A Difficult Decision

If you read one of my last posts, you would know that Mike and I are currently working on our finances so that we can hopefully buy my MIL's beautiful house in the next year or two. With that being said, we are trying to cut out unnecessary costs. Right now we are getting charged $42 every month to store our 3 frozen embryos. Mike wants to be done having kids. I want one more. I've always wanted two children. A part of me thinks I would be okay with just one, but then again I thought that I would be okay without any and now I am the happiest mama in the world. If we did decide that we are done, I don't feel right destroying our potential children and I don't want to donate them because I can't bare the thought of someone else raising our child(ren). Don't get me wrong, I think it is amazing when parents can do that for other couples, I just personally would have a hard time with it. Even if we did decide to transfer the embryos into my uterus, I have a fear that all 3 would result in triplets. I can't handle that. LOL.

I want to know why we (infertiles) go through so much to have children and then get faced with such difficult decisions. It's just not fair. I know that whatever our decision is, we will have a great life whether it is the three of us or one, two, or three more. ;) We have the happiest little boy who fills our lives with joy. We are truly blessed.

Totally with you on this subject. I feel totally blessed with our little guy but that decision is there for us too.

Funny you bring this up because I brought this subject up recently when we got the bill. Al though we had the option to transport them to another storage place for cheaper we have to decide if we are going to transfer our remaining embryos when the time comes. Decisions decisions.

Just my .02 but I wouldn't make the decision just yet. Your cutie is not even a year old and you guys may change your mind when he gets a little older. Going through treatment is sooo expensive and to have three frosties is awesome. I would hate for you guys to regret not having another kid because you wanted to save that monthly payment.
