Had an appt. with my RE yesterday to go over what happened exactly with this last cycle. I did get PG, but my betas didn't double correctly and it's officially a chemical preg. although I haven't started bleeding yet (should soon).
My RE went over everything from this last cycle and the one that resulted in DD (at a different clinic) and basically the embryologists wrote notes saying that my eggs do not look good. They said they are misshapen, dark, and poor. Trying not to take this personally ;). It's frustrating because all of my labs look really good, my resting count is good, and they get a good number retrieved each time (I stim well), but after the eggs are out they don't look good.
My RE spent a lot of time talking about how crappy my eggs were. But then went on to say, I did have my beautiful DD on the first try, and did have a good, hatching blast this last time. So, yes, he thinks we should try again. We are open to trying again, but are formulating a plan B also.
So my questions are...any thoughts/experience on improving my egg quality? He will start me on DHEA, but otherwise isn't recommending anything else. Also, those of you who have used donors...how did you choose between donor egg and donor embryo? My DH doesn't have any issues, but we are feeling more comfortable with donor embryo as an option. I'd love to hear from you all about your experiences. But maybe I am getting ahead of myself and should just focus on another fresh cycle for now....he didn't indicate any "number" as far as what he thought our chances might be if we try again. What do you ladies think?
Thanks for listening...I'm feeling confused and worried. Before when I thought I was just dealing with tubal factor, I was more confident. Now I just don't know what to think!
