March 2016

I apparently forgot what FET prep actually consisted of and the length of time involved.

Once the contract was a go, the doctor put our GC on Lupron for 2 weeks before she could begin Estrace. After 2 weeks of both Lupron and Estrace, the doctor had her come in for a Pre-Op for the FET and to receive instructions for the transfer. Unfortunately, this appointment fell on one of the very few days I cannot be out of the classroom so I wasn't able to go with her.

We received the Pre-Op instructions at the end of March and the transfer was scheduled for early April!


excitement. fear. anxiousness. although these emotions are far from new, I cannot help being swallowed by each of them. sometimes individually, other times all at once. with 2 embryos left, my fear is forcing me to think about the what ifs...

what if the embryo doesn't survive thawing? 

what if the transfer doesn't yield a positive pregnancy?  or what if NEITHER embryo yields a positive pregnancy?

although a part of me believes it's unfair to think of these scenarios, infertility has robbed me of optimism and guarding my heart keeps me from getting too far into the depths of the dreams I had so long ago.
