Of the 17 retrieved, 10 were mature. Of the 10 mature, 8 were fertilized.
I am very happy with this result. Its not perfect, but given my history of pretty dismal, pretty good seems perfect to me.
I find out tomorrow how my 8 are doing. I am nervous. I have never had a great looking embryo. I am hoping there is at least one in there, dividing all prettily, anxious to become my baby. Depending on how things look they'll either have me come in tomorrow, or they will hold off until Tuesday. That I have a chance of making it to a 5 day transfer is definite progress.
If all else fails, I think we have at least found a protocol that gives us a good batch of potential, and I am grateful for that.
Will update tomorrow!
