Started meds for FET!!!

Big news here at the Yellow Room. After a ttc break, we went to the RE yesterday just for a consultation. Our usual RE left in August to take a job in Atlanta, so we went to meet our new doctor (in the same practice) and see what his recommendations were. He was so nice and started by giving us a pep-talk and telling us that he knows we'll be successful; we just need to have patience and persistence. He said since we're young, healthy, and have good quality eggs/sperm, we have lots of things going for us that will ultimately lead to a baby.

My main questions for him were about my chemical pregnancy and my miscarriage and why they happened. I said I was interested in more tests, although I knew Mr. C. wasn't as excited about more testing since we've done so much already. The RE said he's all about compromise and would give me the moderate RPL panel of tests and not the whole panel. He'll be testing for the more common, treatable problems that could give us an answer. I had my blood drawn this morning and we should get the results in the next 2-3 weeks.

After he spoke to us about our frozen embryos and how the FET process works, we decided to just go ahead and do it! I don't have to wait for my next AF or anything, he said to start the BCPs yesterday, take them for 3 weeks, then take estrogen and progesterone for around 3 weeks, then have the transfer! Mr. C. and I did not go in expecting to start this process that very day, but we talked about it and are both ready to get this party started! I'm nervous, but excited. We are not telling ANYONE in real life, so only you blog friends get to know our secret!

BTW, we have 2 frozen embies - one 4AA and one 4AB...great quality! If both survive the freeze, he gives us a 40% chance of pregnancy. Not great, but we'll take it!

Congratulations Kelly on moving forward with the FET. I just found out yesterday at our 7 week u/s that we had a blighted ovum so I am very curious to hear about the RPL tests that you go through. Please let us know, I am praying for all good results for you!!!!

I know what courage you had to muster to start again. It looks like we may be close to cycle sisters. I started BCP's a few weeks ago for my first FET. I said 40% is worth trying. I hope that ends up true in the end for both of us.
