IVF vs Adoption

For some reason, my brain can only process one or the other.

After hearing about how a friend is coping, I can't imagine the pain of a failed IVF cycle. I'd rather go for the torturous wait of adoption if it comes to that. I honestly don't think I'm strong enough.

I wish there was a surefire way to get pregnant.

How do you IVFers do it?


  1. I think it's a really though decision and you have to make the choice that's right for you.
    For me, what keeps me going is that I tell myself that if I don't do this now, in 10 or 20 years if I look back will I say "I wish I've done that or tried again." I want to do whatever I can, without regrets.
    I also tend to look more forward at what will be as opposed to what could have been and that helps with moving along.


  2. This surefire way to get pregnant - you'll tell me when you discover it, right?

  3. I'm in the same camp as Spacey - although we've discussed TDI & adoption (bc hubs thinks adoption's cheaper than IVF... obviously he hasn't done any research on this...) I feel that I have to give our 100% biological child a chance.
