Oh, FUCK! I hate this.

A dear friend is probably about to miscarry. We met at the clinic over blood draws. She's also single, so we bonded over that. She spent her savings on this donor egg cycle. Her 22 yo donor did not do as well as hoped. 10 eggs, 6 fertilized, 2 were transferred on day 3, but there was nothing to freeze on day 5. But we were thrilled when her betas were sky high. Then 2 weeks ago she saw a heartbeat. She was barfing her guts up. At her ultrasound today she was told that the embryo was not growing as it should and that she would miscarry soon. She's insisting on another u/s next week. Please keep her in your thoughts.

DAMN! That sucks. FWIW, Simone was ALWAYS small for dates-- still is, and she's 1 year old, still here, and healthy.
