So I am almost off sea duty just a few short weeks with some days off in between and several weeks off before checking into my new command and I am on Calendar Day 2. I called the clinic yesterday and made an appt for my SHG and will start my birth control pills Tues (CD 4). The last time I went through IVF, I was a nervous wreck and it was 5 years ago. I remember the overall procedure and everything but dont recall much of a timeline and with an FET - its slightly different. I wondered if you ladies who have already been through FET's could help me out? The lady at the doctor's office basically told me that it takes roughly 5-6 weeks but cant really give me a date and we will talk about it when I go in for my next appt. I understand she cant give info over the phone and thats part of the point of the appt but I am trying to have an idea of when I can expect to the do the transfer. I know it can vary but from your experience with 5 day blasts - what is your experience, timeline wise, of how your FET went?
On a separate note, I told myself and my husband (who is currently in Afghanistan but will be home for his 2 weeks R/R in December) that we will go through it - go big or go home... thaw all embryos and transfer as many as the doctor will allow (I am thinking thats 3) and if it isnt successful we will be ok with that. I am 32 and really, I dont know if I want to go through anymore fertility treatments after this. To be fair, I did tell my husband that I was open to doing another IVF cycle or whatever he wanted to do but really I dont know if emotionally, or financially we can do it. I was ok up until Calendar Day 1 actually came and then I was online trying to read success stories and Facts on FET's and how would I feel if its not successful and automatically started freaking out! I dont want to set myself up for disappointment and am trying to be realistic but you know you cant help but to be emotional and invested when it comes to this. I emailed my husband and just asked him to let me deal with this on my own. If he wants to know how the appt go or anything, its not that I wont tell him, i just would prefer to not make a big deal out of it in case it doesnt work. I think he understands and probably didnt mind.
So any advice, stories, experiences with FET would be much appreciated!! Thank you
