5 embryos!

Hi everyone,

They called me this morning told me out of 9 eggs we got 5 embryos! They said it’s a good number (I have no idea) 2 out of 4 didn’t fertilized and the 2 others still immature,they will update me first thing in the morning as she said they might ask me to go there on Monday which is day 3 to transfer,if not she will update me and will do the transfer on Wednesday day 5!

Still can’t believe it!its like I’m in a dream! Don’t know be happy exited nervous I’m confused at the moment! Xxx

Hello ladies.Our problem is my husbands' sperm. He has a very poor count and poor motility. We TTC for 5 years before seeking help.3 IUI's w/ Clomid and 2 rounds of IVF we got pregnant with twins. When we were deciding how many eggs to transfer, they told us (the first time) that if we weren't going to be able to do it again to go for broke. We didn't think we would be able to so we transferred 3 embryos. They told us that one more embryo only up to our chances of multiples by about 5% so I wasn't too worried about triplets. We had 8, 5 of which were graded top quality but unfortunately, none took and none were able to freeze. A few months (and many tears) later, we had the money to try again. The only thing we did differently was we opted for assisted hatching.We had one or 2 more embryos and still transferred 3.I actually almost cancelled it the day before I was supposed to start injections because I had a bad feeling it wasn't going to work. My husband changed my mind and I'm glad he did. We now have 10-month-old twin boys and are loving it. My pregnancy went well with the twins. I gave birth to them.They were fine and got to come home with me. I did have gestational diabetes and high blood pressure but that came on toward the end. Anyway, I'm so happy that things turned out and we got our precious angels and I hope things were going smooth and positive.
