Fast forward to today, when I was hoping for vast improvement but bracing for something similar. Believe it or not, Dr. Surrey retrieved 17 eggs!! Seventeen! I definitely came to the right clinic.
Of course we have a long road ahead, starting with tomorrow's fertilization report. The genetic counselor said the fert rate is usually 65% and of those, 40-50% should make it to the blastocyst stage in 5-6 days. If we could have 11 fertilize, I would be shocked. And if we get 4 or 5 blasts, that would be unbelievable all over again. Even if we have two or three blasts, I'll be pleased.
But this is one reason why we came to Colorado -- the lab. I know without a doubt that my 17 eggs are being given the absolute best opportunity to fertilize and survive.
For now, I will rest and think positive thoughts. DH got Chinese takeout for dinner. My fortune cookie said this:
