Fertilization report

 Well, the nurse called today at noon to let us know how many of our eggs fertilized and how many embryos we had growing.

 We were devastated to learn that NONE of our eggs fertilized.  They recovered 6 eggs yesterday and turns out only 3 were mature. They performed ICSI on the mature ones (where a single sperm is injected into a single egg) and it didn't work.


I am still in shock. I have been crying almost non-stop since noon. It is now almost 8:30pm and my eyes are puffy and red. I feel like such a mess. I really thought my cycle just got a slow start and the eggs they would get would be great ones.

I feel so broken. Like our struggles are all my fault. They checked a lab that was supposed to show my ovarian reserve. My number was low, which indicated that my ovaries were functioning as they should be. The nurse said I had the ovaries of a young person! Well, apparently not. After 14 days of stimulation drugs I got THREE eggs and apparently they were bad ones.  I am not sure if a different protocol will work for a 2nd attempt or not. We are now seriously in debt and we have nothing to show for it. I will know more once we have a meeting with the doctor. In the meantime, life must go on...
