IVF – Round Three

Hey, lovelies.

Some of you may know that Josh and I had to use in-vitro fertilization (IVF) to have our son.  It was hard, the pregnancy was harder, and it’s taken us a long while (over 3 years!) to get to the point to where we’re comfortable going forward with trying for baby #2 to complete our family.

We decided that this year was the year. Logan’s 99% potty trained (still has a few accidents at night) and he’s a huge help to me around the house. Well, as much help as a toddler can be, anyway.

So, we decided to go forward with another cycle… and, well, it didn’t work. We tried a fresh cycle in July/August, transferred one blastocyst, and it didn’t take.  Weirdly, while I was sad, I wasn’t overly upset. Josh was the same, I think, though both of us were understandably disappointed. We want a second child and, to be frank, this process is just bleeping expensive!

The clinic made us take a month off, but we’re back in cycle again (as of the 10th!) and moving forward with a frozen transfer. The medications are different this time, thank the sweet wonderful goodness, but I’m still not looking forward to daily injections, sometimes twice daily, and hormonal supplement pills and…ugh!  …That’s not a complaint. Really, it’s not. I’m just venting a little, I suppose. This process is GOING to work this time. I have to have faith that the doctors will make it happen.

If you want to follow along with the process, check back here.  I’ll be doing once-a-week updates on the process, or more if things get cray-cray.
