Hi all! I'm 39 years old and my TTC journey has been all over the place. I had an early miscarriage in 2009 and was somewhat active on the TTCAL board after that (under a different name ... I can't remember my log-in and password since it's been so long and had to start a new one!). I had my daughter in 2010 (now four years old) and my son in 2011 (now two years old); both were conceived naturally. My daughter has a rare and potentially deadline genetic disease that was diagnosed when I was pregnant with my son (thankfully, he does not have it). We are hoping for a third baby through IVF with PGD (preimplantation genetic disgnosis), where they test the embryos before implantation to see if they have the disease and only implant "healthy" embryos. I already had one failed IVF in February. My second one (and almost surely last, regardless of whether or not it is successful) is underway now ... I took my trigger shot tonight and retrieval is scheduled for Sunday morning.
Anyone else close to retrieval in an IVF cycle? Anyone by chance doing IVF with PGD? I'm a super private person about things like this and am not sharing what's going on with anyone IRL (other than my husband). Thanks for reading if you got this far.
