Implantation scheduled

Haha, just kidding.

Today I received confirmation, the RE has scheduled our transfer for
next Saturday. Very optimistic of him. Lets schedule implantation
while we're at it!

I've been taking medication for this FET for 4 weeks now. It's almost
as much work as a fresh cycle, except there are no injections and much
less bloodwork and U/S.
There is also no sense of steady progress towards a goal - being transfer.

With a FET, transfer will either happen or it won't, regardless of the
effort I put in now. Given our lousy thaw track record (0 out of 4
embryos survived, over 3 cycles), I can't muster optimism.
So much so, that I've already booked a consult at the Bigger Clinic to
discuss further steps. I may veto FETs for the future.

But you can be optimistic for me all you want.

Thanks, I will. I can see you're not up to it, so I won't try to goad you into joining me. I'll just keep things crossed and wait to hear the updates.

Very best of luck!

Since we aren't currently cycling I feel so out of it, I was all: THEY CAN DO THAT NOW?!?! when I read your title. You tease!!

No Lupron FET? How is this possible.

Optimism in this house for you. Healthy thaw in the mix, followed by implantation you can FEEL to put your mind at ease.

Well, in my experience, not being able to muster a modicum of enthusiasm about a cycle is correlated with success, so I guess I AM optimistic about your cycle, specifically because you are not. Call me contrary;-)

I think your thinking might be right. It seems that the people who have no clue how it works are the ones who can manage to get pregnant. So, if you plan for implantation, you may just get it.

Wow imagine that, if we just could schedule implantation? I envisage some super clinic where we could phone in ahead: "I'll have a rinse and blow wave, a facial, oh and a 4 pm implantation on that nice lookin' embryo I have in storage there!"

Enthusiasm, hope, and optimism a plenty for you here!!

Best wishes!

Hoping it really *is* that simple. :-)

You see FETS were the only thing that worked for me, so I am feeling very optimistic for you.

Well, your post made me laugh hard. I'm holding optimism for you until you can hold it yourself.

Being hopeful for you!

holding your hope; what I do best. Sorry I missed when this went up - I'll be thinking of you.

I think I'd pay another $1,000 to get implantation... You'd think with everything else they can do, why haven't they tried that yet?

GL with the transfer!

That's my favorite thing about this community...we're all here to hope for one another. And just when you reach the point where you a losing hope yourself, we'll hope even harder.

I'm crossing all my crossables for you!

Thanks for the comment on my blog. Good luck for this cycle - may lots of good things come your way!

I used to hate FETs too , because I never got pregnant with one ... until I did! and it only took like 5 FETs to get it done. So you never know
