This morning when I heard a male voice on the line I knew it would not be good. There are no male nurses at this clinic so I knew it was a doctor. What I understood from the call is that our embryos are not doing so well. When I heard that I immediately went into panic mode and failed to record or retain the actual details of the situation. My Husband called the doctor back and got the actual low down. Of our ten originally fertilized embryos eight are alive.. this is good and to be expected as it is normal for some to arrest. Of the eight unfortunately only one is currently rated as good. We were hoping for multiple embryos to be rated as great so this is a bit of a blow.
I am google-ing statistics. I am freaking out... a bit. I mean we still have eight which is amazing and they just need to make it outside of my body for one more day... well less than that at this point. The doctor tried to reassure us that woman of my age get pregnant with crappy embryos so we should not get discouraged. The doctor said that hopefully some of the embryos will make themselves known and will improve by tomorrow.
Either way we are putting back two and hoping like mad that one or both stick.
