Don't Count Your Eggs

Thanks for the love! To answer the comment about different protocols, yeah, it's crazy. I think clinics like to grow out to a day five blastocyst because that means the embryo is at its strongest, but not all embryos make it to that stage in a dish, meaning embryos that may have been ok in the uterus may not survive. My doc wanted to get to day five and if we had a good amount of embryos to choose from he would have, and the would not have put in more than two. But since we didn't have a lot of embryos, we couldn't afford to lose any so he wanted to get them in asap, thinking nature's oven is the best place. I was REALLY surprised that he wanted to put in 3. I''m 33 so the standard is 3 max I think. But since we only had three good ones and one started as B quality, it was kind of like just put them all in. My hubby immediately thought that means triplets, and it doesn't. I mean, I guess it could, but not everything survives. So transferring one good one isn't a bad choice to reduce the chance of multiples. I want a baby so bad I don't care how many! Well, three would be a lot. Oy.


Good luck, good luck, good luck!! Been following your blog everyday and praying this all goes well for you!


Sooo excited for you. Sending positive thoughts and prayers your way!


Fingers crossed all goes well!! Have been reading your blog for a while but am only starting on the ivf journey. Interesting to read how protocols are diff between clinics - ours will only transfer 1 embryo in most cases and only on day 5... I hope you'll have sticky ones this time round!


Great news! Fingers crossed for you and sending you lots of positive vibes. :)


Yay! So exciting! I will say a prayer for you all!


Saying lots of prayers for you. I just went through my first cycle (it was unsuccessful) so I know how you feel. Been reading your blog every day. I swear you say exactly what I'm thinking (and I'm a huge Giants fan, too, so I love your hubby's blog). GOOD LUCK!!
