Transfer Update

Hi Ladies,

I had transfer yesterday & stayed in bed the rest of the day. I am up today but will be taking it easy. I want these embies to stick around more than anything else in the world. Out of the 13 eggs they retrieved only 5 fertilized & only 3 made it to day 3. I had more retrieved this time @ a more even range of growth, most being between 18 -22 so the protocol was good, but they had trouble fertilizing & growing. I am sure this is because of the flare I had 7 weeks ago. You see my T1 & T2 had went up so high & this affects implantation & damages eggs. I have been doing IVIG & the #'s came down nicely but it really takes 17 weeks to get past the damage. My RI only had me wait 4 weeks due to my age, we didn't want to lose a lot of time & since my #'s weren't high for very long he thought I should go ahead & TTC. In previous cycles most of my eggs fert & all grew & most were 8 cell but the smallest was 6 cell, so this was different.

They put back 3 embies, 2 - 8 cell & 1 - 6 cell. They don't grade embies @ RMA but Dr. said they were good/fair. The 6 looks fragmented & one of the 8 a little. The other 8 looks pretty good. I would love if @ least 2 of them would stick around!!! I would like for my future child to have a sibling & Iif I can have twins I will feel my life can fianally move on beyond the all consuming TTC stage. He did say I have a 40%-50% chance of success so I am praying hard!!! I am trying to attach the photo of the embies but it doesn't want to paste.

I need lots of prayers & sticky vibes!!!!!

Lisa,

I am happy you got through your transfer okay, and that your dr is so optimistic!! Take it easy, don't stress, and try not to be over-active if you can (I know, it's easy for me to say!)

You have this whole board and the IVF board sending Ps & PTs out to the universe on your behalf. I am not religious, but I believe in positive thoughts, and there is actually documented research that states women who pray have better results when TTC. So, if you either pray, or meditate, or think positive thoughts it cannot hurt (and will join all those out there from the rest of us!!)

Keep us posted; can't wait to hear your news and truly hoping it's +++++++++!

Hi Lisa,

I've been following your IVF progress, etc. and I wanted to tell you you are in my prayers!

I don't know much about IVF, otherwise I would comment more!


But I'll be thinking of you...
