So apologies firstly for the essay!
I had my egg collection on Tuesday. All went well and was so pleased to hear that they had managed to collect 12 eggs. My scan the Friday before had only shown 6-8 eggs so I was overjoyed to find they had got more. Hubby’s spent sample was perfect and the embryologist’s parting words to us were “we’re in a really good position”
Now onto Wednesday and the call came with the bad news that only 3 eggs had fertilised. I am devastated. I couldn’t stop crying. Now don’t get me wrong, I never expected all 12 to fertilise but I expected a little more than a 1/4. Is this normal? This is our first IVF cycle so we really didn’t know what to expect.
I’m so worried for the call tomorrow to tell us IF any of the 3 fertilised ones have made it to day 3 and what sort of quality they are. This is torture. I really don’t know how I’m going to cope if it’s game over. I know it only takes 1 but I can’t help but prepare myself for the worst. Has anyone else experienced similar and it all worked out in the end?
No wonder they call this journey a rollercoaster! It really is 😢
