Looking For Signs

I remember just prior to starting my last IVF, I was checking out the IVF/FET Hitlist on Fertilicare and feeling really unsettled by the poor stats, I even blogged about (read that posting here). Well today I was updating the stats and I’m hoping that the distinct change in success rates is boding well for my upcoming FET. In the past 3 months, we’ve had 20 recorded IVF’s/FET’s on the forum. Of those 20, only 4 were negative, 2 were cancelled, 2 resulted in chemical pregnancies, 2 are unaccounted for AND 10 resulted in positive pregnancies.That’s a 50% success rate!

Now, as you know, this journey has made me (and I think a lot of my IF sista’s) superstitious and in the build up to a treatment and during treatments, we often look for signs. Well I’m really hoping that the stats above bode well for my FET!

    Those are great stats.

    My best wishes are with you for the FET. Murgdan too got a BFP from the FET.

    I’ve also been noticing the BFP’s and specifically those through IVF/FET and everytime I see one I think of you and the other ladies and hope to see your BFP’s soon!

    I have been reading your posts and your blog with interest for some time now and, amongst all the signs, superstitions and insecurities, there is one thing you can be confident about:
    You have it all in you to be a great mum !

      When we were in the jaccuzzi @ the spa on Sunday, there were these 3 rainbows that kept appearing on my left arm! I reckon it was just a reflection of the water, however, Rainbow Farty SCY believes that they were a “sign” and you know… I love signs!!! πŸ™‚

    LOL – I was driving behind a car today and the registration was FBP xxx and I figured that is pretty close to BFP so maybe its time to start thinking about ivf #3!!!

    Well my dear…as you know my thoughts on FET were similar. After all…not only have they been frozen, but they were my ‘loser’ embies. The slow ones. I know I haven’t made it very far…but for now I’m a FET believer. What do ya know? This stuff works sometimes….

    Hoping FET is the magic for you.
