Well AF arrived today and I'm ok, better than I thought I would be. I can't say I didn't shed a tear or two, because I did, but I knew IVF was coming. I called my RE and next Thursday we have our IVF Nurse Consult. I'll be doing an U/S and a Trial Transfer, which should be interesting. We are going to meet with our RE and several nurses and go over our plan of action and on all the meds I'll be on. I'll get some questions answered and go from there. I start my BCPs on Friday night and start the Antibiotics next Tuesday.
I think Rob and I have come to the decision that we will do genetic testing on the embryos if it is an option. With everything we have been thru I just don't know if I could bring a child into the world with genetic issues or other health issues. I just couldn't do it. I know for some people, especially those that are Christians, doing genetic testing may not be something you agree with, but it is up to Rob, myself, and God to decide what to do for our IVF. With Rob's condition and all my health issues, I just want to make sure we pick the healthiest embies to transfer. And besides it would be kind of cool to already know the sexes. But I think since we really want to do a 3 embryo transfer if it's possible we would put back 2 boys and 1 girl, and then if we ended up with 1 or 2, we still could wait til the gender reveal to know for sure what it's going to be.
I'm at peace with everything. I called and got the loan paperwork underway and will hopefully have the checks in hand by next week. I'm also going to try and get our taxes done so we can hopefully get some refund money back and put towards the IVF as well. Things are moving along and I can't help but feel that they are moving in the right direction.
