Good to Go for 2nd Frozen Embryo Transfer

September 30, 2009

Today is my cycle day 14 (CD14). So this morning I had ultra sound and blood work done. I called my clinic at noon and the lining is 9mm and estrogen is 2009. The Dr. and nurse said everything looks perfect and the embryo transfer will be Oct 3 as expected.

This time we will transfer 2 3-day ICSI embryos with assisted hatching for both. There has no obvious evidence that assisted hatching (AH) will improve the chance of embryo implantation or live birth. However, the doctor said it is worth to have a try since I have one failed fresh IVF and one FET, plus my age. Some people did finally get pregnant with AH after a few failed IVF cycles. It won’t hurt to try something new as long as it is reasonable.

Since I am doing assisted hatching, to lower the risk of potential affection, I also started to take Medrol 1 tablet daily and Doxycycline (antibiotic) 1 tablet twice a day. These medicine will continue to the day of embryo transfer.

Fingers crossed for this FET.

Baby Talk

September 19, 2009

This morning we planned to visit our friend Betty and her one-month new-born boy. We went to a baby shop to get some gifts. I bought a nice blue baby cloth and a pair of shoes. The baby stuff is so cute! I can’t wait to buy them for my own baby!

It looks like eveyone around me is getting pragnant – in-laws, friends and colleages. Why not me? It’s so frustrated. We’re nice people and we will definitely be good parents. Baby, please don’t let us wait too long…

2nd Frozen Embryo Transfer Started Today

September 17, 2009

AF (period)  eventually came today. It’s 2 days longer than last month. I started one Estrodot patch this afternoon. I will do ultra sound and blood test to check the lining and E2 on Sept 30. If it’s good to go I will do ET (Embryo Transfer) on Oct 3. This time we will transfer 2 3-day ICSI embryos with assisted hatching.

Hope this time we can get pregnant with a healthy baby 🙂

Prepare for 2nd Frozen Embryo Transfer

September 10, 2009

So today we had an appointment with our IVF doctor for about 20 minutes. We will still use the same FET protocol as our 1st FET.

I will start with Estrodot patches on CD1 and then do u/s and blood test on CD14 to check lining and E2. If it’s good to go, then I will start Crinone on CD14. ET will be 3days later since i have 3-day ICSI embryos.

My period this month might be around Sep 15-17. If everything goes well as planned, I will do embryo transfer on around Sep 31 – Oct 2.

We decided to transfer 2 embryos this time and we will also do assisted hatching for both embryos – We will try everything reasonable to get pregnant.

Fingers cross for this FET 🙂
