We're ready for a baby!

Daughters latest word is...

Yep, we're ready!

We're saving up to go back in July.  My cousin works for a hotel chain and he's looking into whether or not he can get us a discount.  So that might save us some cash!

Plus, my parents have a bunch of stuff in their garage that they're going to let us sell on Craigslist.  Should get us about $1000!  Thanks mom and dad!

We're on course to have plenty saved by then.  I'm still working and that really helps.  We're planning on me not working anymore once the new baby is here.

Mat and I have decided to transfer 3.  However God chooses to bless us, we'll be thrilled!

But the second transfer is a bit scary to think about.  If this doesn't work, we have one more shot- that's it.  I completely understand.  NEDC is most concerned about giving these frozen humans a chance at life thawed out- if someone with a bad womb wanted to keep trying and trying, it wouldn't be giving them a fair chance.

But my womb is good, right?  Yes... from all three of my transfers (one IVF and two FET through NEDC) each has resulted in pregnancy.  The ones that didn't last were most likely due to embryo quality.  Even though the embryos looked great this time, most chemical pregnancies are caused by abnormal chromosomes in the embryo.

So, yes Daughter, Baby baby baby! :)

  1. I hope it all goes well!
    I understand NEDCs policy, but I'm glad my RE doesn't have that policy. We had 4 failed FETs and Sadie was attempt #5. (Mostly, low quality embryos- donated embryos are the ones the RE didn't choose for the original parents.)

    Our older daughter was attempt #1 and our younger was #5. I guess that averages out to less than 3. Lol.
