FET #3 - Over & Out

Our FET was cancelled today. It's over before we even got excited about squeezing in a transfer.

Seems like our run of bad luck is continuing, doesn't it?

This morning's scan showed another cyst on my ovary. They couldn't confirm if it was the one from last month, reborn - or a whole new cyst that sprung up during the stims. There were other follicles there, but most were hardly measurable; meaning that the cyst was taking all of the FSH drugs. My E2 levels were still baseline.

With the cycle being cancelled, we're left out of pocket for clinic expenses - and add in the cost of all the wasted medication, we're up shit creek there. They'll transfer a portion of the cost across for our next cycle, but we'll still be paying the difference. What's another couple of hundred, or thousand dollars, when you've already spent a small fortune on doctor bills and meds and procedures, right?

I started birth control this afternoon. Instead of being happily relaxed on our holidays, I'll be a week into my course of pills, which give me horrible symptoms. Hooray for that. We go for a scan at the end of a month to monitor the cyst, and if it's still there, we continue on the pill.

So, there went our miracle cycle. There went our last shot at a transfer before our baby's due date. There goes another cycle, another month, another SHOT. I'm really questioning my faith over here.

Oh Aly. This is so unfair and my heart is breaking for you. I wish there was something I could do or say to make this easier on you. I'm sending you massive hugs across the ocean and praying things get better for you. Love you lots, sweet friend. <3

((hugs)) I'm so sorry this process is costing you so much emotionally and financially. I'd be planning to take advantage of the one positive and drink my head off while on vacation.

Oh no Aly I'm so sorry. You guys definitely deserve a break. I hope that you are able to relax on your vacation.

I don't blame you for questioning your faith. It's hard to believe in good things in this kind of situation.

On top of everything else, you shouldn't have to pay for the hell that you're going through.

I'm sorry :(
I hope you are able to enjoy your vacation since you won't be cycling during that time. Such a bummer.

Noooo. I really wish things would just start going your way some time. Hoping that your symptoms on holiday will not be terrible. You deserve some indulging after all this.
