What happens to any extra embryos that aren't inserted? There is no way that I would kill them. But could we keep them on ice forever? Now I know at this point this is just speculation because I haven't even started the process yet and may not even get any fertilized embryos. My husband thinks I've stepped into crazy Catholisism here. We are both Catholic and go to church semi-regularly. And I don't follow all of the church's beliefs. But I do believe that life begins at conception. Even if it does happen in a petri dish. And any little embryos that are created in that dish would be our children. So I would not allow them to be destroyed. We talked about saving them for later on for future children. But I've read about some women having upwards of 9 frozen embryos. To reiterate, I know that it is silly to think of this stuff now. That I may not even end up with a lot of embryos, or I might use them up just to get pregnant with one healthy child. Who knows. We are still only just starting to talk about this stuff.
I go in this afternoon to have the balloon removed from my uterus. Hopefully things are healing o.k. in there. I started acupuncture again just as an extra help. I really couldn't deal with any more scar tissue problems. And I have an eight week protocol of estradiol/prometrium, estradiol/prometrium. And a saline sonogram to check the lining of the uterus and to break up any new adhesions that may form. After that we will resume treatments. So it is back to waiting around. But at least we can take the time to really think things through.
