CCRM Cycle #1 - Day 2 ICSI Report

So it turns out that all 4 of the immature eggs that they retrieved on Saturday matured - I guess the last one matured after I got off the phone with the embryologist.

Well, so they ICSI'ed the 4 eggs and 3 fertilized ... so now we have 10 embryos!

I asked the embryologist if they find that day 2 ICSI'ed eggs are less chromosomally normal than those originallly mature at retrieval and she said they were still collecting data on that, but that they have definitely seen take home babies from day 2 ICSI'ed eggs - that was reassuring.

I asked her how they use the day 2 ICSI'ed embryos ... let's say I was able to make it to day 5 would they transfer any of the day 2 ICSI's as morulas? And she indicated that there are two scenarios for the day 2 ICSI's:

1. If you end up having a day 3 transfer, and you don't have enough embryos, they will transfer some or all of the day 2 ICSI's as well.
2. If you make it to day 5 they will transfer the blastocysts (day 1 or day 2 ICSI'd) and the remaining day 2 ICSI's will be evaluated for freeze.

The short of it is ... we have 10 embryos and we are praying that God will bless us with a normal embryo or two to transfer into my womb for a nice long, warm, comfy, cozy 9 month journey ... please continue to pray with us.

  1. This sounds like a really good report! Not sure that I understand all of it, but I'm really excited just reading that you have 10 embryos!

    Will you guys use embryo glue? We used it our last cycle and it ended up being our successful cycle. I'm all about trying whatever I can do get those embryos to stick. :)

    Praying...

    ((hugs))

  2. Still sounding very promising, yeah!!!! Thanks for posting the info about day 2 icsi, I've wondered if they ever have luck with them.

  3. That's great news! I've never had any of my eggs be matured overnight- they never even said they'd try it. They just say so many are mature and go ahead with that. weird. But, I'm glad it worked for you!!! (I've seen it before and often wondered why they never try it with mine? or they do and i don't know?). Oh well. Congrats on 10 embies. I am sure there will be a few good ones in the bunch. Have you thought of how many you want to transfer?

  9. Awesome that you now have 10 and I am so glad you asked about the day 2 ICSI'd ones as I've often wondered the same. GL and I hope you have great results for transfer!!!

  10. Wow! Such great news...I'm so freakin happy for you! So I have a dumb question. When the eggs mature overnight, how do they fertilize them? The original sample would long since be gone, right? Is another sample required?

    10 is so great and I'm so excited!

  11. Maaan, their lab just rocks. So if tomorrow's day 3, and you have 10... wouldn't that mean they'll push you out to a day 5 to 'weed' out the bad ones?

    Amazing... absolutely amazing. I *heart* FLC!
