Well, That Just F*cking Sucks...

Today was our WTF appointment with RE. Due to the way our IVF went, he doesn't recommend going through another one. He thinks that the quality of my eggs leaves A LOT to be desired. So, he recommends other options. Egg donation or Adoption.

While both sound great to most. Adoption is not on the table for us as a couple. At least not yet. We have nothing against it. We just don't feel like it is the right direction for us.

Egg donation however, is something totally different. This is something that we (at the moment) are OK with pursuing.

I delivered the news to my mom today, who understandably took it pretty hard. I'm right there with her. I've always thought about what it would be like to have my own baby. Right now, that thought isn't even really in my head at the moment. I know that miracles happen. So, Rick and I will keep doing what we're doing and maybe, just maybe, we'll get that miracle.

I'm so sorry for such devistating news. I wish you had gotten a better report.

I am (obviously) a huge supporter of Donor families. But it took me a while to process. When/if you ever feel like talking to someone about it, you know where to find me.

HUGS

You're right, that does suck.

I'm glad that despite that, you have an option that you and hubby are okay with. That's something.

Thinking of you.

Have you ever heard of "Snowflake Adoptions"? You can adopt embryos that are ready to be put in the womb, but are kept in cold storage because the parents have abandoned them. Sort of the best of both worlds--adoption and being able to carry and birth your own baby.

Oh I am so sorry to hear this awful news. There is no way around it, it does F-ing suck.

I am also thankful for the donor egg option which has such great success. I hope that this will be the vehicle to get you to your baby.

I am so very sorry- you must be devastated. Don't hold back here, vent away. We are all listening.

HUGE hugs.

So sorry kerri. It's hard when our options become more and more limited. I guess the good news is that there are still options. Definitely second pp, vent, vent, vent to us.

My friend did donor eggs, and now she's pregnant. Her first blog was on Conceive: http://conceiveonline.com/someone-elses-eggs

Now her pregnancy blog is here:

big hugs!!!
