  1. Hi Ali, I had planned on doing a natural FET this month also (as my first cycle resulted in a chemical pregnancy like yourself) however when I got scanned they thought maybe I had already ovulated, so they got me to do a blood test and it showed I had. Apparently it was too late to do the transfer, so I have to wait and do a hormonal cycle next month. Was so disappointed as normally my cycles are so regular, but this month they behaved very differently to usual... perhaps due to the previous ivf cycle and chemical pregnancy. Anyhow I just wanted to wish you lots of baby dust. Leigh

    1. Woah that's weird! How disappointing! I've been told that my transfer would be booked in for 5 days after I ovulated. I hope they don't give me this news as well, I'd be so angry because they should have monitored more closely. I'm sorry you've had this happen :-(

    2. No I think you will be ok as you have been monitoring it. I do feel quite annoyed with my specialist though because I don't feel like I was told to do opk tests, like you have. I was also scanned by a "trainee specialist" earlier because my actual specialist was on holidays, so I do wonder if he stuffed up. I also feel annoyed at myself for wondering if I had ovulated and not doing a opk test, but it happened on about day 9 so it was very early for me. Oh well, I just think maybe I am meant to wait because I am still getting over the pneumonia they found out I had during my last cycle lol.. oh man.. what a ride hey! I'm sure you will be fine, I hope this one, is the one for you

    3. Now I'm freaking out. I didn't get to see the dominant follicle progress beyond 9mm, and they didn't do a blood test on Thursday. I didn't realise that they could cancel a cycle if they can't pinpoint the exact moment of ovulation (that wasn't explained at all by my nurse). I'll just have to wait and see what they say when they call with my results today.... Hubby just shrugged the whole thing off and said it's better to wait another month and get it right, rather than having the timing wrong and facing another failure. UGH!!!

    4. I'm sorry I didn't mean to freak you out. I think you will be fine. I was the same as you, when I suspected I may be ovulating on the Wednesday (day 8) I thought oh i see them on Friday (day 10) for a scan and if I have ovulated then that should be ok as they want to put it in after ovulation anyway. But then when the trainee guy scanned me on Friday, he said the follicle wasn't big enough & that I'm not ready to ovulate yet & to come back on Monday. I'm not sure what the size was, maybe 12mm. So I go back on Monday and my normal specialist scans me and says theres no sign of me ovulating and he isnt sure when I will ovulate. When I told him that was strange for what I am usually like and that I suspected maybe I could have ovulated earlier as I saw CM, so he said hmm I think you might have went early and sent me off for a test. He then rang to say it was too far past ovulation!! If I had known it was so critical to pin point it I would have been doing the opks from the start. I can't help but think if the trainee guy knew his stuff that Friday was probably the day it needed to be done, but he sent me away. The difference between you and me would be that I needed to have mine put back in day 2 or 3, where as yours are 5 days. So I think you will be fine.

    5. Leigh, the exact thing that happened to you, has just happened to me. I ovulated on CD10!! It's so ridiculous it's actually funny. Thanks for your comments and support. We can cheer each other on next month!

  3. LOL, when I first read your post, I thought it was bad news that you had already ovulated. But then I realized you're doing a natural cycle. Whew! Yay for ovulation! I'm praying for you that timing is spot on for this cycle.
