We just left our WTF meeting with our old RE. I wasn’t expecting much but it’s now safe to say that he completely under delivered on our already low expectations. Kinda hard to do, if you ask me!
He had absolutely nothing to offer. He told the story again about a woman who had 6 failed fresh IVF cycles and one FET before she came to him and he saved the day by putting in 6 embryos. (Not convincing at all.) You can probably already tell where this is going (Sienna is probably seething at this point). Yep, we just need to be more aggressive with the number of embryos we put back. He did say that perhaps even though we make lots of perfect embryos, we may have many abnormal embryos and he walked us through PGD and I kinda got excited for a minute that he might have an idea that makes sense as it relates to actually getting us pregnant. But nooooo. He said he doesn’t recommend PGD because it “causes a 50% decrease in pregnancy rates” but if we’re interested, he can refer us to a different clinic.
Flabbergasted. No recommendations at all except more embryos.
Then he suggested we take a break (ah, you’re a little late smartypants) and he went so far as to suggest we take a vacation and “you might even get pregnant.”
He wrapped things up by saying that when we’re ready he’ll give us free stims. We did not tell him we have a new plan with a new doctor.
We practically ran out of there! Ahhhh, Calgon take me away!
