Day one fert report

edited December 2013 in Trouble TTC
Hello Gorgeous 3T Ladies :) I know I've been quiet around here lately. Ever since making the switch to IVF, I've been more active on the IF board. But I've been lurking in regularly. 3T has always been my 'home board!'

We just had our egg retrieval from IVF#2 yesterday. Here's the short version of the report: 14 retrieved, 9 mature, 5 fertilized. I'm calling the lab on Monday morning to find out if we will do a 3- or 5-day transfer. Feel free to check out my blog if you're interested in more of the details (link in my siggy, or click here if you are mobile).

I am terrified right now. For IVF#1, we had 6 fertilized eggs, and by day 3 we transferred two embryos (low quality, but the best we had, resulting in a BFN), and the remaining stopped growing before day 5. This round, we added some new things to the protocol (increased doses of Follistim & Menopur, estrogen priming, and human growth hormone). I am praying that even though we have fewer embryos than IVF#1, that these embryos are stronger. I wish I could just fast forward through the next two days... it's hard to keep my mind from going to the worst case scenario. I'm afraid we will get the same outcome as the last time. But for now, I'm going to distract myself as much as possible and pray that my five little ninjas are kicking ass in their petri dishes!!!
