After bungling my cell phone and accidentally hanging up on the embryologist the first time around this morning, we finally managed to touch base. As suspected, quite a number of my eggs were immature. I figured as much considering the large discrepancy in numbers from what we were told at our scans and what they actually retrieved. So, of our 17 eggs, only 8 were mature and 6 of those have fertilised normally. I can't help but feel a wee bit anxious about having only 6 fertilise compared to the massive 15 we had last time, but I just need to put it into perspective that even though we were told 17 initially, 6 out of 8 is really not so bad. And considering how last cycle turned out . . .
I can only hope now that our 6 little embies will be strong and go the distance! I'm actually alot more nervous than I thought and prone to anxiety at the moment. I guess this is completely normal and I should just breathe and have faith. I'm feeling totally fine today, was shocked to wake up with no trace of stiffness and cramping and feeling almost 100%. I have booked the entire week off work but I am now considering going tomorrow and Thursday just to take my mind off it all, seems silly to stay home when I feel fine. We'll see. Fingers crossed everyone!
