IF and the City

I used to feel sad when I watched the episodes with Charlotte failing over and over again while trying to get pregnant. Little did I know that my own attempts would lead me on the same sad journey. We've now passed 4 years in the trenches. 6 failed IVF/ICSI cycles = nothing. Time for something new - donor eggs. Success at last. Now for round 2.

Transfer ..

Well we transferred ... our 2nd embie did much better and had only lost 1 cell, had stabilised, no fragmentation. Looked pretty good on the screen.

Transfer was quick and without incident.

This is not the ideal transfer in terms of being a blastocyst, but it's good enough for me to feel hopeful. I'm proof positive that transferring hatching blasts is no guarantee of a positive result (umm try 3 or 4 with my own embies).

I asked the scientist and doctor ...'do many women get pregnant with embies like these?', 'lots, we wouldn't transfer if we didn't'. Good.

Passed a million pregnant women on my way ... lucky them.
