So, we didn’t get any additional embabies than what we had on Day 6 (my last post). We have 3.
I have been feeling so conflicted about this. I felt a bit gutted after the phone call to be honest and then I just felt so freaking guilty for being gutted. I mean, we have 3 good quality embryos. That’s 3 more than we had last time. While we got 1 transferred last time it wasn’t even that great quality so we have almost TRIPLE the result of last time and I feel sure we will get 1 baby out of these three little souls.
But I had my hopes pinned on more as we know the genetic testing statistically removes 45%…which would be less than 1.5 in this case. I’m hoping the odds will round down and not up. Please please please please please fertility gods, please give us at least 2 after testing. PRETTY PLEASE.
Eric went a bit shit when he heard we only had 3. Not shit but more that state where you HAVE to do something to change the outcome another time. DAMAGE CONTROL. That’s it. He started saying I had to do more, do more, do more. My response? Initially “Well all you do is take 4 fucking vitamins a day, YOU do more”. And then “OK you do all the research and find out what you want me to add and then I’ll do it”.
He went and called 2 people – a friend of ours who tried 8 times in IVF for her baby and a friend of his who is actually a nurse at an IVF clinic. I’m so pleased he did this as they both came back to him and said that acupuncture is the only thing to show real results (and we are doing it religiously) and the IVF nurse actually said to him “Well it sounds like Ems is doing a lot and you aren’t doing that much at all. Maybe you can improve what you do?”. Boom diggity, I love this girl.
So the end result is Eric is going to try acupuncture as well and try to eat more fertility friendly foods (I have previously given him a list and he doesn’t know where it is. He asked me to write it again, I told him to do what I would do – search google. I’m so helpful lol). We will see how it all goes.
So that’s where we are at. I’m about to go full health nut to get the body primed for transfer. I can’t wait until next Friday when I can start exercising again. My pudge needs to go.
Thanks so much for sharing my story and supporting me. I’m so sorry I left you hanging. I just had to process process process.
Love you long time.
