TTC after 35

Fert Report In

Well, the news frankly was not great and I've spent the last couple of hours in a daze.  Of the 9 retrieved, 8 were mature but only 2 fertilized.  I am in shock and while it's much better than 0, it still hurts.  I know "it only takes one" and I say that all the time, but I'm still devastated and scared because the probabilities are not great and I'm just sooooo tired of this.  I am so so so sad and I am trying too f-ing hard to keep it together.  IF is so unfair. 

I got the report from the nurse so I'm waiting for a call back from my Dr. to discuss and get his perspective.  We are definitely doing a 3 day transfer.

Any positive reinforcement for Grads who had low numbers with success would be incredibly helpful.  And every ounce of prayer and good thoughts you can send my way would be very much appreciated.  It's going to be a pretty sh*tty next couple of weeks :(
