Not really sure what to say, here.

Dr. H just called with the fertilization report. We knew something was up beforehand, because I had checked our patient portal online, and saw that there was an appointment set up for us tomorrow.

He said that only 2 of the 6 fertilized, and that rescue ICSI wouldn't be worth it at this point. Because there really is no point in waiting any longer (why stress the little embies longer if we aren't waiting to "choose" the strongest ones?) we are going to transfer both tomorrow. Yeah. A day 2 transfer. Yikes.

The embryologist has assured us that both embies look really good so far, and that our chances are just as good with the 2 day transfer as we would have on day 5. Dr. H said that he doesn't have any real statistical data on day 2 transfers, but that he would estimate at least (he made sure to emphasise that) a 40-50% chance.

So, excuse me while I freak out a bit, and try to wrap my head around not having anything to freeze (so long, back up plan!). Tomorrow is going to be rough.

Oy... I'm sorry the news isn't better.

Hoping and praying that your two little embies do remarkably well overnight and that the transfer goes smoothly!

I know the feeling. You do feel like there is more pressure on the cycle to work with no frosties. But there is no reason it won't!!! 2 is still a great amount of embies and I will be thinking of you tomorrow and every day while you're in the 2ww. Hope you have a house full of food and movies so you can rest!!
Love you :)

Oh and one more thing-a good friend and seasoned IVF'er said she has been told embies like developing more in the womb than the lab, so hope that makes you feel better about a Day 2 transfer!xx

That's disappointing news, however it's pretty great to have two to transfer. Imagine not even having that after all you've been through. This really could work!

Oh no! I'm sorry this wasn't good news for you.

I hate silver linings right now...but everyone else has said it and I was totally thinking it when I read this- you're still working with two happy embies! Keep hoping for them...I am!!!

Thinking of you. Lots and lots of sticky baby thoughts.
