Nothing fertility related EVER goes according to plan. At least not for me. I should know this by now. I really should.
Egg retrieval went well. We have 16 eggs. We’ll find out the status of maturity & fertilization tomorrow.
The unexpected curveball is that my “absolutely perfect” lining has developed a polyp. It’s a small one, but it’s in the exact spot where the RE wants to place our embryos.
It is most likely at this point that a fresh transfer is out for us. We’ll find out Friday for sure. Some of the decision will be based on the performance and ultimate quantity of the embryos.
I feel pretty devastated right now. Maybe I shouldn’t. Maybe I’m being a drama queen. I’m just sitting here sore from the procedure, a bit foggy from the anesthesia, and all I want to do is cry. There were so, so many what ifs going into today, but this particular scenario never once crossed my mind.
Lesson learned. Again.
