    Default It's been awhile... (m/c, child ment.)

    Since I've been on the boards. A quick update on me - Riley is officially a toddler and keeping us all on our toes. He's awesome!

    But I wanted to let everyone know that we're doing a FET on Thursday. I only have one snow pea leftover from Riley's cycle. I know the chances aren't great (heck, they're not even good), but DH and I really want a sibling for Riley. Compared to my two fresh IVF cycles and the two donor cycles, this FET cycle has been a total breeze. But now my fears are starting to set in. What if our one embie doesn't survive the thaw? What if it doesn't implant? Or worse, what if I miscarry for the 8th time? Realistically, I know that we have such a slim chance of this working, but I still find myself daydreaming about a LO.

    Anyway, I'll keep you posted on Thursday. Hope everyone is doing well!

    Great to hear from you Christi!!! Good luck with your FET on Thursday. With everything you've been through it's so easy to think of all the negatives. Hoping for a positive result from this. Keep us posted!

    Update on the FET: The transfer went smoothly!

    The embryo survived the thaw and was starting to expand at the time of the transfer. They don't "regrade" embryos after a thaw, but when this embie was originally frozen, it was graded a "BBB" blastocyst. So, the first letter is a grade from A to F on how the fetal cells look. The second letter is a grade from A to F on how the placental cells look. And the third letter is a grade from A to F on how the "zona" looks. The embryologist said "BBB" is very good. In fact, Riley was a "BCC" blastocyst when he was transferred two years ago.

    The transfer itself was very standard. I was given a valium (which didn't help my nerves at all), taken to the surgical suite, and the doc transferred the embie. It took maybe 20 mins total. The doc graded the transfer as "easy with no complications". Then I was taken back to the recovery room, where I stayed for 45 mins and was sent home.

    I stayed in the bed for the rest of the day yesterday, but I've been up working today. The nurse yesterday said that there are new studies that show that women don't need to stay on bedrest for more than the day of the transfer, so that's their new policy.

    So, I'm PUPO as far as I'm concerned. My beta is March 10, but I'll probably POAS early. I got a BFP on a HPT at 5.5dp5dt with Riley, so I'll at least wait until then. No symptoms so far! Wish me luck!

    Congrats on being PUPO!!! Sounds like everything went about as perfect as it could. That's awesome you had such a great graded embie. Can't wait to see your updates. Are you going to keep us updated when you POAS and obsess symptoms here?
