IVF #2 Final Results

10 eggs retrieved

Of the 10, 8 were mature and 4 fertilized. So basically the same results as last time when it was 9 eggs retrieved, 6 mature, 3 fertilized. Let's hope it stays the same as last time and all 4 make it to blast.

So on day 2 they called and left a message. (They called at 9:30 which was way before I expected them to call). The nurse said that all 4 were continuing to cleave and the lab would be following up with me. I tried to call back and was on hold for 2 hours. Clearly no one is there on Labor Day. I'll call tomorrow.

On day 3 they are 1 8 cell (perfect) and 3 6 cells.  I wish they were all 8 cells, but anything from 6-10 cells is considered normal.   They all have no fragmentation and look picture prefect according to the embryologist.  It's a very good thing. 

On day 4, there was one that was a compacted morula (which is exactly where they're supposed to be).  The other 3 were "we'll on their way". She said they just rank them as greater than 9 cell and that's where they are. More tomorrow....

On day 5 there were 2 early blasts which may be ready to freeze this afternoon and 2 compacting morulas.  The embryologist was pleased and felt that we may be able to freeze them all.  She stated they are growing as they should.  :)

On day 6 we have 4 high quality blasts frozen!  :)  The embryologist was very pleased with them.  2 were 2AA and 2 were 2BB.

It's simply unheard of that all fertilized embryos make it blast.  And it's been 2 cycles now!  That just doesn't seem possible for it to be a fluke at this point!  Does anybody out there have any thoughts on this?
