Got the phone call from our embryologist today. Only 2 out of 7 eggs fertilised. We’re totally gutted although know we’ve still got a chance. We’ve been booked for a day 3 transfer but hoping they make it to day 5.
It’s just so different from our first cycle, 11 eggs > 8 fertilised > x5 blastocysts by day 5 and two transferred, none made it to freeze and one live birth (we know we’re super lucky & are thankful every day for our miracle).
We did everything the same except short protocol this time as our clinic isn’t offering long due to Covid.
Is it just bad luck? Or could my eggs really have deteriorated that much since our last round 2 years ago?! I’m now 41.
