Really hard day/cycle- Hope it's okay if I join...(sadness and DE mentioned)October 12 2011 at 1:14 PM

Sara Q recommended I look here, so I've been lurking during the past week. I'm 33 with serious DOR (undetectable AMH, highest FSH=18) and blocked tubes and today I underwent ER for my 2nd IVF cycle and found out I'd ovulated through my cetrotide and only one egg was retrieved. This cycle was at CCRM (1st was in MA at Brigham and Women's) and it was extremely stressful- I stimmed for 18 days, had to pay for rental car and hotel for 15 days, had 3 LH surges and was told I might be cancelled the next day nearly daily for 2 weeks. Through all this my 6 follies (3-4 that looked viable) kept growing, so they figure I hadn't ovulated. They were wrong. And to top it all off, today is my 33rd birthday. Not so much a celebration. I don't know what to do next. I get that DE is by far my best chance at having children (as every RE I've seen has reminded me...) but I don't feel ready, and thinking about it makes me feel really sad. I am considering going to Dr. Owen Davis at Cornell for another cycle, but I don't know if it's best to go back to the same RE so they can (hopefully) learn from their mistakes? So confused... Sorry for starting off on this board with a mini-rant. Thanks for listening. Any advice/thoughts are appreciated...
