ICLW Hello!

Hey gals. Welcome!

We are about to start an FET cycle. My last attempt at ART. I have been trying to conceive off and on since 1995. We adopted two daughters in the middle and for much of that time I was on BCP for endo it's not like a surprise baby was going to be conceived.

Infertility has altered who I am. It has made me feel like less of a woman.

I am at the end of the road for ART...this one beautiful excellent/excellent frozen blastocyst is it. He will be transferred next month and we will see what happens.

(((hugs))) to all of you on a similar journey.

I'll keep you in my thoughts! All the best on this FET.

Oh wowie..I didn't realize Frosty's big day was next month..Im hoping (if thats okay) a whole big bunch for you!!

Sara said...

Next month! Wow, that's soon.

I never had any extra embryos to freeze, so I have no experience with FET's, but I've had lots of on-line friends get pregnant that way, and I've got a good feeling about this cycle for you.

Good luck!

Wow how blessed you've been to be able to add two gorgeous daughters to your family who were obviously meant to be right where they are now.

I totally get the "feel like less of a woman" comment.

I will keep everything crossed that your beautiful excellent blastocyst turns into your equally gorgeous child that you get to hold in your arms in 9 months time!

I am really hoping you get a miracle with little frozen guy! I have had two fresh cycles and two FETs, and got pregnant once of the FET (unfortunately then I miscarried) but not the fresh cycles. So, this can work! I found FET so much less stressful than the fresh cycle, and less stress is a very good thing. Wishing you all the best.

Happy ICLW!!

Good luck for your FET next month - hopefully everything will go perfectly! I am a member of an IVF forum with my clinic and have seen many successful pregnancies come from FET's!

All the best!

I get the less of a woman line. I still haven't found a way past that feeling. Just had this conversation with hubby yesterday.

We are talking about doing our FET next month too. may Feb be our month...and 2010 our year!!!!! God bless!

Serendipity said...

I get the less of a woman feeling - for a long time I felt like a failure, like I was broken... it's so sad that on top of the other pain it brings, infertility makes us feel fundamentally flawed :(

I hope this FET brings your long-awaited BFP, good luck for next month.

Good luck with your FET next month, I will be keeping you in my thoughts.

The "less of a woman" feeling hits me at random times now and then, or I feel like a broken woman. The one thing I am supposed to be able to do on this earth and I can't.

Good luck with your FET!! Fingers crossed for you.

And I know what you mean about feeling like less of a woman 8-(

Sarah said...

best of luck to you!!!

We adopted an amazing baby boy last year but are still TTC, because yes, IF has left a hole in my heart and while our darling son made us parents, I still long to experience pregnancy and delivery. I wish that for you, too. Good luck with your FET!
