Triploidy. Basically, the baby had 3 sets of chromosomes (69 instead of 46), most likely from letting two sperm instead of the one. I sort of imagine my old dithery egg getting confused, and forgetting she'd already let one in...
As sad as this could be, it is also actully a relief. My worst fear is that we would have miscarried a genetically normal child. That would have meant that something was up with my uterus, or blood or something, and that would mean DE would be a more perilous endeavor.
Dr Calm recommends moving on to Donor Eggs, and that is likely where we are headed. Although Dr Google says that Triploidy is not dependant on a mothers age (one of the few), given that we don't know what felled Sparky (likely the translocation, but that is just our 'choice' to believe that in the absence of data), and that I didn't get pregnant with the Donor Sperm in the last IVF, that it's time to cut our losses and jump on the DE train.
Husband and I haven't had any time to talk this over, but I'm assuming that after my cycle in February, we'll be in Lupron land.
I am remarkably relieved. I was also worried that they wouldn't be able to culture the fetus, that's what happened with Sparky, and to not know twice would be awful.
So come on period! Let's have one of those nice short cycles you are famous for and get this show on the road.
