A question about embryo donation PG LOSS MENT

Postby MothersLove » Tue Mar 29, 2005 1:54 pm


I hope I do not offend anyone.

I just had a D&C yesterday at 12weeks because our precious baby's heart had stopped. This baby was from donated frozen embryos. I pray nobody here has felt this pain. There is an emptiness that I long to fill.

We have a 22 month old precious son that is the love of our lives. He is via donated frozen embryos as well. Our donors have been a Godsend for us.

We Pray we can try again but do not have any embryos left. Would anyone know of anyone that is considering donating their remaing embryos?

God Bless you and your children-

Dear ML,
So sorry to read your post, you must be traumatised and heartbroken.

I would help you if I could but after my IVF we didn't have any embryos to freeze so I'm sorry I can't help.
Wishing you love and light,

Hi ML,

I'm so sorry for your loss. We didn't have any 'extra' embryo's either, so sorry I can't help you.

I too went through a D&C after I failed to miscarry after losing our baby at 9 weeks. It is devastating I know to feel that your body 'hangs on' to your baby. It was something that I took 7 months at least to recover from. But you know, you will survive, if that's the right word, and you will find a strength from it all, although I'm sure it doesn't feel like it now.

I'm not sure that the emptiness ever goes away - I keep a little of it and think of it as my little light that keeps me going.

I hope you have a little peace soon.
Take care
