So here we go…the final results for IVF#2. I wasn’t able to have a transfer, like IVF#1, due to my thin lining 🙁 We really need to work on that…but for now…here are my results:
11 eggs retrieved…….9 fertilized!
Day 3/4: 1-8A, 3-8B, 1-7B, 1-6B, 2-4B, 1-2B….all 9 are still growing!!!
6 Blastocysts!!! 3 Grade A, 2 Grade B, 1 Grade C
I am BEYOND THRILLED with these results!!
My RE also gave me the biggest compliment…..and he DOESN’T give them out easily 😉 He said, the embryologist had me look at your embryos and I thought they were from DONOR EGGS! Nope doc…they are mine! I don’t know what worked this time. I’m going to write a whole post(stay tuned!) about what I did differently from our first protocol because I went from DOR eggs to DONOR eggs in 2 months. I know that “looks” really mean nothing until we have a growing baby….but for now…I will be happy 🙂
Now, I need my lining to cooperate. It’s never been above a 6….and that was pushing it…it’s always more like a 5.
I’ll be taking this month of Feb off to let my body rest and see how my cycle naturally goes (lining wise) and then use ALL of the big guns in March for an FET…at least that’s the plan 🙂
I wasn’t sure about this cycle….so many things seemed “off” at first…but in my heart, i felt like this was going to be the month to retrieve my babies…a gut instinct….a “mother’s instinct” one might say 😉
