Wow - it's been awhile since I was on these boards!
My name is Kathi. I have a 17m DD conceived through ICSI. My husband and I have been having loose discussion around possibly having another child. Recently, we decided to go for it. We have our initial consultation with our previous Dr scheduled for Tuesday. I am not sure what is in store for us this time around since A. We have already been through all of the diagnostics, B. We know the Dr from our last cycles, and C. We have 6 frozen embryos.
I am excited to start this journey, but also nervous. We had some ups and down while trying to get pregnant (as I am sure most of you did). It took us 3 cycles which isn't a ton, but there were some losses and diagnosis that we weren't prepared for. I don't have time to feel sorry for myself this time around as I have a little one who needs her mommy, so I am a bit worried about how this will all go down. Hoping this board is a good support system as we are trying to keep this cycle private.
I also have a nagging fear of having a disabled child.I feel like there is so littler research around fertility treatments. We are lucky enough to have a healthy and beautiful baby girl - I am scared we are pushing it by trying to have another. I know it sounds crazy, but I am certainly paranoid. I don't miss this part of TTC!
Looking forward to chatting with you ladies!
