excitement and then....disappointment

had my dr. appt. today to find out what kind of "treatments" we could do to help assist in our baby making. my dr. suggested some things that my past drs. had never done, so i was pretty excited at the possibilities. she sent in the prescription and everything. i was feeling pretty positive about the whole thing.

then....we talked some more. i started telling her more details of our ivf session that she didn't know. like the fact that we had 22 eggs retrieved and even after an expensive ICSI treatment, only 3 of them ended up fertilizing. not great results....at all. after hearing that, her whole demeanor changed. suddenly she wasn't so sure we should "waste" our time trying the meds she had suggested earlier. i was beyond disappointed. she said she would make a phone call to a colleague of hers to ask her opinion on the situation and then get back to me by the end of the week. i'm not very optimistic.

we really need a miracle right now....we just can't afford another round of ivf....unless, of course, we win the lottery! anyone have a winning ticket they want to get rid of?
