IVF is where they take the woman's eggs out of her body and fertilize them with sperm in a petri dish. Once they develop into embryos, one embryo gets implanted back into the woman's uterus. Think test tube babies.
What it means for us is that I have to take a lot of fertility medications to increase my egg production. Then on the 20th of March, I will go in and have surgery and they will remove all of my eggs that they can. They will fertilize those with the hubby's sperm and once they develop into embryos, they will take small samples from those and send them to a lab in California. We are paying extra to have the genetics tested. Once we get the genetic results back, we have to wait another month for my cycle to start and then we can implant the genetically viable embryos. Actually we will just implant one embryo as we aren't really up for quintuplets at this time. The other viable embyos can be frozen at the clinic if we want to have another child (or if it doesn't work).
We are hoping for at least 8 embryos out of the fertilization process and at least one (but hopefully more) to be genetically viable. If things go according to plan, I believe they would implant sometime in June. Fingers crossed!
