If DC #1 was IVF and you're IVF'ing for DC #2....February 17 2007 at 1:11 PM

Dang....read that title and realized it looks like some freakish top secret code!
Anyway....if you're going the IVF route again in TTC #2 are you doing anything different?
Our IVF for DS was not pretty....only 3 eggs retrieved out of 7 antrals.
I'm wondering if my protocol should be tweeked or if we should just stick with what we know produced viable eggs? You know the old "quality over quantity" argument?
Any thoughts you can share on how it's different the second time around?

We got preg on first IVF try. We're now on our 4th IVF cycle TTC #2. I have not noticed much difference with the protocol, but I've noticed that I've been different. Less relaxed, less focused on the process, less likely to do the little things that are supposed to help, like acupuncture, praying or meditating, eating certain foods. I don't know how much of that contributes to our failures, but it bothers me. But then again, how am I supposed to be relaxed and have time for myself with a 2 year old running around? It's just a whole different life now...one I wouldn't trade!

For sharing your experiences.
I certainly hope that #4 does the trick.
I honestly don't know if I have it in me to TTC again for that long.
I'm so greatful for the one we have. He may very well be our only and I'll be fine with that if it comes to it!
You're my hero!
Hope to see you post your BFP soon!
Where are you in this IVF cycle?
beta is tomorrow (Thursday)

I will poas in the morning because I can't wait all day for that phone call! I'm feeling pretty positive about this one, but trying not to get my hopes up. We transferred two 8-cells. Not sure about the grade. They called them a "1", but I thought the grades were letters.
Hang in there.
