Fertilization Report

So we have seven eggs that fertilized! I hope they continue to thrive. The doctor said this time around that my husband's sperm was much worse quality than last time, and that he should see a urologist. GREAT.

We did ICSI though, so hopefully the sperm they used were good. Keep growing, little ones! I'm going to be a nervous wreck for the next two days until we hear about how many we have left. Le sigh.


  1. Seven fertilized eggs is great! Congratulations!

    I know what you mean about worrying to hear how many you'll have left. I did many obsessive google searches on the topic when we went through this recently. (We started out with 13 fertilized and ended up with 6 blastocysts, 2 to transfer and 4 to freeze.)

    Good luck!

  2. seven is a great number! Congrats. I will keep my fingers crossed for your next report :)

    PS. I am here from Cycle Sista. We had our transfer for an FET on Monday.

  3. That's fantastic news! How did you get on with your embryos? What was the final total? I hope they all continued to grow. Did you end up retrieving any more after the first retrieval (you said there may be more maturing).

    Best of luck - looking forward to hearing your update.

  4. Sending love and growing energy!!

  5. Seven is so great! How have things been going since? Fingers crossed for you...

  6. Thinking of you and wondering how things turned out for the embryos. Did you have your transfer?
