6 weeks pre-FET

We have about 6 weeks until we go back to Colorado to meet our embryos!  As my mother in law said "I hope they are not too cold" without me.  I think about them all the time.  I bought our plane tickets yesterday.

I think my hormones are wackadoodle from last month's rollercoaster.  I have been using my clear blue easy ovulation predictor and and I am on Day 12 and no signs of ovulation yet.   I bled for a much longer time this month.  I hope I ovulate, so my progesterone is the right level for me to start lupon on Day 21 of this cycle.  Did anyone have issues with the first cycle after IVF?

It's kind of sad that we can't try this month, but then again it takes the stress down a level. We had to buy condoms, because our the ones we had expired a long time ago!

Well, I survived my sister in law's wedding weekend!  It was fun, but slightly exhausting.  I kept thinking that I am so glad I'm not pregnant right now.

One of the bridesmaids had 8 month old twins from IUI, so I talked to her alot about what twins are like. She seems to be coping pretty well.
I just found out one of my sister's friends is cycling at CCRM this month, so I am excited for her.
Infertility is everywhere I look nowadays.

I am so happy for Sooz over at


  1. Six weeks will be here before you know it! Are you planning on transferring two?

  2. Hey Jen - yes - we are transferring two! I think I will freak out if I actually get pregnant with twins, but part of me wants to, so we can be done !

  3. How exciting! I know six weeks seems like a long time, but it'll fly by once you start doing all the meds.

    I didn't start my FET until a couple months after my IVF, so I didn't check my progesterone levels. I just remember my cycles after IVF being a bit weird and ovulating a little later than usual, so I don't think that's anything out of the ordinary.

  4. My cycle was weird but I can't remember how so. I do remember AF came a lot sooner than I thought after ER.

    That's exciting that you decided to transfer two! And yes although twins can be overwhelming they can also be amazing (I have a good friend with twins).

  5. Great news to get a calendar and when you can finally see the light at the end of this tunnel. Hope you get your twins!

  6. So excited things are booked and rolling already!! Hoping this will be it for you!!
