Moving right along

Dear Rowan,
We have a cycle review scheduled for March 10 with Dr. V. I called nurse Cindy yesterday because I hadn't heard from them and it seemed like enough time had passed. Turns out, they don't do cycle review appointments unless you request it, which I think is odd. Even the docs at Walter Reed called us in Italy to go over our cycle.
Nurse Cindy said she'd tentatively put us on the schedule for an April FET, depending on what Dr. V has to say during our appointment. I just don't know if we should jump into our frozen cycle without first trying to figure out why our fresh cycle failed. It seemed so promising with two good looking blasts that I was sure were destined to be you.
I read somewhere that some women have more success with frozen cycles. The theory being that since you don't have to do the stim meds or endure the retrieval, your body is less stressed. So, fingers crossed, prayers said that it will be the case for us and you'll be on your way.
Odd that in doing an Internet search for FET success rates, I stumble upon a blog entry written back in 2007 by a woman who held little hope for her FET and after reading a few of her posts (her FET didn't work) I became curious as to how it all turned out for her. So, I fast fowarded to her latest post and lo and behold she has twins. Beautiful, perfect, snotty nosed toddler twins. One boy. One girl.
So, this stuff does work, Rowan.
I just have to keep reminding myself of that fact.


  1. It's good to hear reminders that this can work. It's hard to believe sometimes.

    PS- By mentioning you in my blog, that means you got the award too! ;)

  2. Thanks so much for your kind words on my blog, they mean a lot to me:) Praying that this FET cycle brings you little Rowan.
