IVF #2, coming soon..

We're in the final stages of preparation for IVF #2.  We're doing it with great reluctance, because we were really hopeful for a natural BFP this time.  Alas, it was not to be.  The meds are on their way, bloodwork and testing is almost done, so it will be "all systems go" in about 3 weeks.  This time, I'm doing a Ganirelix / Menopur protocol rather than the old Lupron / BCP lead-up cycle.  That is fine with me, it means less meds and a shorter cycle.  This doc also only does 3-day transfers.  At first, I was a little skeptical.  Then I remembered that I did two 5-day transfers with no success, so I guess I'm OK with it.  If this IVF and its resulting embryos don't result in a pregnancy, then we are done.  We are very happy with our little guy, we were just hoping to complete our family with a sibling.  Wish me luck!


  1. OOh, good, good luck to you. Keep us posted! Good news on fewer meds and a shorter cycle, I will send good, fertile thoughts your way.

    I know how you feel about wishing for a natural bfp. I am still dragging my feet on TTC #2 but think I *might* be ready next year.

  2. Wishing you every success! So good to hear from you!
