I am a mom to amazing twin girls, a wife, and I work full time. I battled infertility for 2 years and over the course of treatments, a twin pregnancy, and raising twins I managed to gain about 80 lbs. I’ve lost about 50 lbs so far and would like to lose another 50 in my quest to become a hot mama.

FET attempt #2........FAIL

I am noticing a common trend in my blogs lately.  FAIL.

Seems like my body can't do ANYTHING right!  Went in today and despite increasing my Follistim from 100 to 150, there was no follie growth and the lining actually shrunk just a little.

I am not sure what the next step is.  I think there is something wrong with me.  I don't know where we should start looking.  I would think that one year in treatment and 30K later at 25 years old I'd be pregnant.  Such is not the case.

Where do I go from here?


  1. I'm so sorry Emily. I would rest, give yourself some time to grieve and then figure out to do next. Right now you should just focus on you and your hubby!


  2. Oh man! It would seem that after ALL that you've been through that surely you'd be pregnant by now!! I am SO SO sorry that you keep being disapointed. I'd say your next step should be cracking open a few beers tonight!!! I hope things start to turn around for you SOONER than later. ((hugs))

  3. Thanks everyone! Priscilla...I think there is a bottle of wine with my name on it! FML!!!

  4. Wine, although it doesn't "cure" anything, sure does friggen help!! I'm sorry you're dealing with this again :(

  5. Damn, I'm sorry! Enjoy the wine!

  6. What a bummer. So sorry to hear that. :( Sending hugs your way...

  7. UGH. That's so frustrating!! I'm sorry =(

  8. Oh no!! I was totally not expecting to see this post, I thought all was well. =( I cannot imagine your frustration right now. I am so sorry, Emily. I hope they figure out what's going on soon so you don't have to deal with this anymore ...

  9. I am so sorry to read this. Do your docs have any explanation? I echo many others- maybe take some time off to think about what paths are before you and which one is for you guys. I will be praying for you!
