Well today was the big day! I went up to Richfield and stayed the night with my friend Shelly so I would not have such a far drive back and forth this morning. As I was making the drive this morning so Many memories came back. I thought about all the many visits from last time we went through IVF. As I walked into the doctors office I had a lot of emotions... It was probably a good thing I was by myself. :)
I was excited to try and get some answers and to find out when we could try again! I got see Dr. Matthews. I was really excited to get to have her as a doctor again. I liked her a lot and she was very encouraging last time. She of course greeted me with a smile and made me feel so welcome.
We started the convo with talk about last cycle. She said we beat a lot of the statistics that were stacked against us based on Brads infertility issues from his previous marriage. She did not even think we were going to have as many eggs fertilize as we did. So she was positive that we had two being frozen. She said that they could not point out a specific reason that it did not work , which is what I thought I would hear. But its ok because she said most of the time when they CAN point out the problem its usually not a good thing. She seemed very positive about our frozen embryos. Yay!
We then moved conversation to our frozen little ones. I have been praying for them! We started talkin about when we would like to do the transfer. Hubby and I had talked about this previous to the appointment and decided that early summer would be the best time. However, that was not going to work with the clinic for different reasons. Sooo... dr. matthews and I sat and talked and talked.... She made the suggestion that we start NOW! I was like oh my! Im not sure that I am ready for NOW! The last time I was in the bed a lot and having to go to the office a lot for appointments/ultrasounds. She then took the time to explain that the frozen process is VERY different and I would not have to have as much time. Two visits and the procedure. Sooo the more we talked about it.... the more I became ok with it. Positives- I wont have to take but one shot this round. It cost less than half of what the first round was and less driving for visits.
Long story short and an hour later... We are going to start everything as soon as I start my next cycle. The main prayer I have now is that the embryos make it through the thawing process. We only have 2, so we have to pray hard that they make it! We won't find out until the day of the transfer if they make it or not....so it will be lots of prayers until then. If everything with my cycle goes as planned we are looking at the first of March for a transfer!! So I guess its time to strap in and hold on... Its time for another Ride!
I know there are other bloggers out there going through IVF right now...You are in my prayers!
