Embryo Transfer

So today I've received that phone call that kept me awake all night to know how my eggs are doing, i had my egg collection yesterday and I had 18 follicles on the left ovary and fewer on the right side but the dr only took the eggs from the largest four follicles in the left ovary, the embryologist called me today and said all four eggs survived and one only fertilized, i wasn't sure how to react it felt then like i only have that one chance and that got me worried to be honest, I'm having the embryo transfer on Monday and then I will lave the longest 2WW of my life, I really don't want to worry much and hopefully that one fertilized egg achieves my dream of getting pregnant one more time, has any of you experienced the same and what happens in such situations, should i be worried?

  • Hey baby_hope. That happened to us - we went from 9 eggs to 1 embryo which was transferred nine days ago. We were really shocked and worried but I keep telling myself that it does only take one. Good luck with yours and with your 2ww. Xx

  • I wish you the most luck xx

  • I had 20 follicles, 8 eggs, 4 fertilised and only one made it to blastocyst. Couldn't have transfer after EC cos progesterone too high.

    I'm waiting for ET hopefully in a week as I had EC on 30th May - its seeming like a very long wait.

    Good luck. x

  • Good luck baby_hope. Let us know how you get on. X

  • Quality not quantity. It's been a fighter this far. Good luck xx

  • my sister in law had 3 eggs, 3 fertilised, 2 low quality ones transferred and my nephew was born 2 weeks ago! It really does only take 1! Easier said, but try to relax, its out your hands - worrying won't change the outcome. Best of luck!

  • Even with a good number of eggs the fertilisation rate can drop. We got 12 mature eggs on round 1 but only 2 viable embies. Although it is disheartening you have got 1 ready to go in. Hopefully it will be the one.

    Try to resist testing before OTD. Good luck.

  • Hi there. I only had 3 eggs collected, only 2 fertilised and and only 1 survived. I am now currently 7 weeks pregnant so it only takes one wee strong embryo. Stay positive. It's constantly a waiting game. The 2ww is awful but after that it's waiting 4 weeks on a scan to see if everything is OK. It never ends. Good luck. Xxx

  • on my first cycle we only had 1 fertilise and we had a day 2 transfer. It worked! The baby stuck, we were amazed, I was so worried like you. Unfortunately we lost it at 9 wks but it doesn't change the fact that it can work with just one so for your health try not to worry yourself if u can and give that little one the best chance Xx

  • I only had one embryo blastasyt unfortunately i never got the result i wanted but good luck and hope all goes well xxx

  • I love u ladies thank u for making me feel better, I was very excited at the beginning of the process, but when I heard that only one egg got fertilized lots of WHAT IF's came to my mind and i was stressed and down although i know u only need one, but reading your messages now made me feel much better, its not the end of the world what ever is going to happen will happen and I cant do anything about it, tomorrow is the day and hopefully things go well, I will do my best and rest until a week passes at least and the embryo gets implanted hopefully, as I was out and about today for the first time since egg collection and at the end of the day I was really in pain, very strong cramps and lower back pain I was struggling driving back home, not sure if this is normal after egg collection, but I'm resting now in bed and I don't think I will be able to close my eyes tonight, keep me in your prayers and I will keep u updated,

    thank u for your support lovely ladies 😍😍😘😘

  • Just want to offer you lots of luck! Nobody said it would be easy but.....!! All the best!xx

  • Wishing you lots of luck xx

  • Good luck and all the best. Xox

  • Good luck Hunny xxx
