  1. Hi there, I'm a new follower/here from ICLW. I just wanted to tell you how sorry I am for your recent loss/cycle disappointment. I'm just about a week behind you in my first IVF cycle and so I can really relate! We also had a chemical after our first IUI in February, so I know the torture of that. It is kind of like a silent tragedy, suffering repeat early losses (I've had two as well). I've never seen a heartbeat on an u/s either... it almost feels like my losses aren't as "real" or sad as others who have lost later in their pg. It's kind of a weird place because I do feel worse for them than I feel for myself.

    That all said, I'm glad you have a plan for your FET and how exciting that it will be natural! I feel like that's a great sign for success, putting the embryos back into their normal environment without all the drugs in your system. I'll be following along from now on and keeping my FC for you! So glad you found your smile!! :)

  2. Now this has definitely peaked my interest. I think a natural FET sounds great for your body with no drugs etc. messing things up. I cant wait to follow you through this!

  3. Glad to see you have a plan! I know after my chemical last month, I didn't feel better till I saw the RE and he came striding in the room with a plan, not pity. It's so important for faith and hope to have a plan! Natural FET sounds like a great thing. I would do anything not to have to take the PIO shots again! Its the only thing I am dreading next time!

  4. I am very hopeful for your next cycle! How nice it will be to not have to take any medications. YAY! It's strange to me that you haven't seen your doctor very much. I saw mine all the time and I really felt like he was very involved with our situation. Hmmm...

  5. I love that they're encouraging a natural FET. I wondered during our IUIs and IVFs if *all* the drugs were really necessary. I hope these next 5 weeks fly by and you're on your way to a successful cycle soon!

    PS I am amazed at your strength this past week. A failed cycle is really hard, and you have shown incredible resilience.

  10. Hi, and thank you for stopping by my blog. I would definitely recommend that they monitor you even if it's a natural FET cycle to make sure they catch your ovulation. Also, I'm not sure what kind of coverage you have in Australia but you may want them to do a recurring loss blood panel. My thinking is, why waist your good embryos if there is an underlying issue that you could treat before your next cycle. Obviously the decision is yours, but thought I'd put in my 2 cents. Best of luck!

  11. Me again. After looking back at your history, it does seem premature to do the recurring pregnancy loss test. But something worth keeping in mind.

  12. I'm sorry that your dealing with this, but glad that there's a good plan in place. I would do the monitoring, but thats because i would be afraid to mess it all up using OPKs. Good luck!
