Over a year ago, I had my first consult with an RE and was overwhelmed with paperwork and decisions. We decided that we'd go thru 4 IUIs and quit. Then during IUI#3, we said if this doesn't work, we're done. We were for sure going to have success - I had 4 follies and H has no issues. Well, IF sucks and it was a BFFN.
So we've talked a bit about adopting, but it seems more overwhelming than IF treatments (although less physically painful, since daily blood work isn't required :-) ) We're also not sure adoption is for us...still not sure on this decision. Like everyone else, we didn't think we'd have a problem conceiving since everyone else in our family is very fertile...and shortly after we were married, we had a surprise (which sadly ended in m/c). Five years later, we've kinda given up on seeing two lines.
Any tips for processing all of this? How did you decide you wanted to adopt or did you always know that you wanted to adopt? How did your family react? Did you tell your family before you started the process?
