A new journey

It looks like the IVF journey is over for us. On August, 2nd, I had the 2 frozen embryos transferred. The first blood results were fine but then the pregnancy test came negative on Monday. I'm not giving up..!

L'etape FIV s'acheve pour nous. Nous avons effectue l'implantation de 2 embryons le 2aout. Tout semblait aller a la premiere prise de sang malheureusement la deuxieme prise de sang n'a pas eu le resultat escompte. Je n'abandonne pas et garde espoir!

2 years already!

I can't believe it has been 2 years since I started this blog! It has been wonderful to make friends all over the world. I can't thank you enough, my friends, for you emails, for the great swaps, and all the support you have given me during difficult times! So thank you again!

Also a special day for my hubby who is doing his first shift at his new job today! Good luck sweetie!

Voila deja 2 ans que je tiens ce blog! Un grand merci a vous les filles, pour vos emails et vos messages de soutien. Ce blog m'a permis de rencontrer de supers keupines :)

Une petite pensee pour mon mari qui commence un nouveau poste aujourd'hui!

It seems all I do on this blog lately is rant about my infertility issues! I thought it couldn't get worse. Think twice! I did more blood tests to check natural killer cells levels and boy they are high.. way over the normal range. So that could be THE explanation to the 5 failed pregnancies. I have antibodies that kill the embryos.

We're getting referred to an immunology specialist. Fine.. Well not really.. There are sides of medicine that are such a RACKET! To be told that we have to repeat a whole range of tests (that were just performed 2 weeks ago by a different lab) is outrageous! Tests that are to be paid cash and that cost thousands of dollars. Do you hear me scream? To be told that I possibly need a treatment that is not quite recognized and proven yet that costs a minimum of $3000 per shot, requiring 3 shots per month, for 6 months. let me do the maths.. $3000 x 3 x 6 = $54,000 cash minimum. This is extortion. This is taking advantage of women who are desperate to conceive.
This was an outburst coming from myself and a physician, my husband, who trained over a decade to get where he is and works his a** off!
I needed to vent!
Needless to say that we are NOT going to (be taken for a ride) repeat the tests and pay over $50k for unproven treatments..

A big fat negative!

I had the dreaded biopsy last Friday. My husband was so patient with me and answered gazillions questions I asked before I went to my appointment. That was a huge help! Also having many friends telling me everything would be fine was a huge help. So thank you guys! The result came back negative today. I'm going back in 6 months to ensure it was not a false negative.

I guess I'm going back to 90210 for more hormone shots ;)

Thank you

Thank you all for your birthday wishes! I had a lovely birthday celebration at Melisse. The food was just exquisite and the service impeccable!

A little less joyous note.. It looks like we are gonna need to postpone the embryo transfer. Following a mammogram and an ultrasound, I have to go back for a biopsy for a category 4 suspicious. The appointment is in 2 weeks. I guess we will know in 3!
