Post IVF#1

Today we saw our RE to discuss our options and protocol for IVF#2. I am just exhausted with the entire process and ready to explore the idea of a gestational surrogate. However given that we have completed only 1 IVF, RE was pushing for us to do another and possibly a 3rd before going the route of Surrogacy. It is quite an expensive route and has several different components such as the level consequences, medical consequences and the psychological aspect; all of which combine to make for a very trying time. For these reasons, his advice was to hold off on the surrogacy. After the appointment, we spent the afternoon in the Park. Fun but lots of walking and now I am totally pooped.

  1. The first full IVF is the worst. The RE's always say try 3 rounds because most people are successful within three tries. Our 2nd IVF and our 2nd FET's were successful. So, if you decide to keep trying, hang in there, it's gets a little easier.
