If I ever talk about wanting to move again, stab me.....

I don't think Max is excited about moving........OMG, I forgot how much work moving is, yikes! We have been working all day everyday since we closed on our new home on Friday, I need a break & a beer! :) We have all of our stuff over at the new place now, so tonight we are heading over to the town home to do some cleaning & get ready for the walk through & close on that place Friday. We are re carpeting our new place, so my Husband's brother has been working dilugently on that for us, thanks bro! I can't wait to be settled & get started on decorating & making the place our own. Fresh starts are always good!
We had our follow up with our RE yesterday morning. It went pretty well, she said it isn't perfect science & sometimes these things happen & since all was fine with our baby, it isn't likely to be a recurrence. We talked about FET & how many embryo's we would thaw. She said out of the 13 we have frozen, 6 are excellent. She said there is a 50% survival rate, so she recommends unthawing all the straws we have hoping 2-3 of the 6 best survive & continue to grow. We are most likely going to put two back, but we talked a little about 3. We haven't made the final decision yet, she said we can see how the thawing goes & make our decision then. The FET transfer nurse left me a message to get our dating set today, but I called back & now they haven't called me back, so just waiting. It will most likely be Sep or Oct. She said it will be BCP's again, Lupron, PIO & some pills this time...I can't remember the name of them & she also said I should start taking my Prenatal & folic acid now. She asked if there was anything she could do to help us at all & my Husband asked if we could get a refund on our first IVF, I don't think she thought that was too funny. Here we go, back on the roller coaster!!!!

Lately, whenever I think about my pregancy, I wish I would have enjoyed it more. I was such a bundle of nerves the whole time, I didn't stop to actually experience the joy of my baby's life inside of me. Coulda, shoulda, woulda, I know, but if I could go back, I would enjoy every single minute of it, damn straight I would. I can only hope that there will be next time, so here's to hoping!!!

Jen, there WILL be a next time, there will. And thank you so much for that last paragraph, you've talked some sense into my own head with regard to my worrying.

I can't wait to read about your next cycle and subsequent pregnancy x

I am so glad that you guys are gearing up for your FET. The pills that I took (not sure if it would be the same for you, but I think the protocal is the same if you got the little booklet thing) are estrace and baby asprin.

I also thank you for your last paragraph. Such a reminder for me to be thankful for today and each day I get as a pregnant woman.

Keep the faith...FET do work...even if they are20% chances. I believe and I am proof. Maybe you and I will up those odds for our clinic!!
