Our clinic fertilized all of our eggs instead of the 8 we consented to
Due to religious reasons we only wanted 8 of our mature eggs fertilized because we do not believe in destroying them and cant afford to pay for repeated transfers and a huge family. Our clinic mistakenly fertilized all 16 mature eggs and we now have 10 good quality blastocysts.
I am absolutely devastated with this outcome. I can’t eat or sleep or work. I don’t know how we will be able to afford this many kids. (I realize all of them will not be kids but it’s most likely well over two we planned to have and have a big enough house for). I can’t imagine donating my our biological child. I don’t know what to do. What should I do next? I want to move my embryos and have them transferred at another clinic but we’ve already paid for a year of storage and 1 transfer at this clinic. I wanted to decide what size family I have. Not have a lab decide for me. I’m already 32.5 so I’m going to have to transfer them 2 at a time to be sure I have time to transfer them all. That puts me and our future children at risk. I don’t know what to do.
