I am at the allergist with egg yolks and whites all over my arm. They are trying to determine if I am allergic to eggs.  I react to them sometimes and apparently intralipids are egg based?

FET Audience

Since we have 4 frozen normal embryos, we are leaning towards attempting a frozen embryo transfer soon.  I don’t have much confidence that I can carry a baby to full-term, so I suspect the FET process is something I will not highlight online (at this blog, or on the various forums where I participate) at all.     It is very painful to lose a baby and I believe that hurt is amplified after IVF and the transfer of a PGS normal embryo.

I know this blog is a resource for so many women looking for answers, so please try to understand It was painfully hard for me lose my baby in front of a virtual audience in 2012. I will however, list the proposed immune protocol from my doctors when it is finalized.


Our two embryos are chromosomally normal. One boy. One girl.

This happened to us? Are you sure this isn’t someone else’s reality? I mean, I was on the calendar at my clinic to start cycle #9 on 8/18.

My overwhelming reaction was just relief. Relief that I do not have to endure any more IVF cycles. Relief that we can actually create blasts. Relief that we can actually create blasts with normal chromosomes.

I guess now we need to plan Next Steps[tm]. However, there is also some relief in knowing I don’t have to do that just yet.
