No frozen embabies :- (

We just found out that out of the other 6 embryos that were grade 3 yesterday (which was day 6 of embryo development), NONE of them matured any farther and therefore could not be frozen.

That's right. We had a ridiculous number of eggs retrieved, thought nothing could touch us for a mere moment and now everything is riding on the two embryos that are inside me right now.

I know it only takes one to make a baby. I know that God can work miracles.

I pray that *that* miracle is had in this fresh cycle. My heart is trying to stay positive. I have to be positive. At the same time, I am openly admitting that, in the back of my mind, I wonder if these two little ones will make it, seeing as how all of their other siblings around them didn't. It just isn't a good sign to me that our grade 1, day 5 embie dropped off and all of those other grade 3s didn't perk up. Given our age, this just doesn't rest well with me.

Having said that, I am not going to try to think too hard about it over this next week. There will be plenty of time to over-analyze the "what-went-wrongs" if we find out this cycle didn't work.

Please, please continue to keep us in your prayers. We are far from out of the woods and our hearts are VERY much still wrapped up in this cycle. Wrapped up in the hope that we might be expecting 9 months from now, right around the day my husband was born.

Don't lose hope, our first IVF we had none frozen and a three day transfer, my miracle is running around the room right now! In fact, out of our first four fresh IVFs we never had any to freeze, it wasn't until our last/5th IVF we got frozens. I think it actually happens more often than not! Sending lots of P&PT your way!

Good luck Cathy! Try not to worry too much, i have a good feeling your 2 little embabies will stick around! Thinking of you - hope you can relax and take your mind off the TWW for a little bit!

Best of luck. I'm so sorry to hear that the rest of them didn't make it. It's hard to hear of the little ones that you think of as your potential future not making it to the next stage.
At least they took you to day6 to pick the best and strongest, so I still think there's hope of things working out.
God forbid this cycle doesn't work, I sure hope your RE has learned something that would give him an idea how to stim you differently for a different outcome next time. Your ages are certainly in your favour.
Try to stay calm, and keep on praying!

Oh Cathy, don't loose hope sweetie...your little tweetles are probably nesting away in their mama's belly right now and have no plans on leaving...well, they plan on exiting in 9 months! :)

I was hoping you would get a few snow bubs, so sorry to hear but I'm so thankful that you have two and like you said it only takes one to make a baby but I hope you get your 2 for 1! :)

As always, you are in my prayers and I'm hoping for a miracle.
