It is, after all, Mr. LastChance and I.
So the embryologist left their message. 26 retrieved, 18 mature, 6 fertilized normally.
From 18 to 6--pretty sad eh?
But you know what? I didn't even cry. I told you I had a better attitude this go around.
Two more matured and they ICSId them today, so we'll see how those look tomorrow.
Here's the kicker: after five IVFs, that's the MOST embryos we've ever had from one cycle. So see? It's not all bad.
And if two or three of those grow into good embryos we'll be happy.
I waited this long to post because Dr. M said she'd call tonight to touch base. No call so far, and it's now 8 pm CC.R.M. time. Hmmmmmm...another poor fert report and she doesn't call? Just kidding. She's been more than available to us this go around. And really, what can she add at this point?
All I can hope is that this time, the eggs looked better, so maybe we'll have better embryos. And maybe we'll transfer them into a more hospitable uterus, one that isn't hyperplasic with unopposed estrogen, one that's been roughed up a wee bit by an endometrial biopsy or two.
You don't have to blow sunshine...I'm really ok. Mr. LastChance cheered and said: "It's three times as many as we had last time!"
This is why I love him.
So it didn't turn out to be a miracle cycle, but it is far from over.
