Day 1 of FET #1

Just thought I'd announce that ;) I have to admit that I got excited when I knew that today was the day AF would officially arrive as that would mean that I'd be able to go to get my u/s and bloodwork Saturday without a cute boy to accompany me and thus be aware of what we're doing AGAIN. I have to admit I was also excited not to have to get him (ok and myself) up even earlier on a school day to drag him into my appointment before taking him to school (their latest appointments are 7:45am and he has to be at school at 8:20am). And then I realized that unlike my other IVF appointments, this appointment is supposed to be on day 2...which would be tomorrow...which would also be a school day. Crap. Such is life right?

I'm not sure I'll post tomorrow. It's just a baseline appointment, so I'm guessing they're going to check my lining (which would be pretty pointless when you're shedding it right?) and maybe my baseline labs? Well, obviously I haven't found a whole lot of info about this, so maybe I will post it so that others who are curious how their FET may be different from their IVF cycle can have a starting point and a clue. I'll be honest, I looked quite a bit when we decided we were going to go ahead with the FET now, but after becoming overwhelmed with the lack of day 6 FET stories out there, I stopped. I figured it was because maybe there weren't many successful ones, and I just had to get away from those negative thoughts. So, maybe someone searching about day 6 FET's will stumble upon my site, and at least they will be able to have one complete FET to look at for a day 6 blast. Regardless of the outcome, it's better than the "0" I found for completed day 6's out there (maybe day 6 transfers are pretty new like day 5's were a few years back). I pray it's positive so I can share that success and hope with others!


  1. Oh, how exciting! I wish you all the best! I know I'm not out of the woods yet, but FETs can work! Best wishes!

  2. Exciting! Looking forward to reading all about your FET, since we hope to be doing one later this year! :D

  3. Woo Hoo!! You are up and running! sorry you'll have to shuttle your son along with you. I always feel bad for taking my son...just in case their are couples there trying for #1...i don't want to be in there making them feel bad. I've only had to take him twice in my 6 months of hanging out at the Re's.

    Are you over the moon excited?? I'm excited for you. It's finally underway.

  4. Yahoo! You are on your way exciting! Some of my embryos are 6 day'ers too. Some they froze at 5 days, some at 6 days (though they don't know which is whiche...hmmmm?) Can't wait to see how your cycle unfolds. Lots of luck and sticky vibes!!!

  5. If you did not find them, it necessarily does not mean that there are none.

    Super Good Luck, hoping the baseline appointment is the start of a successful FET.

    And yeah scheduling work, and housekeeping and Jack's schedule will be quite the piece of work.

    Take Care!
