When hubby and I started our journey to grow our family, we knew that it would be a difficult journey. Knowing that and actually accepting that, I’ve learned, are two very different things. After a failed IUI, a pregnancy loss following our first round of IVF and two failed Frozen Embryo Transfers, we entered IVF round 2 with caution.
After our first IVF and FET cycles did not result in successful pregnancy, we decided that we wanted to try a Natural FET for our remaining embryos.
One of the main reasons we selected a Medicated FET was the ability to control the cycle and predict when the transfer date would occur.
After our IVF cycle resulted in a miscarriage, my husband and I were faced with what to do next. Our next step was a frozen embryo transfer, but what kind?
If you make a batch of cookies that are absolutely amazing and you freeze the remaining cookies, when you unfreeze them, the cookies will still be pretty delicious.
All that I heard from the entire discussion was “incompatible with life”. Before we even knew we were pregnant, it had already been decided that we would never hold our child in our arms, only in our hearts.
