Hi everyone,
It seems everything has gone bad this 2nd IVF cycle.
First I stimmed for 14 days (too long). I coasted w/out meds for 5 days (destroying most of my eggs). This was because my estradiol became too high at 6560. During retrevel, It took 5 times befor they could place a catheter in my vein (this took longer then the actual retrval). They retreved 7 eggs. I do not have much hope for them becase last time I had 18 eggs but only 9 still viable on day 3. I am just bumed out!!
thanks for listening, laura

Hi laura I'm so sorry to hear that. I went through two cycles too and was so frustrated. My third was a frozen. Did you freeze any? Are you going to do another cycle? I know it's devastating but hang in there.

Thanks paige.
We will try a third time in August. We did not have any thing to freeze.

Sometimes it's these crappy cycles that surprise us the most. It happened to me on our 6th full cycle. I only got 3 eggs, they all fertilised, they all transfered and my little girl was born. (now 5).....Hang in there, you may get a pleasant surprse yet.

It would seem to me there is still hope for the eggs. Keep in touch and let us know how it turns out. Baby dust to you.
