The plan... Immune protocol

Sorry for the delay! Lots to process!!!

One thing is for sure... Jesus is my Rock and that's how I roll! πŸŽΈπŸ˜‚πŸ™ŒπŸ» He has been my rock and my refuge through each cycle, through each miscarriage. He has lifted me out of the pit and helped me find joy and peace... even through so much heartache. He has brought me to a place of surrender, even though he has asked me to complete the journey with our two remaining embryos. What does this surrender mean to me? I am finally okay with NOT having any more children. I'm okay if God gives us more too. I just want what God wants for me.

So, it looks like I still have some autoimmune issues! It also looks like DH and I also have a DQ match (a same gene). Which means my bodies attacks our embryos thinking they are a foreign invader.

When I first found out our protocol, I was fearful. My body is FINALLY feeling amazing and I'm scared to start taking a bunch of meds again. So here is my protocol...
1. Start 5 mg prednisone 2x a day 4 weeks before transfer. After transfer up to 30mg, 15mg twice a day til week 20 in pregnancy. Then ween off.
2. IVIG 7-10 days. Two days back to back, then once a month through out pregnancy.
3. Heparin and baby aspirin to prevent clotting throughout pregnancy.

It's a lot. I've thought about it all. DH and I both agree we can only do this once. It's risky! My health is at stake! the good thing is the the RI will follow me until delivery, if we are successful.
So, now we wait for CD 1! protocol is set. I'm ready!

Dandelion Puffs... immunologist update!

I don't make wishes anymore... I tell my boys when you blow on these they are like little prayers to heaven!  I started thinking about those yesterday on my run. In this, my infertility, my desire for a baby to complete our family, is no longer my prayer, no more blowing on dandelion puffs, I laid it down at the cross. My hearts greatest desire, my empty, hungry womb, it's out of my hands. I've surrendered to His plan, His desire for our family... thy will be done Lord.

FOUR MORE HOURS until our follow up  appointment with our Reproductive Immunologist. i was feeling very anxious about it. Knowing why our babies keep dying. I realized it's bc we will have yet ANOTHER diagnosis. It's hard having so many. It hurts knowing how broken your body is. But God is the great physicians. He is the miracle worker... and thy will be done. πŸ™πŸ»
