TTC since 2008. 8 IUIs, 3 IVFs & 1 FET later we're still not pregnant & running out of options.

we met with an RE @ the practice where we did IVF #2. We are moving Nemo ourselves.
She has had people do it before with no issue. Basically I have to
call Clinic Y & see what I need to do paperwork wise, then call Clinic X to reserve the canister; it's like a $100 deposit
that gets refunded upon return of the tank. So I get the tank, bring it to Clinic Y where they put Nemo in, then bring it back to Clinic X. The doc actually
suggested taking some photos of the tank for a baby book (hopefully). I
am off next week & Wednesday is the only day I have nothing going on/am local so hopefully
the stars align & we can do it then. If not, no rush since the FET
won't be til after Memorial Day. We will also need to wait to
sign FET consents too since they're only good for 3 mos. We will be
doing an estrogen protocol for the FET.
as any future IVFs if the FET doesn't work, she thinks there's a bigger
MFI issue than we realize as well. His SAs are always great #s wise but
throughout the years his motility has
been all over the place & his morph is always low. She does
recommend a sperm frag test & says we can have him start taking supplements thereafter if it is an issue.
Regarding me, she thinks the
protocol from IVF #2 likely yielded good results because of the "Clomid
kickstart" since it sends your hormones into overdrive. She isn't sure
if I need tons of stims because of my weight or because I'm simply a
slow responder but that's neither here nor there with an FET. We will do PIO & suppositories (fun!) as well as
monitor my progesterone since in her experience bigger women need more
