Fertilization Report Back- :( — The Bump
Secondary IF

Fertilization Report Back- :(

So, of the 8 they got, only 2 were mature. Those were ICSI'd and are officially fertilized.  Two more eggs were deemed mature today so they were ICSI'd.  They will call tomorrow to let me know if those two fertilized.  Just super disappointed because I thought I would have a lot more to work with.  

She said that going in I had one follie that was 27 so it was for sure time to trigger.  And based on my labs I for sure didn't ovulate.  She said *if* I have to do another cycle they would start me out on higher doses of meds and trigger with HCG instead of Lupron.  But that she would expect me to have a similar amount of eggs each time.  

 I've said from the beginning that I don't want twins, but now that I'm down to only 2 possible embryos, I just want to be pregnant..one or two.  Whatever.  I just don't want to go through this again.  And I know they only freeze really really quality embryos.  So I just want them both put in.

Re: Fertilization Report Back- :(

  • Oh honey, I am sorry.  I hope the 2 for today jump back into the game!  I am worried the same is going to happen to me since I had a 27 today and the rest were all 21-14.  This whole process is so confusing.  I know it has been said before but it is true.  All we need is one.  Can we make that our theme song?

  • My second IVF I think we also had this problem with follicles being out of sync.  Too many small as compared to the mature follies.  That's why my estrogen was high compared with the eggs we ended up with (expected about twice as many).  

    Just did a natural cycle with monitoring and turns out my normal follicle size is about 26!  So triggering to early may have been an issue for me in the past..
