We finally have our plan for our third frozen transfer. I had met with Dr. G (my original RE) and we decided to transfer 2 frozen embryos in October. I was waiting for my period which was almost 10 days late! Finally I started so I called with the start of my cycle and got potential dates for transfer. I picked October 29th because it’s a and a day of bed rest so it would give me a nice long weekend to relax.
I am very skeptical about this cycle and I am not really emotionally attached to it at all like I was with my last cycle. I know that there is a possibility that all 7 embryos that we got from our first fresh cycle could be abnormal due to the quality of my eggs. It would be very devastating if we burned through all 7 and not one of them took, but it would also be a very strong indicator that my egg quality IS the actual issue and we could then continue to address that as the REAL issue and the REAL cause of my infertility.
I am not really convinced that the Beta 3 Integrin protein deficiency is as much of an issue as I had originally thought. Dr. G wouldn’t even test me for it, and Dr. LdM said it was an anomaly that some doctors believe it is absolutely necessary and some view it as hogwash. Between that and the fact that Dr. LdM at my WTF appointment told me that medically, “you shouldn’t even be here” I realized that it’s not the protein deficiency, it’s not the endometriosis, it’s nothing I’ve been previously treated for that is the issue.
Besides baby making (or lack thereof), I’ve been loving the weather that we are having and really enjoying every second I get to spend in my house. I seriously look forward to going straight home after work every single day. For me, my home is like a vacation; it’s relaxing, it’s comfortable, & it’s mine. I’ve been decorating for fall and making lots of comfort food lately like Zuppa tuscana and chicken pot pie. I love cooking in my beautiful kitchen. We’ve been making our homemade wine, finishing up trim in all the bedrooms, and just started our front porch. I love having the windows open and the double sliding door open watching the trees, birds, squirrels, butterflies, grasshoppers, spiders, (OMG THE SPIDERS!?), and all the rest of nature while my Scentsy fills the air with fall smells. It is fabulous.

Frankie making sure we didn't drop any grapes while working on the wine.
This weekend I am going to a Cubs/Cardinals game with my mom and her best friend and her daughter. Next week is our FOUR year anniversary! Then September is practically over! I cannot believe how fast this year has flown and it seems like these last couple months are going to go even quicker if that is possible. I’m excited for Halloween which is my favorite holiday and of course, our frozen transfer.
I hope all my beautiful bloggers are enjoying themselves lately. I apologize again for not being as present as I normally am or would like to be. I am so passionate about writing and advocating, but sometimes a break is necessary, especially when you’ve got some serious writers block and not much to talk about. I thank you all for your continued prayers and support.
