Failed IVF WTF appointment

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.

    I was torn about my current break too and it still bugs me every day how old I’ll be when I get to try again.

    The rest is probably good though so try to get the most out of it.

    I’m a silent lurker but wanted to let you know you are in my thoughts.

    I’m so sorry! Yes, WTF appointment does seem apt.

    The offer still stands for a beer in San Diego whenever you’re ready!

    I’m sorry. I’m glad the doctor recommended a break though, so you weren’t stuck making a tough decision. I’m hoping the few months off will allow your mind & body to heal a little in preparation for the transfer.

    Rest your body and don’t forget to rest your mind, soul and heart too, sweetie.
