Fert Report

I learned yet again today that it pays to self-advocate and speak your mind. The embryologist called me this morning per Dr. S's instructions to let me know that of my 13 eggs retrieved 12 were mature and fertilized with ICSI and 10 little embryos are growing strong as I type this! Last cycle I had 19 retrieved, 16 were mature and fertilized with ICSI, and we ended up with 8 blasts to freeze, so if this cycle is anything like last I'm hoping to have at least 5 blasts. I was so worried that I'd only have a few mature and even less growing, so I'm very pleased with this news! The embryologist told me that in both of my IVF cycles I've had higher than average fert report and said that she expects me to have some great embryos to transfer to K this week. Tomorrow we'll get a call to let us know if we are doing a day 3 or day 5 transfer.

I am so sorry you have gone throught what you have. I came across Myles video montoge and you have no idea how close our stories are realted. I even posted about you on our blog. I lost my son 3 days ago after he fought for 3 longs days after being delivered early at 26 weeks due to pre-e and Hellp. He also had severe IUGR and was 13oz at birth. My prayers go out to you and widh you the best of luck.

That's a great report, don't be so hard on yourself. Does you doctor do 3 day transfers? Just wondering cause a lot of doctors seem to be going the 3 day route more often now.

Congrats!
I just came across your blog, and saw the video in memory of Myles. It was beautiful and it made me cry. I am looking forward to following your surrogacy journey.

Sounds wonderful Niki!!! I agree though that you should get the fertilization report. I was notified every single day of my embies progress and it helped so much!

*fingers crossed*
