    Sorry to hear about the response you received @Caesardust. Hopefully your feeling is incorrect and you get a nice surprise when you poas.

    I agree with tuxcat that someone working in science shouldn't bring God into it. Ask the woman at the agency if there is a chapter in her book about children's terminal cancer wards and why God willed that.
    @tuxcat how exciting for you to be starting your cycle on Tuesday.

    well chances are that it won't be me given I will only be having 1 transferred!

    I'd say a TET might have the best chance

    @Caesardust OMG!! I can't believe a nurse replied with that answer. How completely inappropriate! Man I'd probably be sacked if I said something like that to a patient!!

    Definitely go higher than her hon. And Ask for a written apology.

    Yes it was Jenny from the donor agency. She is the owner of the agency I think. She's not a nurse but someone who brings donors and recipients together for a fee. Her heart is in the right place but when you're staring down the barrel of a very expensive failed cycle I do not care for God.

    Still unacceptable hon... It's a business.. There's no place for personal opinions about God.

    Hi Jenny,

    I hope this finds you well. We will leave Cape Town today with heavy
    hearts.

    I'm not sure if you've been advised by the clinic so I hate to be the
    bearer of bad news but none of the 10 remaining embryos could be frozen.
    The fertility specialist believes there is an issue with the donors eggs
    and I know you mentioned her last donation was unsuccessful also. He
    said if I'm unsuccessful which is highly likely as the embryos were not
    graded the best I should not choose this donor again.

    It has been a very disappointing blow after such a difficult journey to
    get to this point I had very high hopes for donor eggs. I would hate for
    others to experience the same as the decision to move to donor eggs is
    such a last resort for so many and wracked with emotion.

    We are grateful for the opportunity to visit Cape Town it has been a
    beautiful city and a special trip.

    Wishing you the best.

    Her reply to that;

    Thank you for your mail.

    Hopefully you do not need any frozen embryos. I have learnt that this
    process is fraught with uncertainty and we have to just take it step by
    step. I am reading a book that encourages us to understand that God does
    not always show the full path, just the direction and that requires a lot
    of faith and courage.

    I pray for your positive result and send you my very best,

    @Charlie74 I think it may have been the egg donor agency owner who replied about gods will?? If it is, I've expressed my opinion about her on here before. She's the one who I communicated with extensively about my ED cycling for me again and then she went and relisted her without telling me. There's numerous other things I could say about her. One of them being that when I was emailing back and forth with her over Easter about the 18 year old twin EDs, it sure as hell wasn't her I was communicating with but some-one replying via email in her name which is really unethical. It's difficult when she owns/runs the largest ED agency in CT. She is firmly a business woman who reels you in at the start. I hope @Caesardust posts on the SA ED thread so others can benefit from her experience. Sadly Caesardust's ED has been relisted and her next recipient may not ask for her donation history. I just hope with all my heart Caesardust is staring down at two pink lines in the coming days.
    PS: Sorry hun, we were posting at the same time!

    I'm 11dpo but I think I'm going to hold off on poas until tomorrow night after work. I will remain ignorant for one more day so I can get through Father's Day with my family and dp's family.

    Heart in the right place my *rse. She's a shrewd business woman. She knows exactly how to work a potential recipient. She's also doing a great job of trying to weasel out of offering you another ED without her fee. Super fingers crossed you don't need one of course. If you haven't already done so I'd copy that email and responce to your CT FS. Did your CT FS say you had a low chance of success with your B2ABs? I hope not hun.
    BTW, I'm definately not pressuring you to POAS. I was just trying to keep track of where you're at.
    Her response makes me want to use lots of these .
