Bad Eggs

Well, My cycle review went good, I guess. He told me I have bad eggs. The rest of the cycle went great, except that my eggs are poor quality and they weren't growing fast enough, so they didn't implant. This is not really what I wanted to hear, but what are you gonna do. I felt very comfortable with my Dr. and he really gave me some hope that it WILL work this time around. We will change a few things, maybe my meds and do a few more test. He will be doing a ?Hystersonogram?. He will take a camera and look in my uterus. Great, right? Who wants to hear they have bad eggs and that he will be looking in my uterus. Not looking forward to that. We also talked about when we will do this again. He said to make sure I am relaxed and don't have alot going on........I have a 9yr old daughter, so if we were waiting for NOTHING to be going on, this would never happen! I think we will take this month and relax, then start meds next month. Which means my egg retrieval would be in May. I guess that works for us. It is really hard to fork out that kind of money again, with no guarantee. Its scary, but we are willing.
I'm getting excited about it again. Not excited for the daily shots in the butt, but just thought of another baby makes the shots well worth it. I will update anything new as it comes along!

Cycle Review

Well, tomorrow is our cycle review. I'm hoping to get some answers. I want someone to give me a REASON why I'm not pregnant now. I know this happens but, I didn't think it would happen to me. Our last cycle we put back 3 embryos, we were worried about triplets. It never crossed our mind that we might not get pregnant at all. Not until we got that phone call saying I wasn't pregnant. Talk about a huge letdown. I had no idea how hard that was going to be.
I am definitely ready to do this again, I think. I should say I'm ready as long as I get pregnant this time!
So, I think we will have some information tomorrow about what is next. I don't know if he will Change our protocol, or leave it the same. I feel like something should change, since it didn't work last time. Who know, I could get there tomorrow and decide I don't want to do it again........ I really don't know. This whole process is such a roller coaster ride. One second you really think you know what your doing and the next, your completely lost. I just hope he(my doc) has a good plan. I will update tomorrow, with the new plans!!!!!!!
