I'm REALLY trying not to worry about our upcoming FET. But my biggest most terrible fear is that all five of our donated embryos don't survive the thaw. Thinking about that literally takes my breath away.
They were frozen in 2003 and I know freezing techniques have changed since then. They have also been shipped from Virginia to Texas. I seriously keep picturing us driving up to the clinic on Feb 11th and getting "that call" where the RE tells me they all didn't make it. My RE says not to worry. He says it's possible, but unlikely. Still, I can't shake it!
Can someone talk some sense into me? Does anyone else have this fear? Anything that makes you feel better about it?
