Back in Denver
Yes, folks… we are back in Denver!
So since I have been a truant blogger, here’s what’s been up till today:
28 eggs retrieved -> 21 eggs mature -> 20 eggs biopsied -> 15 eggs tested normal
Dr Sch recommended to thaw 10 eggs and transfer back 4 embryos. (As if! As if we’re going to have that much embryos for transferring ha?)
Well, DH and I decided that we will thaw 7 eggs and transfer back 3 embryos only. We thought that 4 was just too much if they all do take! And DH did say that those are good numbers. So no scientific basis here at all. We were at peace with that decision.
So the T, the embryologist, thawed 7 eggs Tuesday morning and fertilized them in the afternoon.
This morning, I got a call from S, another embryologist I suppose, that 5/7 fertilized. Woo hoo 5! 5! 5! I know it’s too early to know and celebrate but I’ll take any good news even this early onw!
Of course, there are no quality information yet as the “embryos” are still at the 1-cell stage. She said though that they were not dark, which is supposed to be good. We’ll get the next report on Friday.
We are tentatively scheduled for a Friday day 3 transfer, 11:30am. Then 36 hours of bedrest. Then fly back to Austin on Sunday.
If it is a day 5 transfer, then that is another story!
