i've decided i would like to express some concerns to the RE tomorrow about taking a break. i don't want to take a break and here are the reasons i'm going to bring up with him.
1. i feel like we just had a 2 month break. i had an IUI in march, april's cycle was cancelled and may i was on BCP getting ready for my june IVF.
2. i feel like a FET (frozen embryo transfer) IS a break. it gives my body a little break because there will be no stimming, no retrieval surgery, etc.
3. i'm working part time in july and i took all of august off. i'd rather use that time to get to all the appointments, etc. rather than push things into september when i will be working full time again and busy with new kids and the start of school. families depend on me for childcare and any day i need off, they are left without it.
i'm not sure he'll agree, but i figure it's worth a shot. i also want to double check with the insurance people that i will still be approved for a fresh cycle if the thaw cycle doesn't work. originally i was only approved for 2 IVF cycles and the nurse told me the thaw cycle does count as an IVF. if i can only do one more, i'd rather do another fresh cycle. the nurse doesn't think it will be a problem since i have the insurance with the best infertility coverage, but i would want to double check before the thaw cycle.
i'm really glad the RE is going to see us tomorrow. i'm interested in seeing if they learned any more information during this last cycle that may improve our chances next time. we were never told the letter grades of our embryos so i'd like to know that too. i also want to ask him what our chances are of conceiving on our own without medical intervention. i think mr. needs to hear it from the horses mouth. he still keeps talking about "trying for another year on our own" which frustrates me to no end.
