So its officially, a new record, its the first time I’ve ever made it to 8 days past a 5 day transfer. At the start of my 2ww, I kept saying that if I could make it to today without bleeding or spotting then I’d have reason to be hopeful. Obviously, that is not the case, not with all the negative home tests. I’m feeling resigned to whatever the outcome will be, I know I have no control over it, I just want to get it over with now so that I can move on an start with my Plan B. At least I’ve managed to get a grip on my emotions, I will hopefully not spend the day dealing with bouts of tears.

I have ZERO symptoms, aside from AF type cramps which have been coming and going since the weekend, however, Friday is CD28 of my natural cycle, so I anticipate seeing spotting within the next day or so.

Its a small consolation, and one that I don’t put too much faith in, but I’m grateful to at least still have my 7 frozen embryo’s so that we can do something in the next couple of months while we prepare for another fresh IVF later this year. I mean, how many people really get pregnant from FET’s?

    I would like to lie to you and say I have never heard of babies from FETs but I can’t… my good real life friend has had 3 babies through FET… two fresh cycles failed but the FETs stuck… 1st one was her 3 yo son and the twins are 18mos.

    Have a forum friend who had 5 failed IVFs and was doing the FET just to get ins to cover another IVF? yeah. twins.

    I am sorry that things don’t look up for you this cycle. Sorry is hardly the word. But I am not done praying.. I won’t stop until you hold your own. Just know that you are being held up.

    Sharon, you definitely have lots of positive’s in your favour for future attempts should this round not be successful. FET’s can and do work and besides that you respond so well to stimulation and your uterus is 100% ok now so I think it’s just a matter of how many ivf’s or FET’s you can handle or afford until you have success. I really am positive for you and I still believe it’s not over till it’s over for this cycle. It’s very hard, I know. Thinking of you and how anxious you must be.

    FET’s do work for some people Shaz, I know of 3 people myself who they have worked for… Of those 3 you know 2 of them from FC…

    Typical rainbow fart moment here but I’m still holding out for a miracle too.

    Blah. I’m sorry…To have made it this far only for a crash landing is so unfair.

    Thinking of you a lot. I really hope that those HPT`s were crap, like they usually are. What if this is the same situation Mich was in before (and after) she got her BFP with the blood test?? Remember she still got negatives even after her pg was confirmed with the bloods?

    I sincerely hope that that is the case, and that you will still get a BFP, despite the predictions of the money-making-scheme-sticks.

    Lots of positive vibes!!

    popping over from LFCA to say how sorry i am to read about the (-) hpts.

    frozen transfers DO work, i am newly pregnant from one. many clinics actually have better success rates from frozen cycles because the embryos that make it through freezing/thawing are the strongest/healthiest of the bunch. having 7 in storage is a good sign too!

    wishing you lots of luck with your next cycle!

    I’m sorry about the negative HPTs… ugh. But I’m glad you’re thinking of Plan B, C and D… its pretty much what keeps me going. FETs are awesome. There are so many people out there in IVF-land that have had live children from FETs. Our daughter who was our biggest success ever was from an FET.

    Hoping this cycle surprises the fuck out of you!!

    Hang in there hugs,
