retrieval

They got 5 eggs. Not really what we were hoping for, but it's more than the other two times. Neither of us are feeling optimistic, but this is how it is. I will update more tomorrow.

Like you, I wished for higher numbers. I'm sorry today's outcome wasn't what you were hoping for. I'm still keeping everything crossed for a happy surprise from one of the five, because I know you can't.

Let me know if there's anything I can do.

I'm sorry the numbers aren't higher. :( My fingers are crossed that they are really GOOD eggs that make really good embryos.

Sorry you didn't get the number you were hoping for. I know you were hoping for higher.

When do you get your fertilization report?

Hoping really hard that you get a good embryo from one of those five eggs, Rachel.

Please also let me know if there's anything I can do, hon.

Fingers crossed here SO hard.

5 is my lucky number. Sending you the best from London.

I will hope that of those 5, you will have at least one good embryo.

In case it wasn't clear, I meant that I wished for higher numbers for you, not for me.

Even if not a lot of eggs, I hope that one of them will be THE one. It's tough. Keep us posted.

I hope that there is one fantastic embryo in this batch Rachel. Thinking of you girl.

Sorry your numbers weren't higher. If it makes you feel any better, I only had 2 eggs at retrieval last week, but both actually made it to transfer. So, doc transfered 2 good looking embryos. My fingers are crossed for you. Big Hugs.

isn't it funny how 'better than you expected' can still feel like 'not what you were hoping' for at the same time? i'll be thinking of you and look forward to the PGD report. i hope it brings you a happy surpprise.

I know how it feels to not get the number you were really hoping for. Hopefully, you will get a good embie w/o any problems so you can have an ET this time. My fingers are crossed for you.
