HI All and LexiAnn :)
I didn't post yet on this thread, I did yesterday on another.
Yesterday did not go well at all. I'm still trying to wrap my head around it all. My u/s showed two sacs still but neither had grown, at all. The first sac is now misshapen and whatever may have been growing in it has stopped. The second sac is still empty. Neither grew beyond 5w6d. I am almost 9 weeks. My body hasn't figured it out yet once again that they didn't make it. Yes, I'm devastated, but I knew the chance I would take. I am meeting with my ob on Monday to determine best course from here. As much as I want nature to run it's course, a d&c is not good for anyone's system, right?, I really hope they would be able to test what's there to see if we're missing something and will test for it next time around.
My nurse loves to tell my I have old eggs. I'm really sick of hearing that, I know plenty of 40-somethings who are able to get pregnant ~ and keep it! I've been spending my morning researching what I can take as a supplement to increase egg quality. Apparently, it is possible. I have to focus on selling my house at the moment , so another cycle won't be possible for another few months anyway, so maybe the distraction will help.
I'm open to advice across the board. I hate that I'm 40 and have wasted so much time trying to get this far. Time is definitely working against me.
Thank you to everyone who has supported me to this point, I will still post here and there and keep in touch, but I really want to focus on getting this done right for the next time. I'm also contacting other clinics in my area who do PGD, apparently there are many including Mass General (top hospital!!!) and they're my first call.
I honestly think my next cycle I will test for gender only, I'll take more chances that way I know, but given the odds that I am throwing away good embies based on 1 cell, I'd rather take all boy embies and see what happens.
if you want to email me if you can't find me, its bcorso hotmail.
