My Last Hurrah

Sometime before starting Cycle #8, I decided it would be my last. (Well, maybe.) This time, I strongly lobbied for PBB given my bad luck with blast, but based on my progress during the cycle, embryology wanted to push to Day 5. I was terrified.

They retrieved 15 eggs, but to my complete dismay, only 9 were mature -- a repeat of last cycle. It was particularly disappointing because my estrogen was much higher this time and I was certain there would be more. With only 8 embryos, I was once again delegated to PBB, but instead of being relieved, I just viewed it as a mark of failure. I'm about 2.5 weeks into the wait and not expecting much.

I hope that your long wait brings you much deserved news. Big hugs while you continue to endure.

Ouch - I'm sorry things didn't turn out better. I hope you get your results quickly and even though there may not have been many, perhaps they were better quality this time?? You never know and I continue to hope for you.

Hey, I just found you. I have a RBT 13/14 too. I'm sorry this cycle didn't work out for you...
