My child is a miracle.
We were lucky the stars aligned to allow for her conception and birth.
The docs doubt we’ll be twice lucky.
I pray they’re proven wrong.
Our infertility specialist had “the talk” with me yesterday. Those at the end of long battles with infertility know what I’m talking about. The “talk” is the hard convo when docs lay out all the test results and stats and paint a bleak picture for success. The “talk” usually involves considering stopping treatment.
Before we call it quits, the docs want me to take one last test. This test gives a sense of how many eggs are left and whether or not a woman is prematurely entering menopause. The info gleaned, coupled with other info such as hormone levels and previous pregnancy success/failure, will give a good sense of the odds of a successful pregnancy.
In short, if the numbers are good we’re good to go on IVF #3.
Low numbers mean there’s no point in doing another IVF with my eggs.
So if you’re out there reading. If you pray, meditate, or just think good thoughts.
Please hope we catch lightning in a bottle again.
