Sorry I havent been around for a while, but I thougth I'd fill you in.
As you may know, me and DH decided to do ICSI with his sperm. I overstimulted, and my embies were frozen. Out of our embies, only 1 made the thaw well, and it was only half decent. It was a 6 cell, with minor fragmentation, and our chances with just 1 embie were pretty low.
Anyway, I was pretty sure it hadnt worked, until Tuesday. I started getting all the symptoms I got when preg with Charlie last year, and was so sure I was pregnant - I would have bet any money.
My beta was due tomorrow. I just went to the bathroom (13dpt) and there is red blood. I am sure its AF flying in, and to say we are devestated is an understatement.
We have now been trying 5 years, and I don't ever see a time when I am holding our baby.
DH and I have had a cry, but we cannot afford another go at ICSI. I feel if it were a fresh cycle, ie, not frozen, we might have a chance. But, it will take us another year to save up, and I know you can all appreciate how long a year is when your arms are so empty. I don't want to make our wait 6 years.
DH always said he wouldnever do DI again, but he has just said he wants to do DIUI at the clinic (before we used a known donor) as we can afford that right away, instead of having to wait so long.
I will ring the clinic tomorrow and make an appointment to discuss this with our nurse, but I wanted to update you all, and also to send major hugs to snowboardmom - I can't believe that more than a year after our losses, we are still both so sad

Also, its a year tomorrow since I m/c charlie, so this is made all the more bittersweet.
I am so sad, angry and bitter.
Hoping everyone is ok,
Marie xx
