I'm new here. I'm 32, my husband has low sperm count and we did our 1st IVF this month- I did mini IVF which is less hormones for less eggs and they transfered 1 embryo on Monday, 5 days ago. That was a day 2 transfer. We have 5 frozen blastocysts (all ICSI) from this cycle as well. Right now I'm just....waiting. I've also been doing acupuncture for about 6 months.
My question is how does everyone seem to stay so positive and hopeful? To be honest if this doesn't work part of me doesn't think I can go through this again? I feel like it has taken a serious toll on my body as well as my mental health - I'm a very emotional person to being with. It's killing me that I can't exercise right now, or have a drink! I feel like I have no outlet. My husband has only 2 blood relatives - his mom and his uncle and so I want to give him a child. But if that wasn't the case I feel like I would be done and try to adopt...maybe this is foolish, I'm just scared of what the future holds.
I hope this post does not upset anyone, thank you for letting me vent.
