FET Dates Update

I spoke with my nurse the other day regarding when they expect I will start on "fertility drugs" since my copay will be due 10 days prior. As it turns out, my estimation of date for transfer is incorrect. It will be later. More of a wait (God is now testing my patience to see how that is developing).

According to my nurse, here is my tentative plan. Take the BCP's for a little over 3 weeks with the last pill being around April 10th. My baseline appointment will be around the 14th or 15th. My last appointment should be April 28th-ish. And transfer is tentatively scheduled for May 6th. I'm actually not upset with the date being pushed back. The reason for that is because I work literally almost every single weekend (Fri, Sat, Sun), either all of it, or part of it. This means it's not exactly ideal to find a switch, or to have the whole weekend for "bedrest" with my butt up on a pillow hoping one or both of those embryos will implant.

I'm scheduled to work May 6th, but currently working on finding a switch, and I'm scheduled off that weekend. I think we'll be renting alot of movies.

Of course, I've been on the pill for a week now and I hate it. I'm trying to be good and at least keep from gaining a few more pounds with all of the drugs and emotions, however, the stinking pill makes me so hungry. I'm loading up on fruits, and veggies, but I have to really be careful because the other day I sat down with a bag of cheese curls and before I knew it, 3/4 of the bag was gone. I can't do that or I'll be as big as a house by the time I'm done. I can't wait to be off the pill and onto the next step (aka shot)!


  1. This sounds great that you can rest all weekend by having that date! I know it is awhile to wait just do all the fun things you wouldn't if you were pregnant! Take care

  2. Did the BCPs always make you that hungry? I seemed to tolerate BCPs fairly well. And no, you will never be as big as the house.

    Wishing you the very best for the FET.

    Tell me, do babies with Meconium aspiration always end up dead...what is that one thing that if you know this is what the baby has had, sets off warning lights in you. I probably just asked a stupid question.

  3. Isn't it amazing that with modern science they can tell you that...good luck with everything! I am about to start my first IVF cycle and I have a four year old, too. Feel free to check out my blog!

  4. Although you are doing an FET, seems we may be on the same cycle! my ETA ET will be around May 6th. =) great to find someone to 'cycle' with!

  5. Love you mama, wishing the very best of outcomes ;)
