Definitely know where you are coming from. I feel the same way sometimes. I never in a ZILLION years thought I would be saying, "On my 3rd IVF.........". I just feel like I am never gonna have that little one in my life.
We are even now going to use DP as a surrogate to my 7 frozen embies (maybe we'll have more after this 3rd IVF). If DP's uterus doesn't look good we also have a backup plan with DP's cousin and sister as surrogates (they both volunteered to help!!!).

I am sure you have weighed all your options, but since you are open to adoption I wanted to tell you that foster to adopt through your county might be a good option. It's free and they even freakin' pay you until your adoption goes through. It's minimal, but it certainly will come in handy for diapers, formula, or for starting a small college fund!!!

I also worry about having an unhealthy baby. After all this IVF stuff we are all just way too informed about this sort of thing. Wouldn't it be nice if we could all just be oblivious to how our bodies work???

I feel your pain, my friend.
