FET #1

Wow. I didn't realize I hadn't posted in over a month! Sorry about that... I've been pretty disconnected from the online IF community while prepping for this FET.

Which happened this morning. We transferred one female grade 6AB fully hatched genetically perfect embryo.

Transfer was easy. I've finally (on transfer #5) figured out how much water to drink to fulfill the requirement of having a "full" bladder without making myself miserable. Turns out it's 1/3 of a bottle of water.

I'm on the couch, where I've been all afternoon, and get to start puttering around tomorrow.

Since the embryo is fully hatched, implantation would be tonight or tomorrow morning, but my beta is still 10 days away on Sunday, March 11. Which happens to be a weekend we're spending entirely with family... (none of whom know we're in cycle - we stopped telling people those sorts of details after miscarriage #2). So for the first time, I'm seriously considering POAS on Friday the 9th. We'll see...

Our donor arrives in town in two weeks for her second cycle - so right after I find out if this one worked, we'll have the rollercoaster of following her numbers too.

It's hard to think that this could work - it's been so long since we've had good news. At least I know to completely ignore symptoms or the lack thereof.


  1. I'll be thinking of you and hoping your little embie snuggles in for a nice long stay! :-)

  2. Good luck to you!

  3. So hopeful for you! I say POAS on the 9th- better to deal with the news either way before seeing family. I'll be thinking of you!!

  4. Best of luck! Hoping this one is it!

  5. Fingers Crossed!!

  6. Thinking of you during your TWW! Hoping you get some wonderful news soon!

  7. Thinking of you, especially considering today is the 9th!!!

    1. We decided to POAS on Sunday morning so a potential BFN doesn't ruin our whole weekend. And that way we can spend Sunday without being super anxious waiting for the Phone Call. :)

  8. Thinking of you and keeping my fingers crossed!!!!
