Life isn’t always as we plan it

I awoke this morning slightly nervous about our transfer, but excited by our prospects for success. After all, as of the last time the clinic checked on them, we had 6 great looking embryos from a proven donor and the doctor had predicted we would likely have at least 5 blastocysts today.  That would be enough for a transfer, and maybe even some frozens for a sibling later. 

But life doesn’t always work according to plan.  And things did not go exactly as we had hoped today.   Disappointments abounded, but through it all the Reprofit doctors and staff went out of their way to be caring and helpful far above and beyond the call of duty.  I couldn’t have asked for anything more from them.

In the end, we did transfer two embryos and will hope that this brings us the child that I still believe we are meant to have.

    Hey, just catching up with your blog. Congratulations on your transfer and I hope you are resting comfortably now.

    How did this donor do in previous cycles? You mentioned she was a proven donor…is this about on par for her?

    I hope you’ll share more details of the journey your 6 embryos took, but if you’re not up for it, that’s OK.

    Fingers crossed and prayers offered up.
