We’re heading into our second round of IVF in October, and I’m getting anxious. I know that I shouldn’t be, but I thought I’d go ahead and get this thread started, hoping it makes me feel better!
Our first IVF was a near total failure. We had 11 eggs retrieved, but only two of them made it to a day 5 transfer, and we had nothing left to freeze. I thought that would be our only round, but we’ve somehow talked ourselves into being able to “afford” one more go, using credit. So here we go!
… no med protocol yet, which is killing me. I know it’s way too early to start shots, but I’m not looking forward to those early morning needles to start the day, or the PIO shots to end the day!
… started bcp to control preliminary cycle, but don’t even know if I should be expecting one more cycle before the actual IVF cycle. I would assume so, but what do I know?
… the fear of the unknown is the worst part. Knowing what we went through, and the results; not knowing what/how much my protocol will change and whether or not it will make a difference; knowing that after it is all said and done, either way, we’ll have a credit card bill to pay off.
Anyone else out there, gearing up for an October cycle, feeling the same way?! I’m trying not to drive my DH crazy as we restart this seemingly never ending waiting game!
