of the 15, 5 were immature so NOTHING, 2 double fertilized so NOTHING and we watched 8. Ended up implanting 2 on day 3 due to the fact that they were 8 and 9 celled. We froze 3 on day 6 which made it to blast. and 2 just quit growing.
anyhow, sadly I got a BFN:( I was so bummed as I thought this one would work.
Dr. thinks the frozens are great a they did make it to day 6 blasts, so we will do a FET. he wanted to do it in September, but due to money we are going to wait unitl Christmas. Merry Christmas to us:).....hopefully.

so, what is your story?

aw, I'm so sorry. Do they know what happened? They just didn't take? Xmas it is then!!

My story is so loooong.

Basically, I'm not infertile. And please don't judge me. My DH and I got preggers last year and had a bunch of genetic testing done. We found out that I'm a carrier of a Fragile X premutation. My obgyn at the time knew nothing about Fragile X, so we wentto see a genetic counselor who explained that it's the leading cause of mental retardation and that if I so choose, I should do a CVS. I don't know if you know anything about it, but it lies on the X chromosome and causes retardation by turning off production of a specific protein to the brain if it reaches a certain level and the level expands through generations. My sister has two kids and they tested normal, so though I'd be in the clear, but nope. My baby was the first in the family to ever have the full mutation. DH and I made the extremely hard decision of terminating my pregnancy. This is where I ask you to not judge. It's not that we necessarily couldn't handle a mentally retarded child, but I didn't want to put my potential other children in that position. Anyhow, the only way of possibly having a pregnancy with 95% chance of not having a fragile x child (instead of 50/50) was to do IVF with PGD. Also, it turns out the the premutation that I have causes low ovarian function. UGH. While we were going through the process we then find out that my DH has 4% morphology and is borderline infertile as well, which also means that our last pregnancy was basically a fluke. The craziest part is that I have two sisters who we found out are also carriers. One has two normal boys and the other was 8 months pregnant at the time we found all of this out. We found out last week that my niece is normal!!

I had my E/R this morning. 6 mature eggs, 1 immature. They now need to survive the fertilization, extraction of a single cell, test negative for fragile x, and get implanted on Day 5 (Saturday).

That's my story. Thanks for "listening"

also, one of my closest friends did FET and now has beautiful twins. She attributes the success to not having to deal with all the drugs and the stress, so I just know it'll work for you!

Bless your heart. You certainly have been through the ringer. I am not judging you at all. I know as well as the rest how hard all of this is. You have to do what you know is right for you and your family.

I am so glad that er went well. I will pray that everything is on the up and up and Saturday will be a fantastic day. Then on to the 2ww. Will you POAS?

They have no idea why my embies didn't make it. They thought they were picture perfect, and I was picture perfect as well. Oh well. They are very optimisic about my frozen babies. I have had one FET and it too was unsucccesful, so.....
If only all this didn't cost so much money.

Where are you doing your procedure at?

I'm sure I'll POAS. I'm an anxiety-ridden mess most of the time, so I'm sure I won't make it to the doc to find out. I just hope my embies make it to transfer at all!!

I'm very optimistic about your FET too. I really think that if everything was perfect is just wasn't the right time, but this time WILL BE!

I'm in L.A., so I'm doing this all at Southern Cali Repro Center. It's supposed to be good and my dad's a doc and knows them, so we'll see!

I'm so nervous for my fert report.

That is such wonderful news. I can just tell this is going to be a great cycle.
Will you be on bed rest after transfer?

yep. they say 48 hours. I'll prob stick it out longer if I can. I really hope this works.

What are you doing while you wait until December? Everything you can do? Drink? Sleep? Travel?
