What if I never make it to FET?
I just need to vent or maybe hear stories of encouragement. I went thru a very tumultuous 3 years to have my son, with many failed pregnancies, ectopics, PCOS, etc. We started IVF and made embryos but ultimately I ended up conceiving and delivering him without intervention. Fast forward another 3 years and we’d like to give him a sibling. We tried naturally for a few months but I found it really stressful (maybe a little ptsd?) so we decided to use our embryos. I foolishly thought a FET would be “easier” - ya know, controlled environment, lots of monitoring, professional help. But after months of tons of meds and waking up at 5 am to drive to early morning monitoring appointments, I’ve had two canceled cycles because my lining won’t respond!! And this month was a no-go because they won’t schedule around the holidays. So now I have to wait til Jan/Feb whenever I get my next period and I’m just worried that it’s going to be the same result. We already tried a different protocol and changing the meds but what if we run out of things to try? Is there anyone who IVF just simply never happened for??? I can’t even wrap my head around something like surrogacy because, for one, we can’t afford it; and, I already carried a baby on my own successfully! WTF??? I’m just so frustrated. Ugh.
