Five of my six embies were able to be biopsied. The sixth one was only 3 cells today so they don’t have much hope for it but they plan to watch it to see if it will grow to blast by Wednesday or not. Two of the five were 7 cells and three were 8 cells.
I can’t lie. I’m a little bummed we only have 5 (okay, 6) that made it to today. I was hoping for more. My husband feels that we’ll have a higher percentage of normal embies because I wasn’t stimmed so hard this time. He thinks if I would have stimmed at a higher dosage, my body would be pushed to the limits, thereby creating even more abnormal embryos. Maybe that was our issue for IVF #1. We made 14 embryos but none of them turned into a baby. I’m going to let go of my disappointment and go with my husband’s outlook.
As I said before, I’ve done everything I can so now we wait. Transfer will be Wednesday at 2:30. I’ll do acupuncture before and after. Breathe. Believe. Hope.
