Infertility update

I figured I had better update on our situation, even though there isn't really much new news to share. I had my follow-up with the doctor last week and she was very kind, as usual, but didn't really offer me anything new. She outlined the new protocol that she wants me to try on this next attempt at IVF, which should be in April-May. I'm still praying to God that my body just doesn't like these past stimulating meds & that we just haven't figured out how to get these eggs out of me yet. She also is sending me for some "experimental" bloodwork to possibly give us a better idea of how many eggs I have left...just another way for us to cross-check what she's been suspecting. Which I suppose is a good thing, even if I am not ready to hear the results.

I also requested a copy of my records so that I can send them out for a second opinion consultation with a clinic in NJ. They do free phone consultations & I just need to hear someone else's professional outlook. Hopefully someone has some answers for me...and before we run out of money for this.

I'll keep you posted

Hi Teri;

May God strengthen you as you walk this road of infertility. I know how hard it can be, as I have had 17 years of secondary infertility.

I pray that God sets your path and that you live in joy and peace.
