Just one person's tale to tell....

I am a 35-year-old journalist who has decided there is no better way to overcome difficult times than to write--feel free to post, comment or just read along. This is my blog about the struggles I endured of trying to conceive. For all those out there who are experiencing the same difficulties--sometimes it is nice to hear that you are not alone.

and then there were nine!

So we just got word from our clinic that out of our 14 remaining embryos, nine of them were viable for freezing. My DH was pretty happy with this number (as he should be because some couples don't get any) but I couldn't help but feel a little sad for the five that didn't make it. I mean there is a reason embryos aren't viable for freezing and most of the time it has to do with development or abnormal cells so transferring them may not be an option to begin with--in the end I have to look at it that I still have nine more chances of being a mom with this cycle!

  1. You don't need nine more chances to be a mom because you already are one - you just don't know it yet :) Two more sleeps....xoxoxoxoxoxoxo
