Egg retrieval 1 October, 2 frosties. Retrieval 2 January Zero eggs survived thaw process - FET Cancelled. FET - Feb. Thank you all for your encouraging words. I feel a lot more hopeful! Let's keep those success stories going!!! Good luck to all the mamas with babies on the way. May your beautiful blessings arrive safely! I am pregnant from my third transfer 2nd FET. I also prayed a great deal and didn't think too much about it. Previous transfers, I followed all the so-called success tips like, eating warm foods, keeping feet warm, eating pineapple core, bed rest for 48 hours.
This time hubby and I went to the mall and out to lunch after transfer, I rested for a day and got back to life. Not sure if that made the difference, maybe it was just our time. I also continued to think, "third time is a charm" - that gave me lots of hope. Good luck to you.

July in Pregnant after IF. Anyone had success after a frozen egg transfer? We're getting ready to do 4 and our final try. Is there anything you did that you think helped you be successful? My doctor is having me do progesterone in oil injections this time around and I am VERY nervous about this. Report 0 Reply to Post.We strive to provide you with a high quality community experience.

My brother-in-law we just found out only had success during fresh transfers, not frozen, which has me nervous to start my next FET. I have a two year old son from a three day fresh transfer. We have done six retrievals and these two are our last chance for a sibling. We are trying one at a time.
So nervous!! I wish you good luck!! My clinic actually had a higher success rates with frozen transfers. Fresh transfers were not an option for us. My husband and I were considered unexplained. Good luck. Eventually I stopped the lupron and started progesterone and then transferred on Nov And I will echo what another poster said, I did acupuncture the day of transfer couple hours after and another session 48 hours after.
Thanks for the reply!! How long did you take Lupron for?!
Symptoms After Embryo Transfer – Most Common Positive Signs
Just the month of transfer or did you have to take it longer?? Anything to up the chances. Please don't lose hope!
I was completely devastated and thought I would never have our rainbow baby. Didn't wait any time before trying FET 2, and I'm extremely happy to say we had our healthy baby boy on June 5, ! I tried to relax more, I did do acupuncture which they said helps relieve stress and improve circulation. I'm not sure if it worked or not, but at that point I was willing to try anything. Sending you lots of luck and baby dust I know this is an old post, but I was hoping you would tell me more about acupuncture?
I've read that having acupuncture the same day as the transfer may help with implantation. Is that what you did? I'm currently waiting to get PGS testing done on 2 frozen embryos so trying to stay positive that they are normal and go through with the transfer.
I made many many changes in my protocols between transfers. My second transfer first transfer to use acupuncture worked but miscarried and my third worked as well giving me twins. I did acupuncture before and after the transfer.
And was a couch potato for 48 hours after transfer. Thanks for replying! How did you find the acupuncture location? Was this through your RE Clinic?!After you have completed a frozen embryo transfer, next comes the two-week wait. This is the day period during which embryo implantation is expected to occur. If you become pregnant, your levels of the pregnancy hormone human chorionic gonadotropin hCG will begin to rise, and you will begin to notice pregnancy symptoms.
If implantation is successful and you become pregnant, you may experience some of all of the following symptoms:. Spotting may occur during the first five days following embryo transfer. It is caused by elevated hormone levels. You may notice that your breasts become softer, firmer, or more swollen than usual.
Your nipples may feel more tender, and your areolas may become darker. The increase in your hCG level can lead to a constant urge to urinate. This can be due to pregnancy but may occur if you have been using hormone shots after implantation. Increasing hormones can also lead to nausea, or morning sickness, though not all pregnant women experience this.
It is common to feel tired during the early stages of pregnancy. Fatigue is thought to be caused by increased levels of the hormone progesterone. Symptoms such as nausea, sore breasts, and fatigue usually pass after the first trimester.
Three months might seem like a long time to have to deal with those symptoms so here are some tips to help you get by:. Eating smaller, more frequent meals can help calm morning sickness. You might also want to try skipping spicy or strong-smelling foods or soothing your stomach with ginger.
Your breasts are changing as the milk ducts form. The best way to find relief is to get fitted for a new bra that will comfortably accommodate these changes. If you feel tired, get some rest. Your sleeping pattern change as your pregnancy develops. During a successful pregnancy, you will notice pregnancy symptoms around two weeks after embryo transfer.
Typically, the symptoms will pass after a few months, so you can continue to enjoy your pregnancy. Common pregnancy symptoms after frozen embryo transfer If implantation is successful and you become pregnant, you may experience some of all of the following symptoms: Vaginal discharge Spotting may occur during the first five days following embryo transfer.
Missed period An absence of menstruation is one of the earliest signs that you are pregnant.We are Team Pink x 2!!EARLY PREGNANCY SYMPTOMS BFP - BABY #1 - IVF SUCCESS
I had a boy and girl frozen 5 day blastocysts transferred. I feel like I started having symptoms that evening. My uterus was mildly burning for lack of a better explanation and I felt a pinch that night and again the next morning. Since then I have just had some aching in my lower back, a constant mild headache, and sore nipps.
I would blame most of it on hormones I'm taking, but I can only blame the nipps on that since I have been taking hormones for weeks now and the other symptoms started the evening after the transfer.

Success after FET?

April in Pregnant after IF. Hi Ladies! Popping in from IF and waving hello to you all! Or are you supposed to feel any? My first IVF all embryos were abnormal and my second one I have 1 normal, healthy XY embie I am super anxious and would love any feedback.
Thank you all very very much in advance. Report 0 Reply to Post.Skip to main content. Menu Search Account. Search form Search. Posted on Wed, What a journey. First of all, no one symptom set me off. I have had my hopes up in the last 2 years only to be let down when AF arrived. I am beyond grateful, and so hopeful for a successful 9 months of pregnancy. This was our first round of IFV.
We did a FET because I overstimulated during our egg retrieval. We transferred one 5 day embryo grade 4AAA. The pulling started on the left side and proceeded to move to the middle and right side.
My stomach felt really tight like if I sneezed it felt like I pulled a muscle. This may have been my 1 symptom. I would be driving and then come to a stop sighn and then BAM it would hit me. I had to hold on to my counter on day 6pt for fear of falling over. Sore throat and stuffy nose.
Crazy dreams. It feels more like being car sick to me than stomach bug sick.
Like when your reading in the back seat of a car. Also my nipples got bigger and darker on 7dpt. On 8dpt my nipples got very sensitive and I actually flinched taking off my bra. More hungry than usual for sure. I always second guessed myself. I just figured some of these were from progesterone and estrogen and they may have been. The one thing that gave me hope was the 5 days leading up to transfer when I was on all of my medications I had no unusual symptoms.
No cramps or sore breast or nausea. So when I started to feel these things it gave me a little hope. I prayed so often and so hard.You may be hyper-aware of everything going on in your body, worrying about every cramp or odd twinge you feel.
You're also likely to have many questions. Are cramps after an embryo transfer a good sign or a bad sign? What about spotting? We've got answers to these common questions. Cramping can strike fear in the hearts of some IVFers and hope in others. Fear, because they worry this is a sign their period is coming or that maybe the cycle has failed.
Hope, because maybe cramps are a sign of implantation and maybe they're pregnant. Here's the good and bad news: mild cramping and pelvic discomfort are very common.
Cramping during IVF shouldn't be seen as a sign of your coming period nor as a possible sign of pregnancy. The medications and procedures of IVF make quite an impact on your reproductive organs. If you get pregnant, the pelvic discomfort may go on for a few more weeks.
Also, the egg retrieval procedure and the later embryo transfer can cause slight cramping in the days immediately after. These may be signs of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome OHSS or ovarian torsion. These conditions require immediate medical attention.
Light spotting is relatively common. According to available research, it occurs in 7 to 42 percent of IVF cycles. You may experience light spotting after egg retrieval, after embryo transfer, or later in your luteal phase.
While you should report any unusual bleeding to your doctor, spotting alone is not necessarily a good or bad sign. Implantation spotting is said to be caused by an embryo implanting itself into the uterine wall. Another possible cause for spotting is progesterone supplementation via vaginal suppositories. Vaginal progesterone suppositories can cause the cervix to be extra sensitive. If you have sexual intercourse, you may experience light spotting, but this is nothing to worry about.
Common practice has been to ask couples to abstain from sexual intercourse during part or all of an IVF treatment cycle. Some doctors are concerned that sex may lead to infection or interfere with embryo implantation.
However, other doctors think it's fine and even recommend sex after IVF. As always, consult with your doctor if you're unsure if you should engage in sexual intercourse. A study in Australia decided to look at whether sexual intercourse is harmful to the IVF process.
Not only did they find that sexual intercourse wasn't harmful, they found that couples who had sex around the time of embryo transfer had higher viability rates at 6 to 8 weeks post transfer. The study showed that semen seems to play a positive role in embryo implantation and development. Prescribing bed rest to women after embryo transfer was once common practice. Bed rest suggestions ranged from lying down for just 10 minutes post transfer to five days of convalescing.When a couple has difficulty conceiving a child, several assisted reproductive technologies are available to achieve a successful pregnancy.
Symptoms after FET?
One of these methods is a two-step process that involves fertilization of a woman's egg with her partner's sperm in the laboratory, called in vitro fertilization -- IVF -- followed by implantation of the resulting embryo in her uterus. The first signs of successful implantation and early pregnancy generally appear by about two weeks after the procedure.
When the embryo implants into the uterine wall, small capillaries in its lining may be damaged and bleed. This can cause spotting or a small amount of bleeding, although it might also be absent or not noticeable after embryo transfer. A woman could also experience some minor cramping as the embryo implants. On the other hand, many women experience neither bleeding nor cramping. One of the other early signs of pregnancy, whether from assisted technology or a pregnancy that results naturally, is a missed period.
A woman who's undergone embryo transfer might notice several other changes within two weeks of the procedure, although most of these physical symptoms appear later if they appear at all. Her breasts might become swollen or tender, or feel sore when touched, changes that reflect increases in female hormones during pregnancy.
Sometimes, the tenderness subsides after a few weeks, but then returns later in pregnancy as the breasts grow and put pressure on their supporting ligaments.
The sudden rise in hormones could also cause headaches during the first weeks, although many women don't have this symptom. A woman might also experience nausea, or morning sickness, although this sign might not appear until later in the pregnancy, or not at all.
Some signs that an embryo transfer has been successful can be extremely subtle. For example, a woman might feel slightly fatigued, a sign that can appear as early as the first week or two, and she might find herself taking a nap or a quiet rest during the afternoon. It's also quite normal for a woman to have no change in how she feels and no clear sign that anything special is going on in her body after a successful embryo transfer. She may not have any cramping or spotting, especially if the embryo implants high up on the uterine wall, and other signs of pregnancy may not develop until later, a potentially stressful situation while she waits for testing to confirm that she's pregnant.
Generally, a couple who has undergone IVF and embryo transfer isn't sure of the procedure's success until about one or two weeks after it's completed. The first test to determine whether implantation has occurred involves measurement of a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin, or HCG, which is produced by the cells surrounding the embryo. This measurement is usually made during the first week or two, but can be inconclusive until later stages and may be repeated every few days and accompanied by other testing, such as an ultrasound exam.
Research into more specific testing, published in the July issue of "The Journal of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics" suggests that measurement of a specific form of HCG called hyperglycosylated HCG could provide an extremely sensitive and reliable test for pregnancy as early as six days after embryo transfer. If you have questions about pregnancy testing or other aspects of embryo transfer, discuss them with your doctor.
