Day 1: The Results Are In!

Drum roll please….

The embryologist called and informed us that:

8 eggs retrieved

7 were mature

7 have fertilized normally with ICSI


Seven is a lucky number they say too!

We will receive another update tomorrow on how these 7 beautiful embryos are developing and time for our transfer on Thursday (Day 3).

As a refresher here are the statistics from last cycle (that failed):

9 eggs retrieved

7 were mature

6 fertilized using ICSI but 3 fertilized abnormally

3 normal looking embryos on Day 1 (same as today)

So, already our numbers have exponentially improved! By this time last cycle we had lost 66% of our embryos and today we are only down 11%. Can’t be upset with those numbers!

Lets hope tomorrow’s update heads the same numbers & good news!

We spent last night relaxing and decorating our tree. Hope everyone is having a Happy Holiday season!

We are hoping for a very special Christmas gift this year 綾什.
