Pardon my French, but I recently saw this expression in another blog and found it perfect for describing the first doctor’s appointment after a failed IVF cycle. I have actually calmed down enough to avoid entering the gynecologist’s office asking "why hasn’t it worked this time either!??!" with a WTF tone..
We have two frozen embies: one of good quality, the other not so good. I had already decided I needed a break and that we would do the transfer after summer. But my decision was not so firm since I also wanted to do the transfer as soon ad possible. Had the gynaecologist proposed to start immediately, I don’t know if i would have had the strenght to say no.
Luckily enough she recommended taking a few months to rest. She talked about my body needing rest and so on. But to be honest I feel my mind needs even more rest.
So here we are about to take another 3-4 month break. Not so ready yet to decide what to do with all this time but at least the big decision to wait is taken.
