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 πŸ™ We really need to work on that…but for now…here are my results:

Fertilization Results:

11 eggs retrieved…….9 fertilized!

Growth Report:

Day 3/4: 1-8A, 3-8B, 1-7B, 1-6B, 2-4B, 1-2B….all 9 are still growing!!!

Vitrification(Freezing) Report:

Day 5/6:

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 πŸ˜‰ 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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ˜‰

    • Yes! Agree..it’s all Him!! Thanks again for your prayers…they are working πŸ™‚ I’ll take them for my super thick lining too please! You are in my prayers as well babybird…you’re on your way! πŸ™‚

  1. This made me cry.. I know it probably shouldn’t have but I’m so happy that you have 6 Blastocysts!! That’s awesome.. So incredibly awesome! It’s wonderful your RE gave you such a nice complement too! I’ll be saying a prayer for your lining (yes.. that sounds funny, but I’ll still do it.) πŸ™‚

    • Oh…you are so very kind…I tear up whenever I see good news from you ladies too. We are all in this TOGETHER…through the good and the bad. I’m praying for you and your next round..you’re on injectables next right?! Prayers sent your way…and thank you for your prayers for my lining…it really needs that boost of love! πŸ™‚

      • Awww thank you. πŸ™‚ I greatly appreciate it. I should be on injectables next cycle, but I think acupuncture may have moved up ovulation.. so I’m going to ask for a CD21 blood test and if I did ovulate earlier- I’m going to ask for a natural cycle or two. I don’t know what’s right, but I’m hoping it will all work out either way. I’ll continue to pray. πŸ™‚ I have a journal I added you to!

    • Awww…thanks…you are too kind! We ALL deserve this and more. We ALL deserve to have great embryos that make healthy babies πŸ™‚ I’m thinking of you and praying for you during this time as well πŸ™‚
