    Hi everyone, thanks so much for your well wishes.

    So, first of all, before anyone says it: I know it only takes one...... but my partner and I are still devastated.

    We got 5 eggs, 4 mature. I was in the operating theatre with my donor and saw them collect the eggs so I told her when she came around. She was crying and I was trying to be positive about it for her sake but yeah, it was a bit of a shock. Apparently her E2 levels were 4 to 5k so even though she had 40 follicles obviously there just weren't many eggs in there. Other than feeling like she'd let us down she said she was feeling pretty good physically.

    To go from such high expectations (she got 17 eggs for her last recipients) to realise this may be the end of the road for us is pretty harsh.

    I just want to fast forward to tuesday instead of getting those f*cking awful phone calls withering our hopes one by one.

    Yep, I know we still might make it and I know others have done it with less but right now our hopes are pretty low

    @Bongley I am not going to shower you with platitudes and sayings, I totally feel your pain and devastation.

    When you are the recipient of donor eggs you have such high expectations of what that you might get from younger body/eggs that we can't provide - after all that is why we are using a donor. So it is devastating to receive so few.

    I feel for your donor as well, she sounds lovely and for her to be upset for you too.

    Did the clinic not discuss her e2 levels before pick up? Although I have to admit I didn't ask and was just told possible follicle/eggs.

    Are you going to do a fresh transfer? If so you really do need to try and stay calm, as hard as that will be over the next few days.

    Why is the universe so frucking cruel😫

    Thanks gals. No fresh transfer here. Lets hope one can make it to be frozen.

    I discussed the E2 levels with my doc today, I didn't think to ask beforehand as her follicles were looking so great. He said sometimes, especially with younger donors, the egg haul matches the follicles and sometimes the E2 numbers so I guess we lucked out with this one.

    @Bongley Oh no Luv!!! What a terrible frucking blow!!!😦 I'm so sorry...what a terrible shock for you😦

    Yep...those E2 levels sound right for the amount of eggs...were you aware of the levels prior??

    Look Luv..all we can do is hope @ pray they all fertilise @ make it to testing/freezing/transferring. There's every chance they will but I get why you're devo @ not feeling overly confident right now.

    I'm going to do some serious praying to the Universe for you Luv as well as the usual crossing of everything @ channelling of Babydust. Sending much love @ hugs your wayxoxo

    P.S....Virtual hugs for the donor too. Can imagine she feels like shiz..I know I would too but it's not her fault or anyone elses.

    Just another of the cruel twists and turns that can come out of left field at any time on this (insert "c" word here...the occassion calls for it IMO) of a ride they call IVF!!!!😦

    ETA- Saw your update about E2 levels..

    @Bongley, did you ever discuss the possibility of a second EPU with her if the first wasn't a success ?

    No, I don't think we can afford one. After 9 EPUs I think we've had enough. Plus it's one thing dragging your own butt through this emotional and physical grinder it's quite another getting someone else to do it.

    Oh @Bongley Im really sorry to hear this. Its a blow when you were expecting so many, this is the unpredictable thing about all this sh!t and it really frucks you off I know! Im crossing everything that you get a decent number of embies out of it all and those embies translate into your bub. You've still got a great chance it will give you a BFP but I know its disappointing when everything seemed to be looking so great. Blonde has summed it up in that last sentence!!!!

    Sending you a massive hug and don't give up hope xx

    @Charlie74 I understand that feeling and its horrible having to pretend nothing is wrong at work. Thinking of you. When do you find out the result?
