WTF Appointment

Today was my WTF appointment and it was not good.  I had a whole list of questions for my RE and I never got to a single one of them.  Our RE doesn't think we should cycle again, he thinks we would be throwing away money.  He talked a little about doing some genetic testing (karyotyping) and DQ Alpha Match testing to see if we can figure out why our embryos don't grow normally.  He also said that he would pass our file on to another RE for review to see if he could come up with any ideas for us.

Basically he gave us the following options for building our family.  1. Adoption.  I think this is a great option, but I really want to experience pregnancy.   So for now this is not something we are considering.  2.  Embryo adoption.  My clinic recommends NDEC.  This is a possibility for us, but DH isn't thrilled about having to go through the whole home study approval process.  3. Donor Sperm.  We could try a few rounds of Clomid + IUI with donor sperm.  DH is not comfortable with this idea and I don't like the success rates for IUI.  4. Donor Egg.  DE can be expensive.  My sister has offered to donate eggs, but we haven't really discussed it in depth and DH is not super comfortable with the idea.

This whole week has been an emotional roller coaster and I want  off the ride.  It was a week ago today that I got my positive beta.  So much has changed in a week.  I also finally started my period this evening.  I knew it was coming, but it still hurts.


  1. Big hugs for you dear. Hang in there and know that there are a LOT of people thinking about you and sending you love right now. <3

  2. I am so sorry your appt didn't go as you planned. (((HUGS))) I hope you are able to find peace in your decisions
