Hurry Up and Wait

At the moment, we’ve stalled out. All our blood work and testing is done, but we discovered there’s more to be done before we can start our first IVF cycle. 

Chris and I were both raised by parents who don’t believe in vaccinations. Like any. At all. You’re thinking that’s crazy, right? Theres a lot of controversy about these types of choices today. As much as we love our parents, we likely won’t make the same choices for our own children. 

Before we can start treatment, our doctor said we must get the MMR, varicella, and TDaP vaccines. We will have to wait a month before starting our fertility treatment. While I’m happy to comply, the news about timing is a bummer. 

Chris’s work schedule also gets very busy in April/May, which concerns me a bit. Since Chris has no vas deferens, he has to get the MESA procedure done to get his sperm the same time as my egg retrieval. This may complicate things, but for now we just have to be patient. Cue the Jeopardy theme song…

    I am so sorry to hear about your extended wait time. I find waiting to be one of the hardest parts of this process because I like to be in control of things and feel productive. We also have had wait time added on here and there, but especially because we have a gestational carrier involved as well and there are so many hoops to jump through. Do your best to take your mind off of it (I know, that’s pretty much impossible), and I’ll be hoping this month goes quickly for you!
