CD 1 strikes again and, as promised, I'm back. This time armed with more information.
Working with a new RE, Dr. Z, across the bay from where I live. He believes in doing lots of testing. The results are in:
I tested positive for MTHFR gene mutation A1298C - yes, the dreaded F*th*rf*ck*r gene mutation!!!! Dr. Z. prescribed baby.asparin (81 mg) and Fol.gard to help with absorption of Folic acid.
He does special immunological testing. Results are also in:
Positive for NK - Natural Killer cells and TH1 / TH2 intracellular cytokine. He will put me on Fem.ara (after I have a TB test done) and do intralipid injections at transfer.
Needless to say, I'm going out of my frickin' mind.
Part of me is relieved to know WHY our perfect embryos didn't take for IVF #1 along with the FET. The other part just wants to crawl under a rock and cry like a baby ---- Why me???!!!!!!! Why is this happening? Why can't this be easy?
I know I'm not alone in receiving this diagnosis. I'd love to hear your stories (especially your happy endings) and get advice.
I don't feel especially ready to start this cycle. I'm not getting any younger tho. Do I just jump right in? Or do I wait a cycle to "digest" all this?
