So my 4 beautiful eggs have now become two tiny perfect embryos. They actually aren’t so perfect in technical terms; they are a “C” and a “B”. Without giving too much information that would bore you, they grade your eggs, “A” being the healthiest and strongest. So, I’m happy that I have something, and sad that after all that I’ve been through, it looks like I’ll just get one shot at pregnancy from this round. A lot of people come away with multiple embryos that they can freeze for future tries. This would have been ideal as IVF has a high price tag- $15K. So not only is there the emotional heart-breaking pressure but financial stress, to boot.
I refuse to dwell; it is what it is and when I go in for my transfer tomorrow, I just hope there are still two waiting for me.
