Well it’s been a little bit since I first posted about our IVF journey. We had our consultation back at the end of June. They ordered a genetic carrier screening test for me to see if I was a carrier for anything on that screen and it did come back that I am a carrier for two different things on there that can both potentially be very life-threatening. So the next step is going to be to test my husband to see if he is also a carrier for those things. After we do that we will finish up our blood test and the semen analysis then go from there. We will hopefully be ready for a transfer around October or November.
I will attach a picture that tells you what the two things are that I am a carrier for. I could also potentially be a carrier for other things as well as my husband just things that they don’t test for on that screen especially my husband with him having the hypoplastic left heart syndrome and the cleft lip and palate so we have a lot of decisions to make but also depends on what the semen analysis says because he potentially could not have the ability to have kids.
