We took a trip to visit the IVF Doctor today. It was an appointment to go over a little of what had happened and what we would try differently the next time.
She explained that there was both good and bad in our attempt to conceive a child.
It didn’t work… of course. And there is no way of knowing ‘why’.
And 5 follicles, 3 eggs, and 2 fertilized eggs to transfer in the end. The starting numbers for this procedure is low, low, low…. BUT we got good odds out of the rest of it.
Our 2 fertilized eggs were of the highest quality, which is wonderful considering the rest of the news.
And we get to try again! The good Doctor has some items in mind to better our odds. We are now being treated as a couple twice our age! (well, maybe not quite that much lol, but quite a bit older anyway). The drugs are going to be increased both before (vitamins) and during the shots to the tummy. They are also going to ‘reset’ Derrian’s uterus…
I’m not going to go into details on what is involved in order to reset a uterus… Just know that both CKnight and Derrian cringed. It’s not pretty.
On to the next time!!
