If you know that you have to undergo IVF to conceive again, you need to bite the bullet and get on with it. Ask your family doctor for a new referral to your infertility clinic and then make an appointment to see the IVF doctor. Your IVF doctor will arrange for you to have any tests that need updating, then you can see the IVF nurse and get your instructions to start another IVF cycle (refer to Chapter 5 for a refresher on what the cycle entails). Having been there and done that already, you won't find the IVF experience as daunting as when you started your first cycle.
Going back to IVF for baby number two can be easier in some ways because you know the ropes and what to expect. But the disappointment you feel if the treatment doesn't work isn't easier to take the second time around. And don't listen to people who say you should be grateful that you've been successful already: If you want another baby, you're entitled to feel sad if the treatment doesn't work.
