Hi Ladies,

Well we are sorry to say it was a BFN for us...............

We are very upset this time, we really were hoping this would be our time.

Dr says there is no reason he can tell us why it didn't work. It could be genetics with the embryos.

We have one chance left as we are running out of embryos. We are going to take a couple of months break and hopefully do a FET in November.

Thank you all for your best wishes, you are an amazing bunch of people, you have helped me no end to get through all this, and i know you will be here to suport me in the future.

Good luck to you all, with testing, transfers, retrivals and anything else you are going through at the moment.

Hugs Rachel OXO

You Guys are amazing!!!!

Thank you so much for all your support and kind words.

We are starting to feel a bit better, to be honest we are getting use to the bad news and beginning to think it's not mean't to be.
We have 4 frosties left so we are going to use them and then most likely say enough is enough...... There is only so much heartache we can take!!!!!

We have already decided we are going to adopt whichever way it turns out, but we have to wait till we get back to England to do that, as we don't have enough time left living over here to do all the proceedings.
We also intend on fostering.

We have got 1 year left over here after we have done our last FET, so we are going to enjoy it and travel when we want, and do whatever we want when we want to without IVF dictating when we can do things. We have been in IVF world since we got here, so we need some fun!!!!!

Thank you all again for your words of encouragement, it has mean't so much to us both.

Good luck to you all
