IVF - Its already scary enough, does it have to be complicated too!
Yes - it has to be as confusing and as scary as it looks!
As you all know, IUI #4 didn't work and they will not do anymore with shots...so where does this leave us? Accepting the fact that maybe we will never have children or accepting the fact that the scary picture up above is where we are heading!
I just finished reading the papers they sent us for our IVF consultation (which BTW they already gave us). I decided that I better read them again to understand...OK I still don't understand. Well, I understand what it is that they essentially do what I don't understand is all the stuff you all talk about so knowledgeably. Like what stages they are at etc...I have NO CLUE what any of you are talking about when you say those things...and that scares me.
But, you know what scares me the most..is having it not work. Like anything in life, nothing is a guarantee..BUT, you get to this stage and you put all your eggs (literally) in to one basket (OK, a petri-dish) and you hope to god it works. Some of you have been through 4-5 of these...and I don't know how you do it? Emotionally, physically and mentally..I feel like an IUI with the shots is draining enough..I am assuming I have no idea what is to come...
