Today has been hard. I feel like I need to recap the long and winding road that we have had on our journey towards baby no. 2.
After long discussions, went to the clinic to talk about the future and starting treatment again. Took the first-ever ERA test, which indicated my best transfer date to be DPO 6.
Time passed, we struggled with our relationship, I was too tired to do anything about anything.
June 2018, we start treatments for our first retrieval cycle. Midsummer bank holiday ruins everything, no retrieval.
August 2018, 1st retrieval cycle: 9 eggs retrieved, NONE make it past day 2. No transfer.
September 2018: 2nd retrieval cycle: 9 eggs, a stunning total of 6 eggs mature into blastocysts. 1 fresh transfer, 5 embryos put into the freezer.
October 2018: 1st transfer, fresh embryo transfer. Bleeding starts within a few days of transfer. Fail.
November 2018: 2nd transfer, fail.
December 2018: No treatment because of Christmas holidays
January 2019: Transfer no 3, fail. Questions about the timing bother me with all the failed tries.
January 25, 2019: Talk with the doctor about the timing and maybe retaking the ERA test.
February 2019: multiple visits to the clinic, wondering about the ERA test and finding out from the ERA lab what they think about a retake.
February 26, 2019: 2nd ERA test, results ambiguous, a new test needed.
March 2019, 3rd ERA test, taken on two separate days.
April 2019: Results of the new ERA test indicate best day to be DPO 4.
April 9, transfer no. 4.
April 23: Negative bloodtest.
1,5 years. 3 ERA tests, 4 transfers. 0 babies.
