Our Journey

For Better or Worse

From 9 to none!

I know I seem to be going back and forth with our experience, but I do tend to just write about what I’m feeling at the time.

Today, I wanted to share with you the numbers game…

During egg retrieval (as some would refer to as ER), they manged to collect 9 eggs. I was excited by this as I thought that those were great numbers and we’d have the ability to then freeze some!

I wanted to remember that day, the day they “fertilized my egg” so to say so, I took a photo of my palm where the embryologist had written the number of eggs retrieved.

2014-08-08 13.03.34By the time transfer day, there were 3 left & 1 was advanced with 11 cells.  That’s the one which was transferred as the other 2 weren’t as developed.

2014-08-12 18.02.55

I was told that they’d wait until the following day to see if the other 2 would develop and they’d let me know if they’re able to freeze that or not.  Unfortunately, they didn’t make it so no frozen embies for us.
