- We got 9 eggs
- The ICSI which we had pre-paid for was cancelled as dh's sperm was of 'good' quality. I hope this means that the eggs had already started to fertilize before we left the clinic. We got a $405 dollar refund.
- They seem confident that we'll get some 5 day blastos, and we paid for the extra two lab days: $300
- So in total we got a $105 refund.
- Dh believes that the improved sperm quality is due to the omega-3, zinc and his regular 'maintenance' which he has embarked on every 3-4 days since we started the cycle on Feb 1st
Some not so highlights include: having to wait more than an hour between checking in and going in for retrieval. Apparently there was an emergency case the doc had to do something with, so me and three other women were all sitting there worrying about the time ticking by. In the hospital's defense they did check what time everyone had done their trigger, just in case someone was right at the limit.
After the transfer I was in a lot of pain and they told me they were worried I had suffered 'massive' bleeding. I tried to keep calm by reminding myself that it was probably a lost in translation problem. It was and after a not too comfortable check that I wasn't bleeding 'massively' I was able to go home.
We had lunch and I've just slept for a couple of hours. Dh has gone to work. I'm achey but on the sofa instead of in bed.
All has gone well so far. Please keep your fingers crossed that at least some my embryos make it to 5 days.
