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?
