  1. oh wow no wonder you needed a break. You’ve gone through so much. A break would be necessary. I hope that everything goes smoothly for you in this upcoming cycle. 🙂

  2. Seems from your timeline you’re still deciding about PGD? We are too. If this IUI doesn’t take (we’re operating under the assumption it won’t) we’re moving to IVF. PGD weighs heavily on us. Seems so many embryos are lost in the process and the cost is so high, yet it if truly lowers the miscarriage rate it’s so worth it.

    I’ll be following your journey and truly hope 2014 is a kind year for pregnancy/fertility.
