FET #4 on Hold

We've decided not to do a FET cycle this month for 2 reasons.

1) I'm a teacher and this year I am teaching a new grade and I am moving to a new classroom. The transfer would fall at the end of August or beginning of September when I need to be at school getting my classroom ready. My RE is one who is for 3 days of bed rest after a transfer so I really can't afford to do that at this time.

2) Paul and I need a break as well as my body needs a break! I've been pumping hormones into my body and have been poked and proded since February. I'll be able to feel as though I can live life like I did pre-IVF/FET. There will be no 2WW so I can get back to the gym this month, have a drink, not have to worry about overheating myself in the, take hot baths (which I LOVE)!

So, we will enjoy a month free of FET, ultrasounds, bloodwork, estrogen tablets, progesterone, needles in my bum, and the long dreaded 2ww. We'll get back on the FET wagon next month.

Well, if you want an ART break, you know you need one.

Good luck with your month off. Hope it's enjoyable.

Sometimes you just need a break.
Have lots of fun, enjoy everything you can't whilst playing the TTC game.

Good morning! I stumbled across you blog and realized that we are following along similiar paths. My husband and I have IVF #1 coming up in October. We also are seriously considering adopting from China. I think we've found a good agency and I'm getting excited about the idea. IVF #1 may be our only one. We have zero insurance coverage for infertility and want to make sure we leave ourselves with the resources to adopt and raise a child. Good luck to you on your journey! I hope we both have successful transfers and uneventful pregnancies; if not maybe I'll see you in China :). Enjoy your month off.

I'm a teacher too. I remember too well trying to plan a cycle around my schedule. Sorry your (and my) summer is just about over. Hope your new classroom is beautiful and bright!
