The lab worked its magic with the immature eggs and we ended up with a second embryo! Transfer was this afternoon - FINGERS CROSSED!

The "mature them in the lab" notion was new to me, too... Of course, this is all new to me, so I just nod (via phone) and see what happens! Will find out more tomorrow when they call to give me the update.

It only takes ONE....so hopefully That one Embie will become your little Miracle! Our Best Friends went thru IVF the same time we did the first time (in 2009).....I got 18 eggs...she got ONE.....and we BOTH got BFP!!! YOu are by NO means out of the game! Fingers crossed that things go well!!!

I know you are disappointed to only have 1 (so far), but I'm hoping that they are able to do something with the immature ones ... I wasn't aware that something could be done to make them mature, but you may get something more from that.

A little discouraged by the results so far... 5 eggs - 3 of which were immature - ending up with one embryo out of the two others with ICSI. They'll try to mature the immature eggs in the lab, and if that works, try fertilization. Will know more on how that goes tomorrow, but as of now, one embryo. Transfer still sched for Sunday... Need some good news!!

I really wasn't sure what to expect and am not quite sure if I should be as discouraged as I am, but hopefully that one is REALLY determined!

Happy to report I made it through my first ER and it was indeed not so bad - and I know the helpful words here helped ensure that was the case! Recovery process today was pretty smooth - minimal pain so far, a lovely two hour nap and haven't picked up the blackberry for work all day. Results come tomorrow!
