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.

Oh yikes! I hope those 5 keep doing their thing and growing properly!
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*
Thanks so much, Amy. I think I’ll feel better tomorrow once I’m over the shock.
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.
Good luck to you! Unfortunately we have to do pgs testing so won’t be transferring until September, if any are okay. I’ll be keeping you in my thoughts tomorrow. Xxx
I’m sorry. I’ll be thinking of you and your little embies. Grow little ones grow!!
Thank you! Xx
This parts the worst – the waiting till day 5. Hugs from NYC.
It is the worst part, thank you so much.
Awwww bummer. I have my fingers crossed that the remaining continue to grow. Hugs!!
Thank you! It’s so stressful. I need a nap.
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
It sure does. Thank you very much! Xx
Hoping for your little five fighters to stay strong! I know this news can’t be easy for you – this wait is sooooo hard 😔 big hugs X
It is terribly long. Thank you very much, Dani. xx
I hope those 5 keep growing big and strong!! I cannot even imagine how hard this news and the wait must be. Sending my love.
Thank you! Feeling better today after the initial shock. We’re still in the game. 🙂
Hang on 5 little embies! Wishing you the best!
Thank you so much!
Wishing you and the 5 little embies the best of luck!! this is the hardest part… try not to lose hope xxx
Thank you, I’m trying not to 🙂
That’s pretty much the number that fertilised for me, with only 2 that grew, and 1 transferred… You only need one!
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
I know it sounds so disappointing to be down from 21 to 5 but hopefully one of those five will be the one. Crossing my fingers for you!
Hopefully! Thank you xx
Positive thoughts for those 5 embryos!! Those are your future babies!! 21 would have been way too many 😉 Thinking of you!!! xoxo
This made me chuckle. Thank you so much 🙂
Keep growing little embabies!!! I hope all 5 grow to where they need to be. Sending you lots of love and big hugs!
