My husband, David, and I had been trying to have a baby since November of 2007. After 'letting things happen', we got the amazing news that we were pregnant in June of 2008. Sadly, that pregnancy ended at 9 weeks with a natural miscarriage. After two more chemical pregnancies, we turned to fertility treatments in 2009. That decision was a disaster, with lousy medical care and poor monitoring. In December of 2009, we made the huge decision to move onto IVF. Things fell into place like magic and we began treatment on January 15, 2010. After a blighted ovum in March, we did a successful FET in June, only to endure another blighted ovum in July. We kept up and underwent another IVF in September/October of 2010 with the arrival of our son, Brogan in July of 2011! After our lovely success (finally) we decided to undertake yet another IVF treatment and hope for a sibling for our little red headed boy. Well... so far it's worked. Our story continues below!

It's strange being 7 days past ovulation when you never ovulated at all.  LOL  I guess on my support sites for ivf patients, I'm 2dp5dpt  which means 2 days past 5 day (old embryos) transfer.  Not sure if it's different when it's a FET (Frozen Embryo Transfer), but anyhow, I am about two days from a possible bfp, and about six days from a true definitive answer. 

The transfer went well.  One embryo didn't survive, which I kind of expected, so we had two average embryos and one that had already hatched.  Two of them had started to 'plump' nicely which is great news.  It's said that frozen embryos seem to implant later than fresh ones.  Takes them some time to rehydrate and get comfy before they grab on.  So I'm kind of expecting a later than usual positive test if there is one to be had.  Most likely around 10 dpo or 11dpo before I get a line, if there is one. 

We have had a very relaxing and stress free trip to the city.  I wanted the time away from work and stress so that I can give these little beings the best chance possible.  I don't think there's anything else I could have done in this case.  If we aren't successful... well... we've survived it so far, so I guess we'll deal with it. 

Thanks for all the support..... I can use all the good wishes out there!
