1.

Of the 8 eggs they got yesterday, my clinic did TBS (to be sure) ICSI on three.

Two fertilized abnormally, one fertilized normally.

Of the other five that were left to their own devices, none fertilized.

We are set for a day 3 transfer on Sunday, if the one little guy makes it that long.

The embryologist indicated that the egg quality is a concern.

I just turned 25 two weeks ago.

I am devastated.

It's not hopeless. It's still possible with one.

I'm really sorry to hear about the possible egg quality issue. I looked back on my comment on your last post and I feel terrible having mentioned quality. I wasn't thinking that it could be an issue, given your age.

I don't mean to be the PMA monster, but it's not over til it's over. Thinking of you.

I found your post thru cyclesistas, and I am so sorry. I can't even imagine how you feel. IVF is a crazy roller coaster, so just be good to yourself. I'm so sorry this happened to you. Sometimes there is just no justice in the world.

Oh sweetie, I'm so sorry. This has to be really hard news to hear. You never know though - that one little guy could make it and turn into your precious baby. Keep your thoughts on that embie, and worry about the rest later. Sending you so much love...

Keeping fingers crossed that the one you have is "the one." Remember, that's all you need!

Emily said...

Oh no. I am so very, very sorry.

Oh, Lulu... I wish I could give you a big hug. I know nothing we say will make you feel better. Please keep the hope alive. We are all rooting for you and that lone, lovely embryo!

For the record, I HATED when people said to me that it only takes one (I had two IVF's where I only had one embryo) but my 3rd IVF was the one I got pregnant... with just the one embryo. So, I know it's hard to hope... BELIEVE ME, I know. However, I can say first hand that there still is a chance. I'm keeping you in my thoughts and hoping for the best for you.

Ugh, that's a lot of news to digest all at once. Crossing my fingers for you that your embie continues to grow.

I am so sorry!!! I am sending BIG hugs your way!

Oh, damn. I am hoping like mad for this one to be THE one, but yes, disappointing news and I am sorry.

Damn Lu I am really sorry to hear the report. That hurts a lot.

My first IVF gave me suck egg quality and we were able to respond and adjust the next IVF round. Granted, we went DE for baby #2 but there is hope after a shit round. I have Toddlerina to prove it.

Maybe it sucks to read this. My good luck doesnt really do much for you, but take this away - the first RE told me DE after the first crap IVF and the very next cycle gave me the Take Home Baby. Take that downer RE. Stick it.

Sending you my best and hoping for this embryo to pull through. I too wanted to throttle the constant "only takes one" but dammit it is true. One. I transferred one with the current PG you know....

There is still hope with 1, of course there is, but I'm sorry about the doctors telling you that about your egg quality. That is not a good thing to hear. :( I will be thinking of you and your little embryo that could. Try to stay hopeful, it aint over til it's over :)

I'm so incredibly sorry. That has to be devastating to hear. But you know what? This one little guy, he's going to make it. As hard as it probably is, you need to try and focus on that for now. I'm sending you lots of love and one big hug.

Articia said...

Oh no. I hate to hear this. I'll be thinking of you.

Marissa said...

Oh sweetie. :( I am so, so, so sorry.

I hope so hard that your one is THE one!

I'm so sorry to hear this. You guys will be in my thoughts.

Kerrik said...

So sorry to hear this news Lulu. I am glad though that the docs decided to do the ICSI on a few just in case. I'm going to be sending your little embryo lots of growing thoughts and thinking of you.
