Is Nothing Something?

My post title may be confusing but it should be! I had my sonohysterogram today (yeah, that was crampy and uncomfortable!) and everything looked clear and perfect. Of course this is good news! I have a history of fibroids and would not have wanted to go through their removal again. But, at the same time, it would have been a possible explanation as to why the last three embryo transfers did not work.
So, we will continue on. In another three weeks or so, we will have our last attempt with our fourth frozen embryo transfer. The only things I will do differently is eating more red meat and starting my prenatal vitamins earlier. I really don't think there is a lot one can do to increase the chances. I eat healthy (most of the time) and walk regularly for exercise. I am normal weight for my height.
I am feeling positive and that is all I can do. My husband and I are looking for closure, either way. We have been at this since October of 2012 and we are tired. This is hard on a relationship and it has been hard on my body, physically and emotionally. We look forward to being pregnant and at the same time, we look forward to moving on with our wonderful daughter.

  4. I really hope this one is successful! Can't you just take your prenatals all the time? That's what I do. I am vegetarian so I hope no one tells me to eat more red meat, lol! Good luck!
