Embryo storage is an all too common issue that many families are having to deal with. In Australia alone, there is an estimated 100,000 embryos in storage. This is nothing to scoff at as families across the country battle with the same decision as myself.
I roll over to desperately turn off my blaring morning alarm. Only then do I realise the searing pain across my lower abdomen. As I’m curled in a ball I start to panic as it hits me that Emmanuele is still at work and there is no way I can move. I try to get out of bed and fall to the floor in a heap. As I’m curled up in a ball, I call Emmanuele and try to tell him what’s going on. How could I explain what was going on when I didn’t know myself?
