay dust to you1
