    Sorry I havent updated...I am still trying to wrap my head around what happened.


    Monday we arrived for the transfer and found out that 1 of our embies arrested and the other 2 were only 6 cells, they should be around 100. RE said let's see how they look tomorrow...Tuesday came and they they arrested. RE has no idea what happened...we see him thursday. Open to any thoughts, suggestions or ?'s we should ask him. H is going to see a reproductive urologist for further sperm testing. I felt like something was wrong when on 4 made it through the thaw.

    So sorry !!!! I think further semen testing is your best bet especially because the eggs were donor eggs .. How are you feeling btw?

    Hi...
    I feel ok, although this was a real blow. I am hoping there is an "easy" answer to this and we can "fix" it. RE is giving us a free cycle which I guess is good, but I can't imagine having the same thing happen.

    I'm so sorry. I don't have any suggestions about questions to ask, but it sounds like further semen analysis is a good idea at this point. I hope they find an answer and that your next cycle is a success.

    I'm so sorry this happened. I hope the doc is able to give you some answers and you get some answers from DH's SA. I have heard that eggs are very hard to freeze. They are easy to freeze, but they are more unlikely to survive the thaw than embies. So that might be an explanation why only 4 made it through the thaw. I'm glad your RE is giving you a free cycle. That is very generous of him. Please keep us updated after your appt Thursday. You could maybe ask him if this were to happen again if he would transfer what you have on day 3 even though they may look like they are behind.
