2dp5dt – Nothing in the Freezer

Hospital called – our three remaining embryos aren’t suitable for freezing. They only freeze good quality blastocysts and unfortunately those three haven’t made the grade.

I’m disappointed but not surprised – over the course of 5 cycles we’ve only ever had one frostie (which failed to defrost anyway). I can’t help but feel a bit nervous though. Ok, our embryos don’t make it to the freezer because they aren’t good quality. So what does that say about the two I have in the oven at the moment? Does that explain why we’re on our 5th cycle of IVF, despite having seemingly ‘great’ looking embryos transferred every time?

Anyway I have a bad cold and my PMA light is blinking red/empty. I’m bloated, constipated (thanks progesterone!) and my stomach looks like it has been attacked by Lilliputian bows and arrows. This freezer news has made me feel a bit sad.

I think I’ll have a raspberry Magnum.

2 embryos on board

Very pleased to report that I now have two blastocysts carefully snuggled in my womb – one ‘top quality excellent’ (doctor’s words) and one ‘smaller one’. What a relief!

The last few days have been exhausting. I’m on loads of progesterone this time around (2 x cyclogest pessaries AND a daily injection of Lubion) and it’s giving me some crazy dreams. Barely slept at all last night worrying about this morning’s transfer. Very pleased it’s over and very pleased we got two good ones.

Now I can relax and enjoy the 2ww*. The embryologist will call tomorrow to let me know if any of the other 3 remaining embryos are suitable for freezing – 1 is at the ‘compacting’ stage which means it might just make it to blastocyst in time. Anyway, not worrying about that for now. Not worrying about anything for a few days**!

*haha

**about 2 days I reckon, then I can start obsessively Googling ‘early pregnancy symptoms’ like a mad woman
