14 - 11 = 3


Ok, so I was right with the "questionable quality" of the 14 eggs. 11 weren't mature enough to fertilize, so that leaves us with three.

Three.

You know, leading up to this, I thought I'd be happy with three, but I have to say (and I hate myself for admitting this), the 14 eggs kind of got my hopes up. It's just that there's so many things that can go wrong between now and transfer. I just want to go to the lab now, and get those three embryos into my body so they can get their nourishment and grow. The lab says that they look good and transfer will most likely be Monday. They'll call again tomorrow with an update.

I know it only takes one, but I was hoping for some overflow to be safe. Stay strong for us embies! Please.

I can relate. I'm a gestational surrogate and my intended mother had 9 eggs retrieved, but only 4 fertilized. We held our breath and hoped that they would do well. We had a 3 day xfer on Tuesday. Now we just sit and wait some more.

I'm hoping that your three pull through just fine.

It does only take one. I hope your three amigos stay warm & cozy until the transfer!

I'm keeping everything crossed for you hon. Three is still good :)

I almost wish they wouldn't tell you how many there is until they're fertilized. It's so hard to get your hopes up only to then find a lower number of actual embryos.

Still, you have three embryos! I wish you and them the best of luck

I hope one (or two) of the three makes themselves very comfortable.

All the best on this 2WW.
