When “slightly pregnant” turns to “definitely not pregnant”

I went in for a second blood test today and it came back completely negative. I figured as much would happen. It seems my body has absolutely no interest in being pregnant. Lucky me.

Once I start a new cycle I’ll call the clinic and find out what the next step is. We very fortunately still have 5 frozen embryos to try and get a baby or two from. Hopefully one of them will work!

We’ve already decided that once those 5 embryos are gone, that’s it. We’re not going through this whole process again. It is an incredibly painful journey that sometimes just doesn’t have a happy ending, even for someone who walked into a fertility clinic at 24 years old and was told they would not walk out without a baby.

  1. Just wanted to say that its so unbelievably annoying that docs don’t seem to grasp that young women experience infertility as well… I was 26 when I started IVF and told the exact same thing. After 1 fresh and 1 frozen failed attempts I took a long break (we had no embryos left over). Now I’m starting up again but we’re only doing 2 more rounds (1 fresh, 1 frozen if needed) before moving to adoption. I think its really healthy to set boundaries for yourself. Wishing you the best of luck!
