SPERM RETRIEVAL TOMORROW ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Well tomorrowโ€™s the day we have been waiting 15 months for! Cannot believe we are this close. Ive been desperate to know if we have any sperm but now we are so close Iโ€™m too scared to find out the answer. Iโ€™ve been quite positive until now and always looked on the 50% there could be sperm side but today Iโ€™m dwelling on the 50% non side. The thought that all we have been through would end with nothing just seems too cruel ๐Ÿ˜” I had my scan this morning and like on the previous two cycles we have just scraped through with 3 follicles (our NHS clinic will only do egg collection if you have 3 follicles over 15mm) we currently have 5 frozen eggs a ๐Ÿคžwe get 3 more on Friday .Needless to say I know our odds arenโ€™t good but Iโ€™m just hoping for our miracle and daring to dream ๐Ÿคž๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒŸ Everyone on here is so strong and supportive and although I donโ€™t comment much I do get so much strength from reading others posts/advice. This forum has made a very lonely dark time seem more bearable so just wanted to say thank you to everyone! We all try so hard and sacrifice so much, I wish that everyone on whatever path they have taken gets their happy ending xxx

Just wanted to wish you luck for today! I was in your position this time last year and it was without doubt the most stressful and emotional day of my life and the wait while he went to theatre was awful.

Hope it goes well and that you get good news xx

Thank you, he has just gone in and Iโ€™m sat here in the car in tears ๐Ÿ˜ญ just looking forward to picking him up later. We donโ€™t get the results until 9am tomorrow so itโ€™s going to be a long day! Xx

Aww itโ€™s just awful, just so upsetting.

I did the same and cried when he went in but then I pulled it together before he got back so he thought I had it all under control.

How annoying that you have to wait until tomorrow, try to stay positive and distract yourself x

Thatโ€™s my plan, get all my tears out now so I can turn up later and look composed instead of the complete mess I feel! Ha x
