And then we wait

Well try # 8 was a bust. I did the math finally at it was 3 at home ICI’s, 3 unmedicated IUI’s and 2 medicated IUI’s. With the 2 medicated IUI’s J released 2 eggs each time and still didn’t get pregnant. When we met with our RE last week she said that based on what we’ve done so far (that hasn’t worked) the chance that, at this point, a medicated IUI will result in pregnancy for us is less than 8% a cycle. So, we decided to move forward with IVF.

When AF first came, J (who was away for work at the time) texted and said I should carry. Then next morning she texted and said she wanted to do IVF. This whole time she’s been really not interested in doing IVF. No way, no how. But evolution is a funny thing I guess. She wants a kid that shares her genetics and I want one that shares her genetics too. I do think she is pretty amazing after all.

We had an overwhelming and positive IVF consult appointment last week. It was SOOOO much information. My step-brother is getting married next month, and it was already CD 8, so we had to push our timeline back quite a bit. What’s a few more weeks when you’ve been trying for 10 months? So J will start the protocol next cycle and we’ll cross our fingers that we are in the 65-70% that will get pregnant. She still has to get an AMH test done and we have no clue how we are really going to pay for it, but we’re jumping in.

Any IVF tips, reading recommendations, suggestions, support are welcome.

In Nature Boy news, the other day he said he was a boy, that J was a boy and when asked if I was a boy or a girl he said “milkies” hahaha that’s all I am to him 😉

He also recently said that he and I both have green peacocks living in our belly buttons.

And that grandma is the President of the U.S.

Toddlers are awesome and he’s so much fun.

    IVF is exciting and terrifying! The best advice I can offer about IVF is to relax and go with the flow. It’s hard. The shots are hard, but the hormones are harder. The constant monitoring is a total PITA and completely maddening because it becomes so obsessive. Hopefully, J will respond well and everything will go smoothly!

    Good luck with the transition to IVF. I don’t have any personal advice or stories, but wish you two the best of luck.

  3. IVF was really….crazy for us! It all went so quickly, so really the only advice i have, similar to Molly up top is, relax…It’s a lot of work and a lot of timing, and a lot of ouchies, but once it’s done, it moves a lighting speed, and hopfully, at 70+% chance of pregnancy, it’ll happen soon enough. Can’t wait to follow your IVF journey!
