Negative Nelly - no hope here

Felling completely and utterly gutted.
None of our embryos made it to blast. All looked great on day three and then arrived for transfer and was taken in to a side room with a box of tissues to be told we only had three Morulas. They popped two in and left one to see how it got on. Needless to say it didn’t make it.

Our sperm was frozen whilst my husband had stage 4 cancer so we know it’s wasn’t great but I think because I hadn’t heard from the clinic on transfer day I just though all was ok.

End of round 1. Nothing to freeze. A pointless two week wait and not much to feel positive about.

Just thought after the year we had with my husbands cancer maybe it was our turn for some luck but nope.

Sorry for being so negative. I’m hoping some of you know and understand exactly where my head is at right now

Oh that is so shitty. Did they say that his sperm tested as poor quality? I think sometimes you can just randomly have a really rubbish round and then next time is just better. How many eggs did they collect and how many fertilised?

thanks you're not out yet.

You don’t know yet that the 2WW is pointless. Many people have got positives from day 3/4 embies. Keep some hope, if you can.

However you’re very justified in feeling thoroughly p!ssed off with life - I’m feeling very much the same after a disaster of an egg collection day.

I read an article about doctors in the US transferring "less than perfect" embryos against standard practice, who took on beautifully and became healthy babies. In fact it was a discovery that threatened the idea of genetic testing as it meant that a lot of the embryos deemed "unfit" to be transferred shouldn't actually be disregarded. I don't know how much research has been done on the subject since, but it sounds to me like there's hope
