Hi all, hope you're all ok? We got our results back from the chromosome test today and no concerns there. The plan was to have an unmedicated cycle next, extract the egg and see how it fares. I have an operation on my eye end of August and I can't be pregnant for 6-12 weeks after due to the steroids I'll be taking. Last I spoke to our Dr he wasn't worried, said we can have the unmedicated cycle before op and then have a proper cycle after op once he's seen my egg without hormones. This changed today, because there's a chance they'll be able to fertilise the egg and transfer it back I now can't have the unmedicated cycle until after the eye op. They don't think my egg will be up to freezing. So more delays. I've felt like I can't cope a lot recently, can't cope with the delays and waiting. Feel like I want it to be over but can't bear the thought of the end of the journey. I just want to be able to take my brain out of my head and give it a slap, really. I've been feeling better the last few days, more positive. It's just frustrating that nothing you ever expect or plan ever happens. I can't deal with the constant delays. It's also not helping that it's my birthday in two weeks and I'll be 37. So by my 38th birthday I'll either have a baby on the way or I'll know that I'll never have a baby. It's a harsh reality check. Urgh. Why's it all so hard.
