We received our PGD results back and added another chromosomally normal embryo to our tiny stock in the freezer. When my doctor called with the results, I broke down into happy tears at my office. While many people would think 2 embryos equals a poor showing, my husband and I are overwhelmed and amazed to just have 2. It really is relative.
The better of the 2, a hatching 6BA embryo was chromosomally abnormal. If we had not done genetic testing, we would have transferred that 6BA hatching embryo. Thank god we did PGD.
Yesterday, I looked around and realized that 90% of the woman I began this journey with are either pregnant, about to deliver or have newborn babies. And I’m the pathetic one who is excited about having 2 embryos frozen. It is a very lonely and painful headspace to be in.
I will be cycling again in June. Same protocol. Same bat channel. But first we are going to spend 7 days putting around the British Virgin Islands. A well earned break before the madness begins again.
