I don’t think I have it in me today to write a long post detailing all of the events over the last week, but I wanted to give a short summary.
At this point I am a few days past our egg retrieval from our 1st IVM with ICSI cycle. Disappointingly we only managed 7 eggs of which overnight 4 matured. Of those 4 we got the call this morning that only 2 remain as our glimmers of hope which have been successfully fertilised.
Can our 2 remaining hopes and dreams survive to a day 5 transfer or are they going to fizzle away like the others? I have remained so positive through this process, and at the final stretch I feel like I am running out of steam and losing faith. Perhaps it’s the hormones I am flipping out on, the cocktails I swallow down 3 times a day, whatever it is I need to find some positive energy quickly!
Can anyone help? Has anyone only had 2 make it to fertilization that go on to make it to transfer? Statistically I’m told we will be lucky to have 1, 40% success rate so who knows! Would love to hear some positive stories 🙂
