So much for blogging through my cycle… In my defense, you were warned. I told you, I suck at follow through. Also, things got crazy between work and cycling and everyday life. I had the best intentions but sometimes something’s gotta give. This time it was blogging and pretty much all social media in general.
So here we are about 2 months later. It probably goes without saying but just in case… That cycle was a bust. Another BFN. It was so disappointing.
Everything went according to plan but we only had about a 30% chance of it working. I responded well to the meds, got 16 eggs (the most ever for me) at retrieval. 12 were mature and 9 fertilized. On day 3 they moved me to a day 5 transfer as we were only transferring one to avoid the risk of twins. On day 5 we had one good looking blast transferred but nothing made it to freeze. I was really hoping to have some embryos to freeze for later. Anyway, HPTs clued me in to the BFN before the BETA so I was able to keep it together when I got the call and ask some questions. Of course the RE couldn’t give me any helpful information. We pretty much did everything we could (with the exception of genetic testing). RE suggested co-culture for next cycle. I’m putting off cycling again until 2013. It’s been a tough year and I need some time off for bad behavior.
