Well, as it turns out, life gave us a ton of lemons today, so line on up for some lemonade! Cash only, please.
Jane's bloodwork today came back negative - so, we aren't pregnant... Though your first thought might be to "break out the frozen embryos", we are sorry to report that there aren't any. Apparently none of them reached the blastula stage necessary for cryopreservation.
So, we're regrouping with Dr. H on Friday, and figuring out where to go from here. Fortunately, we have an AWESOME surrogate! Though equally bummed, she is doing well, and looking forward to the next transfer... Now if we can only find some good eggs!! :(
Yeah, life sucks sometimes, and you get stuck with lemonade (maybe even with lots of seeds) - yuck. I hate lemonade - though it is rather yummy with a splash of Chambord and Vanilla Grey Goose (remember that THAT is the secret to good lemonade when you get those lemons)!!
But don't worry, though there aren't enough words to described just how bummed we are, we haven't given up... We just need to figure out what the next steps are.
Sometimes the most valuable things of all are the ones we can't touch. - *I've been trying to find a way to marry my love of writing, the hectic-ness of working and the challenge of nightly master's classes. Like anything we do ...
