What wrench I was thrown! I was not planning on our 5aa not making the thaw, and I was not planning Having feelings of trying again! Yup! We are doing one last IVF because we never even got a chance with this cycle! I can't believe it but I feel excited again! I guess I was so down about our 5aa was because that cycle totally did NOT go as planned! We didn't even get a chance!
Dr Amin wanted to talk to Dr R, my Original RE about The new plan prior to us beginning. I received a call from her this morning and Dr R wanted me to do a mock transfer with a biopsy next month to see what day my uterus is most receptive to transfer an embryo. All these transfers have been on day 6 of progesterone, when I got pregnant with the boys, they were transferred on day 7 of progesterone because they were rescue ICSI'd. They think possibly my uterus is more receptive after 7 days!
My heart sank because that would just push out this process even more! I would have to a 'pretend' fet, do the patches, and Shots to biopsy on day 6. Well I told her that is just too much! So she had me give myself a shot and come in today since today would be the day I transferred with the boys!
What a relief!! I gave myself another P4 shot (I have been doing them in the morning so I didn't miss a day), took some ibuprofen and went in for the biopsy. Not bad at all! A little cramps for a min and it was done! Phew! Not I should start my period this week some time, then the bcps!
We will be doing long lupron, but with a much lower dose of stims, and adding Human Growth Hormone when the follies get to 14mm to help with egg quality. Also, I'm going back to start taking some supplements from the list my RE gave me for egg quality. Apparently less is more so we will be shooting for less eggs yet better quality. I think that must be what the issue was, a bad batch of eggs. Dr. Amin mentioned that I have a TON of eggs but with so many the quality goes down.
I will get the results of my biopsy in two weeks, but we'll start the BCP's right away!
Also, we plan to do a fresh transfer of TWO embryos and PGS the rest, given we have some good one!
I have to say, I'm excited again! Yesterday I wasn't even sad really, it was more of a relief! I was so relieved that we didn't have to go through the 2ww torture, which I feel is the WORST part of the whole process! It is so emotional and you get attached to what ever is put in you, hoping it's THE ONE(S)!
I was SO sure this last transfer was going to be it, but I didn't even get a chance to try ONE MORE TIME. So this WILL be it folks! Our official LAST IVF! I know you are probably tired of me saying that! ;-)
