Fert report!

Got the big call about our first report! All 3 of our eggs fertilized, but one fertilized abnormally and is out of the running.

Of the other two, one is a "2 pronuclei" (I think that's the term he said) which is right on track, and the other is a "1 pronuclei" which may or may not be normal and is still being watched.

We are relieved and thankful to have 2 that fertilized! Working with such a small number is nerve-wracking, and we knew going into this mini-IVF that we were more likely than most IVFers to have none to transfer. We are praying that these 2 continue to grow, and are at least thankful they fertilized!

Is day 3 a big make or break day in terms of their continued development? Also, it sounds like we *may* be doing a 3 day transfer (I got all this info on my voicemail so I couldn't ask), but when would they tell me that?

This sounds like great news. I hope at least one of those two do well on day 3!

Pregnant Yuppy said...

Good luck. Hopefully they'll both cooperate and continue to grow for a day 3 transfer.

Aussie Girl said...

That's great news! Our FS always recommends a day 3 transfer too. She says it's to reduce risk of them not growing out to blasts and that the 'home' environment is better than the lab environment. We might have transfer on the same day!

I totally agree iwth Aussie girl....my RE says the same thing. The home environment is definitely better. I'm praying your 2 do well.

Good luck! I am glad that you were at peace with the decision to fertilize 3 yesterday and that it continues to look like a good idea today. I hope that both continue to thrive for the next couple of days until transfer (and beyond, of course!).

Awesome news! You would probably find out on day three if you would go ahead with a transfer that day or not. Don't be discouraged by a day three transfer, though. That's what brought us our little miracle(s)!

Great news!!! I remember getting the call on day 3 that I was going to have a 5 day transfer. Both 3 and 5 day transfers are very successful...the best place for those embies is in your body, so don't worry if it's a 3-day instead of a 5-day. Best of luck!!

That sounds like good news. :) Will pray for thing to continue to go well.

Excellent! I'd say they'll do a 3dt, from what I have learned. Will be praying for you!!!

Caroline said...

Great news Hillary! Your little embryos have come such a long way and they are doing well. I will continue to pray for them xx

Rachel DeBell said...

Oh Hillary!! I have been following, just not commenting much. I am so excited for you. This is the first I have ever read about Mini-IVF so I am just completely fascinated. Prayers are with you!

Grow, baby embryos, grow! Since you've fertilized a smaller number of eggs, I suspect you'll have a day 3 transfer. Our REs were never comfortable waiting for day 5 unless we had at least 4 growing embryos. They'll probably let you know on day 2 if you're having a day 3 transfer.

Hannah said...

So glad to hear you have those 2! Excited for you and will hope and pray with you that these two lead to one or two babies! And I just read your last post too. So glad you and your DH made up, it's so easy to let the stress cause arguments, I completely understand.
HUGS!

Rebekah said...

Sounds like things are going well! With such a small number, I would want to get them transferred back as soon as possible! Day 3 and Day 5 transfers both have very good odds of working, so try not to get caught up in that. Still praying!

Andrea said...

What wonderful news...praying for continued success :)

HUGS
