We called the clinic today to find out the fate of our 4 remaining embryos. The four that were developing too slowly at day 3 but which they kept until day 6 in case they developed enough to be frozen. Unfortunately none of them made it 😦 It was disappointing news but the two that were transferred on Tuesday were way ahead and so we feel that they must be the special ones and keep praying for a BFP!
We asked why they hadn’t used ICSI. Apparently they don’t on the first attempt, especially as the sperm was fine. We were just unlucky to have a low fertilisation rate and this couldn’t have been predicted. We will definitely insist on ICSI next time, whether it be a second attempt or (hopefully) returning for siblings.
Since the transfer I have been a lot more bloated and a little crampy. My boobs are also super hard! It could be the medication but we’re remaining hopeful and there is no way we’ll make it 14 days before testing!!
