So there are a few reasons why I am super excited for this round to get to the point of implantation, and why I truly believe that this will be the cycle that is successful! First of all, my body already got practice once and although it did not work - - now it’s ready to be a rock star and succeed!
Second of all, this is a frozen cycle which does not involve as many drugs, and my body does not have to go through the retrieval surgery in the middle of the cycle! All of the drugs I have to take for a fresh cycle tend to make it more difficult for the progress of my lining in my uterus to be lined up with the progress of the embryo they had implanted. There is no retrieval surgery during an FET (Frozen Embryo Transfer) which will leave my body well rested and in more of a natural state during the cycle!
I have also been taking some amazing vitamins on top of my prenatal vitamins and my women’s “One-A-Day” vitamins that are recommended for fertility. And my last reason may not have any medical credibility or facts behind it, and may be “slightly” superstitious, but I will take it! My lucky number has always been the number 2 and that may sound silly, but it seems that the number 2 is showing up a lot in this cycle. This is our 2nd round of IVF! This time we are implanting 2 embryos. We have always dreamed of having 2 children. This month marks our 2 year anniversary of “trying” to get pregnant.
And lastly, 1st is the worst, 2nd is the best . . ha. Those last reasons may sound ridiculous, but right now I will allow it to make sense!
Cheers to Round 2,
