Waiting on embryo news

Hi, I'm new to this. Just had my egg retrieval yesterday and they found 11 eggs which is positive. Feeling a bit uncomfortable after the procedure and not too keen on the progesterone but keeping telling myself that will get through this stage as I managed the injections okay. Waiting on phone call today to see how many have been fertilised. My SO and I have been trying for two years and it has been a roller coaster of emotions getting to this stage but can't believe we are here!! Keeping my fingers crossed for today that there are good number of embryos today. All the best to everyone else going through this and glad I found this website to share x

Hi

The waiting on the call is the hardest part... I was just sat staring at my phone for what seemed an eternity, when I needed a wee it went with me, I dare not take my eyes off of it!!!

The site is amazing and the ladies (and gents) on here are some of the best people you'll ever find, we are all here to help and the support is genuine x

Good luck for your call this morning, they do try to call before 10/11am

Thinking of you. I found the wait for embryo fertilization results as bad as the 2ww. It is a tough process but there can be a light at the end of the tunnel. After going through 2 full rounds of IVF and a bunch of transfers (that after years of trying), we are expecting a little boy. Currently 17 weeks. I still feel nervous about it, but it's becoming more real now....
