After a 2 months of testing and prodding and blood sampling, and waiting, today was the day! Our RE sat us down to talk about next steps. First of all, nothing is wrong, with neither me nor my husband. Which is good news, yet, so frustrating.Why, after 5 years of TTC, don't we have any living children? We fall into the category of "unexplained infertility", she says. Our sweet Henry is the one exception it seems, and hopefully won't remain one.
And yes, she tested EVERYTHING. I did not even know what this possibly could all entail. I am glad it is all done now. So, she proposed IVF with a single-embryo transfer (....ughh!) because my MFM (they are in the same hospital and know each other - I set that up, so all involved have access to all my data at all times) does not allow any multiples! So here we are, excited, yet exhausted and scared. Now the insurance needs to approve, then we'll have a mandatory class at the hospital and help from an assigned social workers who will accompany us for the ride! So, if all goes well, we'll start sometime in Jan/Feb. Until then, we are allowed to keep trying on our own.
Still hoping to get away with the easy way! Keep your fingers crossed, my 2 week wait (after naturally TTC last month) is half way over.
