fertilization

Only 3 fertilized.

It's pretty much over.

T and I will not be having biological children together.

It's on to the next step. Sperm donation.

We will get the final word on Saturday.

I'm so very sorry. My heart aches for you because I know how much it hurts. And yet you still have to wait because it's not over yet. And waiting sucks too. You're incredibly strong to have gotten through this much.

Please call or email if you need anything at all. I'll be thinking of you.

Hey, looks like we are in the same boat. Maybe our few little embies will make it to transfer, huh? Supposedly we only need 1 good egg! Meh... I am in the "won't make it" funk too. I'm scared to death we won't have any to transfer at all.

Hey, if you don't mind - email me direct, I have a protocol question for you... Wanting to compare notes about the transfer info you've gotten.

I'm so sorry. I hate the waiting. If you need anything, please call me or e-mail.

As you know me and my man are in the same boat, don't know quite where we are going next. But it looks like a biological child is not in the cards for us. We're waiting on test results that will determine this, and we won't receive them until July 9th. Waiting is the worst!!!

Thinking of you. Feel free to contact me if you need anything.

Sarah said...

oh no rachel, i'm so sorry. i'm still hoping your perfect little embryo is in this batch even though i completely understand why you're giving up. who's to say that one-in-whatever isn't one of these four?

Oh Rachel. I am so sorry.

Crossing my fingers for a miracle on Saturday.

Please PLEASE call me if you need ANYTHING, ok?

I am with Serenity and hoping for a miracle.

I am sorry only 3 have fertilized.

Sara said...

I'm so sorry. It's just so unfair, and so unnecessarily painful.

I will be hoping for a miracle for you, but I can understand why you're having trouble hoping for yourself. A million hugs.

Mary Ellen and Steve said...

I am so sorry Rachel. I will be praying for a miracle over here. Stranger things have happened. Sending you a big hug.

Tina said...

I am so sorry. I hope and pray that the embies that are struggling to make it get to a transfer. I will be watching...

5 pulled and 3 fertilized-- did they give you a maturity rating? I had 5 pulled, 3 fertilized-- we'll be putting them back in tomorrow-- and are hoping it will work. I am sorry you didn't get the number you were hoping for... I hope they make it to transfer! I keep my fingers and toes crossed for luck for you.

Yikes! Both of you must be hurting so much....

In case it helps, I will also keep hoping for a miracle. In the off chance that it could make a difference, I will do a bunch of sun salutations for you tomorrow morning!

XOXO
