Taking a break 

Update: March 10, 2017

Because I needed cheering up.

Because we are taking a (forced) break from fertility treatments. My functional cyst is creating dysfunction. It doesn’t look like IUI is going to work for us. We get to decide whether we go the IVF route or adoption. It’s not an easy decision. There was no pre-determined plan. There isn’t a guide book for this scenario. There are pros and cons for both. We don’t know how to make this decision; a very expensive decision without any guarantees. Update: I am scared of IVF – not completely sure why. I’m not sure I can do it. It’s a lot more invasive. It’s just – a lot more. We always planned on adopting; we thought it was going to be AFTER having biolog
ical children. Adoption will happen; it’s a matter of when.

I was really hoping my birthday present was a positive pregnancy test. I wish I could learn to not set myself up for disappointment.

  1. Pretty rose! I’m so sorry you’re in that predicament. Is it possible that you might still have IUI work in the future? Those decisions are so hard to make. We’ve chosen to pursue adoption at this point rather than IVF, but I know some people are so happy with their IVF choice. Regardless, it’s just so very hard to deal with infertility and all these choices and risks and sacrifices and heart breaks. So glad you have a loving supportive hubby and can lean on each other. Sending support your way in whatever you choose! You’ll find a way.


    • It’s possible that IUI might work but I don’t think I can handle all the waiting and hoping that my hormones align and that the cysts stays away. It’s almost been a year and we’ve only been able to do 2 IUI’s. I ovulate too early in my cycle. And I have a gut feeling that clomid is creating those cysts. I’m also frustrated with the level of care and communication we’ve received from our clinic. There is only one other option in our area and we haven’t heard good things about them either. I initially was going to “trust our doctor” but it’s time I did some research and talking with other people in more detail. We’ll see where it takes us.

      Good luck with adoption!
