@jen9999:  thank you ladies <3  We got our embryo results back.  From 18 fertilized, we have 2 embryos, including one Day 7 embryo.  I know that it only takes one, blah blah blah but we are doing PGT-A testing and at our ages (38/47), there’s a very real chance we won’t have a single normal embryo.  I just never would have imagined that when we had 39 eggs retrieved in August!  

So, it was a real punch to the gut.  Sigh.  Just feeling dejected and really surprised.  We had tentatively planned on doing another retrieval anway, so we are gearing up for that, but goddamn.  I wanted a couple embryos in storage from this round.

@KittyYogi:  I am sorry to hear about your results. Did you get 2 that still need to be pgs tested or 2 that were pgs tested? 

 

I know its a real punch in a gut with how many eggs are retrived vs how many actually make it an embryo. I remember feeling similar.  I hope your next round goes better! Be good to yourself! These fertility treatments can take so much out of you! Hopefully you can do something you enjoy in between treatments.

@candy08:  they are sent out for testing now 🙁  I”m just bracing to hear that they are both abnormal. 

I had prepared myself to lose a bunch of the fertilized eggs of course, but 2 of 18 is just….. oooof.

Thank you for your kind words.
