Don't Count Your Eggs

Hi Lisa. My AMH is zero. It was 0.31 when I was 32, over two years ago. I was retested at 33 and the number was undetectable. I still don't fully believe that means all my eggs are done, you never know, but I do know that after years of trying something was definitely off with my huevos.

I know you don't want to dwell...but Maya, what was your AMH?

oh Cheryl - your blog is so helpful. I'm not sure I can go on and I wish I had your strength.

Don't Count Your Eggs

Thanks for sharing Cheryl. This process is so...exhausting, I get how people can decide to live child free. Noah and I have talked about it also, the possibility, and he just said he thinks we will regret the decision in ten years. I think he's right, so we'll keep on. Thanks for the suggestion about eggs. It's always helpful to know options so never hesitate to give your ideas:) I'm sure there are ways to get cheaper eggs, but just the thought of trying to figure that out seems...daunting. But people are able to navigate that so it is a good idea.

It is a true test of a marriage to get on the same page about such life altering decisions. For the past 3 years I have undergone everything in the infertility treatment book. Somewhere along this time, I came to the realization that I was really okay with living child free. However, my husband longs for children. We support eachother without question and have been negotiating alternative family building plans. But I often wonder if our decisions now will lead to underlying resentments and a lifetime of what ifs ... It's such a tough road! It'm so glad that you guys have been able to navigate it hand in hand. On another note, I know that you are primed & ready for your embryo donation (yay !) but if you have any reservations about losing out on Noah's DNA- have you checked out clinics in Czech Rep. for donor eggs? It is FAR less expensive- I think around $4,000 (meds included). Please don't take this as discouragement against the donor embryos- Just giving info. I'm rooting for you both!!!
