IVF #3 is being rebooted this cycle! So, I caved and I’m not doing the proto EPP anymore. I am going to do a Long Lupron cycle. I just want to cycle and I don’t have the energy to be my own RE anymore. So, start Lupron on 12/30. Baseline 1/9. Start stims 1/10. Retrieval around 1/21. I am actually leaning towards a freeze all cycle right off the bat as my fresh statistics are 0 for 2. My frozen statistics are 3 for 3. My TSH always sky rockets after stimulating and I suspect my body has a severe auto immune reaction to the stims that it needs a few months off to recover from. I'd want 1 cycle off then do a FET the following cycle. So probably a March FET. Victor will be well over 3 if this all pans out to give him a sibling. I sure as hell hope they are close later in life even with that kind of age gap. :(

- After an 8 year battle with infertility and countless struggles, our family is finally complete. This blog chronicles the journey it took for us to start and build the family we always wanted. Background on the blog (started in 2012, just days before I found out the embryo transfer for our son worked).... I decided to start a blog after realizing I have only been able to make it through my TWW's (two week waits) with the help of Google and with the openness of other women suffering from infertility sharing their own stories and giving others hope. I have time and time again found my exact symptoms on other women's blogs and felt an overwhelming sense of calmness they provided me. I thought it was time to pay it forward and hopefully provide this same thing to other women on their own journeys.
