This morning we received the phone call with our fertilization report from yesterday's egg retrieval. Of the 14 eggs that Dr. Beltsos retrieved, only 5 were mature. Of the 5 mature eggs, only 3 fertilized. This was pretty devastating news for us. This is our last IVF cycle that is covered by insurance and we were hoping to have embryos to freeze in case the first transfer was unsuccessful. It just figures that things never go as smoothly as you want them to. Despite this setback, Greg and I continue to remain positive and try to remember that it only takes one embryo to bring us our baby. Tomorrow we will find out if the transfer will be on day 3 or day 5. Please keep us and our embryos in your thoughts and prayers.
