My doctor called me today. Randomly. To you know, chat, I guess?
We briefly touched on the fact that out of 9 embryos, we only ended up with 1. Yes, it was normal, but we lost 8. I asked her, “what do we do to get more than 1 blast on day 5?”
Apparently, that is a million (or is it billion?) dollar question?
She said there are “some tweaks she can do to my medicines,” however she is hoping that I was having an “off month, egg/ovary wise” during my first IVF, and that this isn’t an egg quality issue.
Egg. Quality. Issue. 😦
Tweaks and off months aside, I’m still struggling with my less than stellar (understatement) first IVF, and now I don’t have much confidence moving forward.
I know so many people with multiple embryos on ice, and at this point, I’m just so envious. I keep thinking, why? not? me? Why is this so hard for me?
