Not so good

Well, you know it's not good when the clinic calls you at 8:30, and they usually call at 7:30 on the dot. You know it's not good when the doctor calls instead of the embryologist too. Are you noticing a theme here?

After a few pleasantries we got down to business with the following, "the egg quality was not good." We have three delayed fertilized eggs. And for the good news, wait, that was it! One egg was too immature and the other one too mature.

So, we'll wait and see if any of the delayed fert eggs make it today.

I turned over and had to tell hubby. He's never really been through this before so I had to explain that this was one baby step up from the worst case scenario. I'm sure he's disappointed, but he's his usual strong, pragmatic self.

There is no sobbing today but just a few tears as he snuggled me.

Mentally, I think I have already packed my bags on this cycle. It will take me about half an hour to pack up my stuff at the hotel and get the hell out of dodge. We could be on the road tomorrow to our new house in a new state.



  1. Im not sure what delayed fertilized eggs mean but I can tell by your tone that it's not the ideal situation. Im so sorry. :(

    I noticed on your first round you only retrieved 3 eggs and you got 1 good one so maybe there is still good news to come?

    We've been trying on our own for six months with no luck and it's already wearing me down. I dont think I will have it in me to move to the next steps. You are very strong. :)

    Hopefully you will be able to find joy and blessings even through this tough time. Good luck. I'll be checking in on ya.

  2. To explain the overmature and immature eggs are out of the running completely. The delayed fert eggs are still possible to fertilize but that usually happens within the 24 hours. It's definitely NOT a good thing but there is still a slight sliver of hope.

  3. Ugh, I'm so sorry, that sounds awful. I hope you get a miracle, still, but it doesn't sound likely from what you've said. Still, I'll keep my fingers crossed.

  4. Hells bells. Sorry for the kinda bad fert report, but you know, good things can still happen. I know, I know it's tough to see right now but until they say "it's over" it's not really over. So what until tomorrow to see how things are going.

    Where did you guys move to? I know I probably know already but refresh my memory, please!

    Thank you!

  5. My kiddos were a day behind as well!! So I'm still holding out some hope for this cycle!!

    Praying for you!

  6. I am sorry the fert report wasn't better. Like the others have said don't count this cycle out just yet. I will be hoping for the best and sending positive thoughts your way.

  7. Dang it!!! Why can't any of this be just a little bit easy?! I hate you are having this frustration and the waiting - the stupid waiting! Lots of hope & positive vibes are being sent to you & your eggies.
