Well That Didn’t Last Long

We’re back where we were 2 cycles ago.

14 eggs were mature (what I expected) and 9 fertilized normally. And then today I got the call that 5 were still growing on day 3.

We’re still not out by any means but I was am crushed.

I hate this. One minuter you’re on cloud 9, the next you’re standing in the greeting card aisle in Walgreens choking back tears wondering if you’ll ever receive one of these baby cards.

There’s, of course, always hope but fuuuuck this suuuucks!!

Next update on Wednesday or Thursday.

  1. 5 is still good!! It’s far better than 0 growing on day 3, which I know some people have had. I know there’s nothing I can say that will truly make you feel better, but I’m over here rooting those little 5 embies on! Try to breathe and hang in there! *hugs*

  2. Same boat… Hopefully at least a few make it. What day are you going in? I’m headed in tomorrow. Hopefully at least two to put in. Good luck to you. I will be thinking and praying for you.

  3. 5 sounds good to me. I hope you get at least one good quality day 5 embryo to work with. Fingers crossed for you.. The waiting sure does suck xox

    • You are 100% right :). I just worry about the extra layer of pgs testing. Even when we had that magical 1, it didn’t work. Twice. I think I’m just bummed that despite our best efforts we still don’t have many to test. Oh well. It’s not over until it’s over, right?

      • Exactly! I felt similarly to you this time round as I only got 7 eggs compared with 12 the first time. But the outcome was better! So this could totally work for you! X
