@casey301 5 out of 13 seems pretty decent to me. Is 13 the total number of mature eggs, or how many were fertilized? If it's how many total were mature, then 5 sounds pretty good actually. If she's a proven donor and has good egg quality, I'm hoping you'll have 2 or 3 that will be normal. As for my personal IVF experience, my first cycle had 4 blasts from 8 mature eggs (out of those, I only ended up with one baby, but I got my daughter with our first transfer) and this IVF cycle, I ended up with 3 blasts out of 14 mature eggs (only 9 fertilized were fertilized). Things rarely go as expected with IVF so it's best just to try to shut off all the "what ifs" in your head and just take it one step at a time.
@casey301 I really wish there was some guarantee with all of this. It's crazy to think that even the best odds are still a pretty significant gamble. It's the equivalent of buying a brand new car in cash and only having a 50/50 shot of actually driving it home. Praying that everything works out with your donor and it'll be the best $40k anyone has ever spent.
@PoeMasque I told my husband the same thing........I can't wait for the ultrasound Thursday but I can. For now we are pregnant and I just want to enjoy that! Thank you ladies for the support. I appreciate it! Good luck to everyone!@casey301 I would agree with others I'm not sure what is "normal" I think everyone is different but my last few days of stims I was going in at least every other day. It helped my RE decide when to use the trigger.
@PoeMasque @prepfamily congrats!! I heard back on my PGS results early - 2 of the 3 are good to go (5AA & 6BB)! One boy and one girl. I am so happy right now I can’t even describe it. Hoping I can be in the same pregnant as some of you all soon!!!
