What Happens Next

this morning was my visit with dr. T and, i must say, it went very well. she thinks we need to be more aggressive, so as soon as my next cycle starts we get to move on to IVF!!!

it has taken us almost 9 years to get to this point. i can't even tell you how many times we've talked about wishing we could afford to try at least one round of IVF. we are both so unbelievably grateful to be here and to finally have this chance.

i don't want to get my hopes up, but i just can't help it. we know that i can get pregnant, so maybe being able to have the embryos graded and carefully selected will give us the full-term pregnancy we've dreamed of. B and i are both feeling very confident..i just hope we're not overly-confident. we know it may not work the first time, as well, but we know we have more chances and we know we have our back-up plans, which definitely gives us peace of mind.

this is a new chapter in our journey and i can't wait to get started!

Exciting! I hope it's your first and last IVF. They can get so much information, grade the embryos and (like in the image) do assisted hatching... which helped our little one stick around! Truly an amazing process and makes me wonder how it ever happens naturally! Wishing you all the best!
