Maybe someone can help me. My signature below shows all we have been through on this long journey. We transferred in August with our first Donor Embryo from our clinic. I got pregnant, with what looked like more than 1. As my u/s progressed, by week 6 we saw one sac for sure and a bleed. I was bleeding off and on and was put on bedrest. I was doing well, feeling more pregnant than ever before, and by week 7 I felt like the baby was a few days behind. My RE’s u/s machine is older and not as clear so I was hoping that was the issue. By week 8, I was still measuring a few days behind and we couldn’t find the heartbeat. We went to a fetal diagnostic center and there wasn’t a heartbeat, but a clear picture of the baby. We decided to do a D&C to end this quickly and have testing done. I have felt weak and broken and hopeless. We got the results back yesterday and found out it was a female with Trisomy 7. I know now my body didn’t let me down but did what it was supposed to, thankfully. I have feelings of hope again and think we will try again after a break. My question is, has anyone used donor embryos from their clinic and done PGD testing on them? My RE was a frontrunner in doing this research so I know they do it all the time. I just don’t know if when taking the best matches the clinic has to offer, does it make sense to use the PGD testing? I haven’t met with him as I am waiting for my HCG to come down before we meet. I just don’t know much about it but after this experience, is it worth it? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. I just can’t find much on the internet about PGD testing on donor embryos. My clinic has all of the information on where they came from since they were patients with them, but I know there are risks with accepting them.
Thanks so much!
