I had my EPU yesterday. Spoke to the nurse this morning. I had 7 eggs collected, 3 were immature, 3 out of 4 fertilized via ICSI.
I'm having a massive downer now freaking out that none ate going to make it to blast. This bit really sucks.
We agreed that this would be our last fresh cycle plus and FETs. I'm not sure how I will handle it if I have none to transfer.
How have your embryos gone from fert to blast???

I've only ever had 1 or 2 collected, and the same to transfer (never had a frostie), however I've also always had 3 day transfers as well. If you are worried about them making it to blast, maybe you can ask about getting one put back in earlier? Some FS believe they're better back in their natural environment.
Having three fertilised is still good. I hope they're busy multiplying away for you now.

Everyone is different and I'm sure you'll have a great outcome.
My last cycle resulted in 8 eggs retrieved, 7 mature and 5 fertilised.
Out of those 5 only 1 made it to blast and I got my BFP 11 days later. (Unfortunately it resulted in an ectopic pg).
Miracles happen everyday and I wish you the best of luck.

Thank you ladies.

It is such a hard journey isn't it. From my last EPU I only had 5 eggs collected and from that 4 were mature...they did ICSI and all 4 fertilised - however we only had 3 make it to day 5.
We had assisted hatching done and 1 day 5 transferred - unfortunately it was a BFN but we froze the other 2. I have since had a laparoscopy to remove bad endometriosis and so once recovered from that we will be transferring one of our frozen ones.
So I am still hopeful that we will get a BFP from that cycle despite low numbers.
I was upset when I woke up from that EPU as it was our smallest number yet - but it turned out to be our best result so far in terms of fertilisation and getting to day 5 so please don't give up hope yet!!

2 put in me
9 to freeze at blast stage (so a total of 11 made it)

I has exactly the same thing a couple of months ago..you can see my post!
I had 8 eggs only 3 fertilised and 2 made it to day 5...one was put in and one is in the freezer. Tomorrow I am 11 weeks pregnant! ( Last heard a heartbeat on Monday...still not 100% until 12 weeks!)
It is very annoying when people say it...but is does only take one!!!

Just wanted to wish you good luck. Please let us know how you go. x

All the best you get a couple to blast.
I had 3 eggs collected (my right ovary, which had the majority of eggs was unable to be reached during the EPU) - 2 went on to 5 day blasts, 1 implanted and 1 frostie.
Posted 16 November 2012 - 01:12 PM
I had 16 eggs collected, 15 were mature, 1 blast transferred and another 5 blasts frozen.

Ive done 3 cycles
first cycle 7 eggs, 4 fertilized (natural), 1 five day blast no frosties BFN
Second cycle 7 eggs, 3 fertilized (natural). 1 three day transfer BFN, from that cycle 2 three day frosties. Each transferred separately. Both took, but MC at 10 week and 8 weeks
Third cycle 8 eggs, 7 fertilized (ICSI) 2 five day blasts. One transferred, one frozen. Currently 19 weeks 4 days pregnant
That should give you some hope! I've also just turned 41, so old eggs to deal with
Posted 20 November 2012 - 12:17 PM
We have only had one treatment cycle (ICSI)
Only 3 eggs collected (shock to everyone including me as our problem is sperm antibodies - expected more eggs. Cried when i found out)
Only 1 made it to blast transfer with nothing to freeze, I was pretty devastated by that too
BUT Im currently 22 weeks pregnant with that single transfer
Dont lose hope, Im proof it only takes one. Do a search and you'll see my thread where I was so upset and worried about it.
i wish you all the best xx

any update bumble?
Posted 21 November 2012 - 09:35 AM
We ended up doing a mad dash to our clinic on day 3 as they weren't doing too well. We transferred 1 x 8 cell and 1 x 4 cell. The 3rd one didn't make it.
Half way through the 2ww. Going slowly insane.
Posted 22 November 2012 - 12:00 PM
11 eggs collected, 11 fertilised, only 2 made it to day 5.
I seem to lose alot between day 3 and 5 though as my first cycle was 15 eggs, 14 fertilised and 11 made to day 2 for transfer/freezing.
Oooo just saw your update, hope you doing well in the 2WW!

if they seem to struggle at day three, why not freeze/implant at day three?

Is that question for me? I did - I transferred x11 embies at day 2/3. None of them worked.
I took the next batch to day 5 and even though I lost a lot along the way I would rather "weed them out" in the dish than go through transfer after transfer again. It's what worked for me.
