So, we had our WTF appointment yesterday and even the Dr was surprised things didn’t work out.
Or so he said. But, then… you know… women my age…
He was impressed that all five of our embryo’s made it to day five. Not many women my age, um, and younger, have that luxury. Thing is, he figured that that probably, again, BECAUSE OF MY AGE, only one of those blasts will actually result in a real live, keeping me up all night baby.
He has suggested that we just do a natural cycle – cheaper, and almost no medication. Just a couple OPK pee sticks, a ultrasound on day 12, a trigger shot, and … the installation.
You know, like an art installation with valium and bed rest.
So, now, even though he thinks we only have one good blast in the batch, he would suggest we transfer them in two batches in two separate months. His thinking is that this A.) means less a risk of twins should there be two good ones, and B.) less a risk that some other non-embryo issue take out the whole batch – ie, bad lining or other “just not your month” issue.
Because he is pretty certain there is a low risk of multiples, he would, if we wanted to save money, just transfer them all in one swoop.
So.. what to do? What to do? Just throw them all in for one round, $2K, and get it over with? Or… be patient, do two rounds, spend the extra $2k and slightly increase the odds of success and decrease the odds of multiples.
I think I answered my own question there. I mean, what’s another $2k in the Vacation Home Sized Expenditures we’ve already put out.
Either way, between trips to Disney, Portland, San Diego and my baby sisters wedding, we aren’t going to be able to do anything until September.
Uhg! OMFG. More waiting! It’s been a year since the miscarriage and I feel like the entire time, I’ve done nothing but put my life on hold and try to get preggers again.
