CCRM Cycle #1 - Fertilization Report

I am pleased to report that on Saturday Dr. Schoolcraft retrieved 14 eggs, telling us that it was a very "standard" retrieval. He got 1 egg for every follicle he flushed. He used a smaller needle, so the recovery has been much better than the past two retrievals (stupid monkey clinic!).

So here's the data in summary:

14 eggs retrieved
10 eggs mature
7 fertilized with ICSI

Of the 4 immature eggs on Saturday, 3 matured by today. Tomorrow the embryologist calls us and lets us know if any of the late bloomers fertilize.

We will get a call on Tuesday morning to find out if we're doing a 3 day transfer or a 5 day transfer.

We are happy with our decision to do a fresh cycle and are hoping and praying for some amazing embryos on Tuesday.

Now, back to my movies and slothfull lying around!

  25. What amazing and FANTASTIC results. Polly, I am so so so happy for you. Wow, wonderful news. Also so glad you are doing a fresh transfer. It seems that maybe the double trigger did the trick for you too, but who knows. I guess neither of us will ever know. Huge smile on my face, can't wait until your next post.
