6 Embryos!

The fertilization report is in. We have 6 embryos growing in the lab. I am THRILLED, just absolutely thrilled.

Having said that, though, I feel like that is a somewhat low fertilization rate (and I'm not sure how many out of our 17 eggs were mature: I didn't ask, and this info wasn't volunteered). I'm not going to worry about it too much for now, though. But I do wonder if this may at least partially explain why we haven't been getting pregnant?

Also, that progesterone needle looked like it was going to kill me. But then, it went in so easily. And was absolutely painless. Still, that is one long ass needle.

  11. Such great news!!! And I've been blog stalking but not commenting lately, but I had the same thing, 15 eggs and only 5 fertilized...my RE told me he wasn't thrilled with the fertilization rate but all but 1 made it, so at least they were kick ass embryos (as I'm sure yours will be). But I totally just like you wondered if sucky fertilization was maybe the reason we weren't getting preggo!! I will be thinking of your embabies this week, let's go SUPER SIX!!!
