Transfer Day & January 2014 ICLW


Hello ICLWers!

I just realized that I missed the last 2 months of ICLWs.  Oh well, November ICLW was right around first transfer, and December, it was just a crazy month with Christmas.

Well this ICLW is an exciting time for me.  Today, we are are having our frozen embryo transfer for our adopted embryos at 12:45 pm EST.   Depending on when you are reading this, I may already be PUPO (pegnant until proven otherwise).  We are working with The National Embryo Donation Center (NEDC) in Knoxville, TN.  We adopted frozen embryos through them which we will transfer and hope that we can be pregnant and carry our adopted child(ren).

This is actually our second try at NEDC.  In November, we transferred two excellent quality embryos at NEDC.  Unfortunately, it resulted in a chemical pregnancy.  So we back to try again.  Prior to this, we had gone through over 9 years of trying to start our family......... Clo.mid, IUIs, IVFs and surgeries.  Originally we were diagnosed with unexplained infertility but towards the end, I was diagnosed with low quality eggs during our IVFs.  We decided to adopt instead.  We started going down the international adoption route but switched over to embryo adoption because we felt that was the better choice for us.

If you new to my blog, or if you'd like to see where we've been on our journey, you can see the highlights on the Our Journey So Far page.  Stick around to see how this things play out in the next couple of months.
