February 2014 ICLW

Ooppss.... we are more than halfway through ICLW of February!  Happy ICLW!  Sorry for the late post.

If you are visiting for the first time, or have not been here in a while, here's a quick catch up on where I am right now.  At the end of January, Babe and I had our second frozen embryo transfer (FET) of our adopted embryos.  We worked with the National Embryo Donation Center (NEDC) and flew to Knoxville, TN for our transfer.  We transferred 3 blastocysts (day 5 embryos).  You can read about our transfer here.

We were over the moon when we found out during our first beta that we were not only pregnant, but with a pretty high beta number of 159.  However, we were shocked and devastated to find out at our second beta that our number had dropped to only 44, and again to 20 at our third beta.  We were having another chemical pregnancy.  We had our first chemical pregnancy at our first transfer in January.

We have had 2 chemical pregnancies so far, and we plan to go back to NEDC in May for another transfer.  We are currently in the process of matching with another donor family.  We hope to complete this process in the next couple of weeks.

I'd love for you to join me on our (long) journey to parenthood.


  1. i had a similar experience. My numbers were good the first beta but dropped by the second beta. I was devastated so I know EXACTLY how you feel. Praying for you girl and I'll be following your story.
