Yep this was my 2nd IVF cycle and it has not been a good one from the start.

I went in today to have an u/s on my belly. The 1st thing he said is "Well your right ovary popped out of your pelvis.........(moves the thing).........and so did your left ovary. That would explain all the pain. I can barely walk, it hurts to cough, sneeze and hiccup. He said just relax and take it easy....nothing strenuous.

Then I get hit with the worst news possible. He said he is very concerned that all 10 embryos are not going to make it to blast and that there is a lot of fragmentation.
First of all when I talked to him Saturday he said freeze on Monday. Not really sure why that changed. I'm so devastated. WTH? Just when I thought we had a tiny bit of hope I get this.

It's so unfair. WHY?????
Why is it okay for the 17 year old girl to get pregnant and put her baby in a dumpster and I can't get pregnant FOR 5 YEARS.

Then to hit me again with bad news he said we won't be doing the LAP in April because of my ovaries. We now have to wait until May. 2 months is 2 months and it's 2 months longer into our 5 years of TTC. So if none of the embryos make it we probably wont be able to do IVF again until July.

This is so stressful. No where in this cycle or my last IVF did we ever get good news.

Oh Brynn ... {{HUGS}}

I know the feeling of frustration with the 17 year olds etc ...
We had a mother of an 8 year old special needs daughter that killed her daughter this week. My husband was the first officer on scene ... it was devistating for our department. I want another child ... and this NUT CASE couldn't handle the blessing she had been given. I was just happy that they didn't bring her into me while I was working in the jail ... don't think I could have been too nice.

Hang in there ... {{HUGS}}

Oh HUN!! im soo terribly sorry! you know there was someone on here...not sure if she is still on the board (kimberly) who was told she had fragmented embryos..and she now has a healthy little boy! I was in your shoes once..it really is tough...we couldnt do another cycle until 2 years later when we had this ivf paid off..we were at a loss and didnt know what to do..so we just researched on the internet and kept trying everything we could while we waited..it was soo tough..but IVF was soo emotionally and physically let alone financially tough..we didnt even know if we wanted to do it again! I know its tough sweetie..i really do.. And i know there is nothing i can say to make you feel better! Just hang in there hun..you just never know what is going to happen! BIG HUGS!

Oh, Brynn...I'm so sorry you were bombarded with crappy news today. I will keep those embies in my prayers and hope that there are a few strong ones that will be able to give you that BFP.

I know your heart will hurt for a while, but I hope that you are physically feeling better soon and that your ovaries shrink back down so you can be a little more comfortable.

I am so incredibly sorry for all the bad news!! I am praying for your embies, and hope your pain goes away soon. Sorry they are making you wait on your lap.

After years of trying, 2 years of fertility meds, multiple surgeries, blood draws and needle sticks, some awful pre-IVF complications, and endometriosis and PCOS,
We are done TTC. Praying for peace as we accept this...
Hoping for some comfort after our most recent (and 3rd) surgery and starting Lupron!
