Heading for Day 5!

Filed under: IVF #1 Round 2 — by Jess @ 10:46 pm

Given how my first cycle went and how the start of this cycle went, I keep waiting for something to happen. Before my retrieval I was convinced that we would have very few eggs. Wrong, we got 28. Then I figured that the fertilization would be crappy due to the insurance saying Jeff’s sperm samples were just above what they required for ICSI. Wrong, my some divine act his sample from that day fit into the insurance criteria and they did ICSI after all. Then I figured most of them wouldn’t fertilize, good Lord was I wrong about that, 18 of them did. So after all of that good luck I was really scared of what would happen today when the clinic called to tell me if we would be doing a day 3 (today) or day 5 transfer (Wednesday). Well they called this morning and told me we are going for a day 5. I was so excited I almost didn’t think to ask how many embryos are still with us. But I did and guess what they told me!!! 15 are still kicking!! Holy crap!

Jeff and I have decided to transfer two embryos on Wednesday. This was such a hard stimulation cycle, physically and emotionally, that I want to increase our chances of having this work out in the end. I was surprised that Jeff went along with it so willingly when I brought it up to him. He had been very fearful of twins so I didn’t know how he would react, but he is okay with it.

Things are looking up around here and I couldn’t be happier!!!



  1. OK so I’d lost you but now I’ve FOUND you and I couldn’t be HAPPIER for you!!! WHOA! YAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYY! (can you hear me yellin’ all the way from Virginia?) 🙂

    That is fanfuckingtabulous!

    I was TWO WEEKS last with my period (horrible!), so now I’ve just started taking BCP’s. I should get my schedule today or tomorrow, but I figure transfer will be around the end of the month.

    So excited for you! Just, YAY!
