Pushing Through

This morning sucked.  I managed to write my short post, and to write out a quick post to Facebook, because my extended family know just about everything, and it's easier than having to tell people.  Then Jakobe and I went to a little diner we like and I drank 3 cups of coffee and ate way too much breakfast!  We stopped by to see my mom and sister, who both work in the same place.  My sister had called me all excited and hopeful for me this morning, and she was going to call me back about lunch time...  it was easier to tell her face to face.  They cried for us - and I cried a little bit more.

After that we came home, and I was very glad to have something to do to occupy myself (besides my homework, which I also got done and e-mailed to the Prof. because I don't feel like going to class tonight.) and that was to put together the patio set my mother-in-law bought us me for my graduation present.  It was kind of fun, and definitely good for me to have something to do with my hands.

Besides, you can see my pot of rhubarb behind the chair.  It seems to be dealing well with being dug up and put in a pot, and I've got strawberries on the way!

I've seen that there are a lot of questions about if we can transfer tomorrow - the Dr.'s office has stopped doing day 6 transfers because they have found that they have a higher success rate with vitrifying the embryos on day 6 and putting them back on Day 5 of a different cycle.  Something about that being when the endometrium is best prepared for them.  I know that they've got very very exacting rules, and that some of these are new policies there.  I'm hoping it's because they've learned what works the best in their clinic.  As it is, I know that in many other clinics we would have had a transfer today.  

Right now - I'm at home.  My tummy is a bit upset (probably from the coffee, which I don't usually drink anyway, but had this morning because I could)  I've written this post.  I'll probably eat some ice cream.  I may also try to read some of your blogs.

I am so glad that there's a support group meeting tomorrow.  Maybe I can get the last of my crying done there.

**Note:  I think that tomorrow will be the last day of my giveaway, seeing as that will be the last post in this IVF cycle.**



  1. That does really suck. Bleh. I hope the vitrification part works and can have a go the next time around. I had the mtg in my calendar for next Thursday? I could be mistaken. I thought it was the 4th Thurs. We could always set up an impromptu mtg, however. Take care.

  2. I'm so, so sorry. This is so disappointing and heartbreaking. I do hope you're able to transfer them in the next cycle. Thinking of you...

  3. I'm so, so sorry. This is so disappointing and heartbreaking. I do hope you're able to transfer them in the next cycle. Thinking of you...

  4. @YolandaDammit - I got it mixed up again - Plus I ran into Kristina at school yesterday, and now she's coming tomorrow. Yikes!

  5. Sorri Jenni. I am thinking about you.

  6. Sorry to hear that this cycle hasn't worked out as planned... love to you always and hope you enjoyed every drop of your coffee - I certainly did after missing it sooooo much. Love to you always xoxo

  7. Aww crap Jenni.
    crap crap crap.
    This is so disappointing.

    I know how much you want this and it just doesn't seem fair that it has to be so hard. Sending you lots of love (for now) and resiliency (for when you are done grieving this cycle).

    Hang in there.

  8. I'm so sorry. But the clinic has a point. Oliver was a frozen transfer, of a 6-day blast, 5 days post ovulation of a different cycle. Lot's of love, Fran

  9. It sucks not to have something to transfer. On the bright side your chances might be better next cycle than if you transferred this little guy this month.

    I wish I would have had that chance. I might have been successful if we did it that way. I have often wondered if IVF messed up my system too much. Plus, now you can store them up right?

  10. I've been thinking about you so much since yesterday. It's so disappointing to have to be postponed. I am glad you could get your hands busy yesterday. Hugs!

  11. So, so sorry hun. Do you know yet if they were able to freeze both blasts?

  12. Love your blog and thank you so much for all your kind words since I started blogging... it's been lovely to start sharing this journey with you. I've awarded you a Stylish Blogger and/or Versatile blogger Award :)) Follow the link below and join in the fun this Easter :) Love always xoxo
