The Results Are In....

... and they are again the same as they always are. It looks like IVF is officially on the horizon. We have the option of one more IUI cycle with injectables, but to be honest, I just don't have it in me. My doctor made it very clear before she went on maternity leave (fitting) that we could move on to IVF whenever we were ready... we are ready-ish. Our doctor wont be back until mid April, so that means we will have a natural cycle and a much needed break from any fertility medication. Once she returns, we will get set up to begin the IVF protocol with the following cycle. All of this is terrifying and but kind of exciting all at the same time. A 70% chance over a 25% chance is pretty appealing at this point!!!

I am so sorry to hear this... I know at first IVF seems so overwhelming but like you said, the percentage is so promising. I am proof it CAN work on the 1st try. Looking back I wouldn't change anything we did or went through to get where we are today. That's what matters most is knowing you will be blessed with a baby however that process may take you.

Sounds like your odds with IVF are good.

It's good you get a little time off mentally before starting. I know you must fell like "let's just get on with it already" but with some time off hopefully you can be more prepared.

70% over 25% sounds amazing!!! Thinking of you, perhaps we'll be going through it all together! Hugs!

Oh sweetie, I'm so sorry :( It's just not fair is it!! You are entitled to your very own pity party...and then it's time to get excited about IVF. I hate that it's come to that for you, but it truly does sound exciting and hopeful :)

Keep us posted...and I'll be praying as usual ;)

I'm so excited for this next stage for you!! You've been through enough with all the IUI's. You're ready for the big time! You CAN do it! And we'll all be so thrilled to hear that you are pregnant!

Moving to IVF is such a huge step. It sounds like you are in the right frame of mind and ready for this next, and hopefully final, chapter in your IF treatments.
I will be following you and cheering you along the entire way!

Sorry to hear about the IUI but I agree with your decision to move on to IVF. Take a break from meds and give yourself time for renewed hope putting your energy toward the next steps... wish you all the best!

Sorry to hear the IUI didn't work out. I felt the same way about trying another. It was also nice to get a break from all the meds and just relax a little before IVF. Wishing you the best of luck!
