Black and White < 2

Well, we did not wake up to the pretty coloured email of congratulations.  We received the black and white version that was full of support and condolences for getting a negative.  :(
Sadly, this is the nature of IVF, it either works or it doesn't.  We know we had great chances with our surrogates and Dr Shivani, but this time it just did not work.  We thank the whole team at SCI for their efforts and giving us another shot to try an expand our family.  Just after the email I received a call from Dr Shivani to talk about it, and she was quite disappointed for us that not even one embryo stuck.  It is always great to talk with Dr Shivani and kinda spit ball ideas.  For now, this chapter is closed.
