We will still go for a follow up with the doc to see what he says and there is hope but I think it's an egg quality issue (I have low AMH for my age) we do not wish to use donor sperm or eggs or adopt it is just not for us.
I just feel so exhausted with this whole process and it has consumed my life for the past three years, I have done everything possible from Accupunture to naturopathy herbs and multiple supplements to changing my diet losing weight and getting fit but I cannot put my life on hold for one more second for something that probably won't ever come true. Yes there is a chance but there is a chance of winning lotto too and I'm a realist.
I know some reading this (my mother feels the same way) that if we want it bad enough we won't stop but at what cost? My sanity, my marriage, my career? That may sound selfish but take a second to think about what would be left without all f that and still no baby? It is all those things ATM keeping me going.
sorry for the long me rant post xoxo

And so the rollercoaster ride continues... Doc just called to say the retested embryo is normal!!!!

Nattie, I can feel your anguish through the computer! And I admire you for knowing how to say 'enough'. I totally understand the toll it puts on every aspect of your life, and I think you are amazing that you can maintain perspective in the middle of such a horrible time. I am holding onto hope for your one emby tho. When is it being transferred?
30-05-2013 13:12 #64
Oh wow Nattie! That's great news. Will you be transferring?
30-05-2013 13:16 #65
We will be transferring next cycle. Just need to wait for AF to come and then back onto the hormones just a low dose though.
It's just so hard, I'm trying to be positive again but also protect myself from another fall.
thanks so much for your support ladies

Just popping in to say hi. I go back to work tomoz so I won't be able to keep up with the chat but will check in from time to time.
How is everyone on this cold and dreary day!?
I went back to the doc yesterday as I have been having the most terrible cramps and aches on the right hand side of my abdomen. Turns out my right ovary is full of fluid and blood and is 8cm! Once again doc not overly concerned just said keep up fluids and rest and if the pain hurts real bad go to the ER. He said it should go down soon but its 8DPO and not getting any better.
As usual I looked online and keep seeing that this is pretty bad as the fluid can leak into my body!!
Its my second time having OHSS and docs/nurses discounting it.
Has anyone else experienced this before?

Good luck Nattie - no I've never experienced ohss (never enough eggs!!!) hope your symptoms ease up and if not seek the help you need!!! Xo
