I’ve been sitting at this computer all morning trying to figure out what words to use. How to sound optimistic and cheerful, but I keep coming up empty.
I didn’t get horrible news, but I haven’t received really good news either.
One embryo was good enough to send off to get biopsied today for PGS. They are giving the other four another day to grow and hopefully they can be biopsied tomorrow, but the embryologist wasn’t optimistic it would happen. The other four seem to be slow growers who are in no hurry to join the world…..grow embies grow!!
We are still scheduled for our transfer tomorrow if the single embryo comes back within the normal results……the results are rushed as a part of the study we are on. There is still a chance that tomorrow could be the day we have worked so hard for. We won’t know the PGS results until we show up in the morning, so there is a chance it can go either way. It’s so hard to mentally prepare myself for a transfer when there is still a possibility it may not happen.
I find myself torn yet again on how I should be feeling. I am ever so grateful that even one embryo can be biopsied, but I am also feeling so distraught that other four have some more growth to overcome. If I am being honest with you and with myself, then I am truly heartbroken that the numbers have not been in my favor. I was truly hoping that more could be biopsied today so that tomorrow we could have a real chance of doing the transfer. With only one embryo being biopsied the stats of it being normal are not great.
But….here’s to hope!
Thanks for all your support and encouragement.
