Egg retrieval = 14 eggs
We had 13 eggs fertilize.
On day 3, 11 were still truckin' along.
Now, we have 5- day 5 blasts.
These blasts were biopsied today, then frozen.
It's going to take about 2 weeks for the test results... seriously, another 2ww?! Patience is NOT my finest quality. Whoever created that lame quote never had to wait for anything, EVER!
I won't lie, I'm bummed with this outcome. When I found out that 13 of MY eggs had fertilized, I actually cried tears of joy for the first time since this
There are other options if the odds don't work in our favor [which won't be the first time...]. However, depending on cost, we may have to take another year off. A year where life will go on for everyone else, and I'll be stuck on the sidelines yet again.
I'm not quite sure why I'm taking this news so badly... I knew that there was a possibility of not having ANY blastocysts today. So, I should be thankful that we have 5 to work with. But I also always look at worst case scenario... which is that none of them are normal. Which would confirm what I've felt deep in my gut all along... which is my eggs are no good.
There is some hope left, but I'm [somewhat] prepared for the worst.
