Transfer complete

So, out of our 23 fertilized eggs, 20 were viable for PGD testing on Thursday. Of those, 14 were abnormal. Kind of disheartening... I think III was really bummed to hear that. He said "No wonder we haven't been getting pregnant...." I reminded him that percentage of chromosomally normal embryos is a crap shoot, and that, on average, a "normal" couple still has 40-50% abnormal. I know he feels responsible because he has the translocation, but it's not like it's his fault, and there's no telling whether we other problems that they just don't have the means to diagnose in 2010.

Anyway. They transferred 3- 2 blasts and one expanded blast. The other three they will keep an eye on to see how they progress, and then see if any of them are high enough quality to freeze.

My beta is on Monday, April 12 and my post op is a week later.

I hate it when "they" say IVF is a numbers game, but I guess it is. I am wishing you all the very best and hope your 2WW goes by fast!!

I'm really praying that this is the winning cycle for you. I like Jericho's "Easter Eggs"! What a great way to think of it. Have a good weekend, and may the next 9 days fly by.

Those still sound like very good numbers. Here's hoping that one of those 3 decides to take up permanent residence!
