Well I have been looking back at my old posts and my sister's cycle is going very similar to my first IVF cycle. Let's just hope the results are different. So my sister is now on Day 8 of stimming and she has 6 (ish) measureable follicles. The lead two follicles are 1.6, there is another one that measures 1.5, then close behind are two that are 1.4 and finally the last little straggler is a wee 1.1. They don't think the little one will make it to the retrieval so I am not sure why they even count it. My sister is over the moon but I can't say I feel the same way. I don't want to be a Debbie Downer but they just aren't the results that I wanted. I guess the thoughts going through my head are: Why would we pay $6000 for the retrieval with so few follicles/eggs? What if only a couple fertilize? What are the chances we will get high quality embryos? Will we even get any frosties? What if he follicles are empty like mine were? I am back where I was last Decemeber. Only now I am more jaded and have less money in the bank. I think I mentioned before that my sister offered to go through the stimming process again but I know if we go through with the retrieval I won't be able to ask her again. What would you ladies do? Would you continue to the retrieval? Would you save the money to pursue other options (adoption/egg donor)
Sorry for not commenting on anyones blogs, something is wrong with my blogger and it just kicks me out when I try!!
