Well its nice to see some of the folks I was just beginning to get to know in the November Cycle board...but I wish that NONE of us was here.
I am excited though about having company along the way this time as I only discovered this site while I was in my 2ww for my FET. Although being a part of the group caused an obsession with HPTs (to which I only succumbed the day before my Beta...though I never confessed it on the board
) it was really helpful to have the insight of others and share in the joy and pain along the way.
I am not sure when I am cycling again, but it will probably be in March. I meet with the RE next Wednesday to discuss. My main challenges are that we live in a rural area three and a half hours from our clinic and I have a highly demanding job that reuires a lot of travel. So it took some time to coordinate a consultation after our failed November cycle. This is our third attempt at IVF. We do not have insurance but we are blessed with the means to keep trying so we have decided to go with another fresh cycle despite the fact we have 4 3day snowbabies. Reason being is that I am about to turn the dreaded 35
and we want two so I thought we might as well go with a fresh cycle for the better odds and then freeze my 34 year old embies for after my successful pregnancy
I have sent a list of 20 or so questions to my RE which he had a coordinator respond to for me. I was curious about waiting to blast stage and it turns out my clinic is not supportive of it. I guess the embryologist is an adamant believer that the embies are better off in the uterus. Still, I can't help feeling that it would be right for me since I had 8 embies the first time (we transfered 2 each time). Tough call since my RE has the best results in the state (Michigan).
I am excited to report though that the clinic is really supportive of alternative therapy. The doctor supports me taking DHEA this time and will also allow us to bring my acupunturist to the clinic for before and after transfer. So I am staying with them and putting my faith (and money!!!) into their expertise.
SDtrying, JenMink, to have fun, cwehrs- it stinks to be here again...but I am glad we are here together!
Good luck to all.
