It's all over for this go :(

I'm sorry to report that I got my period this morning and also the test we did was negative (we have done a couple of sneaky ones this week which were all negative so we knew it was coming).

I'm disappointed as we had such good embryos, but we also know from experience that the quality of the embryos has NO bearing on whether they will implant, as I know ladies who have gotten pregnant from poor quality ones and I've also known other ladies who like me haven't gotten pregnant from excellent quality ones.

There isn't really an explanation for this - they simply didn't stick (implant). I don't think there is anything that anyone can do to make this part happen - it's down to mother nature to do her thing, and this time she let me down.

We are now planning to go back to America for round #2 around the end of July and into August, again with much to arrange like the cats and the flights and the dates! we don't know exactly when yet - but it will happen!

I remind myself of this today:

I've been following your journey (in every sense of the word) and was so hoping that all your travels and efforts and optimism would pay off. I'm so sorry to read this post this morning.

But, you know, you can't lose your optimism - it won't go away and I applaud your determination and tenacity. Be good to yourself, thinking of you,
