Worst EC I've had πŸ˜ͺ

I went in today for my EC. I had a scan on Monday which showed 7 follicles, another on Wednesday which showed 1 had disappeared, 2 had stopped growing leaving me 4 big ones. We were told the devastating news that they only got 1 this morning.

That news felt like a massive punch in the guts, I'm totally devastated. My husbands sperm wasn't great either, we were planning on having ICSI but they have now said they don't want to risk it, so will try IVF. We will get a call before 12 tomorrow to tell us if our little lone embie has made it.

In all my other goes I've had 5 or 6 eggs so to only get one this time is a big shock. I'm feeling like this is natures way of telling me that I'm at the end of the road with my own eggs. I've been very teary all day as this is such a big thing to get my head round.

I know I shouldn't give up until it's really over but I feel like I'm just going through the motions, with so many failures under my belt before I just can't see a happy ending.

I will wait for our call tomorrow but rather than feeling optimistic I'm dreading it.

It's really been a shitty few months, I hope the future holds some happiness for us.

Big hugs to you all xxx
