(Re) Intro! *Trigger Warning*

Hello everyone! I was pretty active on these boards a couple years ago when I was going through multiple IUIs and then IVF to conceive my now 19 month old beautiful daughter! I wanted to pop back on here and join the community again because I found it to be such a wonderful support (and I even met an IRL buddy through these boards who also conceived via IVF)!

Just a brief recap- we have an MFI diagnosis. Had 3 failed IUIs in 2016. Did a round of IVF (egg retrieval only, no fresh transfer) and ended up with 7 PGS normal embryos. I know how lucky I was to end up with that many. We were successful on our first FET in September 2016 and are now proud parents to the most perfect little girl who will be 2 this coming May!

DH and I have decided to do our next FET sometime in the next couple months, so I scheduled a consultation with our RE for Feb 4th. I'm starting to get really excited about doing this again (but also very anxious, of course). I'd love to get to know some of you! Infertility is such a lonely, painful process and I found a lot of support here. I hope I can offer some support and hope to the rest of you!

  • Welcome back!  Also here for round #2 and I remember seeing you back when I did IVF back in 2015.  We did an FET with my two remaining embryos in August which unfortunately resulted in a miscarriage.  We've across the country since then so I have a consult for IVF #2 in February!  I'm hoping 2019 is great for all of us!

  • @wifeinraleigh28 Hey girl! Welcome back! We also just started the process for #2 as our second FET wasn't successful last January. I am in the process of prepping for a retrieval since I don't have any embryos left. I look forward to keeping up with your journey and hopefully...FX....we are on this journey together for #2 again :smiley:

  • It’s so comforting to see some familiar “faces” here!

    @JWatt5 we may be cycling together! How exciting! I hope to be with you on PAIF again soon :) How's your little one doing?

    @caitiemae I'm so sorry about your m/c :( FX for success this go around! Where are you living now?

    @cashewchicken I have heard that same advice from others before. I guess it's just better for your body? Who knows. I hope this is your year for #2!

    @Tulips29 I was thinking about you and wondering if you had plans for doing another retrieval soon! How exciting! I'm definitely rooting for you. How's your little one doing? Doesn't he have a birthday coming up?! ;)

  • @wifeinraleigh28 thank you! I'll be rooting for you as well! My little one just turned 2 earlier this month (GASP!). Where did the time go? This is definitely a very fun age now that he's talking up a storm and says funny things, but terrible 2's are no joke too! lol....but it's all very fun :smile:

  • @Tulips29 @JWatt5 It seems that they just get more and more fun and interesting as they get older! I always think "this is my favorite age!" and then she gets bigger and I'm like, "nope THIS is my favorite age!" Haha. Being a mom is so much fun. I can't believe how big our littles ones are now!

    One thing that I've been worried about is how having another baby is going to affect Elle. I know that she will eventually adjust no matter what, but it's still something I worry about. I mean let's face it, I worry about just about everything when it comes to her! :joy:
