Hi Ladies,

Thank you for your well wishes. I may have ET tomorrow but they won't tell me until than. If not it will be 5dt on Monday. I was a little disappointed that out of the 13 eggs they RET only 5 fertilized. This is far less than in my previous cycles. IVF #1 11 RET 9 Fert, IVF #2 10 RET 8 fert. I am sure that is is due to egg quality as I was postponed a cycle due to a high T1, T2 which causes egg damage. The t #'s have come down quite a bit with the help of IVIG but I did read another post that says it could take up to 17 weeks with low #'s for fully undamaged eggs. DB didn't want to make me wait that long since my #'s were't high like that for very long & I am 41 so lost time doesn't help. I am praying that the 5 are developing nicely & will be really good quality so I can get a BFP, & then work on making this PG last with DB treaments.

Any spare prayers you have please send my way!!!!

Thanks!!

Lisa

Lisa,

I know you are comparing it to previous tries that had more eggs fertilized, but I think 5 fertilized eggs is a lot!! Probably enough for this transfer, and another one, just in case (unless they decide to transfer all five).

I really hope this is the IVF that will result in your long-awaited BFP!!! Sending you +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ thoughts, and sticky baby dust!

Warm best wishes, take good care of yourself,

Lisa
