Dear Jen

I know you are not posting much and I understand that completely would be the exact same myself.
Just wanted you to know that you are in my thoughts. Hope everything went well with et and that you are resting up now.
Look forward to seeing you in September in the meantime wishing you both all the luck in the world....I am truly keeping my fingers crossed.

Hi Girls

Thanks for the good wishes - unfortunately it's more bad news.

Had a negative result yesterday. After EC and doing the PGD we were only left with 1 normal embie to go back and the poor little mite obviously wasn't strong enough.

To be honest I think it was a bit doomed from EC - we only got 8 eggs compared to 16 last time and then on the way home from ET a stupid OCADO delivery van went into the back of us. We got a real jolt and a bad fright. I reckon the poor little embie was knocked for 6 and didn't stand a chance after that.

Anyway we'll get over this and think about the future when we feel up to it. We've a nice holiday planned to South Carolina to see our friends in August so it's nice to be able to look forward to that.

Hope you're all well and looking forward to catching up in September time.

Lots of love
Jen xx

Ah Jen,
I am really so sorry to hear this news. I was so hoping this was going to be the one. I know there is nothing else I can say really except am thinking of you and know how horrible these days are.
It does n't matter how much we prepare for the worst or how many times it is still bloody hard.
I think it is a great idea to have that holiday and some time away from all the crap that is involved in a cycle.
Hold tight to each other, as I know you do. It is the only thing that has kept me going through my negatives.
I will be thinking of you and am sending you a big hug.
With much love

Jen, I really hope you don't mind my posting but I wanted to say how sorry I was about the result. I can imagine how the van accident would feel like the last straw. I had my 3rd negative last week and so had been following your posts.

The holiday should be lovely. I went to South Carolina about 6 yrs ago, I was newly single and went to Hilton Head Island for tennis school (and never played since). I went in late February but it was already warm and balmy (although stormy too). I'm sure your friends will suggest seeing Savannah which is fabulous. A really lovely town. Enjoy.

Hi Jen,
I am sorry to read your news, it is just all so unfair!!!

Your cycle sounds very similiar to my last, just 1 embryo to put back after PGD. I just think why can they implant when they are not right only to miscarry and one that is right then doesn't implant!

Having a hol to look forwrd to really helped me, so enjoy spending time with your friends and letting your hair down.

Hi Jen

I too am really sorry to hear your news. I had really hoped that some day soon one of us would be posting the first good news of the group. It is so unfair, and it is so difficult. I am thinking of you, and hoping that you and hubs are finding a way through it.

Hope you have a fabulous holiday - it seems to be a bit of a theme for all of us when the going gets tough! But it does help to go away, relax and pretend to live a normal life for a short while!

Hang in there, big hugs
