Just a quick post-transfer note.

First off, 2 courses of acupuncture and a dose of valium really work for me.  This whole process would be much easier if I was doing this daily! 🙂

All seemed to go swimmingly.  And because we got Dr. Information, we learned some stuff too.

Apparently out of the 11 eggs we retrieved, all but one were mature.  10 fertilized. 4 of those fertilized with 2 sperm though. Apparently this isn’t the sperm’s fault.  The egg is meant to only let one in and 2 sperm + 1 egg end up creating abnormal embryos.

That left the 6 we had on Tuesday when they called to move us to a 5-day transfer.

As of this morning, 1 of them had fragmented.  3 were blasts and 2 were morulas.  (a little info here.) Because of my age (42) and the realistic chance that this is our only chance at IVF, we’d already accepted the doctor’s suggestion to transfer 4.  So the blasts and the best of the 2 morulas were transferred.

Now I need to eat, walk the dog and FINALLY go and stay horizontal for a while!

In the meantime, say hello to Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, and Rabbit. (If any of these implant, I promise we’ll be more creative with names!)




  2. Fantastic news!! Keep growing little embies!!

  3. great news in the hundred acre wood! now get yourself horizontal and take it easy!

  4. Stick little embryos, stick!
