Oh hell yes it is… a very almost perfect 4 cell, 2 day embryo with no fragmentation. Thank. Goodness.
Yes, just one 2 day embryo from 14 follicles is a disaster by any standards, but let’s face it… all my cycles have been terrible. I’ve been lucky to get to have a transfer at all every time. I’m going to count my lucky chickens that this one made it.
It turned out that they think although all three eggs looked mature, two of the three probably weren’t quite matured properly and it led them to fertilise abnormally. The message was the same as it always is – bad luck, your eggs look fine, shame we couldn’t get more of them.
4 mature eggs from three fresh rounds of IVF is truly terrible though isn’t it? My AMH is 9.66, I’m 31 and my FSH varies from 5 to 7. There is clearly something wrong with me. It can’t just be bad luck that this happens over and over again.
Anyway, I have spent the most part of the last few days in bed, crying and I am exhausted. Excuse me while I go sleep for a week.
