Life with Coco and Gigi... and Jack-Jack too!

Life as a Mom, A Homesteader, A Blogger and A Wife.

What Now?

So, now what the hell are we supposed to do. Do we give up? Do we keep going, knowing that we could spend thousands of dollars (that we don't have) and still end up with nothing? What is the right move. Someone tell me which direction to turn, what the right thing to do is.

We plan on transferring the three snow babies that we have frozen in July. That's called a Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) and has about a 30% success rate. If that doesn't work, we will try to go through another round of IVF (probably with donating half of the eggs again, to try to be able to afford it). If we have enough embryos we will freeze some and then do a second FET, if needed. The problem is that each one of these processes costs thousands of dollars.

We both know that we can't give up after only one try, but the thought of going through all of this stress and effort again and getting another negative is so frightening. Luckily our RE's office has a 46% success rate with FET's, so we are hopeful. I guess we'll have to keep on keeping on.

Definitely don't give up....

We are lucky because here in Australia ivf is very affordable, but it definitely is a matter of perservering. You will get there in the long run; and I truly hope it is soon....

Only you and your husband will be able to figure out how far you want to go... I know not definitive advice by any means. I'm telling you what you already know. At times like this I wish it was mandated that insurance companies were mandated to provide infertility coverage and ART treatments were covered because then the cost wouldn't be an issue, just the emotional cost rather than the financial. Good luck with the FET!

my clinic copied a little saying for me..."everything will be okay in the end, and if it is not okay right now, it's not the end." Hold on to this and BELIEVE IT, cuz only you can believe it in yourself.

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
