A dozen and a Half

We got a call this morning from Dr. S, the IVF lab director, with our fertilization report.  Of our 46 eggs, 28 were mature and 18 fertilized!!  We are so excited!  We never expected this type of number to work with!!  Dr. S said that we are still planning on going forward with a 5 day transfer on July 27th.  He will, however, keep an eye on things and can change it to a day 3 of growth slows, which would be on Monday. 
I'm feeling better today- not quite as much pain.  Matt did his first progesterone oil injection on his own this morning as well (he helped give it to me yesterday).  It wasn't as bad as I expected and he did a good job!  My plan is to just take it easy the rest of the weekend and enjoy some relaxation, movies and time with Matt and Lucky.


  1. That is a fantastic number. I'm glad to hear the retrieval went well. Good luck with the transfer!

  2. That's amazing! And I don't know if you know this, but 18 is a lucky number. It signifies "life" in Hebrew. Coincidence? I hope and think not!

  3. That is lots to choose from! I wish you luck and look forward to seeing a BFP!

  4. Wow, congrats on a GREAT fertilization report! That's wonderful! Fingers crossed for you...excited to hear about your transfer this week. :)

  5. Holy crap, that's a lot of eggs!!!! Even better, that's a lot of embryos! Here's hoping they all keep dividing, giving you some beauties to transfer and some to freeze.


  6. Incredible!!!! Hope you're feeling good and taking it easy! Best of everything on the 27th!
