Its Hard to Hope

The truth is that there isn't much to look forward to after a failed IVF cycle. Its hard to not feel as though you have put everything possible into getting pregnant only to fail (again). So what now?

The chances if conceiving with an FET are cut in half from the chances that I had with a fresh cycle IVF. Knowing this, how am I supposed to think that this can work when why 75% success rate fresh cycle IVF didn't? It is next to impossible to convince myself that even though my fresh cycle failed my frozen cycle can succeed. Its hard to imagine it working because we still don't know why my fresh cycle failed; we have no reasons, nothing that we can fix or change.

The beauty of an FET is that it’s another shot, just when you were starting to think you were running out of chances.

The beauty of an FET is that maybe, just maybe, it could be your path to baby.


  1. I really hope this works! I am rooting for you guys!

  2. I have the same type of thinking but try you best to concentrate on the fact that it does happen. I know the stats seem to be stacke against it but the fact is that it does happen. Otherwise they wouldn't do it!
    Good luck!

  3. I have a close friend whose fresh IVF cycle didn't work, but the FET was the trick! Good luck to you!

  4. Keeping my fingers crossed!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. I hope that the FET is it for you! Thanks for your comment on my blog about the bag. Now if I could just cut the time it took me to make it in 1/2 I could consider making them to sell! :) Still following you girls and thinking of all of you! ((hugs))

  6. Just remember:
    1) If your embies made it to freeze, it means they are strong
    2) FETs are much easier on your body than fresh cycles
    3) You are at RGI now and they truly want you to succeed
    4) I am ALWAYS here for you!!
