I am 35 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. I also struggled with PPD and now struggle with PMDD. I am a mother to a son that was born at 18 weeks and too precious for this earth; and now a mother to a son born in August 2011. By journaling here, I hope to benefit both for myself and for others that are dealing with this disease and fertility struggles. Thanks for visiting!

Fertilization report

I've been on pins and needles this AM waiting on my call. Here's the report:

5 eggs retrieved
All 5 ICSI'd (fertilized by injecting in sperm since I had so few eggs)
1 didn't fertilize
1 didn't divide
3 embryo's dividing nicely and waiting!

Pray they make it to Saturday at 9 am! Unless there are quality issues, we'll have 2 transferred and 1 to hope to make it to the freezer. That'll give us 2 eggs in the freezer we can use for a frozen transfer one day if needed. Hopefully we won't need them right away!
