Fertilization Report

The nurse just called with the fertilization report. Of my 8 eggs, 6 were mature and all 6 fertilized!

I am so relieved that we don’t have a shit load of embryos this time. For one reason, I don’t feel like I might die today. And I didn’t want a repeat of IVF #1 with a bunch of embies and no results.

Now we just wait. On Monday the nurse will call me again to let me know how many were able to be biopsied on day 3. Then we wait some more. The ET will be Wednesday. We won’t find out the results of the PGS/CGH testing until we arrive on Wednesday.

I’m feeling quite zen about all of this. I have done everything I possibly could to give this cycle the best chance. My eggs are now embryos and there’s nothing more I can do except continue to stay calm. This is either going to work, or it won’t. I can’t change the outcome at this point. But I’m sticking with the idea that is going to work. 🙂

Any and all positive vibes, thoughts and/or prayers you can continue to send our way is greatly appreciated. Please let this work. Please let there be at least one (is it too greedy to ask for 2?) normal embryo. Thiswillwork! My healthy embryos will be normal and will be nestled into my womb in a few long days. Thiswillwork!

P.S. My husband had to produce his sample in a room dubbed “The Oval Office” yesterday. Haha. So official! Sooz, I thought you would appreciate knowing that!
