Good luck! Thinking about you!
Thanks guys! I saw this post on my phone while sitting in the waiting room and it made me smile.
It went well, I think. My doctor was satisfied, anyway. They were able to get 7 eggs. I don't know yet how many were mature, but the doctor seemed to think at least 5.
I'll know tomorrow how many fertilized. I'm a bit nervous waiting for that news!
This part is nerve wracking! Hang in there!
Can't wait until you get a fert. report. Did they tell you when they'd call. Hoping for a few V-day embies for you!
Good luck Kara !! Sorry im late
Well, I am a bit upset.
The doctor called me himself later this afternoon, which I knew didn't mean great news.
They retrieved 7 eggs, 5 were good, 2 fertilized, 1 abnormally. Which means I have 1 embryo. He said we will do a 3 day transfer, which they always do when there is only one, so it's nothing to do with what that embryo is looking like. I know it only takes one, but I was hoping for a better chance than this!
I am trying to stay positive, but I just want to cry.
I am so sorry Kara. Please try to stay positive. I know it is very hard but like you said it only takes one. I'll keep you in my T&P.
:bigarmhug: I'm sorry you didn't get the news you were hoping for. I know exactly what you are feeling as I've been through it 3 times. Hoping that this is a very strong embie and will be you baby in 9 months.
I'm so sorry it didn't go the way you had hoped. It does only take one but I understand that is no consolation right now. Hang in there and try to take care of yourself. I'll continue to keep you and your family in my T&Ps.
Ditto, sending hugs and prayers. A month ago there was a news story about a woman having a miracle baby with just one sperm and one frozen egg (from Ohio)... miracles happen.
I am having such a hard time today. I've always felt that positive thinking really helps with physical health, but I'm so upset. I am just feeling like it failed already. So how do I snap out of it by tomorrow? I am scared the one embryo won't even make it to tomorrow. And then if we do transfer it, how do I survive the next two weeks? How do I keep the negative thoughts out?
When I asked the doctor yesterday if there was any hope of this working, he said absolutely, not to lose hope and that single embryo transfers in a person my age work about 50% of the time, with about 33% successful pregnancy rate. I asked if this included 3-day transfers and he said yes, the only reason they keep the embryos to 5 days is when they have several to choose from and there is no increased value to having a single embryo out for the extra 2 days.
This is just so hard.
Thank you all for your concern, and positive thoughts/prayers, it means a lot.
Big hugs!! You are not out of this yet. There is ALWAYS hope. And hope is such a powerful thing. I know that it's expectation vs. reality at this point but your reality is that you still have a chance. I'm optimistic that the doctor seems optimistic. What time is your transfer tomorrow? Big hugs.
:bighug: I know it's hard to remain positive when things are looking down. Remember it's not over and there still is a chance.
My 2nd RE always did 3dts when there weren't many embies.
Kara, hope you are feeling better and things are going well for you. Thinking of you!
Kara, I'm sending you lots of positive thoughts! How are you doing? :bigarmhug:
