Fertility Report

I actually have a fertility report! It's not great, but it's a hell of a lot better than last time.

Now, to the nitty-gritty.

I had 3 mature eggs out of 8. Of those 3, 1 fertilized normally, 1 didn't fertilize, and 1 fertilized abnormally. (Not sure what that means). They had 2 eggs mature today, and they've ICSI'd those. So, I have 1 embryo(!), 1 maybe embryo that they're watching, and maybe 2 more coming on line.

I'm tentatively scheduled for a transfer on Friday.

Considering that I was expecting the worst, I'm pretty happy with these results. I have 1 embryo.


  1. Well done little embryo!! probably the egg that fertilised abnormally means that two sperms got in so they cannot use it. Great that they matured two more in vitro and ICSI them! so come on friday! I have everythign crossed for you!! Fran

  2. how great that they could get a couple more mature eggs later on. i didn't know that was possible. :)
    Grow little embryo!!! Hang in there and divide beautifully!

  3. I'm so glad!!! You're still in the game. I'm sitting here with everything crossed for you.

  4. Sending as many positive vibes to those embryos that I can!

  5. Cheering on your ONE and hoping you end up with a couple more! Hang in there.

  6. That's a pretty good report! Let's go embryo! And hopefully the others will fertilize...that would be icing on the cake!
