No Good, Very Bad News

I was feeling pretty good when my e2 came back at 1800 yesterday.

Then they had me in today.

I just got the phone call my e2 had dropped again to 1350.

I only had 3 mature follicles at the ultrasound this morning with tons of little ones that will amount to nothing now.

My body is trying to ovulate on it's own.

And they are making me trigger tonight.

I am going in for the egg retrieval Sunday morning, I will be lucky to get a handful of eggs.

How do you talk yourself through an egg retrieval when you feel like it's already doomed?



  1. I'm so sorry. Sometimes the worst looking cycles end up with the best results.

  2. Ugh -- so sorry to hear this! Can you opt to cancel the cycle instead? Does that even make sense? I know you have invested a lot of time and money into it.

    On the bright side, my daughter is proof that one good embryo can turn into a sweet, adorable, sassy baby. (that's all we had to transfer when the time came)

    Wishing you much love and peace.

  3. I'm sorry. It only takes one. It worked last time I'm praying your handful is a mighty handful!!

  4. If we'd cancelled my poor cycle (only 3 eggs) we would never have gotten Georgia - sometimes, even with the disappointments, 3 QUALITY eggs could be all you need for that second little baby. x

  5. I'm so sorry. I wish you some really good quality eggs. You just need one to work out for you.
