    Oh @Tahli, you must be gutted hugs x
    I guess all you can do now is hope that it was the SD who was the problem (and going by your donors history I would say so!) and that SD2 is super-sperm-donor. How long till you find out?

    Gutted is an understatement. To add insult to injury I was at the front desk going over my invoice, gasping at paying $2k extra for SD1s sperm (instead of the normal $125 for ICSI sperm) when Dr W dropped the bombshell. If I have nothing to freeze I will have spent $15k on one blast. SD1 has helped to create 2 pregnancies so his sperm has been good in the past.

    @Tahli sorry to hear this, but personally I was hoping for a slow & steady one as I keep reading about women having them and going on to have a take home baby.
    (mine are usually ahead at the start but drop off after day5). I think it's still a very good chance for you. fingers crossed for some frosties with SD2 too.
    one is all you need.

    I'd be gutted too, Tahli.

    But on the other hand, if that single blast works and you're holding a baby in your arms at the end of 9 months, $15K would be just fine by me.

    I have everything crossed for you honey SD2 might well surprise you. Sometimes dollar store stuff is just as good (and if not better!) than the expensive crap!

    Lots of hugs for you

    Seriously WTF ?!?!?! Why was it $2k extra ?
    Good point @winsor made actually, my first two from my donor were super duper fast embies, and looked perfect, and see how that turned out. These two onboard now were the slower ones...

    And to extra extra top it off the lab was so busy I didn't end up with the embryoscope footage, embryo grading on the one that was transferred or even the number of embryos still going from SD2. I sat and waited for an hour after transfer for an embryologist to come out and speak to me but no luck.

    @Tahli oh no, what a shock for you! Let us know how SD2 goes. I hope you get some frosties for your peace of mind.

    10 straws at $200 each brings SD1 sperm to a cost of $2k.

    I don't suppose you can email them or have them email it afterwards? (or did they not save the files at the time?)
