Third-Party Reproduction

The report is in...

Of our 8 frozen eggs, all 8 fertilized, but we are only left with 4 embies.  I'm disappointed with the results to be honest.  50% of them pooped out even before the countdown to transfer day began? 

Guess there's nothing to do now but wait to see if I get the call tomorrow for a 3dt...hopefully these remaining 4 will hang in there until day 5.

  • It's hard to lose any, since it always feels like this is a numbers game. We had 13 embies and only 2 were still going at day 5, and those were the two that gave us our girls. I'm sending you lots of positive vibes!

  • Thanks ladies! Looks like we're heading towards a 5dt on Sunday. Hope these 4 keep plugging along. Yes, we are guaranteed at least 2 good ones so that is a bit of a relief.
