IVF #2-Egg Retrieval and Fertilization Report

Sunday 10/7/12

Good news, my “no expectations” mindset is working so far.  Yesterday Hubby and I went to SRM for our egg retrieval.  This time around it seemed that the egg retrieval came so quickly after we started our stimulation medications, even though I stimulated 9 days this time (versus 8 days with IVF #1).  Our regular RE did not perform my surgery, but instead one of her colleagues that is highly recommended in the group as well.  The whole procedure was slightly different, but still went very well.  And guess what?!!!

Nineteen eggs were retrieved this time!  Last time only nine eggs were retrieved, so to say the least……we were elated!!!!  The RE said that she retrieved some that were smaller in size and not sure if they will fertilize, but overall, a much higher retrieval number than last time!

Monday 10/8/12

Today the nurse from SRM called and gave us the fertilization report.  Nineteen of the eggs inseminated, but we only have 8 that have fertilized.  I’m a little disappointed that we didn’t have more fertilize, but we are starting with 2 more than last time, so I need to take the good news and go with it.  She will call tomorrow with more information and we will find out if we have a 3-day or 5-day transfer.  I will keep everyone posted……
