Hi everyone; I'm SO sorry I've been MIA for a couple of days. I just needed some time to recuperate and come to terms with stuff.

So my fertilization report on Thursday last week, was not good. Of the 9 eggs they retrived, only 6 were injected, and from those 6, only 2 developed normally.

I got a call on Friday last week to come in for my transfer (a 2-day transfer)

I was devastated! I had never even heard of a 2 day transfer!

So I went in, and they did the transfer, and they seemed really optimistic, saying that since they used IMSI, the 2 embyos were very high quality.
One was a 4 well (perfect for 2 days), and the other was a 6 cell. Both had little to no fragmentation.

Since there was no point in waiting to see which ones were best (I only had 2), I transferred both.

I spent the next few days moving between crying fits of desperation, to pleading prayer.

Then I started doing some research on 2 day transfers, and while, obviously 5 day transfers have an advantage over earlier transfers, there are studies that show NO difference in pregnancy rates and live birth rates between 2 and 3 day transfers.

In fact, some studies even show an increase in live birth rates for 2 day transfers because the embryo's are spending less time in culture medium and are back in their natural environment sooner.

I also read that some centres only do 2 day transfers.

So this research is starting to make me feel like maybe its not over yet.

I knew from the onset that this entire process was in God's hands...but I never knew the lessons would be so hard. I'm just putting all my faith into Him right now, and praying that my 2 embies are doing well were they belong.

Thank you all for thinking about me.
<3

I'm sorry that it didn't go like you thought it would. But it sounds like the two they did implant are good and strong. Remember, quality and not quantity. I am eagerly looking forward to more updates from you. So excited!!! Just wanted to let you know that you are in my thoughts and prayers!!!
