Lilypie Trying to Conceive Event tickers


For those that aren't too familiar with the Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) procedure, I can only offer an explanation based on my experience.  After going through In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) about two years ago, my DH and I had two remaining embryos that we had the option to preserve for use in the future, either if the first time wasn't successful or if we just wanted to try for another baby.  We obviously chose to keep them and have them cryopreserved just in case.  Now, since my first pregnancy resulted in miscarriage, we are looking to try again.  This is basically the timeline I'm following but it's not the same for everyone because we all respond differently to the meds so don't fret about the specifics, your doctor will determine what is best for you.  ;-)  So if you are reading this and it's still being updated, wish me luck!!
