Really? When Does the Bad News Stop?

A quick update while I gather my thoughts and figure out how to go into my next meeting at work without bawling my eyes out.

My RE called to give me the update from Dotty's 1st monitoring appointment this morning and when SHE calls, as opposed to the nurse, that's not good.

Dotty's ovaries aren't responding to the meds...

FUCK.

We're going to give her three more days on the meds to see if her ovaries decide to wake up, but we may be faced with scrapping her and starting over with a new donor.

I'm  so so so so so sick of bad news.

I am so very sorry. You kind of want to believe that with DE things get easier, it is so scary to think that may not be really true. Hoping for good news one way of the other. Holding your hand across the miles....

Gurlee said...

Oh god no. Wtf? Try to breathe. Time will tell, perhaps they will wake up. Sending you loads of strength and love.

What meds/dosage is she on? Do they tell you that? Mine took about 5 days to wake up! I'm surprised this is happening though with a donor. So sorry honey. Will keep my fingers crossed for you and Doty. Sending love!

KC said...

Have they upped her dosage? How long has she been stimming?
I had the same experience with my donor(sister). She was a super slow stimmer but she made up for it in the long run.
My fingers are crossed and I pray that you don't have to start the process again.

I'm so sorry to hear this news, and fingers crossed that those ovaries snap to attention.

Marissa said...

Don't those ovaries know they're YOUNG?!?!?!

UGH, I am so sorry for you, really hoping things turn around. :(

Baby Hopes said...

UGH! I'm so, so sorry... SO FRUSTRATING! :(

Baby Steps said...

You are kidding me!!! I am so, so sorry!! This is absolutely ridiculous!!!! This blows and I wish and hope that those darn young ovaries kick it into gear!

Crap.... not what I wanted to read!

Sarah said...

I am saying a prayer for you and Dotty!!!

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear about Dotty. That really, really sucks.

I'll be sending you good thoughts, prayers and every other positive thing I can for the next few days!

Hang in there.

ADH said...

Ughh. I am so so sorry to hear this. I am going to hold out hope for you that things turn around in the next 3 days.

Heather said...

Just what you don't need! However, could it just be too early? She just started stims on Friday, right? My clinic (SIRM) doesn't even start monitoring until day 6. When I asked about this my RE explained that it took that long to see changed sometimes and that often patients got discouraged when they didn't see progress early on. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed that things will look good in a few days.

Damita said...

So sorry :(

April said...

I'm so sorry. I hope that the next 3 days will yield better results for Dotty.

Seriously, God, SERIOUSLY?! Enough already. I am so freaking sorry. I guess the thing to remember with this stuff is that things can look dismal, but still work out....some people take a while to respond to meds, even the fertile ones.

lostintranslation said...

oh no! not what you need right now! I hope the little extra time will do the trick. Hang in there.

bean dreams said...

So sorry! Hopefully, it is just a little early. I recently had a cycle where my ovaries definitely responded later (and then over-responded like crazy! Hoping you get a good call within the next three days! Thinking of you!

endoandbeyond said...

UGH!!! That sucks. I hope you get some GREAT news very soon.

Mommy ToBe (I hope) said...

Oh no. I'm so sorry. I'm hoping that you get positive news soon and that Dotty's ovaries start to respond.

Gigi said...

I'm so very sorry for all you & Tidy have had to struggle with, & now this too. I am hoping that it's just early & in a few days there's a much, much better response.
