Fertilization report


Husband got the call today. The lab called my work number first but moved on to his cell phone when I wasn't there to answer. So things look like this: out of 23 eggs retrieved (one more than we thought) 16 were mature. Out of the mature eggs, 13 fertilized. We should get another update on Friday, along with a transfer time for Saturday provided that I have been able to fend off OHSS until then. They also mentioned transferring on Sunday depending on how things look. Husband and I don't know what to think. Part of that whole "hoping for quality not quantity" was about not having so many embryos...not more than we could ultimately use. Granted, with no idea as to what their quality would be or currently is, it is hard to say how things will look in another few days. Six previous losses means something is wrong but is it the embryos, my body, both? We realize that putting back a good embryo is no guarantee of a healthy pregnancy. So we will wait and see and I will continue to rest and not worry about what I can't control. Thanks to everyone for their well wishes and encouragement. They are greatly appreciated!
