As some of you know, we recently travelled to the US for IVF/PGD with donor eggs. Well, things didn’t go quite as planned, but we did get to transfer, so all we can do now is hope.
We had a few hiccups. The donor (in spite of having a ‘perfect’ cycle last time) did not respond well to the medication. By the time we arrived in the US, she had gone from having 16 eggs to 12. A couple of days later there were only 10. Of these, 8 fertilised. However… 7 of the 8 were abnormal!!!
We just couldn’t believe it. Even our RE was shaking his head. WTF went wrong???
The normal embryo was Grade 3, so not great quality. We transferred last Wednesday. I am not hopeful.
One thing I have learned from this, is that I should trust my own judgement. I wanted to pick a new donor when I heard how low her AFC was, but people kept telling me it was not low, it was fine. Well, it wasn’t. And I’m kicking myself.
