Moving Clinics

A new cycle - with not a lot of things going on - pill taking, getting back to the gym & hoping the next few weeks go by quickly.

This time last year, I was getting ready to transfer our first frozen embryo & we had so much hope. Sure, we'd been trying to get pregnant for a while before that on our own - but that was to be our first shot back on the IVF bandwagon, our first go at using one of the embryos from the batch that got us Georgia. And then, actually GETTING pregnant from that cycle - seeing our blobby baby, hearing his heartbeat, watching him grow... well, we know how that ended, but oy.

It's been a long time that we've been back here again, and it's been a long time since I was pregnant.

If we're lucky, we'll cycle again in July. But for that to happen, our embryos need to be moved across to the new clinic first. The new clinic is on board and ready to go, but our old clinic is proving to be a little more difficult. First, they've taken a week to put me in touch with the correct person to speak to - who as it turns out was lovely & very helpful - but they charge a $450 fee for preparing embryos for transport, and need original documents to be received, sent & witnessed before that can happen. That's all good and perfectly reasonable.. I'm just frustrated that it's taking so long to get this sorted, when our egg pick-up was two weeks ago now.

My guts are definitely telling me that we're doing the right thing by moving clinics. I wish we'd done it sooner, but that's all hindsight. In the meantime, all I'm hoping for is a smooth transition.

Oh, it's so frustrating that they aren't being efficient with this! I hope you can get the next step of this process going ASAP.

Argh, it's like a bad breakup. You would think they could be a little more understanding considering their mistake handling the freezing. They should just let you go on your way! :(

Goodness, woman. It is time for you to get a break. Lawsy.
