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
