Update on everything

Sorry I've been MIA through this whole thing. Not having my own space or time to use an actual computer has limited me to what I could do.

I had my egg retrieval on June 28th and they got 11 mature eggs, all of which fertilized much to my surprise. Over the weekend, there were 6 that grew consistantly and nicely. We did the 5 day blastocyst transfer on July 3rd - only one - and we have 5 frozen for later use.

I am at a pretty low point right now - After my initial freak out at the start of injections, the trip to the city and staying with my family kept me very busy that I didn't have too much time to think about it all. Everything went fairly smooth and I am happy about that. But now, I'm waiting and I'm at home. This not doing anything strenuous and no sex and tryinig not to eat everything in sight and gaining all of my 40 lbs I've lost back, it is hard as hell!

I go for a lab preg test on the 16th, so I have a week to go. I am so hoping this worked. I am dreading a negative result....

Thanks for updating us. Sounds like things are going well. Hopefully you won't need those 5 frozen embies.

That's awesome!! My eggs are terrible so they put 3 back, so I think by them putting 1 is a good sign! Good luck!!!

Thanks everyone!

Marisol, our blast was graded as a 4AA - so they said that was very good. I am crossing my fingers for this to be "the one"

Sounds like your cycle went beautifully. Keep your chin up. 5 frozen blasts is a good place to be. Good chance you wont be doing a fresh cycle ever again. Will be looking for another update soon.

I am quite late here. Glad to hear the rest of your cycle went well. Sounds like you had a good embryo to transfer and good ones to freeze also. I see today was the beta. I really hope it went well today!

Thanks everyone. I am (im)patiently awaiting my results. I feel sick to my stomach and am dreading a negative.

Will post when I know. Thanks for the space to vent/talk/seek support.

I am so sorry! You've got five frozen embies and your chances are still awesome. Praying for you. I know it is horribly disappointing as IVF is such a crazy thing to go through.
