They RT 13 eggs yesterday and we got the call today: 11 were mature, and 6 fertilized (using ICSI). They start the PGD today, and statistically, we could find that 40% are chromosomally abnormal - not to mention the poor little ones that may not make it due to trying to grow in a petri dish!

I'm trying to stay positive, but please send good Grow, Divide and Be Healthy vibes our way!

Thanks,

Julie and Alan, TTC#1, IVF#1

Julie~

Sending tons of P&PT's to you & Alan! I hope that today brings good news about your embies & yes it only take one!! Remember Laurie(lgougher), she did PGD & TR only one and now is in her 2nd trimester. Hang in there & keep us posted!

Hugs

Thanks, Julie...your post is EXACTLY what I need to see/hear during this waiting. If this part is giving me so much impatience, I can't image what the 2 weeks will be like!

Thanks for the uplifting thoughts,

Julie

Good luck, Julie! From one PGD case to another! Just remember how much your chances should be increased after the PGD finds the best embies for you to TR. Not only does it only take one, but your "one" is worth several w/o PGD. Hugs, Stacy
