Say what!?

I got a call from my RE this morning to talk about what happened to my cycle. She didn't have much in the way of explanations. She said we just don't know much about ovarian function and egg development. Then she brought up the idea of donor eggs. Yikes! That was not what I was expecting to hear. I got a little emotional. I just didn't think I was at that point yet. I made an appointment to discuss donor eggs with her if the IUI doesn't work out. I also emailed to schedule an appointment with another clinic. I need more opinions. I thought my RE would at least suggest trying the long lupron protocol which didn't work badly for IVF#1. I need to try that again before giving up on my own eggs.

If it does turn out I can't have a biological child, I'm not sure if I would use donor eggs. Even with insurance, there's a significant cost and I can't help but think we'd be better off putting the money toward adoption. I guess the new year will be full of decisions. Unless of course this IUI works. . .ha, ha, ha, ha.

You know what I think. I'm glad you're getting a second opinion!
