Hello Girls......sorry this is long, but I want to explain in detail what happened today.
Well today was bitter/sweet. I got the news I expected to hear, the transplant most likely won't produce an egg, but he did explain why. What's been missing (other than an egg) is the fluid support that the ovarian tissue needs when it is in it's normal place. He consulted with other RE's around the world and they are all having the same issue. One of the good parts for me is, science now knows that doesn't work, and they can move in another direction. I was upset for a second, then he said something that took the weight off of my shoulders. He began to talk about Donor Egg and Donor Embie, as we were talking my DH spoke up and said, "we have talked about both, and we would be interested in Donor Embryos, the biological part is not important to us", and you know, I didn't think I was ready to make that step when I walked in there, however, hearing the news I expected, we are perfectly fine with Donor Embie. He said that they would put a few matchs together and then give us the medical profiles to chose from. He said that he would have anywhere from 3 to 5 HIGH QUALITY PGD Embies for me (so there not just someone's crappy lefovers), and would put 2 or 3 back. He feels I have about a 40% chance per embie he puts back, so he is confident it will work. They have a lot of people on the list, however, given my case, I am the next one to pick. As it looks right now, we are looking to do the FET in September/October, but it might be sooner. He started me on BCP's to get me ready. I have to say, we are so excited. For the first time I feel like we are really going for something and we have something to look forward to that could have a very positive result.
Thanks so much for being supportative, we have made a wonderful decision and we are both very happy that the RE was sensitive and willing to go that extra step, he said he knew how important it was for us to be parents, and he thought that experience pregency would be a good thing.
Ok..I am beat....i have a long day tomorrow so I am heading off to bed. I will catch up on personals later.
